Get to know us!
Both business and life partners, Teresa Baker & Shaina Thompson are the founders of LATCH Collective. We started LATCH Collective in July of 2016 to meet the needs of novice do-it-yourself tiny house builders, which included us! Our tool belt is equipped with skills and knowledge in areas such as management, zoning, policy, community development, carpentry, compassion, and collaboration. Passionate tiny house advocates and DIYers, we live every day building a strong Community of Learners and Network of Professionals while building our own tiny home.
Community of Learners
We are a diverse collective of over 40 Learners coming from all age ranges, professions, and parts of this world. Interests range from affordable housing advocacy to custom furniture design to becoming the next big tiny house building company, but generally everyone is interested in sharing our skills and learning more about the tiny house movement, and how to design, build and locate a tiny house.
You can get to know us through social media, or at one of our events, but the best way to get to know us is by joining the community !
