Mini Homes of Manitoba Build Tiny House for First Nation Tribe

While the Mini Homes of Manitoba company just started building their first few tiny homes, one of them is going to a good cause. Darrell Manuliak and Anita Munn of Mini Homes of Manitoba are teaming up with Idle No More to build and send a home to the Big River First Nation community as an option for affordable housing. The campaign is called the One House, Many Nations project.


Mini Homes of Manitoba builds custom tiny homes, adapted to the cold weather, for customers in the Saskatchewan area and beyond. Their 16×8 foot, 13.5 foot tall house for the Big River community has a spacious loft balcony loft accessed by a real staircase rather than a ladder. The kitchen has a full refrigerator, sink and portable induction burners in lieu of a stove. The house is also environmentally friendly with solar panels, a Nature’s Head composting toilet and a wood stove that heats the home’s water. Radiant floor heating and spray foam insulation will help with the area’s icy winters.

The custom homes start at $28,000 and since they are custom made, the price will depend on the options and model. The company will even build a shell that you can finish yourself. Both Darryl and Anita have been building together for six years. Darrell has over 20 years experience in construction and renovation.

I love this idea! Would I be able to see one of these homes?

I am looking to build a hybrid “tiny house” style house. However I have medical conditions, so everything has to be on the same level. No loft, or if there is a loft it would be only for storage… I want a stationary 500 sq ft house..
Any ideas on type of builder?

The frustrating part of this publicity is that I did work for this company and was paid with a cheque written on a closed account and have not received my money. I am stuck paying for these peoples profits.
