Nearly 50 percent of our customers finance their purchase by refinancing their primary home or getting a home equity line of credit. Many also choose to rent their backyard house to offset payments. Here’s how the average monthly cost of financing compares to the average rent for a one bedroom in markets where the Dwell House is currently available.
From a clear starting price of $389,000 in total costs, you know the numbers before work even begins.
Traditional construction comes with design fees, permitting costs, contractor payments, subcontractor payments, and—almost inevitably—unpredictable budget overruns.
A FEW THINGS THAT CAN EFFECT COST
Our base price includes up to 50 feet of electrical, water, and sewer and up to 100 feet of craning distance. We’ll assess your backyard and tell you if it requires additional utility or craning costs before you make your purchase.
If your home electrical panel is under 200 amps or has less than 85 amps of additional capacity, we’ll likely need to upgrade. Don’t worry, we’ll take care of all the paperwork and project management for you.
The vast majority of our installs can use our standard foundation. If you live in an area where a specially engineered foundation is required, we’ll work together with you to see if an alternative foundation design is possible.
If you need us to tear down that old shed, remove that dead tree, or provide significant landscape repair after a Dwell House installation—we'll work with you to get that done.
