The New Homemakers

We help people-especially women-create their ideal homes to fit their lifestyle goals.


As two women who figured out how to live affordably and creatively in one of the nation s most expensive cities, we are redefining what it means to be a homemaker. We've renovated multiple properties, built a tiny house community, and created rental units and shared living spaces in our homes. We ve started businesses from our hobbies, worked as career counselors and mentors, and this fall we will be traveling across the country to share our knowledge and tools with you.




We're coming to you in our self-built, converted Ram Promaster City camper van! Delivering workshops across the Midwest and Southeast September 6-October 4, 2019, we aim to teach 500 women in person! Please visit our main website for tour details:



'The best money I've spent on my house'

'Workshop was extremely informative and well organized'

'I now know I can do this. Thanks for helping build my self-confidence'

'I feel more confident expressing expectations and feel like I will save a ton of money'


The New Homemakers is a collaboration between Erin Helland of Hard Hat Diplomat and Lee Pera of Kotierra.



Did you know that single women are buying homes at two times the rate of single men even though we have 37% less purchase power? Join us at our Home Renovation for Women workshop coming to you this fall. Learn how to plan for your upcoming home improvements, understand the ROI of your investment, and better know how to engage contractors. Originally designed by women, for women, all are welcome!
