Wheelhaus Featured in NYT, Chicago Tribune and Baltimore Sun

Wheelhaus was just featured in a great New York Times story about businesses staying nimble during the coronavirus outbreak. Read the full story here.  An excerpt reads:

Wheelhaus, a maker of tiny homes and modular cabins, is trying to do just that. It is now marketing its smallest home — just 250 square feet — as a home office. It can be pulled straight into a backyard on a trailer and has all the amenities of a workplace.

“It’s kind of funny how these things kick you in the butt,” said Jamie Mackay, founder of Wheelhaus. “It’s like, whoa! You wake up and think outside the box. That’s key right now.”

The company manufactures its line of homes in Salt Lake City and normally sells about 180 a year. Demand has slipped, but there has been enough work for Mackay to keep all 80 employees and subcontractors on the job. There have been seven sales of the $88,000 home office since the new marketing began, and Mackay said he expected higher demand for small home offices as real estate trends changed and businesses realized employees could work from home.
