FIRST WE would like TO MEET WITH YOU AT OUR SHOP
WHERE YOU CAN STEP INSIDE of A TINY HOUSE
AND SEE IF it’s going to work FOR YOU
IF it’s a yes and A TINY HOUSE IS FOR YOU,
then let’s by all means move forward in the process
The next thing we need to think about in the process is where are you going to put your tiny house? Contrary to a lot of the stories you hear about, many towns and cities will allow your tiny house as long as it is built to code. (check out code info). If you really want to live tiny, it can and will happen if you want it bad enough.
This next step usually one of the most difficult.
Determining what your real honest budget is?
Like where to put your tiny house, if you want to live tiny bad enough, you will find the money. We have links to financing solutions and your own resourcefulness goes a long way toward success. Most of our customers start out with a trailer or a shell and build from there. We can discuss this and find what you are comfortable with and make sure you are successful. In order to move forward we need a real budget so we can determine the feasibility and how realistic your tiny house build would be. It’s a good idea to have a real feel for your budget when we meet at our shop.
Our team of building professionals bring passion, creativity, hand craftsmanship and ultra efficiency to all of our builds.
Next is developing a plan…
Your notes and sketches, etc.
It’s a good idea to bring your notes, sketches and any plans you may have to our first meeting. That way we can get a feel for what you are thinking and how we can best make it work on your budget. We have access to many size trailers and plans so getting a rough idea of the style and size will make going forward much easier.
Sitting down with a designer and putting it all together…
We have professional designers who will meet with you to draw plans that meet your needs and to the level of complexity you wish. They start at about $900 for real plans that will make your tiny house build smooth. We will prepare a quote for your build laying out the style, size, what is included etc. Once we are all in agreement we will prepare and sign a contract reflecting the terms and conditions of your tiny house build.
Ordering the trailer, windows and materials needed to start your build
Now that we have a contract with the terms of what we are building all laid out in writing, we need to order the trailer, all of the windows and door(s) and other materials that take 3-4 weeks for delivery. We will require an initial deposit for these costs which are all controlled by the contract for the benefit of both you the buyer and us the builder.
Let’s get building right now!
serving folks in Maine and all over New England, who want to live close to the earth, save energy and live the simple life.
Maine’s First Tiny House Village and Agri-hood Community
We are currently searching for the right property to create a Tiny House Village in Maine. We are looking where tourism is a major economic driver. Investors will be purchasing tiny houses for daily rentals in a hotel format being rented and managed for them. We will also be renting lots for traveling tiny house adventurers. We have seen a need for the local folks who would love to live in an Agri-hood community. For more information on the investment opportunities available within the Tiny House sector click here….
