Who We Are?
Welcome! We are Ed and Donna Owen, owners of WNC Tiny Homes. For many years you could find us renovating homes in the Western North Carolina region and although you can still find us here in Waynesville, NC, we aren’t renovating homes anymore. We create and build tiny homes instead! I, Donna, personally gained an immense amount of experience about the housing market from being a real estate investor for over a decade but now I am, in a way, “downsizing.”
We love to serve the people of Macon, Swain, Haywood and the surrounding counties with our creative gifts. Ed has been building things since he could crawl and now, in his fifties, is quite the expert craftsman. I have flipped over 100 houses and am the creative one out of the two of us. I love to express the creative side of my personality and come up with the design of the tiny houses. My true creativity can shine when a purchaser tells me an idea of what they would like from the tiny home. I take their idea and create systems and designs so that it is exactly the constructive living space that they wanted.
We are passionate about this area of the world and can see a housing crisis arising. Did you know that over 15 million people visit Asheville every year? Between the Appalachian trail, the Great Smoky Mountains and Blue Ridge Parkway, there are not enough hotels and housing for the visitors or those who choose to stay permanently. That is why we are building tiny homes and tiny home communities all around Western North Carolina.
Our specialty is working with locals who would like to start making extra income through Airbnb or HomeAway. As Superhosts ourselves, we know how to create a great experience for guests and to create a second income through renting out our own property. We are lucky to be able to have the knowledge of craftsmanship, the experience with renting and to live in an increasingly growing market. We understand that we are fortunate to have this opportunity and want to share it with you.
When we are not building tiny homes, we are usually working in another one of our businesses. We have a green cleaning business that caters to Airbnb Superhosts and provide concierge needs for second-home residents.
