A new business is about to launch in the Okanagan and it has to do with teeny tiny houses.
Two women in Kelowna have created Little House Contracting, which is a micro home building company. Allison Ramchuk, director of business development and Tara Tschritter, president and founder of the company are working together to launch the locally owned and operated business.
The company gives people full building contracts, design services, and will act as a liaison with city planners and financial institutions.
Homes will be between 320 and 625 square feet.
“Our homes are luxurious and designed specifically to enhance and compliment the owner’s neighborhood and property. For customers purchasing a micro home to rent out, their home will create a significant return on investment and increase the value of their property. Alternatively, depending on one’s stage in life, micro home owners could move into their home, renting out their existing home freeing up income for travel, hobbies, retirement etc,” Tschritter explained.
These miniature homes could be used as home offices, a place for senior family members to live, a guest house, or even a vacation rental.
Tschritter said Little House Contracting’s goal is to create a community of micro homes in the next three to five years.
“We, at Little House Contracting, are excited to offer home owners in our community the opportunity to have high returns for low investment with minimal risk. Additionally, we value community and believe that everyone deserves to have a home to call their own.”
The business partners are having a launch event for the company on March 11th at 5:00 p.m., at Laurel Packing House. The evening will be full of virtual tours, interior and exterior design schemes, and inspirational videos to make people realize what a micro home really is all about.
