We are a Brother-Sister Team Designing and Building Luxury Hand Crafted Accessory Trailer Units on the Big Island of Hawaii.
We started working together on Paradise Tiny Homes in 2019 and have been very much enjoying the creative process. We love designing unique spaces for those interested in investing in alternative solutions.
On-grid, off-grid, short-term, long-term, main house, guest house -regardless of how you choose to use them, we believe ATU and tiny home communities are an awesome way to allow people to be where they want to be while doing want they want to do without compromising what they "really want!"
As the median home price all over Hawaii approaches one million dollars, we see the overwhelming need for affordable housing.
Our goal is to create an inventory of modestly priced ATUs that are ultra-desirable, comfortable, and luxurious!
We want our homeowners to feel a sense of pride in their choice to go tiny and be able to sustain a happy and healthy lifestyle here on the islands.
The hardworking people of Hawaii should not need to downgrade or be relocated because of the housing market/crisis.
We want to perpetuate the idea that living tiny is not just the most practical or responsible choice for many, but also that you can quite literally be surrounded by more beauty, quality, and creative architecture and design than so many larger homes with bigger price tags have to offer.
We are always happy to connect with others interested in collaborating and creating opportunities ;)
