Frequently asked questions

  • What is the production time for a tiny house?
    The maximum period can be up to 6 months, but some models are delivered in 6 to 8 weeks.
  • Can I have a personalized tiny house?
    Yes, we are available to create new solutions, but a personalized tiny house always has a high added cost as it requires the execution of new studies and projects. In the models produced by our company, you can have some different finishes and equipment, as long as they have the same dimensions and do not reduce the quality of the tiny house, with the cost always being adjusted, case by case. These changes must always be communicated before the award date.
