How to Order your NestPod

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!
