About Anchored Tiny Homes
Anchored Tiny Homes is a tiny home builder that focuses primarily on accessory dwelling units (ADUs). Founded in 2019 by Colton and Austin Paulhus, the company is well on its way to becoming the nationwide name for tiny homes, simultaneously working to solve the housing crisis and create lucrative business opportunities for others looking to do the same. Through franchising, Anchored Tiny Homes is now preparing to establish itself in high-demand markets nationwide, offering a model that supports better housing availability, family unification and financial freedom in the communities it serves.
Why Anchored Tiny Homes? Why Now?
In the midst of a national housing crisis, Anchored Tiny Homes is well-positioned to take off, quickly becoming a national leader in the ADU construction space. In the first quarter of 2023, homes nationwide sold for an average of $436,800, and this number only climbs in higher-demand markets and for newer homes.
Because of the challenging housing market, many families find themselves trying to choose between some sort of multi-generational living model or the purchase of a nearly-million-dollar home — something that is not attainable for a large portion of Americans.
Anchored Tiny Homes offers a business model that further differentiates itself from other tiny home builders. By focusing on ADUs and offering custom, stick-built homes, Anchored Tiny Homes is able to cater more specifically to homeowners looking to make an addition to the property that is still in line with the aesthetic of the primary residence and customizable to the needs of the prospective residents.
What Sets Anchored Tiny Homes Apart?
Not only is Anchored Tiny Homes primed to explode in markets nationwide, having tapped into the incredible demand that exists for custom ADU construction, it also presents a unique franchise offering, bringing marketing, design and operational expertise to the relationship.
Even after franchisees are trained and operating, the corporate team is heavily involved. An investment with Anchored Tiny Homes allows the franchisee access to support in selling tiny homes, securing general contractors for the build-out and managing the build-out process in each unique market. In addition to all of this, the Anchored Tiny Homes corporate team manages marking and appointment setting entirely, meaning local owners can focus their energy on making the sales and overseeing the delivery process.
Why Tiny Homes?
Tiny homes, and more specifically, ADUs, are taking over the nation. Inventory issues continue to plague the market, and CNN reports that the U.S. housing market is short by over six million homes.
ADUs present an opportunity for both families looking to reunite on a single property, filling the need for elder and memory care communities and less-established professionals who are not yet able to purchase a home independently, and investors looking to establish an additional revenue stream on an existing property.
In addition to the sheer demand that exists, the product alone lends itself to facilitating a successful business. At the price point of a tiny home, business owners do not have to sell thousands of units to begin to secure a return on their investment. Rather than quantity, they focus on the quality of each sale and build-out, building a strong name for Anchored Tiny Homes in their communities.
Anchored Tiny Homes is excited to work with passionate entrepreneurs who truly care about solving the housing crisis and providing Americans with a pathway to financial freedom.
Because the franchisor offers guidelines for business owners to connect with local architects and general contractors and brings decades of sales and marketing expertise, franchisees do not necessarily need to have a background in tiny home development. Rather, they should bring a passion for business ownership, grit to grow and commitment to solving the national housing crisis.
Why Franchise Owners Love the Brand
The Paulhus’ first tiny home came to be when Colton made a listing on Facebook Marketplace. It later sold for over $80,000. Because the corporate leadership team has built the business from the ground up, it brings the firsthand experience necessary to support franchisees in navigating their own growth and potential challenges.
With the support of the Anchored Tiny Homes corporate team, franchisees are establishing themselves in major metros and becoming the first movers in each area.
As more states begin to pass legislation approving ADUs on a broader scale, Anchored Tiny Homes brings franchisees in on the ground floor of a major, national movement.
