THE Vision

We are the Okanagan's premier tiny home builder, located in heart of British Columbia. Our vision was born on the prospect of sustainability, freedom and versatility. The moment we saw the potential in a tiny home, we were hooked! The Okanagan has so much to offer and we felt like we were always too busy to grasp all of its glory. The decision was simple, we knew we could bring the tiny home movement into our lives and indroduce it to the Okanagan Valley. We know the Okanagan building standards are high, so each of our tiny homes is gleaming with charm, quality and craftsmenship. Each tiny home is hand crafted in Vernon British Columbia, with the ability to bring your home to you. Let Summit Tiny Homes be the craftsmen of your dreams and lets get started building your vision today!    

LIVE Simple

LIVE Free

LIVE Smart

Living smaller means living simpler. Without the stress of maintaining, paying and worrying about a large home gives you the opportunity to live simple, without sacrificing on beauty, quality and luxury.

Freedom is the ultimate goal. Debt is one of hurdles holding most people back from being free. Living tiny gives you the freedom you need, to travel, to relax, to explore and most important, to live.

Less is more! Our tiny homes embrace efficiency, small footprint, environmental impact and sustainable living. With designs that target all of these important characteristics, we all benefit.

They were patient and knowledgable with my inexperience and really helped me to understand what it was I wanted and how best to attain it. I appreciated your willingness to work within my budget and the down to earth gentleness with which you brought my expectations into alignment with reality.Thank you guys so much for taking on my project. I feel like you have made a long time dream a beautiful reality!"

Jessica 

Terrace, Canada 

"I’ve tried writing words of praise for the team at  Summit Tiny Homes several times, but have struggled to capture just how wonderful my experience was working this company. Sitting in my cozy ‘Tiny Cabana,’ I have moments of awe and adoration for the way my vision was captured in this incredible space. They’re an easy company to support being young, dynamic and partially female owned/operated (something that was important to me as a woman in business). With a healthy balance of allowing the client to dream while also being realistic and mindful of budgets, I had complete trust in my process with Summit Tiny Homes and would recommend them to anyone and everyone"

 ''Summit Tiny Homes took my vision and created a home for me that is beautiful beyond words!  They engaged fully with me from the start and explained everything along the way- they took the time I needed to get what I wanted. I trusted them fully with my build because I learned early on that they have a high level of pride in their work as do all of their employees.I would recommended Summit Tiny Homes to everyone - thank you for your creatively and ingenuity Cera and Oliver!'' 

Marian 

Victoria, Canada 

''From start to finish, Cera and Oliver worked with me, taking my notes, photos, and weird Powerpoint drawings from idea to reality. Along the way, challenges became opportunities for new ideas and extra design touches that make my home unique and made me feel valued as a client. My home is beautiful and I couldn't be happier with it. I highly recommend Summit Tiny Homes to anyone who appreciates quality work and personal service''

Liza 

Vernon, Canada 

''I worked with Summit Tiny Homes to build my dream tiny cottage, and they DID NOT DISAPPOINT!!  To say they brought my dream to reality is an understatement.  Their attention to detail, thoughtful design and quality craftsmanship is next to none. Oliver and Cera were easy to work with and took the time to walk through the building process with me at every stage, to make sure the finished product was what I had envisioned.  Actually, the finished product is even MORE beautiful than I had envisioned!  Jaws drop when visitors come to check out my tiny cottage and people are blown away by all of the beautiful details.  Thank you Oliver and Cera for building amazing tiny houses that fulfil big dreams!''

John & Kayla  

Kelowna, Canada 

''When we decided to build our own tiny house we had no idea it would be such an enormous undertaking. After feeling like we had gotten in over our head, we decided to reach out to Oliver & Cera of Summit to help us get our heads back above water and make the dream a reality. From day one, they were excited and eager to work with us. From layout and design, to which materials and appliances would best suit our needs, to best construction practices they were available to answer our questions and keep us on track. With their guidance and our hard work, we got the job done and the end product is everything we hoped it would be. We can’t recommend the team at Summit enough! Thank you for all your help, we truly couldn’t have done it with out your support''

''It was truly a pleasure collaborating with Oliver and Cera of Summit Tiny Homes. I already knew that I wanted their Heritage model, since it reminded me so much of an older traditional home, but I also wanted to put my own twist on things. They helped make my home a wee bit quirky (just like me) They put thought into the little details, such as using some leftover tile from my beautiful walk-in shower for the kitchen’s backsplash , helping to tie everything in together. They guided me through the entire process, from design to setup, and always had sound advice for my build. I cannot thank them enough for helping to bring my tiny living dreams to life.

''I placed my order for the model Cabana 2 in late Aug 2019 and my home was delivered to Oregon Dec. 20th. What a Christmas present! I absolutely love my Summit Tiny Home. I think that because Oliver and Cera built (& live in) their own tiny house they know what works. I feel the quality of my house is reflective of the home they built for themselves. They put high quality products and thoughtful design into the creation of my house. Just to name a few of the qualities I love, the high grade plywood inside the self closing drawers, my beautifully finished concrete counter tops and big farm sink. The windows are high quality and button down my house in the blustery wind off the Oregon Coast. Although I ordered a model I was offered choices in almost every detail which was a really nice. Although I chose Summit Tiny Home from the website, I found Cera and Oliver to be people of their word, conscientious in the building of their product, design sensibilities and customer relations. I highly recommend Summit tiny home and are very satisfied with the value and quality of my home''

Can I finance my tiny home?

Yes financing is available for tiny homes, when looking into your options you would be looking for RV financing.

Do you build 10ft wide models?

Currently we are only building the models certified to the CSA Z240 RV Standard which are 8.5ft wide. 

Do you ship across Canada and US?

Yes we do! We would be happy to send you your dream home where ever that might be. We use a professional hauler with extensive experience transporting tiny homes. 

Can I park my tiny home anywhere?

 Most tiny homes on wheels get put under the classification of a recreational vehicle so in some communities they are treated as such. The best answer to this question will be found at your local municipal office and certain zoning requirements may need to be met (especially in densely populated communities) .

What kind of framing do you use? 

We use only wood for framing on all of our builds. Although there are some weight saving benefits with steel studs, the cold temperatures in Canada can lead to moisture issues and thermal bridging problems with steel stud construction. 

Are your homes Built for cold temperatures? 

We can customize any build to suit your climate. For our cold weather clients we use insulated Zip System panelling and spray foam to make sure your home is toasty warm with added rigidity.

How long does the process take?

For the design process we typically allow for 4 - 8 weeks. During this time we create your floor plan, 3D modelling and a full set of blueprints. Once we have established a design your custom trailer is ordered. The trailer can take up to 6 weeks to be complete. Then the building process starts, which is roughly 2-3 months until the home is complete. Keep in mind we often have a waiting list to start construction, so it is best to get planning and start the process as soon as you are ready! 

Do you offer SLIDE OUTS on your builds?

We do not offer a slide out option for our homes at this time.

Do you have homes already built for SALE?

No we do not have pre built homes available for purchase. We only build homes once an order is placed.
