Designer, Builder, Educator, Consultant
Thom Stanton, is a long-time advocate of “legitimizing and legalizing” movable tiny houses as code compliant dwellings and permissible full-time residences.
A small space visionary, 11th generation builder, and tiny house how-to educator, Thom and his wife Midge live on the road as “full-timers” helping DIY builders plan and prepare to "go tiny." To help further formalize the tiny house industry and foster its intentional growth, the Stantons support DIY and professional tiny house construction companies with tiny home planning and consulting services. They also work with state housing and community development administrators, municipal zoning and building officials, and local advocacy and planning groups to help expand access to affordable housing through tiny houses and tiny house communities.
Thom brings a humorous, energetic, and enabling open-source approach to his speaking engagements, builder coaching sessions, and 1-on-1 planning consultations, working hard to provide insightful how-to information that enables practical can-do decision-making.
Thom and Midge's company, Go Tiny, offers Purpose-Built Tiny House Trailers, Finish-Ready Tiny House Shells, and a unique DIY Assist program to help you "future proof" your tiny house for use as your Permanent Residence, Accessory Dwelling Unit, or Portable Dwelling Unit.
Thom is eager to share his knowledge, experience, and options to help you Go Tiny!

I don't want to buy my own truck to haul my TH infrequently. Are there companies that can move it for me?
I am struggling to find any information on how to build a tiny home myself and get it certified. I love the idea of building myself because it will be exactly what I want and I will be in control of the budget. It seems like tiny houses began as a way to own a home outright, but now its this huge money maker for builders who charge crazy amounts.
