THE TJH DESIGN ETHOS Homes for a modern lifestyle
Designed by top architects, our home plans are beloved for how large they live. From bonus lofts and work-from-home spaces to optimal window placement and clever storage solutions, we maximize every inch of a home so that it not only looks great but also lives right.
Attractive exteriorsOur homes’ attractive exteriors have been designed to enhance the character of the neighborhood and set the tone for your home’s design. Options range from modern minimalist to timeless traditional, and everything in between.
Elevated featuresThere’s nothing builder-grade about a TJH home. Our scale enables us to source high-end features and custom-quality finishes from the most trusted brands in home design for significantly less than traditional single-lot builders.
Designer interiorsOur interiors include designer-approved materials and finishes for your entire home. For pre-construction homebuyers, they are the ideal starting point from which to make optional upgrades.
Our award-winning team of architects and designers behind our collection of cottage-style homes designed smart plans that live large on a smaller footprint. From double-height living rooms to optimal window placement, we considered every detail to maximize livability and create a sense of openness.
With elevated amenities and finishes, our small-footprint homes still make room for a high-end living experience. You’ll find full-size kitchens with quartz countertops and large pantries, center islands with bar seating and discreet, under-counter microwaves, private outdoor space, smart home controls, and much more. (Features vary per plan).
By strategically utilizing every inch of space, our cottage-style homes offer ample storage to support a modern lifestyle, including tall kitchen cabinetry that takes advantage of the available vertical space, double-door pantries, under-stair closets, and walk-in closets, per plan.
Many of our cottage-style homes are built in small clusters, creating pocket neighborhoods. Connected by common walkways and green spaces, these homes promote greater community, support, and security while bringing you closer to Seattle’s coolest areas.

What does the HOA in the cottage communities cover?
