Wishbone Tiny Homes is a family owned and operated NC General Contracting company focused on meeting the diverse needs of the next generation home buyer. Their mission is to make the dream of home ownership a reality for more people by handcrafting versatile dwellings on a scale that reflects the economic and environmental sensibilities of the next generation home buyer.

Gerry and Teal Brown have been working together since 1981. Their first tiny home was built in 2001 in Asheville, NC. At 400 sq’ this timber-framed cottage has served as a primary residence, a wedding venue, and a rental. Currently this father and son team are focused on building portable tiny homes ranging from 150 sq’ to 200 sq’, but build larger, permanently fixed tiny homes up to 1000 sq’ as well. Prices for portable homes start around $25,000.
