Outline of the Typical Design and Purchase Process
- Visit – Browse the Display Yard – 1840 Petaluma Blvd. North, Petaluma, CA
- Arrange a one hour complimentary design meeting with Stephen
- Site visit to review feasibility
- Approve Steve’s design proposal and contract
- Sign contract and make your first payment
- Make progress payments & ready your site for delivery
- Receive your Little House 1 – 3 months after signing
We can generally design, develop and deliver your project in as little as six weeks from the time of contract signing. Contrast this with a conventional remodeling project which typically involves building permits, shopping for contractors, and or architects and engineers, compounded by the delays associated with all the requisite intercommunication: The speedy development and delivery of a Little House on the Trailer is one of its greatest assets.
Visiting the Display Yard
Our display models are open for viewing every Saturday from 10:00 to 4:00, and our open house host Katie Remley is available to answer questions. Please call us if you would like to arrange a yard visit by appointment – we can arrange something on short notice.
Pricing Your Little House on the Trailer
The price range for the majority of the units we build is $12,000.00 to $65,000.00. A modest, rough framed 120 square unit may be as low as $12,000.00. Typically you can expect the cost of your finished unit to range from $150.00 per square foot to $200.00 per square foot.
Site feasibility and Location on Your Site
Steve visits your site in order to review the feasibility of delivery and installation, and to assist in specifying the exact site location on your property. We have installed our Little Houses in very challenging settings: Hills, fences, gates, and existing trees etc. should not be assumed to be an impediment to delivery and location without a site visit. The Little House on the Trailer works closely with highly qualified and licensed movers and installers with years of experience moving and locating homes and trailers. A client may also be asked to assist in the location of their existing septic, water, electrical service etc.
Design: In Collaboration Our Clients
Collaboration with the customer is part of each Little House on the Trailer. Some buyers wish to do their own finish work, others elect to have us create a house with all appliances installed and a high level of finish throughout. Our Little Houses usually conform to the style and finish of the main house.
