    tiny house amish wisconsin

    I love this idea. We live in wisconsin sherwood area out in country. We are of knowledge of a large amish settlement in cashton area. Who makes tiny homes from that area. And could they be delivered to our area near high cliff state park. Would love a 2 holer outhouse not a working on though. Just need safe animal free storage for trash cans. I love the outhouse concept. Its nearly 3 hours to cashton wisconsin for us. We do business with amish family there. Bent hickory furniture and special made quilts. If we could get tiny house and a 2 holer outhouse that would be great for us. Any info would be of great help to us.

      Did you know?

      Hi Linda, We live in Neenah so we’re neighbors! Have you ever been to the Amish settlement in Kingston/Dalton south of Princeton? It’s way closer than Cashton. We have several friends there and I’d have to ask if there was a builder in the area that could help you.

        tiny homes wis

        Ive not heard of this amish area is this green lake county. Any info on amish builder would be great to know. We have a small amish here st. Anne area but not awate of builder. I know there are a few by cashton i called english lady who lives by family we visit in cashton. We are going for a visit to take fabric for wuilts for next years fund raiser saving laws rescue in appleton. So anna will take us for a tour to show us who does building over in cashton. This family we have known for many years. We do trades wuilts pot holders place mats for door county cherrys. I also get them sewing needs. Have taken daughters shopping as well. They love going for rides in car with us. They enjoy playing with my smart phone to look up stuff online and at pics ive taken. I get the best eggs ive ever eatten from them each visit. Hubby has been in barn milking with the dad. Its like we are family dont seem to matter were english. I speak some german mom enjoys this. Id haveto say this amish family is more like family to us than some of our own family. Take em shopping at ft. Mccoy they love this alot. Great family. But if you do know of a builder on our side of state post it on site id be happy for the info. Ive been told that there is a few builders who would even build a big house for us as well from cashton area. Wed put them up by us while they build. Takes time and must get building inspector to agree to this. Just need plumber electrician basement dug they can do the rest. Hubby says tiny house to small wed need at least 6 to 8 put together. Ive heard its been done. Amish builders go out of there to please a customer. English builders not so much. And the work doesnt come close to amish homes. Have you been in any amish built homes. Floors are just beautiful. Kitchens are very large roomy. With pantry attached. Ive got plans in my head. Cant find local builder to do what i want. Pocket doors extra deep garage with ramp going into basement
        Kitchen closed off from animals in house. Walk in closets huge bathrooms with special walk in tubs. And no carpet. But builder must get trailer off basement off to side build new one right where trailer is. Im sure the right amish builder can do the job. Have you seen them move a house we have with team of work horses. Any info on builders please post for me. Thanks so much

    I was wondering what Amish sect they represent. Often you do not see Amish men with moustaches. Seems like a nice quiet area they are in

      They belong to the “Michigan Churches”, an Amish affiliation that in many aspects is similar to the New Order Amish.

      Smyrna, by the way, was not founded as an Amish community but as one of the Christian Communities of Elmo Stoll (1944-1998).

      After the early death of Elmo Stoll the Christian Communities as a group disbanded and some of these communities joined other affiliations. The Smyrna community then joined the Michigan Churches of the Old Order Amish.

    At this point in life (mid- 60’s, more physical impairment every year, arthritis, hand palsy due to spinal injuries, etc.), a tiny home sounds wonderful. Of course, my husband would have to live in his OWN tiny home (his “man cave”) 🙂 I would love just enough room to “entertain” a handful of family or friends. I look forward to retirement in a year or two, with time to FINALLY read all those books I’ve had to put on my “to read” list! I’m sure my cat would be OK with it, too!

    I would like a “regular” bathroom, though I could certainly make use of an “outhouse” when I’m out gardening!

    I read the other article (linked) and it mentioned the Amish having beards but NO moustache. I wonder when that actually changed and why. Does anyone know? I always find Amish “reasoning” of interest in such matters!
