So how much do Tiny Houses cost?
To be perfectly honest it depends. Because I build each of my Tiny Homes per customer choices and wants the price can vary a great deal. I can guarantee you that whatever the cost is will be better than any apples to apples bid from anyone else.
If you haven’t read the about us section “that’s okay” I build each of the Tiny Houses myself. I have had all the employee’s and huge workshops before and gave it all up to stop building 5+ at the same time, I instead build one at a time which means only 4 to 5 tiny homes a year so I can give my customers the quality and craftsmanship they deserve for thousands less.
I do not prioritize customers as to how much they spend either, Customers will place an order and will be place in line with other orders, yes you may have to wait a little longer then the cookie cutter builders but I believe if you are going into this venture to get the very best your money can buy. I always post the approximate time schedule at the bottom right under Updates.

Not trying to scare you off but being honest about cost of a tiny home. I will give you a hard quote and if you add anything after that I will give you a price in writing for the additional work requested so you will never be surprised about cost and absolutely no hidden fees.
There is a $500 designing fee first that will be subtracted from the purchase price and then a 50% deposit to get started and the rest on completion.
I know and understand this will be your home and want to be sure you are going to be as happy in the new home as I will be building it for you. I absolutely love doing what I do and I feel it shows in my work.
