WeeHomes are technically tiny homes, but they have a “big home” feel thanks to the smart use of space and floor-to-ceiling glass. Open kitchens and built-in cabinetry help open the space to make it feel bigger.
Alchemy Architects offers several versions of the WeeHouse:
1 modular unit: 300-800 square feet
2 units: 1200-1600 square feet
3 units: 1200-2000 square feet
4 units: 1800-2400 square feet
Units can be stacked or arranged in a variety of ways to create a truly customized home.
All WeeHomes come 80%-90% complete.
The WeeHouse is designed to meet International Building Code (IBC) and International Residential Code (IRC) standards. In most cases, WeeHomes are stronger than site-built structures.
All homes are:
Completely insulated with 2×6 walls and 12” floor trusses for ceilings and floors
Outfitted with vented roofs
Nominal R values are as follows:
All WeeHomes have steel frames for even greater durability.
Virtually every aspect of the WeeHouse can be customized to your liking, including:
Cabinets: Matte White, Ebonized Oak, Walnut, or White Oak
Door Hardware: Silicone/Leather, Stainless Steel, Satin Nickel, etc.
Countertops: Quartz, White Laminate + Oak, or Natural Recycled Paper Composites
Hardwood Flooring: Whitewashed Oak, Warehouse, Ebonized Oak, Driftwood, Smoked Oak and Aged Saddle
Interior: 2-panel wood doors; dimmable LED lighting
Exterior: Steel cable railing, steel window shrouds, eaves and overhangs, steel or barn siding
Kitchens are outfitted with stainless steel appliances, while bathroom fixtures are minimalistic.
A WeeHouse takes 9-12 months to complete, depending on the complexity of the site work and permit approvals.
WeeHouse standard pricing includes all interior electric, plumbing, cabinetry, hardwood flooring, windows, doors and other designer-chosen finishes. Typically, Alchemy also budgets for all desired appliances and will provide those that are built-in.
Just like with any other prefab home, the ultimate cost will vary. But Alchemy Architects does provide some ballpark estimates for their WeeHouse.
