The Build Process
During this time, we cover off any questions about your potential build along with pricing guides for your preferred plan. We also welcome bookings to visit to our factory to see our current houses in various stages of completion.
Formal Quote and Contract Stage
Build Deposit - The first step at this stage is to pay your (non-refundable) build deposit which secures your place in our build queue. Once this has been paid, we schedule in a planning meeting with Shaye to discuss in detail the plan you have chosen. If you would like a custom design, please check out the custom design process.
Planning Meeting - This meeting covers every aspect of your build (including which plan you choose) from cladding choices down to your kitchen knobs! Because of the detail involved at this meeting we allow 2 hours to get everything covered. During this meeting you will be able to get and idea of the cost of your build and adjust it as necessary to fit within your budget along with a cup of tea!
Build Quote and Contract - After your planning meeting with Shaye, we will email you a formal contract to approve. This contract will include a full specification of your new house as well as price based on the discussions in your planning meeting with Shaye.
Acceptance of Quote
If you are happy with everything contained within the quote, all you need to do is sign it off (indicating your acceptance) and return to us.
When the building of your tiny house begins, we will be in contact with you at three different stages inviting you to book an appointment to pop in and see the progress of your house. At these stages, you will be invoiced as per our payment terms.
Stage 1. When the internal linings have been fitted (approximately 4 weeks into the build).
Stage 2. When your build has reached the internal fit-out stage fitted (approximately 8 weeks into the build).
Stage 3. Final inspection (approximately 1 week before your tiny home is delivered).
Yeah! This is the exciting stage when your tiny is about to be delivered. Our team will be in contact with you prior to delivery to provide information so you can organise insurance for the delivery of your tiny home. We will also provide you information that will be helpful when setting up your brand new tiny house onsite.
All plans are customisable as long as the changes are not structural. We have so many different plans available that there is a very good chance that you will be able to find something similar to what you are after for your dream home.
If you prefer to use your own design ideas or make structural changes to our plans, there is a charge as we need to draft the plans to ensure they are doable! The fee of $3,000 plus GST will need to be paid in advance before we proceed to quote your custom build.
