We want to be part of your adventure. Remember, we're not just builders, we're engineers, pet lovers, and tiny homeowners who understand the challenges and rewards of going tiny!






You don't put the cart before the horse just like you can't put the build before the design. Even if you're purchasing one of our Mountain Series models and don't anticipate wanting any changes, we still take you through our design process to ensure you know what exactly is included with your home via rendered floor plans, 3D model, and spec sheet. 


Outside of just ensuring your home is beautiful and built to match your dreams, we take into consideration the trailer weight distribution, tongue weight, max GVWR, framing requirements, ventilation, material choice based on climate, safety, the functionality of designed areas for high traffic use, utility clearances, and more. 


The design process requires a non-refundable deposit of $1,500 which is credited to the overall cost of your home when you move onto the build phase. Consider it a deposit on your tiny home build that is used to finalize your design.


At the end of the design process you are provided the following PDF plan deliverable:s


  • Elevations Interior & Exterior

  • Materials Interior & Exterior

  • Window & Door Schedule

  • Floor Plans

  • Electrical Layout Interior & Exterior

  • Plumbing Layout Interior & Exterior

  • Gas Layout Interior & Exterior (if applicable)

  • Off-grid Layout Interior & Exterior (if applicable)

  • We do not provide Framing Plans.

  • We do not provide Detailed Utility Schematics. We provide visual utility layouts only.

Q: Do I have to continue with a build after my design plans? 

A: No, you do not have to continue with a build with us but your $1,500 deposit is non-refundable and will function as your payment for plans.

Military members are eligible for an additional discount.

Q: How do I know how much my home will be before I build? 

A: For our Mountain Series tiny homes, pricing is listed online. For custom changes or custom homes, we provide you a certified quote at the end of your design phase. For budgetary quotes prior to design, see our average 'Tiny Home Pricing' page. Need a more detailed budgeraty quote prior to design? Our detailed budgetary quotes are $50.
