Who We Are

Sculptorhouse Mission Statement

The mission of Sculptorhouse LLC is to re-imagine the way we create housing. 

We believe that your house should be beautifully proportioned and visually appealing from inside and outside.

We believe that your house should create as little damage to the environment as possible. It should use as little energy as possible for its heating and cooling; it should create as little construction waste as possible during its construction; it should last for hundreds of years so that it does not need to be replaced with another building that will use more resources.

We believe that your house should be a place of deep shelter: it should feel both cozy and protective but also spacious and airy. It should be able to withstand very high winds and severe earthquakes.

We believe that people should not be forced to indenture themselves to a lending institution for 15 to 30 years in order to house themselves.

We are offering a high-quality, beautifully designed home for a price so affordable that many people will be able buy one without taking out a mortgage. Our houses are designed by a sculptor. By creating them in the same way a sculptor creates art multiples, we are able to significantly reduce the per-unit cost. The result is a house of high quality and high visual appeal but at a very affordable cost.

We believe that the need for a safe, secure, and sheltering home is at the very core of the human experience. Beyond mere walls and roof we need a sanctuary, a place to dream, to gather and to be a family. Too many people around the world are denied this necessity.

Is it possible to change that? We believe it is.

History

Sculptorhouse Founder Craig Pleasants has spent 35 years as an artist exploring ideas of housing, homelessness, and vernacular architecture. His work has been featured widely in exhibits across the U.S. and Europe since 1980.

In 1981, he created the Octagonal Living Unit, a hybrid of sculpture and architecture that articulated the values of sustainable housing and the tiny house movement decades before they rose into public consciousness. That first house is the inspiration for our prefab designs today.

Craig founded Sculptorhouse in 2011 to explore the intersection of art and architecture as a way of creating dwellings that are beautiful, resilient, and affordable. To see more of Craig’s work, visit his online portfolio here.

Testimonials

If you value distinct and open space then the Sculptorhouse OLU is for you. The space is very open and is great for having people visit. The lighting and overall feel is incredible. The panels are AMAZING - fortress and well insulated.

The experience has been great. We truly appreciated having the flexibility to make some customizations during the process. The build process went smooth - super easy because it came as a kit.
