What size homes do you offer?


Widths:
We currently build in 2 widths:
8'6" or 10' wide
Both are road legal and towable without a CDL.
You can use a 3/4 ton or 1 ton pickup to pull all of our homes.

Lengths:
16' 20' 24' 28' 32' and 36'
You can also add a Gooseneck trailer extention which adds 7' to each length above.

Height:
Most of our homes are 13'6" tall (measured from the ground) which is the maximum road legal height.
We also offer an 11' tall option in our Indigo Go Model




What kind of vehicle do I need to tow my tiny house?


We recommend that you first check the towing capacity of your vehicle to see how much weight it can handle.

A standard pickup like an F150 or C1500 might be able to pull a 16' home but it would have a hard time pulling a 20' home, even if it is within the towing capacity.

Remember, these homes have a lot of surface area and therefore wind resistance.
We highly recommend you use a diesel 3/4 ton truck (F250, C2500, or the equivalent) to pull our 20' & 24' houses. You'll need a 1 ton truck (F350, C3500, or equivalent) for the 28' and larger homes.

If you plan to move your house infrequently, it's more economical to rent these bigger pickups from Enterprise.
You can also hire companies to move your house.




Do you deliver?


Yes. Delivery within 50 miles of our location is inluded. We will deliver anywhere beyond the DFW metroplex for a fee of $3/ mile beyond the 50 mile radius. Utility hook-up service is not provided. If you need utilities run to your location, we can help you find a contractor to get the job done.




Can you go off-grid in an Indigo River Tiny Home?


Yes.

Our standard models are designed to be 100% grid-tied. They come with 50-Amp RV power connection, city water connection, and RV sewer line connection.
Off-grid options such as water holding tanks, solar power, rain catchment, alternative toilets & propane cooking are available as upgrades.




Where can I see an Indigo River Tiny Home?


We have Open Houses about once a month and we do private tours by appointment after a phone consultation.

We are a small custom builder so we don't have a big inventory of models.
Generally we have 3-4 homes on site in various stages of construction that visitors can tour to view the quality of our work.

Each time we finish a home we usualy have an event to show it off before the homeowner moves it to their new home.
Our EVENTS page has a calendar where you can RSVP for our upcoming Open Houses or Tiny House Shows and you can CONTACT US to set up a phone or zoom consultation to discuss if we are the right builder for you!




Where can I park my tiny house?


New places open up every month as cities and RV parks become more tiny-house -friendly. The short answer: you can park a tiny house on wheels (THOW) anywhere you can park an RV.

Our homes are legally considered Travel Trailers with a VIN and license tag, so they fall into the same category for parking.

There is a map of places to park in and around DFW at this site:
www.dfwtiny.com In Texas you can generally live in Tiny Homes on Wheels on private property outside of the city limits.
Exceptions are Austin, the city of Lake Dallas and other cities are currently revisijng their laws so we recommend reading the zoning laws for your property or hirihg a realtor to help determine legality on property you are considering purchsing.

For places to park close to the city limits:
