Designers and BuildersPlease note: this list is not all inclusive. For the most part, I've omitted those designers and builders who are just starting out and may be lacking in experience. I've also omitted some companies for whom tiny houses seem to be a sideline rather than a specialty. Further, if a web site seems poorly constructed (too few details or too many typos), I have left it out, as well.
Blogs and Stories (some personal, some commercial or a blend of personal and commercial)
