Cass Community Social Services had certain criteria in mind for their tiny homes. We looked for comfortable, livable homes and wanted variety in our plans, Fowler says. Distinctive character was important as well. “We were drawn to one-story homes with ample porches or decks and wanted at least one ‘standout feature’ in each house,” such as the metal roof on one house, and the stained-glass window in another. “We like a flood of light, so we wanted many windows on most or all of the walls,” Fowler adds. CCSS also wanted relatively accessible floor plans ranging from 250-425 square feet. Each tiny home features a kitchen, bathroom and bedroom.
Advice, "If I were to make any major changes, I would get rid of the fireplace. It just ended up being a huge hassle with everything that goes into building a gas fireplace -- the gas lines, etc." Dean's key recommendation: "Never hire anyone on time and materials. Always do the job on a flat rate bid. Never ever give anyone a job unless there is a penalty for being late on the job. Your money is on the line but the workers don't see it that way." For his project, every sub had a flat rate deal. They were given timelines to finish their portion of the project. If the job took 2 days longer than estimated, the worker paid the daily penalty fee. This kept the job moving in the right direction. It kept subs from wasting time on the job.
