Build starting April 2022.



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.


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.



A popular Simple Home, this cottage is 551 square feet of living space with an 18′ x 10′ storage loft.
