Stratford company caters exclusively to 'tiny house' craze

STRATFORD -

A Stratford company is helping customers all over the northeast 'go tiny,' whether it's for financial freedom or just shrinking their carbon footprint.

Husband and wife team Ken and Tori Pond were in the contracting business when the downsizing craze first started. Their company, Craft & Sprout, is currently working on a tiny home that has a fully functioning bathroom with hot water, full kitchen amenities and the comforts one would expect from a modern home. The 300-square foot home is on a set of wheels and ready to head to the Catskills next week.

"It really puts things in perspective for a lot of people of what's important to them," says Tori Pond.

The Ponds say they design their houses to the customers' specifications. The homes are all on four wheels for the convenience of a mobile home, with the look of a house.

"It really gives you that kind of home base, warm and fuzzy feeling that everybody really wants when they walk into their home," says Tori Pond.

Craft & Sprout is having an open house Saturday for anyone interested in checking out some of its 'tiny' creations.
