Whether you're looking for a fully customized solution or a quick setup with a pre-designed model, we have options to suit every need and timeline. Let's dive deeper into the pros and cons of custom tiny homes on wheels versus model tiny homes on wheels, highlighting our unique services along the way.

  1. Fully Personalized Design: As primarily a custom builder, Movable Roots specializes in creating homes that are tailored to the individual needs of our clients. Our custom design process starts from scratch, ensuring that every aspect of your home, from layout to materials, is aligned with your preferences and lifestyle requirements.

  2. Choice and Quality of Materials: With a custom tiny home, you select every material, ensuring your home is built to your standards of durability, aesthetics, and environmental friendliness. This level of customization extends to the interior finishes and can cater to specific health considerations, like allergies.

  3. Optimized Space Utilization: Every inch of your home will be designed for maximum functionality, incorporating innovative storage solutions and multi-functional furniture that are exactly suited to your possessions and daily routines.


  1. Higher Investment: The bespoke nature of a custom tiny home often comes with a higher price tag due to the personalized design and material selection.

  2. Extended Timeline: The process from design through to completion is longer with a custom build, as every detail is crafted to your specifications.

  3. Involvement in Project Management: Custom builds require more decision-making and involvement in the construction process, which might be challenging for those unfamiliar with building and design.

  1. Cost-Effective Solutions: Our model tiny homes, including the popular Jojo Bean Models, are designed to offer quality living solutions at a more accessible price point. These homes are built based on successful past designs and can be duplicated with efficiency.

  2. Faster Completion: Choosing from one of our existing models or past custom builds can significantly reduce the waiting period. These homes are pre-designed, which speeds up the production and delivery process.

  3. Ease of Purchase: Opting for a model tiny home simplifies the buying process. With fewer decisions to make and less time spent on design, you can make your tiny house dream a reality much quicker.


  1. Limited Customization: While our models offer some customization options, they are inherently less flexible than a fully custom design. You may need to compromise on some features or aesthetics.

  2. Standardized Features: Model homes tend to have more generic features and may not include the unique characteristics that a custom home would have, which can be less appealing to those seeking a one-of-a-kind home.

  3. Potential Depreciation: Pre-designed models may not retain their value as well as custom homes, especially if your chosen design becomes less popular over time.
