It’s no secret I love to share all the interesting things happening in Mississippi County, Arkansas. That’s where I grew up and where my Momma still farms. Now we can add Little Custom Homes, LLC to the coolness.
How cute are these? The only thing missing is a puppy on each porch.
Am I right?
I’ve not officially toured these homes, but I’ve driven by them, stalked them from afar, and memorized the photos on the website. And while I’m not (yet) a tiny house dweller, these Little Custom Homes (company owned by Bill Denton) make me believe I could pare down my stuff to those can’t-live-without
books belongings. So often, I feel stifled by stuff. Don’t you?
There’s certainly a minimalist movement at work in our cluttered lives. A less is more attitude. I work toward that daily in my home and in the words I write. Eliminating the muddle and surrounding myself with what’s important to me. That’s long been my recipe for simplifying things. It helps me think more clearly, too.
My Favorite Things about these particular Little Custom Homes:
- I’m a big fan of the craftsman construction style;
- Porches! Front and Back or Wrap-Around;
- These homes are completely customizable;
- Local owner / builder / employees.
This row of Little Custom Homes sits perched together off the interstate near Bassett. Homes can be built and delivered to your lot within one hundred miles of Wilson.
These homes fit the landscape. They remind me of the sharecropper homes back in the day, like Johnny Cash’s home place (in a positive way, not in a back-breaking, cotton-chopping way). Today, small represents freedom. Less debt. The ability to live life without being tied to gigantic home obligations.
Little Custom Homes can be rented or purchased on a rent-to-own plan. I understand there’s a long wait list, so if you’re interested, better queue up. Traditional mortgage financing is available to qualified purchasers.
Homes range from around 512 to 950 square feet and approximately $105 psf air-conditioned space. Construction design include exposed beams and shiplap walls. If you keep up with everyone’s favorite Fixer Upper, you know shiplap is the new sliced bread.
According to the buzz, a Little Custom Homes development is coming soon to Keiser, on the location of the school grounds. This is the sort of thing that can certainly boost a small town. (And for those of you following along, Keiser was once known as Savage Crossing.)
