In today's Passive Wealth Show  Thursday, May 6th at 12:30 PM Eastern, Bill & Wendy are joined by Jesse Russell, Builder, Founder and, Hiatus Homes CEO to discuss the small living movement, sustainable design, and zero energy ready tiny homes!


Jesse grew up in Bend, OR and after spending some time working in the TV industry in Los Angeles and New York, he decided to sell most of his possessions, return to Bend, and focus on building a tiny house. 


Originally called Tongue and Groove Tiny Homes, Hiatus Homes was born in 2015 when Jesse built the first “Hiatus” as a tiny home on wheels in a friend’s backyard. 


After participating in the Bend Design Conference, they had the dream to build an innovative community focused on small home design.


Small and efficient home living is a fast-growing trend in the US and living in a smaller home is one of the best ways to impact the climate positively and fight climate change. 


Their homes are 40 – 50% more efficient than the average American house. Their process allows them to create zero-energy homes for a reasonable cost. Studio and Two Bedroom designs are available in Bend, Oregon. Hiatus Homes plan to expand throughout the Pacific Northwest and the nation.


Jesse Russell is a known expert and frequently provides information, commentary, and speaking services in the field of real estate development and the construction of commercial, residential, and hotel property. 


Some of his speaking engagements have included the Go Clean Energy Conference, Redmond Proficiency Academy class, Oregon Tiny House Symposium, and American Institute of Certified Planners.
