This Canadian Trio Builds Contemporary Tiny Homes Starting Under $69K
The three artisans of Minimaliste Houses are crafting more than just affordable tiny homes with sleek, minimalist aesthetics—they’re building a new way of life.
Acclaimed for being more than just a brand, the team behind Minimaliste Houses prides themselves on providing a lifestyle. Enabling customers to live alternatively to what has been traditionally conventional, this Canadian–based company promotes a simpler way of life—one that should be more accessible and affordable to all.
Thanks to the creative minds of the three founders—Philippe Beaudoin, Jean-Philippe Marquis, and Elyse Tremblay—the firm is spreading this meaningful philosophy one tiny house at a time.
“We try to understand our client’s lifestyle during the design process. We create our houses to maximize the use of small spaces without sacrificing on comfort,” explains Beaudoin. “As for the construction and materials, we refer to the different building codes to create a house that is safe, and that will withstand any type of climate.”
Air exchangers and vent systems are included in all Minimaliste houses to prevent humidity, mold, and mildew. While Beaudoin and his team are all for DIY tiny homes, he states that it can be dangerous to take tiny houses that haven’t been properly built on the road. Therefore, the team makes it a point to explain the rationale behind their construction techniques to each potential client.
Below, we look at eight tiny houses by Minimaliste that are both efficient and comfortable—not to mention aesthetically pleasing.
