WHAT’S OUR STORY?

First…

Carriage Houses NW began building Tiny Houses on Wheels (THOWs) in 2016, for customers seeking transportable living solutions. That is still a primary focus for us, where we average 10 – 15 THOW builds per year

And then…

It wasn’t long before we recognized a large demand among our customers for cottages that could be legally permitted and placed permanently on foundation on their property. So we added Detached Accessory Dwelling Units (DADUs) to our lineup. This was a pretty easy leap from THOWs, since we had already figured out how to create awesome living spaces with a tiny footprint. Most of the time we build our DADUs in the factory and deliver them to their final location. But sometimes it’s not possible to deliver a fully completed cottage to a backyard, so we started building them on location when it made sense.

At that point…

We created a general contracting arm of the company to round out our offerings! We love helping our customers determine which option is best for them and then building beautiful living spaces that will serve them for decades to come!

Kurt Galley | Owner

I spent 20 years in sales and marketing for an investment firm before starting Carriage Houses NW with my wife Frannie in May 2016. We had a strong desire to build a company rooted in the Pacific Northwest and I’m thrilled that our tiny houses are being placed all over the region. I’m also very proud of our participation in free and affordable housing initiatives alongside organizations such as the Low Income Housing Institute and the Puget Sound Veteran’s Hope Center. It is an honor and privilege to support organizations who are providing housing solutions for our neighbors in need. Frannie & I have two daughters and an English Mastiff who keep me on my toes and remind me how blessed I am!
