Smaller than Zak’s Homes and Cottages, Simple Homes are for the minimalist at heart or the budget-conscious builder. They’re built like tiny homes but, unlike tiny homes, Zak’s Simple Homes are code compliant and meet zoning requirements for most cottage and acreage properties.


IS A SIMPLE HOME right for you?

If you’ve always wanted an affordable home, or a home away from home, or if you’re a minimalist who just likes to keep things simple, then a Zak’s Simple Home might be just what you’ve been looking for. Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do I want a getaway cabin, retreat or starter home that is considerably more affordable than a typical cottage or house?
  • Have I always wanted to live a more minimalist lifestyle or leave a smaller environmental footprint?
  • Do I have a small lakeside or acreage lot that won’t accommodate a standard-sized building?
  • Do I want a simple shelter, starter home or home away from home, whether it’s for hunting, for my farm or for seasonal workers?
  • Do I want to lower my debt or live mortgage free?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then a Zak’s Simple Home might be just what you need.
