About Us

MJ copy.jpg
Hello! We are a husband-wife design/build team who creates livable (and lovable) spaces filled with consideration and care. We combine our passion for re-purposed materials with a dash of ingenuity and intuition.
Our work has appeared on: HGTV, FYI Network's Tiny House Nation, Food & Wine Magazine, Sunset Magazine, CNN, Glamour Magazine, UK's the Sun, Bob Vila, and Refinery 29.
We come from varied backgrounds. Michael is a musician and has toured extensively and recorded with artists such as: Pink Martini, 3 Leg Torso, and David Grisman from the Grateful Dead. Jenna's background is in the tech industry, running business operations for tech companies large and small. She is now training to be a therapist focusing on women of color and other marginalized populations.
We consider it a singular treat that we can share these spaces with you.

Our properties:  


- The Hi Desert Ranch: A 10-acre micro-resort experience located in Joshua Tree, California. Perfect for families or friend groups. Guests rave about the "low key VIP" vibes. 

The Home Sweet Homesteader: A re-imagined Joshua Tree homesteader cabin, featured on TV show "Tiny House Nation".

The Rustic Modern Tiny House: A magical hand-built tiny house in Portland Oregon. Near and dear to our hearts. Our first project!
