Located in the pocket community-friendly Shoreline neighborhood of Seattle, Carriage Houses NW builds beautiful custom houses for all purposes. Their tiny homes on wheels can be used as vacation homes, Airbnb properties, home offices, art studios, mother-in-law quarters or approved full-time living.
Carriage Houses NW have several customizable models to choose from.
Each of the models are made from solid wood construction with 30-year roofs and energy-efficient doors and windows. Each of the homes has a bathroom and kitchenette as well as decks and patios.
The Cedar Bungalow is on display in Seattle, Wash.
Carriage Houses NW features five models. They each have distinct designs and plans that can be customized with various living and sleeping configurations. Currently all the plans are 22 feet long, but they can be extended to 28 feet long.
Each Carriage House can be customized for outdoor living.
The Big Little Barn has a central living and dining area, bathroom and two lofts—both large enough to fit full and queen beds. The Northwest Cedar Bungalow is made to fit into the landscape of the Pacific Northwest with its cedar shake siding. The Bungalow features a narrow side entrance with a tiny deck, tiny kitchen and very large living/sleeping area with bathroom. The Gray Cedar Classic has a wide side front door that leads into a tiny kitchen, bathroom and a single loft. The Retro Metro features a streamlined design inspired by shipping container homes. It has a large covered patio, two lofts and a larger bathroom. The Vineyard Caravan is an eclectic design with no loft.
Several of the models, like the Big Little Barn, include two lofts.
In addition to building for tiny house owners, Carriage Houses NW has created their non-profit outreach program Vision 20•20•20 to help Seattle’s homeless. The goal of the project is to develop portable cottage housing units on donated or designated land. For each program, twenty volunteers will be sponsored by 20 friends to give $20 each. The money and volunteer work will be used to assemble cottage-housing units provided by Carriage Houses Northwest. This model will generate the cost of materials for four cottage housing units and build them in one Saturday.
The Carriage Homes feature open spaces to be used for any type of living situation.
