Build process & Pricing structure

Build Process  

At Elite Tiny Homes we understand that building your dream tiny home is a big decision. That's why we're committed to making the process as smooth and informative as possible. We care greatly about our clients and want you to feel confident and excited every step of the way.


Step 1: Explore and Connect

We welcome you to visit our workshop at 1256 State Highway 16, Waimauku, Auckland and see our tiny homes first-hand! This is a great opportunity to get a feel for the quality and craftsmanship that goes into each build. You can also connect with us virtually or by phone to discuss your vision and we’ll answer any questions you may have about building with us. 

During this initial stage, we'll share information on:

Available build times: We'll provide a realistic timeline based on your chosen design and current project volume. The lead time falls within a range of 6-8 weeks.

Customisation options: While we specialise in pre-designed tiny homes, we're open to exploring customisation possibilities. If you have existing drawings or a snazzy vision board, feel free to share them with us.

Important Note: Customisations may require additional costs due to the need for adjustments to the base design. We'll discuss these potential costs openly and transparently throughout the process.


Step 2: Ready to build? Securing your spot

Once you've explored our designs and feel confident moving forward, you can reserve your ‘build spot’ with a non-refundable deposit of $10,000. This deposit secures your place in our production schedule. At this stage in the process a contract is written up outlining the specifications and pricing based on your selections. With the signed contract in hand and further 50% deposit of the overall cost, we'll immediately pre-order all necessary components, ensuring a smooth and efficient build process.


Step 3: The construction phase

As your tiny home embarks on its physical journey, we extend a warm invitation to visit our workshop and witness its progress first-hand! Simply coordinate a viewing date with Dan or Sally at least 48 hours in advance please. We understand that preferences may evolve during the building process. While significant changes after material pre-ordering might be challenging, we're happy to discuss minor adjustments to ensure your tiny home reflects your vision.


Step 4: Transport

Once you've selected the ideal location for your tiny home, we'll happily put you in touch with a network of reputable and insured transport companies. These certified providers specialise in the safe and efficient delivery of tiny homes, ensuring your dream arrives at its final destination with the utmost care. Prior to transport we kindly request payment of the remaining balance before your tiny home embarks on its journey.



Pricing structure 

We offer a transparent pricing structure with guides for our standard plans.

Secure your Build Spot: A non-refundable deposit of $10,000 secures your place in our build queue.

Staged payments: A 50% down payment of the total cost is due 6-8 weeks before your scheduled build start date.

Final payment before delivery: The remaining balance is due in full before your tiny home is carefully transported to its final destination.


Building your dream tiny home should be an exciting adventure. Let Elite Tiny Homes guide you through the process with clear communication, expert craftsmanship, and exceptional service.

We look forward to partnering with you!
