OUR PROCESS

Our goal, one tiny shelter at a time, is to add beauty to the world around us. Whether it is raw or refined, elegant or ecstatic, playful or profound, our aim is an expression of wholeness, balance & harmony; the synergy of creativity, materials & craftsmanship.

Discuss

Everything we build is a one of a kind creation. This means that each client can realize their individual dreams. Through a series of conversations we are able to discover what each client wants. We also have a design book full of hundreds of images that help us to separate likes from dislikes. This has proven to be an invaluable tool often uncovering unexpected themes.

Design

The process of design takes all of the information, uncovered in the discussion phase, and transforms it into working drawings so we can get started on building.


Build

Once we have a set of plans we build. Each build takes about 8-12 weeks, depending on the design and complexity of the shelter. During this time local clients can visit and see the shelter take shape. If you are further away, don't worry, we will keep you up to date with pictures and a log of work done.
