FAQs

Do you have a show home I can view?

We often have a cabin to view, although they are usually sold pretty quickly. Give us a call or contact us through our contact page to see if we can arrange a viewing for you.

Can you build on our site?

Generally our cabins are built in our yard in Auckland and transported to your property using a Hiab Transport truck. That being said, if delivery access is limited, we can build your Tiny Timber Home on-site too!

Are there different styles and finishes available for the cabins?

Yes there are multiple options available and the cabins are fully customizable. We have two basic designs (mono-pitch roof and gable roof - which you can read about on the Floor Plans page) that include timber weatherboard exterior cladding, full insulation, one window, one single door, electrical components (light + switch + double power outlet), iron roof, particle board interior finish and laminate flooring. Customized extras can always be added at your request and we are open to your design suggestions and will work with you to build a cabin perfectly suited to your requirements and budget.

Are the cabins insulated?

Yes the cabins are fully insulated - floor, ceiling and walls.

What maintenance is required for my Tiny Timber Home?

Maintenance requirements depend on the exterior finish of the cabin. Oiling is required on exposed timber cladding and we recommend oiling the cladding every 4-6 months in the first two years, then once a year. On choosing your finishings and on delivery, we can talk you through everything you need to keep your tiny home in perfect condition for year to come.

What are the dimensions of the cabins?

Our base model designs have base dimensions of 4.15 m by 2.4 m. The mono-pitch cabins have a ceiling height of 2.4 m at the high end and 2.2 m at the low end. This is customisable and can be discussed throughout the design process.

How do I get power to my Tiny Timber Home?

You can choose from a caravan plug fitting or standard extension cord plug to be fitted to the cabin. Power can then be provided from your house using an extension cord.

How much will my Tiny Timber Home Cost?

Prices start from around $14,000 + gst for a base model with no extras included. Transport to site and installation is an additional cost based on the distance from our yard in Auckland. Get in touch with one of our team to discuss your dream cabin and we'll talk you through the process and give you a free no-obligation quote to get you started.

What are the terms of payment?

We require a 40% deposit to cover the material costs prior to commencing construction, then full payment on delivery. Finance options are also available, so feel free to give us a call to discuss this.

Will I need a building consent?

Generally you will not require a building consent for structures with a floor area up to 10 m2. However, it is your responsibility to check the specific consent rules for your area before delivery.

What are the consent rules?

  • The building must not exceed 10m2 in floor area
  • The building must be set back from the property boundaries a minimum distance equivalent to the building height
  • There must already be an existing dwelling present on the property
  • The building must not be more than one storey, must not contain sanitary facilities or facilities for the storage of potable water and must not contain permanent cooking facilities.

Can you include a bathroom or a kitchen?

No, we generally do not include a bathroom or a kitchen as building consent would be required.

Do you build trailer homes?

Yes we do, building on a trailer allows you to include your kitchen, and bathroom and have no consent required.
