Assembly

  • The Cube is engineered for ease-of-assembly that should be performed by at least two people with the technical knowledge and skills of a “handyman” defined as follows: A person skilled at a wide range of repairs, typically around the home. These tasks include some trade skills, building of small structures, repair and maintenance work, both interior and exterior.
  • The Cube contains a full kitchen and bathroom and requires a plumber and electrician to connect services to the fixtures. Depending on your skill sets, contractors may be required to install the foundation and the roofing, especially if you’re needing a guarantee.

Foundation options

  • For ease-of-construction and mobility, the Cube is designed to rest on five cast-in-place concrete piers, or “screw piles” (metal piles screwed into the ground by machine i.e.: www.technometalpost.com). These systems minimize disturbance to the environment and can be easily removed if necessary.
  • Conventional foundation systems can also be used such as concrete walls, concrete slabs, stone, and treated timbers.
  • Note that even though the Cube weighs much less than a conventional home, the approving authorities may still require a conventional foundation and possibly certification by a state, or province-licensed structural engineer. 

Shipping

  • NOMAD Cube comes flat-packed
  • Cube components are shipped in semi-trailers, flat-bed trucks, or shipping containers, depending on the distance they are traveling, the number of units being shipped, and what methods are available to unload at the destination.
  • When being shipped over land, components can be packed in a semi-trailer and unloaded by hand or palletized on a flat-bed truck and off-loaded by forklift, or truck-mounted crane.
  • Purchasers can also pick up components themselves from our warehouse in Vancouver, BC, Canada using their own rental truck to save shipping costs.
  • When shipping overseas, components will be packed into an ocean-going shipping container.
  • We can arrange shipping to most locations worldwide with the cost being added to the purchase price. Note that tariffs, duties, fees, and taxes may be applicable when crossing borders; however, there are currently no fees when shipping between Canada, USA, and Mexico under NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement).
  • For the purposes of estimating shipping costs, the Cube weighs approximately 5,000 lbs.
