We are constantly searching the United States to find builders of tiny houses and
places you can buy Park Model Homes. We do not endorse any of these companies,
we simply aim to give you the as many options as possible to help your search for a
Park Model Home. If you are a dealer of Park Models in Kansas please send a link to
your website to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be glad to add your
company to the directory.
Kansas Tiny Houses and Park Models
As of now, we currently do not have any listings for sellers of Park Models or Tiny
Houses in the state of Kansas.
The good news is that tiny homes or Park Models that are under 400 sq. ft. are
required to comply with the laws for RVs which are the same throughout the U.S. So
if you were to buy a Park Model from someone in a neighboring state, it would be
built to the same standards as one built anywhere in the U.S.
Of course once you purchased a park model if you decided to make it a
permanent residence you would have to comply with all of the state and local
regulations depending on where you reside. But that would be true of a park model
you bought in Kansas as well.
This differs from, say a larger modular home. Modular homes are built in the
factory to conform to the building code of the location where they will be placed when
completed. Therefore if you purchased a modular home from someone in a different
state and moved it to your land you would have to get it certified for the location you
were moving it to.
So if you are looking for a tiny home in Kansas you may want to check out the
park models in some of the other states and see what they have to offer. There is
generally a charge to have a tiny home delivered to your location depending on the
number of miles it is from the dealer.
Shipping Container Homes
Since I have had some trouble finding tiny home builders or park model dealers in
Kansas I decided to use this space to talk about the current trend of building houses
using shipping containers. (sometimes called "conex" or "connex" containers). Many
people consider shipping containers ideal for building a "green" tiny house because
they are an ideal size and they enable you to reuse or repurpose something.
Shipping containers are generally feet wide and 20 or 40 feet long. Some come
in slightly larger sizes as well. This makes them a good size for what most people
consider a "tiny house". But they are also easily scalable so if you wanted to expand
to a larger home it is fairly easy to do, by simply adding more containers.
The pictures below show some examples of tiny houses that were built using
shipping containers. These containers are available to buy from Shipped.com from
many locations throughout the United States (and in fact throughout the world). If you
are a do-it-yourselfer and would like to build or contract someone to build your own
tiny house using storage containers you can go to their site and pick out the container
you would like to use.
The prices vary based on the condition of the container, the amount of times it
was used in shipping, whether they have a special deal going, your location, etc.
(Note: they have a depot in Kansas City, Missouri with some great deals).
