About isabelle nagel-brice
Isabelle built her own tiny house and lived tiny full time for nearly 6 years. Throughout her build, she focused on environmentally conscious materials stemming from her history with natural building and ultimately became inspired by Passivhaus designs, specifically. As a result, she founded A Tiny Good Thing to offer healthy tiny house building kits and hourly consulting to guide folks through the various stages of their builds. She has worked with builders all over the country to build high-performance tiny houses with quality materials that have less of a carbon footprint, don’t off-gas toxic chemicals, and therefore confront climate change through the build environment. Isabelle is a certified Passivhaus tradesperson and a certified sustainable homes professional. Isabelle personally committed to having less of a negative environmental impact and wants to encourage others to do the same in building and life.
