Answers to Your Questions
How do I see one of your homes?
Our model home is located in Duvall, Washington, and is available for viewing by appointment. Please contact us to set up a time for you to enjoy a private showing. We would love to see you there!
Do you have information about where to park a tiny home?
Because Seattle Tiny Homes are licensed as RV travel trailers, you should be able to park one of our homes anywhere it is legal to park an RV. For our customers who are purchasing a home, we have contacts with several private properties in the Greater Puget Sound area that have sites with RV hookups. Because zoning laws vary by county and municipality and can change with little notice, we are not able to provide information on other places where you can legally park one. We encourage you to check with local tiny home forums online, network with likeminded people, and inquire at the zoning or planning office of the municipality or county where you would like to live.
Are Seattle Tiny Homes RV certified?
Yes. Seattle Tiny Homes is certified by Washington state as a manufacturer of RV travel trailers and as an RV dealership.
What makes a Seattle Tiny Home different than other tiny homes?
We build each home customized specifically for each individual, paying extraordinary attention to detail and quality. We build your home just how you want it, down to the last square inch. In addition, the interior of a Seattle Tiny Home is up to 18’’ wider than many other tiny homes. That’s because the trailers our homes sit on are specifically designed for tiny homes, allowing for optimal room and stability.
Does Seattle Tiny Homes offer financing?
Yes. We work with select lenders who will finance tiny homes. We are part of the NADA, which lenders typically expect. Contact us directly for information on which lender would be best for you.
Can I get insurance for my Seattle Tiny Home?
Yes. Seattle Tiny Homes is a licensed RV manufacturer and dealer and offers competitive rates through several national insurance companies.
Can you build a home for me using another tiny home plan?
Yes. We are happy to build a tiny home for you based on a house plan you own while still offering our personalized service that makes Seattle Tiny Homes unique.
Can Seattle Tiny Homes help me build my own home?
Yes. We offer consultations in design and planning. For example, we offer a package deal that includes reviewing your design, two phone hours, plus 5 email exchanges for $195, and $75/hour after that. Please visit our Tiny Design page for options.
How do I connect my Seattle Tiny Home to utilities?
The best solution depends on your situation. If you want a backyard cottage, you maybe be able to connect your home’s existing utilities. In other situations, RV hookups and tanks may work. You might also live totally off the grid. We will discuss all options with you in the planning phase.
Is it possible for my tiny home to be totally off the grid?
Yes. Seattle Tiny Homes will work with you to fit your lifestyle. Off the grid options include propane or generator power, solar power, composting toilets, and gray water solutions.
How long does it take to build a tiny home?
Once the plans have been selected, you can typically receive your tiny home within 90-120 days. Of course, if your plan requires specialized components or construction, it may take longer. In summary, trailers take around 3 weeks, starter homes take around 12 weeks, and completed homes take approximately 20 weeks.
Are you a green builder?
Seattle Tiny Homes uses green building methods as much as possible. However, green building techniques developed for regular construction are not always appropriate for a tiny home on wheels. The biggest environmental gains come from living in a small home that uses far fewer resources than a larger home, both during its construction and in daily use.
Are Seattle Tiny Homes handicap friendly?
Depending on your needs, we can incorporate features that are handicap friendly. These include ADA showers and toilets, grab bars, wider doorways, hospital beds, and more. Making a home accessible to people with disabilities can be important for aging in place. Because our homes are completely personalized, we are happy to discuss your specific needs and create a solution.
Do you build homes for people with allergies or sensitivities?
Yes. Seattle Tiny Homes has experience in helping people with certain allergies and chemical sensitivities. Please contact us for more specific information.

Shipping to Hawaii, Alaska, or international destinations can be arranged from the ports of Seattle and Portland.
