We Are PAD
Welcome to Portland Alternative Dwellings (PAD), a tiny house education, resource and consulting company based in Portland, Oregon. We are dedicated to making tiny house living a reality for those who have a dream to build tiny. We want to help you design a small, eco-friendly dwelling that is suited to your individual needs and situation.
Dee Williams of PAD is a pioneer of the tiny house movement and has lived in her tiny house on wheels for the past eight years.

Magazine, TIME Magazine, on Good Morning America, NBC Evening News, and National Public Radio.
Dee Williams’ TEDx Talk
“What purchase, what new item, would you want to hold in your arms as you die? What favorite room in your house could accommodate that last breath? Can you imagine how our consumer patterns would change, and how small our houses would shrink, if we asked those questions a little more often?”
