Congrats on taking the first step in moving forward to building your own AYFRAYM.

These Builders will help you from start to finish and have been vetted by our team to ensure you’re working with the right people with the same goals clearly aligned. Don’t have land yet? No problem.

Once your authentic AYFRAYM has been completed. You’re free to promote it as a true AYFRAYM. If you decide to list it on Airbnb or similar booking sites, you have permission to list it using ‘AYFRAYM’ in the title, as it’s been verified. Those that don’t build through our Preferred Builder Network have not built a verified AYFRAYM, therefore they cannot claim such and reap the rewards for doing so.

How much does an AYFRAYM cost? 

The simple answer is, most likely between $250k-$350k of our team of Preferred Builders manages the build. The more accurate answer is, we won’t know until we understand all the variables we’re dealing with from the location, to all the land nuances, to your utilities and other crucial factors. This is why it’s important that we connect you to a local Builder that can answer these questions more in-depth for you.

How long does it take from start to finish?

Once we start the actual build on the structure after prepping the lot, it won’t take more than 3-6 months to complete the construction!

What do I need to have on my land?

You need to decide whether your build will be on-grid or off grid. If on-grid, it’s good to have access to all of the utilities nearby. Either already established on the property itself or at the property line. Water, Power & Sewer. If you’re off-grid , you need to make sure you have access to water either through a well or via a large cistern that can hold water for you. You will also need a septic tank for your black and grey water. If you’re going to be using solar, do some research on sunlight in the area to ensure you will have enough sustainable energy to live off of.

How much space do I need to build an AYFRAYM?

The total footprint of the AYFRAYM with the deck is 32′ x 60′. Without the deck it’s roughly 30′ x 44′. You will need to plan for a driveway to the AYFRAYM and plan for landscaping around the structure as well. So make sure to take these things into consideration when thinking about space.

What does the 30 year warranty cover?

Anything structural, mainly having to do with the foundation, framing, floor joists and the walls. If a board cracks or the floor starts to sag, it would be covered under the warranty. Most of the products and materials used within the AYFRAYM will also come with their own individual warranties as well.

What is the tiny home pad that comes with the build?

We have tiny home customers that are constantly looking for unique places to live and stay. Our tiny homes are built like an RV using a 50amp receptacle, a 3″ RV drain and a city water hose connection. We can offset the monthly cost of your loan by allowing our customers to stay on your property for an average of around $300-$500 per spot. So having this tiny home pad could be a great future investment.

What type of foundation can this be built on?

We can build this on slab on-grade, pier and beam or pier and beam with a crawlspace. Each have positives and negatives but the Builder you work with will have strong recommendations for you based on the climate you live in and the soil on your land.

What is the R value of the insulation? 

We don’t use a set R value as the R value you use in Ottawa, Canada will differ greatly from the R value in San Diego. Your Builder Partner you work with knows your climate and will ensure that the proper insulation is taken into consideration and used in your AYFRAYM build.

Does the AYFRAYM only come in one-size and one floorplan?

Yes.
