Let’s start with an introduction!

Carriage Houses Northwest began as a tiny home builder in Shoreline, Washington in 2016. Quickly, the company acquired a space in Everett, Washington, which it soon outgrew. Currently, we are located in Marysville, Washington. We are growing quickly and are excited to offer more and more services to our clients and community.

We specialize in building park model RV certified tiny homes, backyard cottages, and other backyard spaces, such as art studios and she-sheds. We have many options to customize your home to make each tiny home a unique space that fits your needs.

Tiny has been taking us to some pretty big places these days and we are so excited to share our journey with you.

Our Big News: The Orting Veteran’s Village

Carriage Houses NW Helping Veterans Experiencing Homelessness

Carriage Houses Northwest is so honored to announce that we have been selected to build 35 tiny houses and a 2160 sq ft community building for a new village to help military veterans who are experiencing homelessness. The community will be located on the Washington Soldiers Home property in Orting,
WA. This project is the product of an amazing partnership between Quixote Communities, the Washington State Department of Veterans Affairs and the Puget Sound Veterans Hope Center. It is the 2nd village built and managed by Quixote Communities and is slated to be open mid-2020.

How Can You Help?

A note on fundraising for this incredible project: The capital required to build the tiny houses and community building, along with all the site development has already been raised! Once operational, this community will require ongoing funding to operate and provide much needed services to the residents. We at CHNW encourage anyone who appreciates our military veterans and believes they deserve our support, to make a one-time or ongoing gift to Quixote Communities. For more information about Quixote and how to contribute, please see the following links.

This is the Big LIttle Barn model, customized to fit the needs of our client and her two sons. When you go tiny, you can still accommodate individual needs. We love how this whole house turned out and wish our clients many happy memories there!

CHNW Employee Spotlight: Kurt Galley, Owner

A few years ago, CHNW owner Kurt Galley took a risk and left his career to begin his own company building and selling tiny homes. He wanted to do something that was meaningful and joyful for him and was interested in the tiny house movement and the role it would play in creating sustainable, affordable housing for the greater Seattle area/Western Washington. Through hard work, CHNW has continued to expand over the years under Kurt’s leadership and has been featured on multiple news stations, HGTV, and has been a vendor at the Seattle Home Show for the last three years. Kurt has made an effort from the start of the company to find ways to give back to the community, such as the Vision 20•20•20 project in which CHNW worked with the Low Income Housing Institute (LIHI), building tiny homes to help homeless individuals get back on their feet. Kurt’s employees describe him as a dedicated, fair, and hard-working family man who has a good sense of humor and wants to make a difference in his community.
