We offer a place to corroborate ideas, learn from professionals, get advice and help build the tiny house of their dreams and inspire others to follow their own. We offer Full Build Services, Consultations, DIY Build Sites, Workshops and more!
The majority of tiny houses are built by do-it-yourself’ers but not all of them really know how to do it all themselves. Some just need a place to do it. others need a lot of help doing it. While some even want others to do it for them.
Our solution is to offer those interested in tiny homes a place to learn, build and experience the tiny house lifestyle.
With a building site for fully custom tiny houses, built to suit tiny houses and shells for those that want to finish the house on their own as well as building sites for lease for them to put the finishing touches on themselves. We will have professional consultants on-site to answer any questions and even lend a hand if needed
As we progress we will be sourcing re-purposed materials on site for use on tiny house builds for those onsite to purchase at a discount and also avail to the general public. Materials such as old and weathered woods, windows, doors, decorative metal and other building materials.
In addition to our build services, The Tiny House Connection will be a center for education and experience for the tiny house enthusiast! We will be offering training classes and seminars and workshops. We will also be hosting tiny house meet-ups, and interest oriented gatherings.
Ryan has been building and creating since he was in diapers. Working with is father he gained experience in all aspects of construction and the trades. He gained a thorough understanding of the home building process and ultimately decided to continue his education and earned a degree in Real Estate and Construction Management from The University of Denver.
He has worked in Commercial, Multi-family and Single Family Residential Construction as well as being a licensed real estate broker. “I am saddened by the scale of waste in all construction industries. There is a way to build smarter and more in concert with our environment and I believe tiny homes are the solution.” He has worked in Commercial, Multi-family and Single Family Residential Construction as well as being a licensed real estate broker. “I am saddened by the scale of waste in all construction industries.

Ryan left the corporate construction industry to look for opportunities as a tiny home builder. He was immediately hooked and wanted to learn all he could about the new industry. “I wanted to know how they were building and what people were looking for in a tiny and why.”
After working with a local builder Ryan decided to break out on his own and find a way to continue to help in the tiny home movement. He discovered there were enough people looking to build their own tiny home but didn’t know everything they needed to get started or to finally complete their dreams of living tiny. Ryan started offering his services as a tiny house consultant helping those building their tiny home but needed some extra assistance and advice. Ryan quickly learned he could use his knowledge and skills in construction to support the tiny house movement in bigger ways. I want to show the world my vision of what tiny houses can offer and how they truly can change the world!
Growing up most of his life in Colorado, Scott spent many years living in the mountains with his mom, who was a realtor, and his stepfather, who was a developer and custom home builder. This is when he realized his passion to build could someday become a reality. He went from playing with his all-time favorite toy, Legos, to dreaming of building skyscrapers, bridges and yes, Tiny Houses.
Scott earned a Construction Management degree from Colorado State University and joined corporate America, where he gained over 25 years’ combined experience in Commercial and Residential Construction as well as Purchasing Management. During which time, he built power plants, cellular telephone sites and schools. In the evenings and weekends, he kept busy finishing basements, remodeling bathrooms, building sheds (his first tiny homes) and flipping a couple of homes.
In 2013, Scott decided to become part of the Tiny House movement. He began by learning everything he could about Tiny Houses, including attending local Tiny House Meetup groups. His interest in the Tiny House movement stems from the desire to live a simpler lifestyle, yet still have a place where he can call home. By simpler, he means less house to maintain and pay for, less impact to the environment and more time to do the things he wants to do.
One of the Tiny House Meetup groups is where Scott met his new business partner, Ryan McCue. He could tell from the first time he met Ryan that they had identical visions of a place where Tiny House enthusiasts could come for anything Tiny House related: A place to build a dream Tiny Home; learn about Tiny Homes; and enjoy the comradery of a budding Tiny Home community.
Although he doesn’t own his own Tiny Home yet, he has started the process of purging personal belongings he really doesn’t need. He is excited to one day soon live in a home that is one-tenth the size of the average American home. He looks forward to having more financial freedom, allowing him more time to spend with friends and family and his Tiny Home passion.
