Cornerstone Design/Build is now Cornerstone Tiny Homes. Cornerstone uses the same licensed professionals to build their tiny homes which they used to build their previous homes and remodels. By using licensed experts, they feel they can build their tiny homes to the highest standards that offer high levels of safety and quality, as well as style.
The Cornerstone team has built in Virginia, Illinois, Florida and in the Bahamas. In the Bahamas, Cornerstone built 3 homes on a 13 acre island that took a direct hit by Hurricane Sandy as a category 3 storm – all sustaining very minimal siding damage. They’ve taken that same expertise and applied it to a smaller version…..the tiny home. Using their knowledge of new products in the industry, combined with their experience of old world craftsmanship, Cornerstone strives to build quality into everything they produce.
Brett Hiltbrand, CEO, is a Florida state licensed building contractor and has over 30 years of building experience in the Midwest, Florida and the Bahamas. He has built hundreds of homes ranging from Habitat For Humanity homes to 10,000 plus square foot homes in Florida and the Bahamas. Three of his homes on a 13 acre island in Eleuthera withstood a direct hit from Hurricane Sandy in 2012; a category three storm.
As a wall panel and stair manufacturer Brett was asked twice to participate in ABC’s Extreme Home Makeover to design components and supervise crews working around the clock to help families in their time of need. Brett and his wife Kim left the traditional building industry to start Cornerstone Tiny Homes in 2014 and are currently building tiny homes exclusively.
“Once you build a 6000 square foot home in 96 hours you realize that anything can be accomplished with proper planning and positive attitudes.”
Kim Hiltbrand, COO, is a down to earth designer, specializing in guiding clients through material and equipment selections for their homes. She’s worked with hundreds of new home buyers to create their new living environments.
Through a process known as programming, Kim will work with you to determine exactly what you need. She will develop a plan, present you with options, and guide you through the process of designing your new tiny home. Kim’s goal is to enhance your unique lifestyle and to provide you with quality products for your new home, all while maintaining your budget.
Together Kim and Brett, and the rest of the team of professionals at Cornerstone, have a long history of “out of the box” thinking and careful execution. They all have created a long list of gorgeous projects and happy customers. From helping you build your own tiny home from scratch, to designing the luxury tiny home of the future, Cornerstone Tiny Homes should be the company you call to make your tiny home dream a reality.
