Anyone have any dealings with Tiny House Company or Tumbleweed?
I had a nice long phone chat with the owner of Tiny House. A very nice gentleman. He mentioned local building would be lots cheaper, not to mention transport costs.
Tumbleweed's transport cost is $1/mile from Iowa.
Another alternative, with apologies to John, might be a precut kit. I fould a site in British Columbia that has some really nice stuff, ranging from "tiny" to medium-small. And, with it being precut, you slide right around any import duties coming from Canada (where raw lumber would attract the tarriffs).
I have my personal eye on the "Mica II", somewhat similar to John's "Builder's Cottage". $12,250 US. It's basically a shell, but quality doors and windows are included.
If you're shopping higher up the food chain than I am, you can find a dream here! $45,000 for this one (the "Adams")!
They deliver and provide a very detailed and illustrated construction manual.
Keep in mind that prices don't include any interior features like plumbing, electrical, sheetrock, cabinets etc. Exterior is supplied, even Hardiplank is an option.
I think they also do custom kits. Maybe you could get one to John's plans.http://www.wildernesscabin.com/
