As the popularity of tiny homes has skyrocketed over the years there are many builders starting to enter the tiny home scene. In this blog post we will take a look at two different tiny house builders and see what all they have to offer.
Tumbleweed tiny house company is a company located in Sonoma, California. The company designs and builds small houses between 65 and 887 square feet. Many of the tiny houses built by tumbleweed tiny house company are timber-framed homes that are permanently attached to a trailer for mobility. The Tumbleweed tiny house company also has the option to either buy a model already designed by the company or you can design your own.
All of the Tumbleweed tiny houses are certified green with a TRA certification. This means their tiny houses conserve water, are energy efficient, and made from green materials. Some ways the company can achieve this is by installing low flow water fixtures, composting options, energy efficient appliances and lighting, excess materials recycled offsite or donated to the Restore, etc.
If you are not quite sure about the tiny house life style yet the Tumbleweed tiny house company has tiny house rentals located all throughout the United States. Here you can get a taste of what it may be like to officially embrace the tiny house lifestyle. This is a perfect getaway for anyone who is on the fence about downsizing and just needs that extra little push.
Mint Tiny House Company is based out of Vancouver, BC, Canada. Mint has been manufacturing Tiny House RV’S and Park models since 2014 and has grown to become one of the largest tiny house manufacturers in the Northwest. The company prides itself in having values and principles like integrity, quality, safety, environmental consciousness, and Innovation.
Mint has three different tiny house models titled Canada goose, Loft edition, and Napa edition. Each model then can be customized by a number of different layouts depending on the model picked. You can also customize your tiny home with unique and fun exterior colors like Cocoa cupcake, black magic, gotta have it, cavern moss, and six other fun inventive names.
The lead time for Mint to build you your very own customized tiny house RV is 8 weeks. However, depending on the amount of builds they have going on it may give or take a few weeks. Typically Mint has orders placed 6 to 7 months in advance to when the build will be complete. If you want to drop in to the workshop while your tiny house is being built you are more than welcome to. Mint just asked that you schedule an appointment Monday through Friday after 4:30 P.M. This is due to safety concerns within the workshop and could lead to accidents if there is an unscheduled visit.
Mint also offers a one year warranty on all structural and material defects for your tiny home. The trailer is covered under a one year manufacturer’s warranty, and the roof has a 40 year manufacturer’s warranty.
