Small Homes – Why Go Small?

Back to Small Homes

Small homes are easy on the environment, have lower
utility bills and cost a fraction of more conventional housing.

Because of their size and simplicity, they are inherently easy on the environment, resulting in small or no utility bills, and cost a fraction of more conventional housing.

These houses aren’t built in a mobile home factory.  They are built one at a time in 8’ panel sections  to your specifications, the same as any other stick-built house. Because the panel units are manufactured in a dry, heated space, these small homes are very cost effective and saves months of construction time.

Small Home Oregon works with Taylorsmith Sustainable Construction LLC to construct your home on site beginning to end. They are a general contractor that leads the construction and a point person that makes sure everything is done right.

If you are interested in having a small home built anywhere on the West Coast, Contact Taylor Thompson, he would be happy to talk with you.
