Tiny Houses | Tiny Home Builders What is a tiny house? A tiny house is a small house that is sized such that it can fit on a trailer. In most areas this means that it can’t be bigger than 8 feet 6 inches wide, 13 feet 6 inches tall, and 40 feet long. The houses are built on trailers since they are too small to be allowed as permanent structures according to most local code enforcement agencies. Why would I live in a tiny house? For many, the dream of owning their own house is only that, a dream. Another advantage of tiny houses is gained time. Another advantage is that the houses can be moved. Finally, one last reason to living in a tiny house is conservation. Why wouldn’t I just buy an RV? RV’s are great for travel, but not so great to live in. Have more questions? Looking for a house for your dog or maybe just a small project to get you started, take a look at our modernDog dog house.

How is it insulated? We use spray foam insulation (R-20) so that our Tiny House RVs exceed the minimum code requirements by 200%. Is financing available? Yes. Can I get it delivered? Tumbleweed Tiny House RVs can be delivered right to your door anywhere in the United States.

Tiny House Building Checklist On this page I hope to outline the majority of the steps that I have taken to build my Tiny House to help other people who are building Tiny Houses. It will also serve as a working list for myself during the building process. This list is really only for a high level view of how to build a Tiny House, I will detail in depth everything on this page: Ryan’s Tiny House as I complete each aspect of the build.

Tiny Home Builders | Builder of high quality custom tiny houses 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? 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...

Luxury Lotus Tent: Yurt-Like Shelter Packs Into Duffle Bag Unless you’re the hardcore backpacking type, chances are you’ve had a camping experience in a squat, flimsy tent that left you wishing for the comfort of your bed and a shelter that’s at least tall enough to stand up in. Minimalist tents have their time and place, but sometimes you want a shelter that offers more room – maybe even enough room to hold a yoga class or host a dinner party. But it still has to be easy to transport and set up. If you think that’s asking for too much, check this out. Not only is the Lotus Belle big enough for the aforementioned activities, you can fit entire bedrooms inside, including queen-sized beds, rugs, dressers and whatever else you can dream up (although those items, of course, are going to affect the portability factor.) The luxury tent has a highly distinctive look that definitely stands out from the crowds when it’s set up at festivals and campgrounds, reminiscent of an inflatable structure.

Uncut Tiny House Realized As a result of this exploration we now know that a tiny house that could be built without a saw. The direction I went in is just one way to go too – and I’m certain there are many many more. In fact several folks have commented and contacted me directly suggesting some great improvements. I was thinking of running a little design competition to see how many people we could inspire to jump onto this idea – but this whole process sparked a new idea that’s even better. You see when you choose to avoid using a saw in your design, you end up making compromises that create another kind of waste – the use excess material in the structure. Making cuts for a perfect fit means the house only ends up with just the right amount of material, albeit with some discarded waste lumber. So what if we took the learnings from the Uncut Tiny House and applied them to a No Waste Tiny House. But I digress… Let me show you this version of the Uncut Tiny House. Continue to see the assembly process and details.
