A husband and wife team, Michael and Kirsten are the creators and builders behind Turtle Island Tiny Homes. Bringing 30 years of house construction to the table, Michael is a very skilled and experienced builder.

They call themselves Turtle Island, as it is the name of North America, according to some indigenous groups. more “Turtle Island Tiny Homes – affordable living across North America”
