Frequently Asked Questions
Q: I've seen a lot of TV shows that show Tiny Houses on wheels. Are the Cripple Creek Cabins available on wheels?
A: Our buildings are designed to sit on a foundation and we do not build them on wheels at this time.
Q: Are your buildings built to code?
A: The Creekside Manor and Bear Ridge have been through the official inspection process and are certified per the 2012 NC Residential Building Code. Customers are responsible for zoning approvals and for meeting code when connecting to utilities and making sure the foundation is built to code and ready for the cabin to be set.
Q: Are these tiny homes considered mobile homes?
A: No. The Creekside Manor and the Bear Ridge models are classified as modular living spaces. The Hunter is considered a portable building, more like traditional storage sheds.
Q: How much does delivery cost?
A: Delivery is free up to 100 miles from our production facility in South Carolina. There is a nominal $3 per mile thereafter.
Q: Can I put my building anywhere?
A: Typically, "portable buildings" that do not have plumbing, such as the Hunter model do not require approval when purchased for personal use.
Zoning for Tiny Homes, such as The Creekside Manor, can be impacted by various factors like expected usage (full-time or vacation destination). Other factors such as if the building will be used for commercial or personal use can affect zoning or code requirements. While some of our models are certified structures, you will need to check with your local town and do some research before making a purchase as each area has different zoning requirements.
Q: How do I prepare my location for my new building?
A: Your prepared site can vary based on the building style.
The Creekside Manor and Bear Ridge:
Per code, there must be a minimum of 18” between the bottom of the cabin subfloor and the ground (to allow for clearance needed for plumbing hook up. As such, these buildings will be attached to a block foundation on a perfectly level location. Not to worry! We will provide all customers with detailed foundation plans as part of the process.
You will also need to plan for your access to sewer, water and electric hookup at the location where your Tiny Home or building will be placed. This can dictate where you actually place your building. We recommend contacting a professional in your area for these services.
While it is still recommended to have a prepared pad, our delivery teams can use concrete block to level your building.
Q: How do you deliver the buildings?
A: Our drivers deliver the units fully built and assembled. Adequate space needs to be available to accommodate moving the shed to its desired destination. Typically, if going through a fence or between properties, there should be an extra 2 feet of space added to the width of the building for proper clearance. Low hanging electric lines or tree limbs should be considered as well.
Our delivery team will then toe nail the girders to the top plate of the foundation wall.
Q: Does Cripple Creek Cabins set up the utilities once my tiny home or office is delivered?
A: Your building will be prepared on the inside for electric and plumbing (depending on the model). You will, however, need a licensed professional to complete the utility hookup to the building.
Q: Do you offer financing?
A: While Cripple Creek Cabins does not provide funding or loans for these buildings, we may have some banks you could connect with; ask our sales team for current options. Additionally, we can recommend contacting your local credit union for their financing options.
Q: What kind of insulation do you use?
A: For our insulated models, we use only the best, closed-cell spray foam insulation! This is one of the most efficient insulating materials commercially available and delivers incredible energy savings. The name “closed-cell” comes from the cell structure of the finished insulation material. One cubic inch of polyurethane foam insulation contains millions of tiny plastic closed cells filled with Enovate®3000, a non-ozone depleting blowing agent. The blowing agent is captured within the cells which contributes to highly efficient insulating properties. In addition, closed-cell foam provides an inherent air barrier with low moisture vapor permeability, and excellent resistance to water.
Q: Do appliances come with the tiny homes?
A: The kitchens come with all the necessary hook ups for a refrigerator, stove, dishwasher and washer/dryer, but the appliances are not included.
Q: Where are you located and how far do you deliver?
A: We build all our Cripple Creek Cabins in Due West, SC. Our main NC sales location is in Statesville, NC at our Liberty Storage Solutions lot located at 1480 Northside Drive. You can view our buildings at many of our Liberty Storage Solution lots throughout North and South Carolina, including:
