Inside the Ballard by Seattle Tiny Homes

After years spent as a private contractor drawing floor plans for regular-sized homes, Sharon Read started Seattle Tiny Homes, a company that specializes in eco-friendly high-end miniature homes… It’s comparable to any regular house, just smaller: a kitchen with a microwave, fridge and three-burner stovetop; bathroom with a small tub, sink, compostable toilet and washer and dryer; and two 60-square-feet lofts that can fit queen-sized beds.” – siouxcityjournal.com

I’m Stuck in a Seattle Tiny House and I Can’t Get Out!

Schlage, the lock manufacturing company, working with Young & Laramore, an advertising agency, came up with this brilliant marketing campaign that featured a tiny house at it’s core… a tiny house by Seattle Tiny Homes. Adrienne from Young & Laramore told me:

“We partnered with Seattle Tiny Homes to lock a guy in a house for a week and challenged people in the Seattle area to participate in a 5-day scavenger hunt to find the key and let him out- the winner received $5,000. People were “wowed” by the house and enthusiastic about the Key to Strong Challenge. The campaign was so successful that Schlage is looking into bringing the challenge to other cities. “

It sounds like it turned into a fun event and a win-win for everyone – especially the guy that finally got out of the house and the gal that won the prize! Thanks for sharing Adrienne!

Sharon Read, founder of Seattle Tiny Homes, places dishes in the dining area in the Ballard model home that she created.

The company debuted its first model in February during an environmental trade show and the buzz hasn’t stopped since, Read said.

She recently provided a tour of the first home she designed, a 174-square-foot unit made for small families.”
