“My decision to build a Tiny house was based on a ton of research and lots of comparisons between builders. In the end, I am delighted that I chose Oregon Cottage Company as my builder.
Throughout the planning and building processes, Todd was very generous with his time and spent every minute I needed to explore the options, discuss outcomes, and to answer all my questions. At the time, I was living out of state so I was not able to see the progress first-hand. It was so helpful to get those regular updates and photos via email!
I have been living full-time in my house for almost two months now, and couldn’t be happier! I had every confidence in Todd all along, but it wasn’t until I was actually living in the finished product that I could appreciate the quality of the work. Visitors consistently remark about how well-built it is, and are always amazed at the obvious attention to detail that went into it.
Todd is an architect and a hands-on craftsman. He loves what he does, and it shows! He is an honest business person and values his relationships with his clients. If you are looking for the best, look no further!”

“I just received my brand new Ynez Cottage & I love it! I have already had many visitors — including people who just knock on the door asking to see inside. A family even a family followed it in from the expressway (on the day it was delivered). Everyone has commented on the craftsmanship and design.
Todd Miller has been wonderful to work with. He was able to turn my rough sketches into my dream cottage. The progress was documented with pictures, and he kept in touch with phone calls and emails. He was always available to give me feedback and to discuss any concerns I had. He even came in under budget! I am his number one fan, as you will be too.
Thank you Todd,
I love my beautiful new Ynez Cottage.”

“I drove to Cottage Grove, Oregon to meet Todd Miller and tour his model home. Wow! It’s absolutely beautiful. The quality of construction is the best of the best. It’s structurally engineered to withstand just about any disaster thrown at it. I have never seen anyone think the structural aspect of the home through so thoroughly.
Todd is so passionate about his work. He talked and shared for almost four hours. As an architect, he’s an absolute wealth of knowledge, yet his knowledge is practical with actual hands-on experience in all areas of construction. He was able to think through all the various ways of doing things, sharing the pros and cons of each.
He also has the structural expertise and connections with the various agencies that can help drive this small home movement. I was impressed with his ability to always steer the conversation to the positive, looking at possibilities instead of hurdles. Thank you for introducing him…he would be a good one to feature a lot more!”

“When I started researching tiny houses several years ago, I found a blog photo of the Ynez and tracked down the Oregon Cottage Company. Todd worked closely with me to accommodate my home office and pet-friendly interior. After living in it through all seasons, I find that it completely fits my aesthetics and active lifestyle.
Can you imagine the benefits of 11 windows in 22 feet of space when you live in cloudy Oregon? The light streams in! Combined with the open design, I have a comfortable bright cottage with all the amenities — that just happens to be on wheels.
Todd designed specifically for my needs and was wonderful to work with. High-quality materials and construction are important to me. I was involved through the entire process and am thrilled with the result. I highly recommend Oregon Cottage Company and Todd Miller. His designs and materials are superior to everything else I’ve see by other builders. I’m always happy to talk honestly about my experience of living in this tiny house.

“Todd blends total competence in the architectural field with a generous, patient, and thoughtful personal nature. I cannot imagine having a more seamless interaction from start to finish.
Having little prior experience with Tiny Houses, I had a lot of questions. Todd patiently walked me through the entire process, answering questions promptly in person, over the phone, and via email.
We explored and agreed upon structural alterations due to my height (6’5”). I greatly appreciated his ability to consider my needs, offer creative solutions, and to communicate complex ideas in “layperson” terms.
Living out of state, Todd kept me updated on the progress via photos and emails. He was also flexible enough to allow some smaller changes after the initial plans were agreed on.
When researching Tiny House builders initially, Todd’s work stood out for its quality of craftsmanship and value. Having happily lived in the house for almost a year now, I feel very fortunate to have chosen Todd’s Ynez. Visitors often mention it’s the best Tiny House they’ve seen. I agree!”
