Our Love Story


Our love for building, design, and reclaimed materials has been a family affair for generations leading us to grow a business specializing in custom carpentry and home restoration. We have worked in this passion for over 10 years, as “Thomas E Elsner Custom Carpentry”. Although, small dwelling builds and conversions were always part of our business, like many, we became smitten with “tiny homes” in recent years.


In, 2014, we were honored to sponsor, host, and mentor Tiny House Expedition’s build and…well, the rest is history! The subsequent growth and redirection of our business was a true “blessing in disguise” not only for our staff, but for our families. The idea of simpler living promised in the tiny home movement was the business lifestyle change we had desperately been searching for. Building tiny homes and cottages allows us to provide the dedication and craftsmanship we pride ourselves on and now, in a more refined venue. We couldn’t be more excited to become part of the tiny home movement as experienced builders and as folks that understand the importance of home, family, and “less is more”.


​We look forward to meeting fellow enthusiasts, their families, and discussing their future homes.
