Models and Pricing

Zyl Vardos projects range in price from $45,000 to $96,000 (or more). Here are a few things to know about pricing:

  • You can order a longer or shorter structure if you like.
  • You may add or subtract options if you like. 
  • I can create an entirely new design. This usually costs a little extra, depending on the complexity.
  • The largest 'influence' on price is number of windows and complexity of the roof.
  • I ask 20% down to reserve a build spot.
  • Shipping is not included in the base price.
 

 

Unique Projects

Over the years, my workshop has refined its ability to build extremely well-designed, functional, and fluid structures. Several of the techniques we use were invented in our own shop. We prefer to create our windows, doors, cabinetry, fittings and roofing in-house. All these factors combine to gives us awesome creative ability, while at the same time, making the most safe, functional structures available. 

Here are a few examples of what we can build. These are not just daydreams - they can become real, buildable designs for minimal houses.

Again, I build many more designs than what you see here. Or, I can create an entirely new design.

Let your mind run free, give me a clear vision, and we can come up with a custom design together.

OR simply give me your needs and budget, and let my imagination (and carpenters) create the rest!
