The Bimify® Concept
Our industrial manufacturing process, established in France, allows us to design any type of construction such as a Tiny House, a carport, a garage, a villa or a building, thanks to the reliability of the process, the solidity of the materials used and the speed of delivery. Bimify uses a digitally controlled machine, managed by Building Information Modeling (BIM), which allows for dry construction (little waste on site), earthquake-resistant, cyclone-resistant and fireproof, this process is also insensitive to fungi, termites and other insects.
Maintenance-free, the galvanised steel used is 100% recyclable and offers a structure that is 6 times lighter than concrete, requiring few foundations. 30% less expensive than traditional steel and 3 times faster to build, galvanised steel complies with EUROCODES 3 and 8, DTU 32.3 of the CSTB as well as CE, BBC and RTA DOM standards. Compatible with all architectural styles, this construction process can be adapted from ground floor to ground floor+3. The French manufacture of our modular structures integrates BIM and robotic technologies.
Thus, the automation of production, based on digital BIM models, guarantees you zero construction errors on your work and rapid delivery. Indeed, with this process Bimify can produce one house per day. In addition to the light steel frame, our team offers two other types of frame: the timber frame based on the same principle, and the insulated brick panel.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the origin of the materials used by Tiny House Bimify?
We select materials of French origin as a priority. If we cannot find a product made in France, we select products made in Europe, for example the Vlemmix trailers (originating from the Netherlands) or the 1.7 W mini wood stove (originating from the UK). Of course, if you want a Tiny house 100% Made in France, we will offer you alternative products made in France.
What is the delivery time for a Tiny House?
The delivery time depends on the desired finishes and the deadlines of our suppliers (trailer, joinery, wood, etc…), it can vary from 2 to 8 months maximum. As soon as we receive the materials, the manufacturing time for a self-built Tiny house kit is 3 weeks, 1 month for an Out of Water/Out of Air and 2 months for a turnkey Tiny House.
Is there a housing tax to pay with a Tiny House?
The Tiny House is an alternative form of housing regulated by the ALUR law (in France). Recognised as a “mobile home”, it is not subject to local taxes or council tax. However, if your Tiny House is declared as fixed (installed more than 3 months on the land), then you will be concerned by these taxes and housing taxes according to your personal situation.
How to make a tiny house fixed?
Your Tiny House is recognised as fixed when it is installed for more than 3 months on the same site. It is then compulsory to make a Preliminary Declaration of Works (PD).
Where can we install a Tiny House?
- You can park your Tiny House for less than 3 months on a non-buildable plot of land in the pastille zone or on a buildable plot.
- You can also install your tiny house on a plot of land that can be built on for more than 3 months if you (or your builder) take the necessary steps with the town planning authorities by making a prior declaration of works.
Can we remove the Tiny House from its trailer?
- In theory this is possible because we install clamps around the entire periphery of the floor to hold the entire structure to the trailer.
- In theory this is possible because we install clamps around the entire periphery of the floor to hold the entire structure to the trailer. This allows the entire tiny house to be installed on a platform to make it completely removable and independent of the trailer. This solution is on average 65% more expensive than a standard Vlemmix trailer.
Do I need a specific permit to tow a tiny house?
To tow a Tiny house, it is necessary to have a BE licence (in France) and the GVW must not exceed 7000 kg (towing vehicle + tiny house).
What vehicle do you need to tow a Tiny House?
- Here is a non-exhaustive list of vehicles that can tow a tiny house:
- Ford Ranger simple cabine 4×4 / 2,2 Duratorq TDCI 160 ch;
- Ford Ranger SuperCab 4×4 from 2.2 Duratorq TDCI 160 hp;
- Ford Ranger Double Cab 4×4 from 2.2 Duratorq TDCI 160 hp;
- Land Rover Discovery D250 ou D300;
- Land Rover Range Rover / 3,0 l TDV6 HSE;
- Nissan Navara King-Cab;
- Nissan Pathfinder / 3,0 dCi LE Aut.;
- Volkswagen Amarok;
- Mitsubishi L200;
- Mitsubishi Pajero / 3.2 DI–D Professional Plus;
- Toyota Land Cruiser V8 / 4,5 D
What is the difference between a Tiny House and a caravan or mobile home?
The materials used and the finishes for a tiny house are closer to a traditional house than to other nomadic habitats: insulation, sanitary installations, kitchen, sleeping accommodation, etc. The walls of a Tiny vary from 170 mm to 250 mm thick while those of a caravan and/or mobile home vary between 20 mm and 45 mm.
Can you make your Tiny House 100% self-sufficient in water and electricity?
It is possible to make a tinyhouse self-sufficient in electricity. On the other hand, the layout to make it water self-sufficient is more restrictive in terms of weight and space, unless the small house is intended to be sedentary.
How does the sewage disposal system work in a Tiny House?
There are several solutions for wastewater. The most common is a connection to a septic tank or a sewage system. However, other more ecological systems exist, such as a phytodepuration system.
Do we have to put a dry toilet in a Tiny House?
No, this is not an obligation but rather an ecological choice. Indeed, dry toilets allow you to save more than 30% on your annual water consumption.
