Yes! We do offer financing through 21st Mortgage. They finance with as low as 20% down and up to 23 yrs in term length. There is limited availablity so contact us for more information!

Installation

Our build time varies from model to model but generally, we can build one in 14-16 weeks.

Delivery is scheduled as soon as the home is completed but may take a week or two depending on driver schedules and other deliveries in process. Due to high demand please contact us early to get on the build schedule.

We recommend hiring professional mobile home setters for all our park model tiny homes. They will have knowledge of the local codes and standards. Our smaller towable tiny homes come with leveling jacks to stabilize the home. However we recommend that the frame is blocked up in multiple points with no weight on the tires if set up long term. We do not recommend using the tires and scissor jacks for support if home is parked permanently. The pad for the home should be level and made with compacted gravel or concrete. Park models have permanent hookups while the smaller towables have RV style connections.

We deliver nationwide and have delivered tiny homes to clients from coast-to-coast. We have even shipped to Hawaii, Europe, and New Zealand! Give us a call to discuss delivery anywhere in the world.

Yes we build shell homes that can be finished out by the client. The standard Shell package includes the home built with all siding and roofing, fully finished, sealed, painted on the exterior with all interior walls and lofts framed in. The Shell Plus package includes wiring, plumbing, and spray foam insulation. No interior wall coverings, floor coverings, cabinets, or fixtures are included. Either way the home is weatherproof and able to be locked up and secured so the interior can be finished out without weather issues or security concerns.

Management

Yes. Timbercraft LLC holds an Alabama Home Builders License and a Manufacturer’s License. We are ANSI 119.5 certified through PWA and are members of the Tiny Home Industry Association. We have liability insurance coverage as required by the state of Alabama.

We use only ReadyFab trailers custom made for our application. They have a 1/4″ steel flange on the sides of the trailer that is through bolted to the wall plate. Then the studs and rafters are tied together with metal strapping. All the sheathing is glued and ring-shank nailed.

Yes. The standard tiny homes on wheels are under the width and height restrictions of the DOT and you are not required to have any special permits to move them. You will need a 1 ton or larger dually pickup. The XL series and park home require professional haulers.

A tiny house on wheels weighs around 10,000-12,000 lbs. for a standard 24′ home. The larger park model homes can weigh as much as 25,000 lbs. Features and appliances can affect these numbers.

The park model homes have sewer and water pipes terminated under the home for permanent “hard pipe” connections. This is usually near the middle of the home under the bath and kitchen area. They also have a 100 amp outside panel that connects to your power supply on the back wall near the middle of the home. Propane hookups consist of a flexible hose that attaches to a tank and is usually placed near the front or hitch part of the home.

Our smaller towable tiny homes come with standard RV style hookups. A twist lock sewer drain hose adapter that can be hooked up to a tank, septic, or sewer system, a garden hose style water hookup is used for water, and 50 amp RV style plug for power.

Our tiny homes come with a high efficiency ductless mini split AC with heat pump. We also offer a hyper-heat unit for colder climates.

According to the specifics of the ANSI code for tiny homes they cannot exceed 399 sq ft.

We use closed cell spray foam insulation in all our tiny homes on wheels. We feel it is the best insulation available for them. It delivers R18 in the walls and ceiling. Testing conducted by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Research Center shows spray-applied polyurethane foam insulation between wood stud wall panels increased rack and shear strength two to three times compared with standard stick-built components with fiberglass insulation when sprayed onto oriented strand-board (OSB). This makes the home very strong and easy to heat and cool. The floor area is insulated using R-15 rockwool along with a 15 mil vapor barrier.

We don’t have show models set up but our plant is open for tours of the homes currently being built. We have 8-10 homes under construction at various stages of completion at any time. Call to schedule a tour!

Policies

Timbercraft requires a $1,000 deposit to join the design/build wait list. The design process begins about 3-4 months ahead of the start of the build. We’ll begin by sending you the base plans for the home for review as well as digital catalogs for the options. You can look everything over and make your selections. Then, based on your design and preferences, you’ll receive a quote for your home with the upgrades or reductions that you choose. Once you approve the design and the quote, we are ready to start building!

The payment terms are:

  1. 40% down,
  2. 40% at the shell stage and
  3. 20% at final minus the initial $1,000 deposit.

However, due to continued supply chain issues and longer lead times, we often bill for a 10% window deposit a bit earlier in order to get the windows ordered in time. If this is the case, you would be billed for 30% once the home goes online.

We accept cashiers check, cash, credit cards and PayPal. Some fees apply for electronic payments.
