Frequently Asked Questions

Who do you sell to?

To build initial traction and brand, about half of our pre-sales are to private home buyers. As we grow, direct sales to builders for spec construction will represent 85% of our business. However, we recognize that individuals and families are always the end consumer, and create a product that will amaze them over years of ownership.

Who do you sell to specifically?

Certified builders. Our contract and sale is only to approved builders, regardless of spec construction or on demand for consumer. Sale is for the packaged home (kit). Construction contract is between home buyer and builder and we are not directly involved.

How much inventory do you carry?

Almost none. Typically, we have 1.5-5+ months from time of order/deposit until 1st delivery. We deliver in four Just In Time shipments that are spaced over the course of 3 months, allowing us to order only for paid projects. We are paid in full on the last delivery.
