FAQs

A tiny home is a small, compact dwelling typically measuring less than 500 square feet.

Tiny homes can be built on a permanent foundation or on a trailer, making them easily transportable. They often feature creative and efficient use of space and can include amenities such as a kitchen, bathroom, sleeping area, and living area.

Many people choose to live in tiny homes as an alternative to traditional, larger homes, for reasons such as affordability, mobility, and a simpler lifestyle.

The average cost of a tiny home in the United States is $52,000, coming in 87% cheaper than the average traditional home. Our most affordable models start in the low $20,000’s.

Required permits will vary county by country across the nation. While we may be able to give you a general guide to permitting, we highly recommend that you check with your local government for the most accurate information pertaining to your situation before moving forward with any purchase.

Warning: some counties drag the permitting process on for months, if not years… So make sure to get a head start!

Absolutely!

Since our models are generally smaller than a traditional home, a 2-in-1 heating and cooling system can get the job done with no problem! We offer this in each of our models at a very competitive price.

Most tiny homes are pretty, well, tiny… so they are ideal for 1 or 2 people.

However, Easy Homes offers a range of sizes for our expandable home units, the larger of which can easily fit an average family without feeling too cramped!

Our tiny homes on wheels, expandable homes, flat packs, and spare room units can all be equipped with our Off-Grid package, which includes solar panels for sustainable electricity.

Our units leave plenty of room for natural light and use state-of-the-art insulation methods to increase energy efficiency. In addition, we offer add-ons like incinerating toilets to reduce waste and conserve water. Contact us with any questions or click here for more sustainability ideas.

Utility bills will vary, but when it comes to heating and cooling, smaller spaces almost always mean smaller utility bills (nice!).

Most tiny homes and other mobile or temporary housing solutions are NOT covered by a standard homeowners insurance policy.

Instead, coverage is usually avaiable through RV or mobile home insurance. Double check with your insurance provider for the most accurate information regarding your exact unit.

Of course not! We take care of the construction off-site, deliver right to your doorstep, and then finish the installation on-site with our in-house labor team or 3rd party partners.

Yes. All of our models are subject to rigorous safety standards (structural, electrical, plumbing, and fire). In fact, our homes are designed to withstand a magnitude 8 earthquake! Feel free to contact us for additional information.

Absolutely! To go off-grid you’ll need access to your own electricity source (solar), a water source (well or natural spring), and an efficient waste management system. We’re more than happy to go over our off-grid options with you, just give us a call or shoot us an email.

An RV (recreational vehicle) is a type of vehicle that is designed for temporary living, usually for travel and camping purposes. RVs include features such as sleeping areas, kitchens, and bathrooms. They are built on a chassis and are typically classified as vehicles, so they must comply with the safety standards set by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

A mobile home is a type of prefabricated housing that is built off-site in a factory and then transported to the location where it will be used. Mobile homes are typically larger than tiny homes and are meant to stay in one place, usually in a mobile home park. They are connected to utilities such as water, sewer, and electricity.

A tiny home on wheels is a small, compact home that is built on a trailer and is designed to be easily transportable. They are similar to tiny homes on a permanent foundation, but they are built on a trailer, making them legally classified as RVs. They are designed to be energy-efficient and often feature creative and efficient use of space.

The main difference between these three types of homes is their purpose, design, and size. RVs are mainly used for traveling, mobile homes are meant to stay in one place and tiny homes on wheels are designed for mobility and energy efficiency.

Pros:

  • Lower cost of living, mortgage and maintenance
  • More affordable than traditional homes
  • More mobile and can be moved to different locations
  • Less clutter and more minimalistic lifestyle
  • More environmentally friendly

Cons:

  • Limited living space
  • Limited storage space
  • Zoning and building code restrictions
  • Issues in obtaining financing and insurance

There are a few options for getting internet access in a mobile tiny home:

  1. Cellular data: You can use a cellular hotspot or a mobile data plan to connect to the internet. This option is great for those who plan to travel frequently and want to have internet access on the go.
  2. Satellite internet: Satellite internet providers offer plans specifically designed for RV and mobile homes. This option can provide internet access in remote areas where other options may not be available.
  3. Public Wi-Fi: Some RV parks, campgrounds, and rest areas offer free or paid Wi-Fi for visitors. This can be a convenient option if you plan to stay in these types of locations frequently.
  4. Hardwired internet: This option involves running a wired internet connection to the tiny home. This can be done by installing a wired connection during the building process or by retrofitting an existing tiny home. This option is not ideal for mobile homes but it is feasible for tiny homes on a permanent foundation.

It’s important to weigh the pros and cons of each option and choose the one that best fits your needs and budget.

Our smaller units are all best suited for customers who only want one bedroom, but we have larger options that can accommodate up to three (3). Still not sure which model is best for you? Contact us and we’ll guide you in the right direction!
