We are designing + creating affordable, adaptable, alternative housing that is healthy + sustainable for all. AAAH!



Home is a place for living.

It’s much more than an economic investment—much more than a mere shelter for survival. The true value of your home is when you are able to live a quality life and thrive: less cleaning and maintenance, better health, less debt, spending more time outdoors and most importantly, the ability to take time to develop relationships with those wonderful people in your life.


We believe in the triple bottom line — People, Place, Planet. We measure our worth through the health benefits we bring to our community.

Social equity becomes a reality with affordable housing options. We have invested mentally, physically and financially to innovate and bring these healthy solutions to our local communities.

2020 tour dates coming soon!
Past PNW Green Home Tour 2019 + 2018

The NW Green Home Tour invites you to, “Enjoy exploring a wide variety of green homes from new construction to remodels and the experts along the way that can help answer questions about their showcased projects as well as your own future projects.” Get details about the AAAH! tour site here.

Sign up for our newsletter below to find out where and when we are showing our model home. We have participated in public awareness campaigns to inform people of affordable housing alternatives and the tiny houses we build. In 2016 we were selected as Finalists in the Kitsap Bank’s Edg3 Fund Competition. We were also selected as one of just 10 speakers to present at the 2016 Northwest Green Slam! where we spoke about innovative ecobuilding, and our hopes and dreams related to tiny homes and tiny design.

Creating healthy spaces.

We will continue to choose environmentally-responsible materials and people; we are creating spaces where we all value ourselves, connections to each other, sense of place and other species on our planet.


AAAH! is the evolution of Brett Marlo Design Build.

AAAH! is a Team of Designers, Builders and Community Members working for affordable, adaptable, alternative housing. We work to put our vision into action by creating great spaces, developing great products and sharing information about other do-ers who share our values. AAAH! workers have a home at Brett Marlo Design Build in Downtown Gig Harbor, Washington. 

We will innovate in the face of an affordable housing crisis. Our vision is one where our lives are healthy and debt-free with wonderful connections to each other, our community and the great outdoors.

We have an amazing opportunity to show the world that the Pacific Northwest is teeming with forward thinkers.
