Each unit built by Nomadic Shack is custom in its own way. Yet, the process used creates guidelines to simplify and coordinate from the first meeting until keys are delivered. The following is to give you a platform from which to build your own package.

After a retainer is placed, we will meet at your site and create a plan for utilities and install. We will bring in local contractors to create our “game plan.” In continual communication, we are building your shack in our environmentally controlled warehouse; while they are putting in roads, water, electric and prepping a screw pile foundation according to the schematic provided by our architects.

Back in Minnesota, walls, roofs, electrical, plumbing are all underway as we create your personalized Shack. At the same time our designers are pulling furnishings, linens, dishes, and sourcing artwork if you have chosen our concierge service. All of these items are packed within the structure for delivery. Then is the “birthing” of your shack as it is lifted out of our warehouse and put on trucks to find its new home.

As we arrive on-site, our crews are extensive. Our home base team travels with us, we have local contractors licensed in your area for utility hook ups, and we have a second lift team on-site to place your home on the foundation awaiting us. We have sheet rockers, painters, a cleaning crew, and designers on-site. The beds are made, and the dishes are put in place. After approximately ten days, we hand you the keys to your shack!
