We’re continuously trying to improve our offerings and ease of purchase process for our tiny houses on wheels. You may have noticed that the pricing on our website has changed. We hope our new pricing system is a better reflection of what you can expect to actually pay for one of our tiny houses, not just the minimum price for a bare-bones tiny house.
Higher Tiny House Prices?
The prices on our website are higher than they were last year. This is for two reasons: 1. The supplier pricing has increased for certain materials, and 2. Our new pricing system reflects what the tiny houses look like in their photos, rather than the starting price for a bare-bones house, which is how the prices were previously displayed.
1. Pricing Increase for Certain Materials & Techniques.
In the three or so years we’ve been building tiny houses, we’ve done a lot of experimentation. In many ways, building tiny houses is quite similar to building “regular-sized” houses, which we were doing previously. But we’ve also done some experimentation and learned a lot in the process. We’ve updated our pricing to include our best knowledge of how long it takes to build certain features, as well as updated our pricing with the latest cost of materials and fixtures on the market. Wherever there is a difference in what you see in our product photos versus what you get based on the latest knowledge and new or improved materials and appliances, we’ll note it in the product description.
2. Revamp Pricing System For Clarity.
We wanted to remove confusion over the starting price, which includes basic materials and appliances, versus the finished price, which includes the higher-quality and heavier-duty materials and prices you see in many of the photographs.
For example, compare the kitchen of the Hoosic, with its two-burner electric cooktop, no oven, basic mini-fridge under the counter, and basic countertops, with the kitchen of the Arcadia, with its propane/electric stove and oven with a range hood, built-in stainless steel fridge drawers, and custom poured concrete countertops. Previously, both houses’ starting price reflected the basic kitchen, so customers were coming to us with the understanding that the kitchen they saw in the Arcadia could be had for the basic pricing of the kitchen in the Hoosic.
