Kalani Iselin 

Founder & Builder

Kalani Iselin is from Maui, HI and has lived in Kula for the past 5 ½ years in a home that he built for himself. He has been in the construction business since he was 17 years old and considers building his art form. In 2013 he attended a social entrepreneurship program in Sweden called The International Youth Initiative Program where he had the opportunity to better work with the ideas of how business and social development can coincide. Island Tiny Homes is his first venture since returning to Maui. Here he finds the opportunity to blend his passion of building with the islands need for quality and affordable housing.

Adam Anderson

Senior Builder

Adam Anderson is originally from New England. He is an experienced builder with 18 years of hands on practice. He takes pride in quality craftsmanship and is excited to be an active member of this project where he gets to take his interest in alternative building to the next level! ​


HR & Accounting

Jenny is the resident office fairy. When she’s not teaching for the school garden or hosting Camp I-Like-You, she’s occasionally found opening mail, updating our website or heckling the builders. She currently lives in a very tiny home built by Kalani, where she creatively uses small spaces to house big projects.
