Prefab Tiny Cottage in a Day?

This is a company that pre-manufactures their structures (called Ready Structures) in their manufacturing facility and then deliver them to your site and put it together in one day to make a prefab tiny cottage set up in a day possible.

Craven Construction uses structural insulated panels to put the home together once it’s delivered to your building site. The company currently builds full-size homes, tiny homes, accessory dwelling units, classrooms, and more using their prefabricated construction methods. Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!

    I’d live in one of these!
    Prefab has a place, and might get more municipal approval than custom construction. Easier to see the specs, if the building adheres to building codes, etc.
    And it clears a common complaint: ladders to lofts.
    I have no issues with lofts and ladders, but I’m in my late 40s, so that love might wane. ;)

    Downloaded the specs and prices.

    Cute houses. Steep prices. Quick solution for those with $ to spare. Remember they ship, and are located in Michigan, so factor that cost in too.

    If you’re a fan of odd-angled interior walls, this could be charming for you. Like the look of the exterior.

    Those prices are steep but I guess if you have the $ to spend it would work.
    Looking at these closely I don’t see how they could be used in colder regions without closing in the structure underneath and insulating it otherwise you would have some pretty cold floors.
    I couldn’t find any information on heating other than the optional fireplace or woodstove. Great cottages though if you can afford them.

    Hi everyone and thanks for the interest. First to our prices; at an average of $200 per square foot, we are right in the middle of the pack as far as prefab AND site built, green, high performance housing. The two rooms that can’t be made much smaller are also the most expensive rooms in a home, the bath and kitchen. All the residences are fully appointed and all the walls are vertical…
    As for cold climates: Ready Structures are designed for harsh climates. We use the same technology as the science station in Antarctica for our walls, roof and yes, floors. No cold spots, all structural insulated panels, warm in the worst winter, cool in the summer heat. For climate control we use air to air heat exchangers. Popular and proven overseas for years. Happy to discuss all aspects of my structures, send me an email!

    Am I missing something? Where is the bed? And is there a difference between the three 1428S’s shown?
