Building for your Future Today
Say hello to the newest community of tiny homes in Bartlesville, OK. Located one block North of Adams Blvd. and East of Virginia, these cottages are a perfect blend of affordability, comfort and space.
The community is a peaceful place for individuals and families to plant their roots in their own community on the Westside.
These homes are helping to redefine what affordable housing looks like for low income families residing in Washington County.
Each of these units will catch your attention with eye popping colors on the outside and a stylish and space efficient design on the inside.
All homes are highly energy efficient and come in either a 2 or 3 bedroom layout.
This is the start of not just building affordable housing but of building a community of people and families looking for a safe and comfortable environment to live.

Mr. Parker not only oversees construction aspects of Nehemiah but has brought to the community the Nehemiah House. The Nehemiah House’s vision is to treat all people with respect and dignity and through our programs provide the tools needed for independent Christian living in order to assist in making life better with long-term results for men and women and their families. The Mission at Nehemiah House is to provide the ex-offenders a safe transitional housing alternative and to equip the participants to be integrated into the Church, the workplace, and society through biblical discipleship while preventing relapses into addictions and criminal behaviors.
