" The Original Tortoise Shell "
now retired and living well in
at the Gibbon Conservatory,
Santa Clarita California!
All homes are hand-crafted.
Radically reduce your carbon footprint
Want to leave a smaller footprint, but still have
the comfort and safety of a well-built home
that travels with you? Tortoise shell homes
are cozy (starting at 130 sq feet), mobile
(mounted on a tow trailer), and built tough, like
a larger house.
Don't just talk green, live green
Tortoise shell homes are built green, so your
purchase promotes sustainable,
responsible living.

Whether you use it as a vacation cabin, guest
cottage, artist retreat, field office, or starter
"grow home," your eco-friendly tortoise shell
home blends into the landscape without
sacrificing comfort and security.
