Owner Testimonial

"My wife and I had been searching for months for the right tiny home to add to our property.  We contacted a local company that had tiny homes built on the mainland and were given a price quote of $86,000-$110,000.  The price was high for a “non-custom” tiny home, we decided to continue our search and that is when we stumbled on the home built by Dan and Ellie Madsen.  We saw pictures on Facebook of the tiny home being built, and a day before the open house, we contacted them for directions.  We got to the open house in the morning and when we saw the tiny home in person, we knew that this was the home we wanted!  What impressed us the most was the artistical value of the home, everything was so tastefully done to the finest of detail.  I’m a lover of local wood in a home build, the use of native curly mango wood in the window sills, bar, counters, shelves, and stairs sets this custom build apart from the typical package homes that you commonly see on other websites.  Then there is the huge circle window, with cute white tiles, and custom mango bar top, a perfect place to relax, sip your favorite beverage, and enjoy the view!  A frosted glass pocket door separates the kitchen and bathroom.  Many tiny homes have basic showers, or sometimes the showers are built outside of the home.  The full size shower, which utilizes the front corner of the home, boasts gorgeous blue tile, a rainfall showerhead, a round sliding glass door, and a clear roof that lets in the natural light!  There is even a place to grow live plants, it’s like showering in nature yet in the privacy of your own home, we love it!  Sleeping area is in the loft with ample room for a Queen size bed with custom storage bed frame,  a curved ceiling for headspace, sliding windows for lots of ventilation and natural light.  The kitchen size was perfect with two large windows on each side for lots of airflow, two stainless steel countertops with custom tiled backsplash for ease of cleanup, a double burner stove, a midsize refrigerator, and a dual function washer/dryer.  The tiny home came fully furnished as seen in the pictures, we didn’t need to hire an interior designer, this was all part of the package!  Step out the front door onto the custom wooden deck, a perfect place to hang out when the weather is nice!  We are so thrilled to have this dream tiny home and know that our guests will enjoy it as well!  Thank you, Ellie and Dan, for putting so much love into this build, a living work of art yet totally functional! Much aloha,"
