Our core team is comprised of 3 individuals, each passionate about providing the resources to design, build and dwell efficiently.

Our tiny house experience spans the United States — from California and Oregon, Minnesota and Texas, to Washington DC and Florida. Many of us designed and built our own tiny houses — a majority of us live full-time in tiny houses right now.

Join us for a weekend or just an hour, and let us share with you all that we have learned about tiny houses and what it takes to lead a successful and happy life in a smart, human-sized dwelling of your own.

Alek Lisefski
Alek LisefskiAustin, TX
In 2013 Alek designed and built his 8×20′ modern tiny house one wheels known as “The Tiny Project” — in the years since, he and his tiny house have been featured in American, Swiss & Japanese documentary films, Sunset Magazine, Houzz, Apartment Therapy, Treehugger, Grist, Inhabit, FairCompanies, the Tiny House Blog, and countless other national and international publications, news articles and blogs. Alek has presented at the 2015 Tiny House Conference and the Tiny House Jamboree.

Alek believes a tiny house goes far beyond its 4 walls and a roof, and is only part of a conscious personal choice to live in a more simple and sustainable way. Through workshops, consultations and blogging, he hopes to catalyze a mass lifestyle shift in which more and more humans turn to common sense, human-scale housing solutions, and a psychological (or even spiritual) shift towards less consumption and achievement-chasing to more gratitude, freedom and peace.

B.A. enjoyed a challenging career as a litigation paralegal for 26 years. In 2012 she decided to overhaul her life & hand-built her own 112 square foot tiny house on wheels (named “SISU”) to be her full-time permanent residence. Empowered by the experience, she is a passionate advocate for others following their dream of letting go of societal conditioning and being free to live a larger life in a smaller space.

She is totally self-contained and loves to travel with her tiny house! Since August 2014 she has traveled over 7,000 miles with SISU, exhibiting, speaking, teaching workshops and consulting on living small. Her dream is to start a tiny house community in an urban environment.
