*How do Build Deposits work?
$1,000 Build Date Deposits are 90% refundable up to 45 days from the start of your project.

Upon reviewing your project schedule and estimate, you may cancel and be refunded any balance not used in hourly preparation for your project.

Your project will be confirmed 45 days out from the start and you will be reminded of your opportunity to request a 90% refund.

The start date of your project will mark the initiation of a design, scheduling and budget process. Your construction start date and completion date will vary somewhat.

Most standard builds will take between 2 and 4 months to complete.

Permitted residential structures will vary and are likely to take between 6 months and 18 months.

Structures on wheels will be built to NOAH (National Organization of Alternative Housing) and receive NOAH inspection to help ensure your ability to insure the structure.

We are not responsible for your ability to insure a Tiny House on Wheels, but can refer you to agencies.
