DIY tiny home shell

Your shell is waiting

A big part of the tiny house movement is rooted in the Do-It-Yourself mindset, which we support wholeheartedly. We can finish a shell to any stage that you’d prefer, but here are some options to give you a starting point.  

All estimates below are based on a 24′ x 8.5′ x 13.5′ bumper pull tiny house shell with the “standard” finishes listed:

1. The Guru shell – $21,500 This includes a fully dried in exterior (ZIP system, OSB sheathing, and finished metal roof) – minus the window, doors, and siding. Recommended for the most industrious DIYers amongst you. 

2. The Pro Shell – $31,500 Includes the above plus completely finished exterior with painted LP smartside siding, standard windows, and a painted fiberglass exterior door. The inside is a blank canvas for you to complete. For those that feel confident tackling electrical, plumbing, and all interior finishes on their own.

3. The Expert Shell – $38,000 This option includes everything in the Pro Shell plus roughed in electrical wiring, plumbing, and closed-cell spray foam insulation. If you don’t feel comfortable with electrical or plumbing, but want to handle all the other interior finishes this is the best option for you.

4. The Enthusiast Shell – $45,000 Includes everything in The Expert Shell as well as wall and ceiling coverings (pine tongue and groove) and finished floor (3/4″ oak hardwood). This mostly finished shell would leave the cabinets, storage, fixtures, and finishing details for you to complete on your own. For the budding DIYer.

If the shell you want is a different size or you want a custom level of finish different from those listed, just let us know what you have in mind and we’ll give you a custom shell quote.
