Note: Although tiny homes are not the core offering of Fox Transportables, we offer them as part of Fox Tiny Homes. Fox Tiny Homes is a division of the Fox brand; created to fill the specific need for tiny homes for our customers.
The continued interest in tiny homes shows the phenomenon once seen as a passing fancy is a strong part of the mainstream housing market, worldwide.
Even though the tiny home is not a new product; consumers still struggle with gaining accurate information. Frequently, so-called experts promote their opinions and agendas to the undoing of consumers. The tiny home industry is an area where misinformation and partial information are rampant.
Here is a guide to help your understanding of tiny homes as well as a guide to the tiny homes Fox Tiny Homes can build for you.
All Tiny Homes Are Not Created Equally
A pretty façade and a fresh coat of paint can disguise a structural nightmare. When you consider a tiny home, do not be overly impressed with a lot of flash or fast talk from builders. Instead, consider:
- The builder’s experience in the field of tiny homes. Not all projects are alike. Building a tiny home takes a great deal of skill and finesse. If someone is a licensed builder but has no hands-on experience with little houses, you may want to look elsewhere.
- Quality of their materials used in projects. Building a tiny home and skimping on quality building materials is a poor mix. Cutting costs by using sub-par products will never end well.
- Reputation and referrals. Do not be shy about asking for references. A good builder is happy to share their past projects and referrals from customers. Transparency is vital in building trust.
A Tiny Home Can Sit Anywhere
The notion of packing your little house and heading to wherever the road takes you is often pitched to consumers thinking about tiny homes. However, in reality, rules exist that determine where and under what circumstances you may park your tiny home.
You should double-check with the authorities governing your intended parking area.
