We are located in one the most beautiful cities in the country; Chattanooga, Tennessee. Surrounded by mountains, water and inspiration everywhere you look.
The build time will vary depending on the complexity of your build. Once we get your trailer (3-5 weeks to manufacture depending on the season) it will take approximately 5-8 weeks from there. (all times are approximate and will be determined on a per client basis.)
The amazing thing about these CUSTOM works of art is that they are guided by your personal needs, wants and personal preferences. A ballpark figure for our builds range between $20-$80K. Tiny House Chattanooga specializes in completely custom tiny homes which solely depend upon the client’s budget.
We’re currently in the processes of finalizing our plans. Once they are approved, we’ll offer them for purchase on this site. Until then, there are many incredible designs on the internet; some even are free. Until we have ours ready to sell, we’re happy to help navigate you through the tiny house plans “abyss”.
No problem! Let us do the hard part so you can spend your time doing more of what you feel comfortable with… making your tiny feel like home! Going this direction will give you time to personalize your tiny but money, too. Depending on your definition of a “shell”, the cost will depend solely on how much you want us to build. We encourage a scheduled Skype call so we can get the details of what you’d like to do.
Depending on the design of your tiny house, you may have several options. We have partnerships with manufacturers who specialize in tiny house trailers. These manufacturers provide the strongest and safest trailers on the market, Each trailer is customizable to fit your custom design.
Not in all cases. We have heard of states that require a special endorsement on your license when you reach a certain weight. Just make sure to do your homework and check with your state requirements.
If you are moving it yourself, we recommend a ¾ or 1 ton truck. A diesel works best but a large V8 will do the trick as well. If you don’t own a truck, you can contract a local company to move it for you.
It really depends on how you want your Tiny House to function. Will it be traveling a lot? Is it more for semi-permanent living? Truly, the options are endless. From RV style, which includes electric (30 or 50 amp panel with a RV hook up) and fresh water hook-ups, to more permanent placement options for plumbing and electricity. We can even do RV style grey and black water tanks if you’d like. Composting toilets are all the rage but RV or conventional toilets are great options, too. Wanna go off-grid? We also install solar and/or wind for power.
Tiny House Chattanooga does not offer in-house financing. However, we do have partnerships with lending institutions.
We recommend closed cell foam for the walls, for the rigidity and R-value, and Roxul in the floors. If you prefer something else, we’re happy to discuss other options.
Absolutely! We can use a third party delivery company to bring your tiny house to you; no matter where you are in the US. Our shipper is 100% insured and highly experienced delivering loads of all shapes, sizes and weights.
The short answer is no. At the time of this writing, we are considering how we can make this a feasible option in the near future.
