2020 has been a tough year so far and we are navigating this storm the best we can. We opened back up for business in May and have been in compliance with all county and state requirements ever since.
We are thankful for good health and are doing our part to help slow the spread of Covid-19.
Here’s what we’re doing to keep our employees, customers, and community safe:
– Daily monitoring of symptoms and temperature
– PPE required of all staff and visitors
– Social distancing
We want you to know that your health and safety are very important to us.
We also want to say thank you to everyone who has continued to support us during this time.
Tiny Homes for LIHI
We are very humbled by the opportunity to work with the Low Income Housing Institute. They do great work to support the income insecure in our community and are one of the largest providers of Tiny House village shelters in the nation. Their goal is to ensure that people’s “experience in homelessness is as safe, dignified, and brief as possible”. We recently built and delivered ten Tiny Homes to the Tacoma Tiny House Village and will be building ten more tiny homes to go to an undetermined location.

We are ordering materials and are starting construction within the next few weeks! Stay tuned for photos and updates.

We were recently featured in a Redfin article about how to downsize into a smaller space! Check it out!
We’re focusing our employee spotlight this month on Todd Gunderson, our awesome Manufacturing Manager! As our company continued to grow, it was obvious that we needed expertise in true manufacturing and Todd brings a wealth of it. This year in particular we are focusing on production efficiencies as we build 20 houses for the Low Income Housing Institute and 35 cottages for the Orting Veteran’s Village created by Quixote Communities. This requires us to maximize efficiencies across all aspects of our business: use of space, materials ordering and handling, workforce deployment, reporting and quality control to name a few. Todd’s background in manufacturing for several electronics corporations has helped us systematize our efforts. This organization has helped us thrive where we would’ve otherwise struggled in chaos. Todd is usually the first one on the floor and the last one to leave. He’s a problem solver and great team member. Outside of work, Todd enjoys music and the great outdoors and is a husband and the proud father of a human services major and an aspiring actor.
