“The Tiny House Guide was heaven sent! Open House did an amazing job laying out the process of building a tiny house step by step. It was also an easy read with plenty of pictures to demonstrate the work (great if you are a visual person like me). Save yourself the headache and purchase this guide. You won’t regret it!”

"Building a tiny house was something we knew we wanted to do - to help offset monthly costs and make passive income! The Tiny House Guide kept us accountable, on track, and under budget. 10/10 recommend. We love our tiny house and the opportunity it brings for hosting friends and family, not to mention the passive income it produces!"

"We've previously spent hours researching everything under the sun for our tiny home project.

The Tiny House Guide streamlined the build and management process, leaving us the time and money to make this project work for us."

"Trust me, I had the same thoughts before building my first tiny house.

Today, I can confidently say that I was able to pay myself back fully in 11 months and continue to make an incredible profit from the tiny house I built from scratch.

And if I can do it - I know you can too!"

"The biggest challenge I faced when building my tiny house was figuring out how to stay within my budget & make a profit back as soon as possible.

I wanted my tiny house to be 'Instagram-worthy' but didn't want to break the bank. It didn’t make sense to spend thousands and thousands on a tiny house I wasn’t going to live in long-term. I knew from the start that I would rent it out to start making a profit.

Through my own process, I quickly learned it was totally possible to build an incredible tiny house for under $40,000 and I made back my investment in just 11 months!

After I finished my project, I realized there are tons of people out there who are eager to build a tiny house but are held back because they don’t know where to start or how much to save up.

That is why I decided to create the tiny house guide, workbook, and finance tracker to help you plan, design, construct, and finally build a beautiful tiny house that will fit your budget." πŸ˜‰

When you start building your new tiny house with this guide and workbook, 5 things will happen…

Stephanie Douglass & Kristina Modares

It all started on Instagram. Kristina and Steph both realized that they wanted to learn from and meet more women like themselves. They met up for coffee, and what turned into the “best first date ever” became a partnership that has outweighed anyone’s expectations.

Now Kristina and Steph spend their time building Open House into the education hub they wish they had when they bought their first homes. From recording for the Open House Podcast to building and teaching Open House Homeschool, these ladies are busy turning our company into the go-to place for first-time buyers and investors nationwide.

Although they no longer take clients, they have trained and mentored our incredible and experienced team of agents to help you if you’re looking to buy a house in Austin! You can visit to meet the rest of the team.
