Testimonials

Real thoughts from real people, word for word. 

“Steve is incredibly easy to work with; he listens carefully to what you want, then wises you up on what won’t work and tells you a slightly better way to do it. During the design phase he was able to talk us through the building codes and worked very quickly and thoroughly. His crew is also extremely skilled.

Steve was able to keep us within our budget by suggesting less expensive materials where applicable and finding used materials. The finished product is the bell of the neighborhood – there are plenty of windows to the north, exactly what an artist needs. I’m very pleased in every respect with working with him and the finished product.”

“Stephen Marshall, the proprietor of The Little House on the Trailer, was for many years a cabinet maker with an exceptionally good aesthetic sense and you can see that refined and practical sensibility in every Little House he builds. He is also a thoughtful and thorough person who has done a good deal of research regarding the zoning laws. Lastly, he is fair-minded and reasonable, in my opinion regarding the value you’ll get for the price. Definitely a person you’d want to do business with.”

“I highly recommend a visit to the display lot of LHOTT, located near the Petaluma outlets mall. If you have ever envisioned building a small house/studio with the dimensions legally allowed in your town, but hesitate to pursue it beyond the ‘thinking about it stage’ … you will find several different layouts and sizes there to ‘try on.’ I have … found the owner and staff to be very helpful, non pushy, and never engaging in the expected ‘salespersons’ push.’ If you’re thinking about it…GO, Take a LOOK!”

“The folks at LHOTT are great … every time I stop by they are very helpful and their craftsmanship appears to be excellent. Finally, someone is making tiny houses we can all afford and use. I recommend their art studios to my real estate clients whenever we are looking at a house that doesn’t have a studio…they’re the perfect solution.”

“There was not one model from a tiny room of your own to the largest homes and everything between that I did not absolutely love.”
