Our Process is Simple

At Honomobo we simplify the build process. Our team will work with you through the process from our initial feasibility consultation through to handing you the keys to your new Honomobo every step of the way.


Step 1 -  Feasibility Consultation (2 Options Available)

The first step in order to see if a Honomobo will work for you and your property is to start a feasibility assessment.

  • OPTION 1 (NO SITE VISIT)

    • If you feel confident that your property will not have any issues in regards to a flatbed truck (up to 72ft in length) and crane accessing within 30ft of the desired building location, we suggest going with a No Site Visit - Feasibility Assessment.

    • Below is a list of what is included:

      • Phone Consultation with our inside sales team

      • Zoning Verification

      • Upgrade Option Pricing

      • Budgetary Estimate for the Honomobo, shipping, crane work and on-site installation

      • Design proposal to move onto Step 2

      • Cost of this is $495

  • OPTION 2 (SITE VISIT)

    • If you are uncertain that your property will not have any issues in regards to a flatbed truck (up to 72ft in length) and crane accessing within 30ft of the desired building location, we suggest going with a Site Visit - Feasibility Assessment.

    • Below is a list of what is included:

      • Phone Consultation with our inside sales team

      • Site Visit by Honomobo to determine overhead crane clearance and truck accessibility

      • Review building location, orientation, foundation options and site-specific requirements

      • Zoning Verification

      • Upgrade Option Pricing

      • Budgetary Estimate

      • Design proposal to move onto Step 2

      • Cost is quoted per project and location dependent

Step 2 - Design and Engineering

Once the design proposal is signed in step 1 we will provide you with the following 

  • SCHEMATIC DESIGN

    • 3D visual of your home where you can make revisions or approve and move onto the drawings

  • DP SET OF DRAWINGS

    • Site plan, floorplans, elevations, sections, and initial foundation design.

    • First draft of architectural set of drawings. Some jurisdictions allow this as a Development Permit (planning) approval set

  • ENGINEERING (SOME OR ALL OF THESE SCOPES MAY BE NEEDED DEPENDING ON THE JURISDICTION)

    • Structural Foundation design

    • Honomobo overstamp

    • Energy calculations

    • Civil Engineering

    • Septic design

    • Soil report

Step 3 - 5% Reservation Deposit *Optional*

  • This deposit, 5% of the Honomobo price, will hold a production spot and pricing for 6 months from time of payment. This deposit is refundable less a 10% fee if your permits are denied or you decide not to move forward. The remaining Construction Deposit is due 75 days from the production start date.

Step 4: Permit Submittals

  • Once all architectural, engineering and certification documentation is complete, all drawings and accompanying documentation are compiled and can be submitted for Building Permits.

Step 5: 40% Construction Down Payment

  • The 40% Manufacturing Down Payment is due 75 days prior to manufacturing start date.

Step 6: Production and 30% Progress Payment – Site Work Starts

  • At key stages of construction, we will provide updates and pictures of your Honomobo.

  • Your local contractor begins site preparation and foundation work.

  • The 30% manufacturing progress payment is due upon completion of the structural frame and prior to the start of: Module complexing, Mechanical/Electrical/Plumbing rough-in, insulation, drywall, paint and interior finishing.

Step 7: Completion of your Honomobo and 30% payment

  • Upon completion of your Honomobo home in the factory, the final 30% of the unit is due.

  • 10% of this payment will be held in a separate bank account and will be released upon a walk through sign off by the customer after installation onsite, less any deficiencies identified.

Step 8: 100% Shipping, crane and installation payment

  • 30 days prior to the scheduled shipping date, we will re-quote and provide you with the updated shipping, crane and installation pricing

  • Payment is due 15 days prior to the scheduled shipping date

Step 9: Delivery and Onsite Installation

  • Once we confirm that your site is ready to receive your Honomobo, we then book the crane, trucks and send the Honomobo installation team to your site.

  • Once onsite, the Honomobo Installation Team coordinates with the Crane Operator to land the individual modules onto the foundation and complete the Honomobo installation (Approximately 7 days depending on the Honomobo model and scope of work).

  • Site utilities are then connected to the home once the modules have landed and have been welded to the foundation.

  • Final walkthrough and keys given to you

Step 10: Decks, railings, stairs etc. are completed by your contractor

Step 11: Move into your Honomobo
