The NOMAD Cube is a tiny house building that can move and adapt to almost any location. The tiny homes are resistant to termites, moisture, and fire; they are a strong, lightweight structure that facilitates both easy construction and reduced shipping costs. The Cube tiny house building is engineered for ease-of-assembly that should be done by at least two people who have a bit of technical knowledge and skills of that of a handyman. By that, you should have someone who is skilled at a wide range of repairs, especially around with repairs around the home. Some of the things that can help include some trade skills, such as the building of small structures, repair and home maintenance work, for both the interior and the exterior.
The Cube tiny house building contains a full kitchen and bathroom which will require a plumber and an electrician to connect services to the fixtures. Depending on your trades skill sets, contractors may be required to help install the tiny house foundation and the roofing. To provide ease of construction and mobility, the Cube tiny house building is designed to rest on five cast-in-place concrete piers, or with screw piles which are metal, piles screwed into the ground by machine. These systems help to minimize any disturbance to the environment and can be easily removed if needed. You can also choose to use conventional foundation systems such as concrete walls, treated timbers, concrete slabs, or stone. You'll want to note that even though the Cube weighs a lot less than a conventional home, depending on the approving authorities, you may still need a conventional foundation and possibly certification by a state, or a provincial licensed structural engineer.
Things not included with the Cube tiny house building include foundations, roofing, interior wall finishes, shower door, and ladder or stairs which are excluded from the Cube’s pricing. Larger appliances, to include a fridge, range, and stove hood vent are also excluded from the Cube pricing as they are usually something that is selected by the customer's preference and the type of power that is available whether it be electricity, natural gas, or propane. Purchasing these larger appliances locally also means reduced shipping costs that would normally be added to the purchase price. The Cube tiny house building is designed to be modular to allow more than one Cube unit to be connected. There are a variety of Cube layout combinations that are possible when adding multiple Cubes using NOMAD Connect and adding, or by deleting the kitchen and bathroom modules.
