    Answer This Question

    A:  Thanks for your question. It isn't considered as either one of those. These are small home kits. Once built, you'll have a real home.

      Q:Does the FRAME KIT include the spiral stairs and the outer walls?

      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Great question, CatX. No, the staircase isn't included. When we designed this we determined that it is more affordable for the customer to purchase a stair kit from the Home Depot. They have beautiful options.

              A:  I?ma licensed GC and the build costs would at minimum need to include foundation, framing, electrical, and plumbing?and I would assume drywall, painting, flooring, and other subs. Easily could run $50K-$75K to build

                  Answer This Question

                  A:  Hi cstevens! I'm happy to help you. Yes, we can handle the snow load.

                  by|Jun 8, 2023

                    A:  Yes, without seeing the plans for verification, I?m fairly certain it?s designed to handle zones with the heaviest snow loads, and building code requires energy efficiency, so walls and roof must have framing space for insulation.

                      Answer This Question

                      A:  I?m a licensed GC and yes, permits would be required to build this dwelling. In most (if not all states) code would require the owner to apply for general construction, electrical, and plumbing permits at minimum.

                      by|Jun 7, 2023

                        A:  Hello Haren, Yes, as the friendly GC mentioned in the comments, you'll need a permit.

                                A:  See my answer above. You would need to hire contractors to assemble/build this structure. If you?re incredibly proficient in DIY projects, you may be able to handle the steel framing and some tasks, but it?s not advisable to tackle plumbing and electrica.

                                  A:  Hello Benabe, Our frame kits are designed to be erected by the customer and a few handy friends. The rest of your build will depend on how skilled you are at home improvements. You'll need to hire a licensed plumber and electrician plus get permits.
