Has anyone else noticed that in the middle of the chaos of the past few years, so many people have been turning back to simpler, older ways? Suddenly everyone’s baking sourdough or taking up knitting. Well, that was the case for Brian! After spending much of 2020 in his quiet cabin, he built a mortise and tenon barn and got the idea to build tiny homes with the same old-fashioned joinery skills!
He got in touch with us to show off one of their beautiful THOWs, built from wood sourced from his 40-acre property in Pennsylvania! Now the homes are built by talented Amish carpenters using these long-lost (or at least, infrequently used) skills to create true works of functional art. What do you think?

So what’s the story behind your tiny house?
After working 13 years in owning/operating a successful roofing and siding company in Lancaster, Brian wanted to spend more time with his family. During covid times our family found ourselves spending more time at our Cabin, in Huntingdon County, Pa, that is tucked back in the woods on 40 acres. We never wanted to leave it was so peaceful and quiet and got to escape the business of Lancaster!
When we finally realized we wanted to move to the cabin permanently, Brian sold his roofing business to follow his dreams to live in his cabin tucked back in the woods. After putting up a mortise and tenon barn out back, we fell in love with the whole process of putting up mortise and tenon structures and the craftsmanship of it all, is where we thought how cool would it be if we could share this same experience and the beauty of mortise and tenon , timber frames, with others!
We were always intrigued with the tiny house movement , it gave us the idea to come up with timber framed tiny homes! With Brians experience in home improvements and owning and operating his own business, we took a leap of FAITH and started up Tiny Timbers.
At Tiny Timbers we use locally sourced wood, here from PA!
Enjoy a mortise and tenon tiny home built from trees in our backyard.
Whether you want to leave behind a life of materialism, live in a greener way, or create a quiet corner of the woods to escape to, a tiny home will help you focus on what matters most to you.
At Tiny Timbers, we’re here to help you create a tiny home that aligns with the lifestyle you want to live.
Our tiny homes are hand-crafted by local Amish carpenters. Compared to modern framing techniques, mortise and tenon frames last longer and look nicer.
All of the white pine and hemlock lumber used to build your home is cut and milled by us from our 40 acre property in the heart of PA.
