Unique designDo you need something more personal and tailored to your own lifestyle? Our engineers are open to any suggestion, from a wide variety of creative design and construction solutions.
Our methods for adapting iHouse to your own personal requirements are an harmonized combination between standardized designs and custom constructions. They are always manufactured with respect towards the environment and the local architecture.
In such cases, both the timelines, as well as the final costs may vary, but the possibilities are vast. The additional cost for a special design and manufacture of an iHouse usually ranges at a 15% on the value of a standard iHouse construction. The final charges are calculated on case by case basis, for the extra production costs resulting from the conversions.
Additional servicesThe additional design services are required for adjustments that are related to special static housing characteristics, in areas with high winds, high snowfalls, high seismic activity or other specific local requirements.
We can also undertake the site preparation for the installation of the iHouse, the design of the exterior areas, the garage and any other additional storage spaces.
Site visits are not necessary, but they are proven to be valuable in optimizing the siting and layout of your project. The site visits are priced on a daily bases, plus the travel expenses, where applicable.
