Skyscrapers stretch up into the sky, gleaming in the Abu Dhabi sun. Verdant palm trees sway on street corners. The city streets are packed with people. Hidden in plain sight, however, is an unpleasant aspect of our humanity: wastefulness.
It was the wastefulness that made Brooke stop and think. Brooke, a schoolteacher from Washington State, lived for several months in the city of Abu Dhabi. While the surrounding architecture and lifestyle were exquisite, Brooke could not help but feel that the lavish city was a little too extravagant for her. As her return to America approached, Brooke began to look for ways to live more simply, without sacrificing the quality of her home. She also needed to be able to accommodate her two dogs, something that many apartments refuse to do.
This quest for a simple yet personalized life led Brooke to discover Seattle Tiny Homes. While still living in Abu Dhabi, Brooke was able to arrange several webcam-advising sessions with Sharon Read, the company’s tiny home designer. Taking advantage of the partial build option, Brooke was able to choose which components Seattle Tiny Homes would build and which components she would finish by herself. Seattle Tiny Homes framed Brooke’s house just the way she wanted, with dormers specifically sized to achieve a very open feeling, as well as a doggy door to accommodate her two furry roommates.
When asked what she liked best about Seattle Tiny Homes, Brooke said that it was our ability to communicate and be flexible. At the time of the purchase, Brooke was still living in the Middle East. This made securing property for her home and getting insurance more challenging than it normally would be. We at Seattle Tiny Homes worked hard to make sure all other aspects of Brooke’s transition to a tiny home went smoothly.
“I was able to text Ben (Seattle Tiny Homes’ lead builder) and ask all the questions I wanted,” Brooke explained. “I even got to peek in on the progress a little. I just felt everything was very out in the open.”
Brooke’s satisfaction is something Seattle Tiny Homes strives to achieve with every customer. Our endless options of customization exist for one reason: to make your tiny house dreams come true.
