With the deterioration of the housing market in the United States, people are avoiding over-sized, luxurious homes and instead are opting for “less is more” with tiny homes.

So many have thrived living in them, and they can be incredibly beautiful and space-saving. Many small prefab home models include all the comforts of a large home but on a smaller scale – including a large discount in ownership.

As these micro-dwellings continue to be adopted, they continue to be re-purposed.

We offer a wide variety of original designs, or can create something completely new. Our workshop is located in Olympia, WA, USA and most of our structures can be shipped anywhere in the continental USA.

Zyl Vardos is known throughout the world for our absolutely stunning shaped rooflines, handmade windows and doors, and bespoke interiors. We have the best in-house 'concept to creation' ability of any tiny house company. But alongside those aesthetics, we hold an extremely high ethic of quality. Our designs are safe, reliable, last a very long time, are easy to maintain, and hold their value.

Because we make so many of the house elements ourselves, we have complete control over the quality and type of materials that compose our structures. So, our houses are healthier than most, both for you and the environment. Almost all materials we use are non-VOC and sustainably sourced. We also have the ability to omit or substitute elements for those with particular material sensitivities.

Zyl Vardos was founded by Abel Zimmerman Zyl, who has been designing and building in the residential and marine trades since 1991. Abel is known for his educational, activist and informative efforts in the tiny house world. He is a founding member of the American Tiny House Association and current Consulting Board Member for construction and design. He and his work have been featured on HGTV, National Geographic News, Forbes Magazine, OPB’s State of Wonder, ADR Germany TV, The San Francisco Globe, and in the book Tiny Homes on the Move by Lloyd Khan.

Lofty goals are all well and good, but need execution. We’re prototyping our kit on site and looking for developers to partner with to create repeating designs. This will allow us manufacturing efficiency to bring the cost down. After we bring the cost down, we’ll bring it to home owners and land owners directly.

Seattle Tiny Homes

Learn More

At age 12, Sharon Read was drawing floor plans for homes that she proudly labeled as “bare minimum design.” She didn’t like wasted space and wanted every square inch to count! Then in 2010, as America struggled to recover from the glut of unsold mini-mansions, Sharon realized tiny homes were the future. She recognized that people want to live simply without stressing the environment. She launched Seattle Tiny Homes to provide highly efficient designs for people who care about quality.

We’ve grown steadily since then. We became the first tiny home company in the state of Washington to achieve certification as an RV (recreational vehicle) manufacturer and dealership.

Prefab Building

FAQs

What's the difference between different kinds of prefab buildings?

There are four primary types of prefab buildings. Standard prefab homes are much like stick-built homes, only built offsite. Prefab tiny homes are smaller wheeled living spaces, similar to RVs. Offices, studios, and bunkies are usually one room buildings used for work or extra sleeping, and usually don't have any plumbing. Guesthouses (or cabins, cottages, or ADUs) are similar to prefab homes but are usually made smaller to act as a second home, weekend getaway, in-law suite, or rental property. More details can be found in our Ultimate Guide to Buying a Prefab Home.
