The tiny home movement has taken off significantly in the last decade, making finding the best tiny home builders as important as ever. At 500 or less square feet, tiny home living allows individuals and families to save money, live more environmentally friendly, and simplify their life. With the rising popularity of tiny homes, including television shows and tiny home villages sprouting up around the country, it is no surprise that there are more tiny home builders around the country than ever before.
We researched extensively to create this list of the best tiny home builders in each state. Some states, like Oregon, Colorado, and Tennessee have significantly more options than others. This has to do with a combination of local laws embracing tiny home living, a landscape that lends itself to exploring the great outdoors, and a population eager to live with more freedom. But keep in mind that you don’t have to be limited by geography when choosing a tiny home builder – many of those on this list will ship anywhere in the US and even Canada.
The tiny home builders included in this list cover nearly anything you could be looking for. Although many builders offer pre-made models, just as many will personalize or completely custom design and build a home suited to your needs. The builders on this home create everything from mobile to stationary homes, those specialized in off-the-grid living and green building techniques, homes built specifically for the physically handicapped, to super luxurious homes, rustic hunting cabins, funky urban caravans, and more.

Getting multiple bids is the best way to ensure you get a fair price and that bids include the complete scope of work.
