How To Customize or Modify Your Tiny House Design

The starting prices for B&B Micro Manufacturing’s Tiny Houses include standard materials unless otherwise noted.  All of our designs can be customized to your individual taste.

Starting prices generally include your choice of metal or vinyl siding, a minifridge, built-in electric two-burner cooktop, kitchen sink, bathroom sink, macerating toilet, and shower with vinyl insert.  All of these materials can be upgraded.

Certain customizations incur no cost to the customer, like specifying paint and stain colors.

The cost of swapping in different materials, appliances or fixtures, is reflected in the cost difference of the new item and its delivery and installation.

We are also happy to make design modifications when possible, including moving or changing the size of doors or windows or changing the length of the house. Design changes are billed at $50 per hour.

Toilet

A note on choosing your tiny house toilet: consider whether the house will move and whether the locations will have electric and water hookups.  Read more about tiny house toilet options here. 

Laveo Dry-flush Toilet: less expensive up front, more expensive per flush over time.  Uses electricity to flush but no water.

Dry Flush Toilet


Traditional flush toilet- use if your house will be permanently in place and directly tied into a septic or sewer system.  Uses water but no electricity.


Macerating Toilet: Use if you have water tanks.  The macerator uses water and electricity to grind up the waste into a liquid emulsion so it can be stored in the black water tank and then pumped out.  Macerating toilets are recommended for those who will be traveling with their houses.


Composting Toilet: This toilet doesn’t use electricity or water.  Check in with your town to see if Humanure composting system is allowed.


Incinerating Toilet: Does not use water and doesn’t drain, but rather uses electricity to incinerate the waste. A bowl liner is placed into the bowl before use, and when the flush button is pushed, it incinerates all the waste into ash.  The ash is periodically dumped out.

Fixtures and Colors

Choose any paint and stain colors. Choose any own kitchen & bathroom fixture (as long as it meets the RVIA’s standards).

Request changes to the blueprints at $50 per hour:

Window and door sizes and placement as well as roof shapes can be changed, depending on the design of the house.

Our road-worthy tiny houses are all the maximum legal width of 8 ½’ and range in length from 16’ to 32’: please inquire about changing the length of a specific house.

Cabinetry, a wardrobe, shelving, or other built-in storage can be added as space allows.  In addition, furniture can be designed and built-in for your specific house, such as fold-down dining tables, nightstands, and built-in sofabeds.

In certain cases, B&B’s designs for tiny houses on wheels can be converted into permanently-affixed houses by removing the wheel wells, re-configuring the plumbing system, and, if applicable, changing the dimensions to reflect your needs and zoning laws.

Please inquire about any changes you’d like to make to your house design and we will provide you with a quote.  We are happy to work with you to create the tiny house of your dreams!
