Have you thought about embarking on the exciting journey of building your own Teacup Tiny Home? Congratulations on taking the first step towards a simpler, more sustainable lifestyle!

At Teacup, we understand that the process of creating your dream tiny home is more than just construction; it's a journey filled with excitement and learning. So we're going to walk you through the process of building a Teacup Tiny Home, step by step.

Before we dive into the details, we want to emphasize that our commitment to your satisfaction and enjoyment throughout this journey is paramount. We believe that the process of building your tiny home is as essential as the end result, which is why we're sharing this outline with you now. If you're seeking an even more in-depth guide, feel free to download it here.

Step 1: Sign Up to Build

Your journey with Teacup begins when you sign up to build your tiny home. All you need to get started is $5,000.00 + GST in Canadian dollars. This investment opens the doors to "The Teacup Academy," our online training portal. Within this portal, you'll receive valuable insights, knowledge, and guidance on planning, building, setting up, receiving, and maintaining your tiny home well into the future.

"The Teacup Academy" is your key to understanding every aspect of your tiny home project, from planning to possession. By gaining access to this resource, you'll not only be well-prepared but also confident in your venture into tiny living. You'll have the knowledge you need to communicate effectively with our team, set realistic expectations, and protect your investment by ensuring proper maintenance season after season, year after year.

Step 2: Welcome Onboarding & Proposal Review

At Teacup, we understand that building the perfect tiny home is a personal and unique journey. That's why we start by getting to know you, your needs, wants, and goals. Together with our team, we perform a comprehensive analysis to determine the specific features and elements your build requires to turn your tiny dreams into reality.

Once we've identified your needs, we employ our fully integrated project management app to create a customized proposal for your tiny home. This app will not only help us stay organized but also provide you with real-time updates on schedules, photos, and complete transparency regarding your build's progress.

Step 3: Purchase Agreement

With the specifics of your tiny home build determined and agreed upon, we proceed to finalize everything in a purchase agreement. This is a crucial step that outlines the responsibilities and expectations on both sides.

Once the agreement is in place, we get to the exciting part: ordering your trailer! At this point, a 40% deposit is due, and we begin the process of ordering all the necessary components and materials for your tiny home.

Step 4: Colour Selections

Selecting the right colors for your tiny home can be a fun and creative process. Teacup makes it even easier with our informative color selection guides. You'll be able to choose exterior and interior colors like a professional designer. Our team is always ready to assist you in creating your very own color palette that aligns perfectly with your vision.

Step 5: Build

This is where the magic truly begins to happen. You'll be able to follow the progress of your tiny home in real-time as we build it. Our client-build portal offers live, up-to-date photos, scheduling, and a complete course of construction, providing you with full transparency into the process.

Throughout the construction phase, you'll have the opportunity to enjoy walk-throughs with our team at specific checkpoints, including an orientation walk-through. At this stage, a second 40% deposit is due.

Step 6: Possession & Delivery

The day you've been eagerly awaiting has arrived: the possession and delivery of your tiny home. In The Teacup Academy, you'll find everything you need to know about preparing your site and how to receive your tiny home when it's delivered. Prior to this exciting day, we require the last 20% payment for your new home.

Step 7: Maintenance & Warranty

Owning a tiny home comes with responsibilities, and we're here to help you with them. In The Teacup Academy, we provide a seasonal maintenance schedule to ensure that you protect and maintain your investment. Our support team is always just a message away to address any questions or concerns you might have, for as long as you own your Teacup Tiny Home.

And, don't forget, when you choose Teacup, you receive a 1-year warranty on all workmanship, as well as the manufacturer's warranty on materials and appliances.

Building your Teacup Tiny Home is more than just a construction project; it's a life-changing experience filled with personal growth and the satisfaction of creating a unique space that perfectly suits your needs and desires. We're here with you every step of the way, ensuring that your journey is as enjoyable as the destination.
