uld YOU build a flatpack house? Home in a box costs just £6,500. But is it really as easy to build as an IKEA bookcase? We gave one brave dad a week to try By Tom Rawstorne Published: 23:07 GMT, 29 January 2014 | Updated: 10:17 GMT, 30 January 2014 Like most British men, the sight of a screwdriver and something to assemble from a flatpack sends me into a competitive tailspin. While my chest puffs with machismo, my head is filled with doubts about my abilities. So when I heard that a British company has begun selling a flat-pack mini-house, which is said to be as easy to assemble as an Ikea bookcase, I couldn’t resist the challenge. Scroll down for video A British company has begun selling a flat-pack mini-house, which is said to be as easy to assemble as an Ikea bookcase - and Tom Rawstorne couldn¿t resist the challenge to build it At £6,500, they don’t come cheap, but the company which produces the wooden cabins — — says that homeowners have been snapping them up. Mark Burton, the company’s founder, says the traditional wooden buildings are being bought by people desperate to acquire more space without moving house. Tuesday

Charred Cabin by DRAA is a blackened timber shelter on stilts This charred timber cabin by Chilean studio DRAA is raised over a hillside on stilts to afford better views of the nearby mountains (+ slideshow). The Charred Cabin was designed by DRAA for a couple from Santiago who wanted a mountain hideout in a sparsely populated and historic region of the Chilean coastal range. The clients requested a building containing the minimum essential living spaces to keep the cost of the project down. With only a 15-square-metre footprint, the cabin contains a small kitchen, bathroom and living area on the lower level and a sleeping platform above. "To fit in a budget, the activities required to fulfil within the cabin were explicitly simple: a place to eat, sleep and read for two, everything else is to be offset outside," said the architects, who also recently completed a skiing retreat with a steeply pitched roof. "The prefab modules are arranged and proportioned in order to stand out from the steep terrain on stilts," the architects added. Project credits:

Radiant Floor Heat - A Review - MiniMotives I often get questions about my radiant floor heat and I realized I never reviewed it… So here we go! Was it ‘worth it’ – It certainly served its purpose as a learning project, I learned how to install and operate it, I have no regrets about adding the thermal mass in the floor (and the extra axle that came with accommodating that). For me this was a learning project and I have indeed learned! Now, Would I do it again? – Naw. I would not. The radiant heat is not the most efficient way to heat the tiny house. Frankly there are much cheaper ways to heat a tiny house. Now- Just because I am not a fan of the radiant floor doesn’t mean they don’t have merit. I guess in short I would not suggest trying to capture solar heat to heat your space unless you are on a true foundation, same with a hydro set-up. COOLING is another story and thermal mass has been SUPER helpful for that! Like this: Like Loading...

The Backyard Cottage Company - Tiny House News & Events Tiny house news and events Our Project House Build Update - A Tumbleweed Tiny House Company Cypress 20 The roof on our project house is looking great and we thought it was a timely opportunity to share some thoughts with you about the roof building experience. The front section of the roof and faux dormer certainly add curb appeal to Tumbleweed's Cypress design, but having worked through the process of putting it all together, it raised questions on whether the additional time taken to add redundant features and extra cost with purchasing required materials, versus topping your house with a standard 'gable roof', is actually worth the end result? From a space perspective, adding the sloping front roof reduces the overall room in the sleeping loft. Adding the slope and dormer, turns the gable roof into a type of 'intersecting roof', which itself means addition of 'hips' and 'valleys' to the roof structure and brings its own considerations to both function and cost.

They are a camper manufacturer based in Tampa, Florida so they’re RV certified which means you can get insurance for one of their tiny houses pretty easily (just like you would with an RV). This particular model was custom designed and built for a client of theirs in Florida. It’s 8′ x 24′ so approximately 192 square feet of space without including the sleeping loft.
