Company overview

Type Five is a housing company that builds and designs exceptional homes. We simplify the difficult parts of homebuilding so we can focus on what matters most: seamless process, thoughtful design, and quality craftsmanship.

We’re building a home building operating system that combines our modular design system with software to build homes faster and more economically. We believe that standardizing how every home is designed and built opens the door for more people to have living spaces that meet their unique needs.

We are at the beginning of our journey, but have raised $2.3 million from industry-leading investors and operators. We look forward to growing our small but mighty team with creative, entrepreneurial, mission-driven, and relentlessly motivated people who can help us build home for the next generation of owners.
