We created Hatchback to increase housing options in Seattle while complementing the character of the neighborhoods we love. By generating the opportunity for supplemental income, we stabilize homeowners and create options for their future, which helps families and communities stay connected. We encourage and empower every owner to participate in the housing economy - using their backyard to positively shape equitable growth. Our work is driven by a team of committed designers, analysts, contractors, and advisors who share our belief in backyard cottages as an innovative housing solution.
Have lasting positive social impact with how we run our business and relate to our communities.
Humbly listen, observe, and learn from our customers, the data, our skeptics, and our collaborators.
Create functional, beautiful designs that challenge the status quo and improve how we relate to the world.
Shannon is the CEO of Hatchback. He cooks up ideas crazy enough they just might work.
