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.
