About Us – Tiny Housewives

This is Ness – Project Leader


I have minimal building experience but a huge love and passion for repurposing. I have welded, sanded, painted, and rebuilt treasures. For the past few years, I got into researching and obsessing about tiny houses and tiny house living. With a background in biology, climate change research, and a love and understanding of the earth and our detrimental impacts on it, there were so many reasons I could think of for living tiny. After researching, talking and dreaming about tiny houses, we are finally going to do it!

This is Jess – Project Bosser

I have absolutely no building experience, and to be honest I have never really had a desire to build my own house because I thought it would be too much hassle. BUT… I am fascinated with tiny house living. I want to live SMALL so we can live large 🙂

This is Shooter – Site Supervisor


Shooter has no building experience but is efficient at supervising the site, and sitting on all essential building materials, to ensure their quality and sufficient contributions to the build. Shooter refuses to endorse work without his bark of approval!

Jess & Ness – Tiny Housewives


This year, we decided to take on many new adventures, with our biggest one being our recent move to New Zealand. It took awhile for us to decide whether it was the right move for us and how we would actually do it. After a few weeks of discussing, a few hours alone, and one glass of wine, Jess booked our tickets! The race was on. There was so much to do once we decided to move countries…. Who knew?! But we made it safe and sound. We know that getting our feet on the ground and settling in to “Middle Earth” will be a transition and will take some time, but we are happy we made the move.

So many reasons have pointed us to tiny house living, including some trailing student debts. Because of these reasons, we have decided to go all in on our adventure of building our very own tiny house. With little to no experience collectively, it will indeed be an adventure! So here’s to sleepless nights, good wine, and an unpredictable adventure 🙂
