We ship your kit to your build location, but Smiling Woods does not offer contracting or labor. We will provide a Build Manual and will answer any questions you or your contractor may have while assembling the kit. In some instances, your designer may be available for on-site consulting and project management. Our team can provide information on contractors in your area with familiarity in building Smiling Woods Yurts.
We can design your kit to fit any foundation (piers, perimeter, slab, and more). Different areas require different foundations, so our designers and engineering partners will work with you to design the best foundation for your yurt.
Unfortunately, we do not offer financing, but are happy to connect you with partners who are familiar with financing round homes. Most of our customers use a Construction Loan from a trusted lender to acquire financing (if this will be your primary home), or a HELOC (for second homes). We will provide sample engineering plans to secure this loan.
We will work with you to modify the structure to prepare for your utility connections. However, insulation, electrical, and plumbing trades or materials are not included in a Smiling Woods kit.
We provide detailed plans that outline your desired layout. However, any interior walls, drywall, hardwood flooring, cabinetry, etc. are not included in a Smiling Woods kit. But our designers can provide detailed materials lists and interior design for you or your contractor.
