Frequently Asked Questions

Customers can range based on their lifestyle and family dynamics. Some tiny home customers are young couples between 25-35, virtual professionals or single travelers between 45-60 with an empty nest.
Yes, we have customers who have purchased a tiny home to use as an AirBNB. Typically, about 25% of our sales are for business purposes. The majority are used as tiny homes or tiny house RV rentals. In addition to that, tiny houses can be utilized as backyard ADUs, granny flats or accessible dwelling units, traveling offices, retail displays, mobile pop-ups and traveling kitchens.

The landscape is changing. Where we’d used to see tiny homes purchased as a vacation home, guest home, or second home, we are now seeing a shift of how tiny homes are used.

As communities are being built with more outdoor communal spaces in mind, tiny homes are an excellent example of this. Over the past two years, we’ve seen a shift of priorities and people are placing a higher value on the freedom of movement and building a life around family and experience over building a life around work and a job.

Typically they stay in a backyard as a guest or ADU, accessible dwelling unit or on a piece of property. Others are placed in RV Parks or Tiny House Communities.

Yes, We are a NOAH Certified builder. Prairieland Tiny Homes are inspected and certified by NOAH, the National Organization for Alternative Housing.

Each NOAH RDI Certified Structure meets safety, structural, and energy efficiency standards. NOAH RDI Home Inspection and Certification provides the opportunity to build with integrity, and access a digitized home inspection for future use.

ANSI 119.5 covers:
1. Fuel Systems and Equipment
2. Health, Fire and Life Safety
3. Plumbing Systems and
4. Construction Requirements.

NFPA 70 (National Electric Code) is used for the electrical with special attention to Article 551 and 552 (RVs and PMRVs).
*Dielectric tests are required (NEC551and 552) prior to NOAH certificate and seal being issued*

According to TinyHouse.com, “NOAH is another great certification to look for. Just like RVIA, this Organization ensures that the small house is built to the predetermined standards set by trusted professionals, builders and inspectors.

The NOAH Certification incorporates safety, structure, and energy efficiency standards that are widely used in the RV, Tiny Home, and Residential industries. They also have a great resource for DIY builders which allows them to inspect and certify a tiny house that is being built by an individual DIYer.”

We only build Tiny House RVs on wheels. RV codes allow a tiny house to be built up to 399 square feet. The largest tiny home we build is 399 square feet, not including the loft areas.

We also build backyard studios, ADUs, Accessible Dwelling Units. We have a few different models from which you can customize or you can bring your own design. Contact us for more details.


A few people will pay cash for a tiny home, but most finance their purchase. There are 3 types of tiny house loans; tiny house RV loans, traditional RV loans, and personal loans. Tiny House RV loans have rates from 6.5% – 12%, and terms that range from 15-25 years and can be the easiest to qualify for. Traditional RV loans are the same you find buying a Winnebago.

The rates are great, but the term is usually 10-15 years and they can be harder to qualify for. Personal loans are typically used when buying a non-certified tiny house and have rates from 10%-16% and terms from 5-10 years.
