Single Mom, General Contractor & Business Owner: Meet Christine of Plum Construction


Christine Plum (@plum_construction) sold her Houston home and put all her equity into buying a small home in Galveston, Texas and fixing it up. She did all the work herself, and turned it into a vacation rental she later sold.

But after remodeling, she got into designing and building homes from the ground up! She’s now on her fourth tiny house project after completing and selling three beautiful homes under 1,000 square feet.

This home was the first one she built, doing all the interior work herself. It’s called the “Tiny Gem” and is an Airbnb rental now. At 400 square feet, it includes a downstairs bedroom as well as a loft bedroom for kids.

    A fine use of craftmanship, Materials and space. In my similar “J” Wall design I utilize a one exterrior wall kitchen cabinet and the center wall is used as pot rack, fold down serving table and between the studs pantry. Finding an existing used Park Model with plumbing on the exterior wall should open up a LOT of remodel to this configuration with the current govenment unconcern for seniors and virus, FloriDUH and Arizona should have bunches on the market by next year. This unit in Galveston will have a great advantage with the sea rise. It is narrow enough to put on a trailer and move to high ground in the Hill Country or San Antonio.
