One of the biggest appeals of the tiny house lifestyle is the ability to build your own structure with your own two hands.

But what if the idea and process of home construction frightens you so much, it actually discourages you from engaging in your desire to live a simple tiny house life?

Easy! Have one of the many companies that construct tiny homes, lend you a helping hand.

Creative Cottages, LLC is one of those amazing businesses. Ran by R. McAllister “Mac” Lloyd, a veteran builder and designer, the company focuses on stylish and modern tiny houses that they build in a warehouse in Freeport, Maine and then assembles on site. This style of constructing traditional stick building and panelization offers low impact to environment where the structure is being built, but the perks don’t end there.

Their latest model, the Oceanside Retreat is a gorgeous creation. It looks traditional on the outside and the inside? Elegant just begins to describe it…
