  • Site preparation (ie: building foundation) can be done simultaneously during the construction in factory.
  • Construction and permitting can be completed in 3 months
  • Built on a permanent foundation this tiny house is LEGAL as an ADU or primary dwelling

FIRE RESISTANT & ECO-CONSCIOUS

  • Resilient to wildfire, earthquake, extreme weather patterns due to climate change.

  • As fires become the new normal in California (and beyond), this building uses fire-resistant materials such as a standing seam metal roof and cement board panel siding.

  • With a tiny footprint of less than 300sf, this prefab minimizes natural resources, reduces construction waste, and good for your pocketbook! Utility cost is a fraction of a standard size home.

  • By using high quality materials that are non-toxic (no formaldehyde or off-gassing), this prefab provides healthy interior living for chemically sensitive people.

  • SOL HAUS DESIGN is collaborating with a reputable factory builder for the modular units.

  • Quality building. Less waste. Energy efficient. Minimal impact on the Earth.

  • Factory building minimizes construction waste and increases efficiency, compared to traditional “stick-built” construction.

FREQUENTLY ASK QUESTIONS

When will the prefab unit be available? How can I tour the unit?

We are currently finalizing the cost with the factory builder and verifying the structural engineering for permiit processing. We will be building the first prefab in Santa Paula, CA this summer in 2021. Estimated completion date is fall 2021.

Many have requested a tour of this unit, and we’re excited to announce this can be arranged! You’re welcomed to see the completed unit in the factory in Santa Paula, coming this summer/fall! Please sign up for updates in our newsletter.

What is the cost for this prefab unit?
This prefab is a turn-key solution that includes appliances, lighting, interior finishes, and cabinetry. Also this structure is built with exceptional quality: energy efficient, fire resistant and built with non-toxic materials.
The initial estimate is $150k. We are finalizing the cost with the factory builder now. The cost savings will be in the state permit processing and efficiency in construction, not in cheaper materials. The goal is to build multiple units simultaneously with economy of scale. This is a scalable model to provide affordable, quality housing that can be accessible to everyone. 
Can you offer this unit outside of California?

We are focusing on the first build in southern California (Santa Paula, CA) to finalize pricing and permit processing. If you are interested in building one anywhere in California, please let us know! This build can be built simultaneously with the first build in Santa Paula.

After the first build is completed this year, we will be offering it to other states throughout the US. 

Can I change the design or have it customized?

Yes! The prefab can be completely customized to your needs. Generally you can change the colors of the exterior and interior materials. We will also be providing other models that are larger – 500sf, 750sf & 1200sf – one to two bedroom units. The intention of the prefab is to minimize the cost with economy of scale. In general, the structure cannot be changed without a change in cost.

I would like to get several units on my property. Can I connect them with a courtyard?

Yes! Our larger vision is to build multiple units for a tiny house community. If you haven’t seen Vina’s set up with her tiny house and tiny office connected with a courtyard, you can check out photos here: https://www.solhausdesign.com/vinas-tiny-house/

Is this unit designed for off-grid capability?

Yes! The first unit we are building will be powered with solar panels. This is required in California for new ADUs (accessory dwelling unit). Because the unit is designed with passive heating/cooling and energy efficient fixtures and appliances (and a tiny footprint!), the required electrical power is minimal.
