Tiny Home Hawai'i

  • Excitement! Tiny Home Hawai'i is touring Big island filming free Tiny Home Community Conversations, educating public everything A-Z Tiny Home living, Music For The People, plus much more… Join our amazing vibe on our weekly national television show on HGTV Tiny Home Hawai’i.


The short video addresses very common question regarding Tiny Homes in Hawai'i.

  • What is the cost of a tiny home?
  • What kind of regulations are imposed, re: building codes?
  • Who is going to be building these tiny homes?
  • Where will the "plans" for building a tiny home come from?
  • Are they built on "sights" or built and moved to a sight?
  • How long does it take to construct a tiny home?

Tiny Home Sisterhood is helping to clean up our environment. Everything in Hawai'i is brought to the island via boat on Wooden Pallets. The Wooden Pallets are not collected and sent back, the Wooden Pallets remain on the island. The Tiny Home Sisterhood has collected many Wooden Pallets that currently fill landfills, or worse yet, taken out to the sea and dumped. With our unique Pallet Bracing System we are constructing Tiny Homes from the Wooden Pallets. We are using the Wooden Pallets and Pallet Bracing System for the Framing. The exterior walls that cover the wooden pallet framing is selected from a variety of salvaged materials. Similarly, the material selected for the interior walls that cover the wooden pallet framing is decided upon during the Design Consultation.

The cost of 'Cottage By The Sea'?

The cost for 'Cottage By The Sea' varies and is dependent on several factors:

  • Size: The square footage determines size and 'Cottage By The Sea' is scalable to accommodate needs.
  • Material: The Tiny Home Sisterhood likes to add color to our designs for our presentation to HGTV and our proposed national television show Tiny Home Hawai'i.
  • Location: Cost can vary depending on Location. For example, constructed on a foundation (on land) for as low as $10,000, is less costly than the expense of constructing on a Trailer, as low as $25,000.
  • Utilities: Off-Grid with Solar has a different cost associated with it compared to being On Grid with Electricity... Code Permits, Design considerations, and several other factors play a role in these variable costs.
  • Water and Sewerage: Water can be as simple as connecting a garden hose and a self-contained toilet, or, provided with all the comforts of a complete water and septic system designed to meet code. Costs vary dramatically.
  • Design: The Tiny Home Sisterhood is proud of the Design Consultation we offer. Should you be considering a Tiny Home in Hawai'i, for yourself, for Rental Property, or a Vacation Getaway, we can answer all your 'Cottage By The Sea' questions with a very easy process through our simple Design Consultation.

What kind of regulations are imposed re: building codes?

Building Codes for Tiny Homes is in constant motion as Tiny Homes play a more and more important role in Alternative Housing options. Tiny Home Sisterhood is honored to support the amazing movement led by OneIsland.orgTHIS IS TINY HOME GRASSROOTS DEMOCRACY IN ACTION.

Who is going to be building these Tiny Homes?

Where will the "plans" for building a tiny home come from?

Are they built on "sights" or built and moved to a sight?

Tiny Home Sisterhood is please to provide 'Cottage By The Sea' on Land, or, on a Trailer. Many factors have to be considered in making the final decision, such as Size, Material, Location, Utilities, Code Restrictions, Permitting, etc. We are pleased to offer our Design Consultation as a pre-screening of your needs to access all the options for consideration.

How long does it take to construct a Tiny Home?

  • A Tiny Home can be constructed in a very short span of time, or, a longer span of time dependent upon design criteria, location, and features selected.

Can you go to building supply companies and ask for building materials that are going to be discarded? Like Habitat for humanity does.

  • Yes!!!

How many are on the team?
