"We absolutely loved our experience with Indigo River Tiny Homes! Peter, his family and his employees are wonderful. We got everything we asked for and they made themselves available to help us with settling into our tiny home and answering the numerous questions we had after we took delivery. We had a slight issue with our mini split dripping water and Peter quickly sent an A/C tech out to us who fixed the issue. Thank you Indigo River!" - Janessa H.

Let the banks know there is a demand for Tiny Home Loans!

For Tiny Homes on Wheels:
Our THOWs are registered with your state of residence as a travel trailer with a license place and VIN
so RV Loans & personal loans from your favorite bank or credit union should (in theory) work.


Ask your bank about a Personal Loan or an RV Loan for

a "luxury travel trailer" with pricing similar to an AirStream.


For a Modular Tiny Home delivered on skids & placed on a permanent foundation:

Other products like Home Equity Loans or Manufactured Home Loans could work.
