How Our Process Works
(check out code and meet with the code officer for the town you are thinking of moving into first).
As for the building code, it is the same for the whole state of Maine.
THIS NEXT STEP USUALLY ONE OF THE MOST DIFFICULT, DETERMINING WHAT YOUR REAL HONEST BUDGET IS?
Many of our customers start out with a trailer or a shell and build from there. We will discuss this with you and determine how comfortable you are with building. Our goal is to have you be successful in your build.
In order to move forward in this process, we will require you to present us with a real budget to determine the feasibility and how realistic your tiny house build will be. This will be necessary before we meet at our shop to discuss your ideas and plans.
Once we meet and have an idea of your thoughts, we will prepare a quote for what it will cost to build your home. If we do plans and drawings, there will be a fee that will be due before we begin. Once we have drawings and costs for your project, we will draw up a contract and a payment schedule, we will require the down payment and proof of funds or financing before we begin.
We have a team comprised of architects, draftsmen, carpenters, plumbers, electricians, HVAC, Well Drillers, Septic Installers, Earth work people and many more trades people.
