the story

Brainstorming in a Ferndale, MI studio apartment in 2016, Jay and Abby committed to each other a promise to focus, save money, and execute a plan that would subsequently take the next year to complete. In December of 2016, Jay and Abby moved out of their second floor apartment and bought a 2007 Dodge Sprinter Van destined to become their first tiny home. Abby who is a talented artist and Jay a talented woodworker created a fully functional four seasons home on wheels inside of the van. When the van was complete, Abby and Jay quit their 9-5 jobs and moved in to this new tiny home. These life choices - to pare down their life, to design a space with intention, and to discover challenge and comfort in tiny living - inspired the creation of Little Homestead. Through the passion of creation and miles traveled, Jay is now building small spaces for others. Little Homestead offers the client a complete design and build of a van, trailer, or small space with mindful intentions of minimizing clutter and maximizing space efficiency and beauty around you.
