What do I need to think about before ordering my NestPod™?
How to order your NestPod? - there's quite a lot to think about...
- Make sure you have somewhere to park it!
- Make sure you have access to a vehicle capable of towing up to 3500kg (you could hire someone to move it when you need to).
- Decide whether it will be on-grid, off-grid or a hybrid - research the realities of these options to see what you can really live with.
- Consider a Consultancy Visit to the NestHouse Prototype to discuss in detail - highly recommended (refundable against build)
- Check permissions for the site - if you will be living in it permanently you WILL require Planning Permission.
- Choose the size and configuration of your NestPod™ and commission Tiny House Scotland to start building.
- It can be complete and ready to furnish or fully fitted out to specification with bespoke furniture.
- Pay the deposit.
Payment Terms for Ordering a NestHouse or NestPod™ from Tiny House Scotland:
NB. VAT rates on NestHouses and NestPods vary depending on construction, size and end use.
Payment terms for all design and building work:
To secure Future date bookings in the build queue: £500 pre-build Deposit. Non refundable.
Design and build Contract:
• 5 weeks prior to build slot - a deposit of around 5-10% depending on any long lead time materials required - eg. trailer or chassis (less any pre-build deposit or previous consultation or survey fees).
• At build commencement a payment of around 65-70% (depending on amount of deposit).
• At handover the remaining balance due and cleared prior to handover ex-works.
NB. I reserve the right to invoice design and build time, should the project be cancelled at any stage by either party.
You may also need to budget for:
Site purchase unless you already own the land.
Site preparation or services required. Possible planning and building warrant services.
Renewable technology systems - solar panels, battery systems etc.
Delivery of the NestPod™ to site. Any connection/installation on site.
Please note that I am a lone master craftsman producing a limited number of builds per year - I prefer to have control of every step of the process and I am passionate about the sustainability of individuals designing and making to produce uniqueness and beauty; no corner cutting, no reverence for profit - just an artisanal dedication!
