Little Cottage Company FAQ

What is included in a pre-cut kit? 

Our Little Cottage Company pre-cut kits include all necessary building materials cut to precise measurements before they are delivered. Each component is labeled, primed, and ready to assemble. No additional cutting is required! These DIY kits include all hardware and a detailed picture manual, making the assembly process simple. The customer is responsible for providing shingles, drip edge, and paint.

What is the typical assembly time for a kit?

In general, our kits can be assembled by 2 adults in 2 days time or less, depending on the size of the unit. This may not include shingling and painting. However, please note that individual assembly times may vary based on experience and skill level.

How will my kit be delivered?

When you purchase a kit, it will arrive on a securely packaged pallet via common carrier. The pieces on the pallet will weigh anywhere from 25 to 60 pounds each (some larger kits, especially greenhouse panels, may weigh up to 95 lbs each). Depending on the size of the building, there may be more than one pallet. 

How long do deliveries take?

Kits: Many of our kits are made to order. Depending on the type of unit, most kits will arrive within 3-4 weeks of placing the order.

What kind of foundation is required?

Ensuring a level foundation is crucial for the proper installation and stability of our structures. We recommend using crushed stone 3-4” thick, a patio block, or a concrete pad to form a base. When preparing a base, you should make the base one foot wider on all sides of the unit. 

What is drip edge?

Drip edge is an essential component in roofing systems which plays a crucial role in protecting your structure from potential water damage. Properly installed drip edge contributes to the overall longevity and durability to your building. Drip edge is an aluminum piece that will be installed along the roof’s edges. The shingles will then be placed over top of the drip edge. This can easily be purchased at your local home improvement store.

Is a building permit required?

If it is necessary to obtain a building permit or cross a neighboring property, it is the buyer’s responsibility to obtain a neighbor’s permission of the necessary permit prior to delivery.
