Funding Your Tiny Home
Once you know how much your tiny home will cost you will need a way to pay for the home. If you are paying cash see what your builder’s terms are and pay for the home. If the home is going to be financed there will be extra steps depending on the lender. Often times the lender may request a purchase agreement or additional paperwork. Each lender is different so let your us know who you intend to work with and they will help you appease them from there.

Tiny houses on wheels are legal in Washington state, but there are certain regulations and restrictions that apply depending on the location and intended use of the home. Here are some general guidelines:
Zoning laws: Zoning laws in Washington state vary by city and county. Some areas may allow tiny houses on wheels as accessory dwelling units (ADUs) on private property, while others may only permit them in RV parks or campgrounds. It is important to research local zoning laws and obtain any necessary permits or approvals before purchasing or building a tiny home on wheels.
Building codes: In Washington state, tiny houses on wheels must meet certain building codes in order to be considered safe and habitable. The Washington State Building Code Council has adopted Appendix Q, which provides standards for tiny homes on wheels that are 400 square feet or less. These standards cover things like ceiling height, egress requirements, and fire safety.
Road safety: Because tiny houses on wheels are considered vehicles, they must meet certain safety requirements in order to be legally transported on public roads. These requirements may include having a registered trailer, appropriate lighting and braking systems, and complying with weight and size limits.
Overall, tiny houses on wheels can be a legal housing option in Washington state, but it is important to do your research and ensure that you are complying with all relevant regulations and codes. Working with a reputable builder or consultant can help ensure that your tiny home meets all necessary requirements and is a safe and legal place to live.
Just like a traditional home a tiny home comes down to maintenance and upkeep. Our homes are built with predominantly traditional residential materials so they can be cared for just like a traditional home. If the home is maintained well it will last 40+ years. As long as all precautions are taken while transporting the home it can be transported safely for just as long!
The term tiny house can vary depending on who you ask. For our application, we construct tiny houses on wheels and we are confined by weight because the homes need to be transported down the road. For this reason, we offer lofted homes as long as 30’. For nonlofted homes, we go as long as 40’. We limit these sizes so the units can be transported safely down the road.
There are several tiny house builders and dealers all throughout the Nation. It is important to perform ample research and chose a builder you can trust. We recommend contacting any local builders in your area and arranging a tour of their offerings and their facilities. Once you have chosen a builder be sure to have a contract in place to protect you as a buyer.
Tiny houses can range in height based on their application. In order to transport a home down the road it must be under 14’ in height. All our units are under this limit to add to the flexibility of our builds.
