THOF FAQ’s

We welcome your questions! Please contact us for more information and to discuss your tiny home or cottage!

What's the difference between a tiny house and a cottage?

At Perch & Nest, we consider tiny houses to be homes on wheels, also known as THOW’s (tiny homes on wheels) and cottages to be homes on permanent foundations (THOFs). We provide complete construction of tiny home RVs up to 40′ and renovations and conversions of unique foundation spaces (cottage homes) up to 1000 sq ft.

What size is a cottage?

Cottages come in all shapes and sizes. However, we only restore, and convert dwellings up to 1000 sq ft.

How does financing work for foundation based homes?

Renovation and rehabilitation projects are usually completed using a standard contracting plan. 50% initial deposit and 50% upon completion. Typically, these projects are eligible for traditional lending such as construction, equity, or mortgage type loans. Some builds may be eligible for tiny home lending options as well.

Do you have cottage plans to choose from?
No, because we design around each unique and existing space, a custom plan will be designed with your space and needs in mind.
Where do you provide foundation services?
Because we are a small group of craftsman, our foundation work remains in our home state of NC.
How do I get started with a tiny home cottage?
Contact us to schedule a time for us to visit your space. We will discuss your ideas as well as inspect the space and provide a free estimate for your concept. You will approve custom designs prior to beginning any work.
