The photos below represent just a few of the beautiful tiny houses that will be available to tour at the 2017 TinyHouseNC Street Festival.
“Mystery House” by Perch & Nest
The 2017 TinyHouseNC Street Festival is pleased to welcome Perch & Nest as the featured builder of the show. Available for touring, their 36 ft. “Mystery House” will be the showcase of our tiny houses. Be sure to look for the signs pointing to their ‘yet to be seen’ home. It will not disappoint.
The Perch & Nest story is one that begins over a decade ago as Thomas E. Elsner Custom Carpentry. Although small dwellings and conversions were always part of their business, Thomas and Johanna Elsner became smitten with tiny homes in recent years infusing smart design and reclaimed materials into their custom carpentry.
In 2014 they served as sponsor, host, and mentor for the popular Tiny House Expedition’s build and knew immediately they wanted to build more tiny homes. Through construction they also learned more about simpler living and subsequently changed a number of aspects of their family life. Building tiny homes and cottages allows the Elsners to provide the dedication and craftsmanship they have long prided themselves on, in a more refined venue.
Perch & Nest is also the exclusive build partner for the Ms. Gypsy Soul tiny house design by Jewel Pearson, one of the festival’s featured speakers.
