What is the price range for your tiny houses on wheels?
Our complete, turnkey tiny houses on wheels range between $37,000 and $89,000. For current product pricing, visit our online catalog. If you’d prefer an original tiny house, we also offer custom design work.
Can you build a tiny house that’s not on wheels, or an addition onto my house?
If you do not need a house on a trailer, and your property is near our shop in North Adams, we can build a permanently-affixed house of any size on a foundation, slab, or piers depending on what your local building code allows. If you’re planning to live in your tiny home full-time, you’ll need to check with your planning board to make sure it’ll be allowed.
How big can a tiny house on wheels be?
In order to be road-legal, our tiny houses on wheels are a maximum of 8 1/2′ wide and 13 1/2′ tall. The length of our houses ranges from 16′ to 35′.
Can you tweak your tiny house designs to my taste, or design/build a custom tiny house for me?
Please look through our plans and let us know what you like about our houses and what you’d change: we can build in any style, traditional or contemporary, and we can work with you to create a house that fits your budget. You can share inspiration photos with us via email or pinterest. We also design custom tiny houses: more information on custom houses is here.
Can I power my tiny house with solar energy?
The lowest-cost energy solution for tiny houses is plugging into an existing energy source, but for our customers who require an off-grid-lifestyle or supplemental solar energy, we partner with Alt-E Store, a Massachusetts-based alternative energy system supplier. Tiny house solar energy systems can cost anywhere between $3,500 and $10,000, depending on your appliance usage.
The amount of power you’ll need in your tiny house is less dependent upon the square footage of your house and more dependent upon the efficiency of your energy usage. Appliances like washer/dryers dramatically increase energy consumption. You can find out more about Alt-E Store’s recommendations for tiny house solar energy here. Plug your energy requirements into their load calculator to get an estimate of the amount of power you’ll need in your tiny house and what your solar requirements will cost.
How long does a tiny house take to build?
After the final design is reviewed with the customer, the contract is signed, the deposit has been received, materials arrive and the house enters our production line, our tiny houses will typically be ready for delivery within 6 weeks. Our production schedule varies throughout the year: if you need a tiny house ASAP, please let us know as early as you can that you’d like to reserve a spot for your tiny house project. Our 35 employees, with a combined experience in the construction field of 471 years, build six houses at a time.
Where can I legally park a tiny house?
Laws vary town by town, zone by zone. Please check in with your local planning board. Try It Tiny is a great resource for long term and short term parking rentals, and the American Tiny House Association website lists regional zoning laws and building codes regarding tiny houses on wheels and on foundations as well as information on how to approach your planning board to ask for permission to use your tiny house as a residence.
Our complete, turnkey tiny houses on wheels are registered by the RVIA, so they are legally considered RVs. They can be parked anywhere an RV can be parked.
Do you offer financing?
Yes! We offer financing through Lightstream.com. To get an estimate of your monthly payment, plug in your information at their website. Our tiny houses on wheels are legally considered RVs: you can also seek an RV loan through your own bank. DIY shells and frames are not RVIA-certified, so those cannot be financed.
Are your tiny houses on wheels certified?
Yes! Our turnkey movable tiny houses are certified by the Recreational Vehicle Industry Association, through a series of inspections on every aspect of the build process. B&B Micro Manufacturing is the only RVIA-certified tiny house builder in the Northeastern United States.
