My wife and I recently bought 5 acres of mountain land in Northern California with the intent of installing a tiny home. After much research, my wife and I realized that Timbercraft, hands down, had the very best designed and well made tiny homes. I contacted Doug Schroeder and on my birthday, I put down a 40% deposit on a 39 foot Denali. Doug agreed to build for us. Doug was in constant contact with us, sent us photos showing the progress of the Denali, and was always available to discuss any concerns and requested modifications.
After we were almost 80% completed and 80% paid, my wife and I then discovered we would not be able to get the permit to keep the Denali on our property. We were heartbroken.
Rather than force us to take delivery, Doug was able to find a buyer for the almost finished Denali! Doug then returned 100% of the funds we put down! In all my life, I have never met such an honest, trustworthy, dependable person with total integrity as Doug! Not only is he a superb craftsman, he is a superb person. My wife and I are truly sorry we can’t have a Timbercraft tiny home on our property. But our disappointment is outweighed by the most positive experience we had with Doug. I recommend Doug and Timbercraft to anyone looking for a tiny home. I can promise you will not be disappointed.
I had followed the development of tiny homes for almost 20 years; when Jay Shafer built a 112-square-foot home and traveled with it across the country, introducing what is now called the tiny home movement. Always having lived compact, even in large homes, my gut said that I would be happy with a tiny home. Those years of following the movement and its development completely online, took a fortuitous turn when I returned to my Northeast Alabama high school class reunion. Timbercraft Tiny Homes' website materialized; it was located in an adjoining town. I visited its location, met Doug Schroeder, and walked into my first tiny home. I was "at home." Fast forward four months - over two years into retirement - and the plan was set: Timbercraft would build me a tiny home and I would settle it back near my hometown. Doug responded to my list of "requirements to do this thing" unflinchingly. Family heirlooms were to fill the house with my life and my memories. Doug's first design of that accommodation is the one I am living in now. It is a 273 square foot (28x8.5 foot) cabin-of-a-home, exemplifying the quality of craftsmanship and attention to detail that I think makes Timbercraft an exceptional company to work with. Doug and his fine team built me a home, yes; but more, this home - now that it is settled on three wooded acres backed up by a creek - is a visible and aspirational lifestyle. That is the Timbercraft Tiny Homes difference. Lots of companies can build fine tiny homes; Timbercraft "crafts" a lifestyle.
Doug Schroeder, owner of Timbercraft Tiny Homes, built us a beautiful, customized Tiny House and then delivered it to our Georgia mountain location! You have to see this home to appreciate it... with features like tongue and groove pine ceilings and walls, real hardwood floors, built-in cabinets, granite countertops, tile shower, stainless steel appliances, washer dryer combo, etc. He came up with a genius design for our bedroom, with built in dresser, closet, & shelves as well as queen bed with storage & drawers underneath, and positioned it all to maximize our space in the stand-up master bedroom. He also built us two lofts connected by a bridge with rails. This home is top quality. Doug is an honest, dependable, & accommodating person, who will treat you fairly.
When I began looking to have a tiny house built, I was referred to Doug Schroeder owner of Timbercraft Tiny Homes. I called Doug without really knowing much about tiny homes and he asked me several questions and listen to my needs. He gave me options of having a house custom built and in our price range. We traveled to Indianapolis last fall to meet Doug in person and view his model home he had built for the roadshow. I was very impressed with the design and craftmanship of the model home. We knew then the model home was perfect for us and started the process of having a home just like it built. Doug personally delivered our house to us in Indiana May 2017. All of our friends and family are in awe of the house and think it beautiful. I can't say enough good things about Timbercraft Tiny Homes. Our experience from start to finish went very smoothly, and Doug was always willing to help me in anyway he could. If you are looking for a tiny house with a lot to offer for the price, please give them a call!
Doug built us a tiny house studio. He worked incredible with our special requests and even incorporated hard wood flooring from my grandparents house. Awesome. Please let me know if you would like more accolades.
Since the first phone call Doug, and his team at Timbercraft Tiny Homes, were a pleasure to work with. They treated my project with their direct attention, and were timely in creating a custom design that fit my needs. Including specific criteria such as weight requirements, building codes, fire safety and of course architectural detail. The Timbercraft team always met or exceeded the time line and completed the build exactly as promised with their exceptional craftsmanship. They created the shell I wanted and kept me in the loop with pictures, phone calls and emails throughout the build. Doug was there personally on the day I picked it up with all of the legal papers in hand and a little guidance on moving my trailer. The Timbercraft team even found ways to save me time and money throughout the process and created a tiny building that exceeded my expectations. I am very pleased with my tiny building and look forward to my next build with Timbercraft Tiny Homes.
Great company with great products. Ordered a trailer from Timbercraft and they had it delivered in a short time. The trailer is better than I had expected. Highly recommend!
In Spring of 2015 I bought Timbercraft's very first Timbercraft Tiny House. I am very pleased not only with the quality of craftsmanship and mastery of solid construction, but also with its spirit of being complete and entirely unique. Using eye-pleasing hardware, high quality windows and appliances with a solid wood interior, my house is a comfortable home. From the wise selection of beautiful, natural materials to the finesse of its painted surfaces and correctly applied finishes Timbercraft Tiny Homes are simply elegant. My house is a well thought out Tiny Home constructed with high quality components making it the best buy for my dollar that I found. I recommend Timbercraft Tiny Homes entirely.
Amazing from start to finish! After meeting with several builders in different parts of the country, my wife and I were still on the fence about whether or not we wanted to take the next step and hire a builder to construct our Tiny House. We met Doug after seeing his ad online, we immediately drove up to see the house he was selling. Although the Tiny House he had available was not exactly what we were looking for, but we knew instantly Doug Schroeder was a perfect fit for our family's plan.
