Athens Park Homes are

"Green" certified.

This means that every park home will have a label showing that it has been certified green. This will assure you that your new tiny home is built as energy-efficient and environmentally friendly as possible. You can even make your new tiny home more green by adding any green-friendly options including a solar energy system and a tankless water heater. Tiny Home Austin has worked hard to achieve our green certification because we truly care about our environment and saving you money.

Difference between park model RVs and "tiny homes."

Talk of “tiny homes” has captured the attention of many people. Design considerations illustrated in television programs and on websites might evoke park model RVs, but there are several key differences:

  • Some “Tiny homes” aren’t actually homes. Some are built to the code requirements for travel trailers, if they’re built to any codes at all. Athens Park Model RVs are all built to the rigorous ANSI-A119.5 code for park model RVs.

  • Park model RVs can be housed on private rural property in most states, as well as on most RV campgrounds and in resorts around the country. Many RV campgrounds and resorts won’t accept “tiny homes” because there’s no set standard for quality and safety.

  • The RVIA park model RV label you’ll find by the front door of our park models makes them easy to finance and insure.

Full-sized amenities:

Park Model RVs offer full-sized amenities such as kitchens and baths, so you don't have to compromise on essential comforts.
