tiny-house-builders-horizontal-headerWith so many individuals and companies building tiny houses, how are you supposed to know who to choose?

Some tiny house builders can build and ship homes nationwide or send their design plans across the world. Other, smaller builders, focus on their region and work primarily with locals.

Choosing a Tiny House Builder

The thing is, a tiny house is more than just a “normal house that is small”. Tiny houses have their own unique challenges. Make sure your builder has experience with tiny houses. Whether it is a company that specializes in tiny houses or a local builder from your region, ask these specific questions:

  • Does the builder know advanced wall framing techniques that will minimize the lumber that goes into the structure, helping the house be as light and lean as possible?
  • How do they plan to address moisture problems in your particular climate?
  • How do they plan on properly sealing up and insulating a tiny house on a trailer?
  • How will they install all appliances and systems?
  • How do they plan to engineer the structure to withstand mobility or extreme weather?

Portland Alternative Houses’ Tiny Houses’ manual, Go House Go, is a terrific resource book for tiny house builders that includes all the irregularities and uniqueness of building a tiny house.

Tiny House Shells

With full-service tiny house builders, you pay for their expertise designing furnishings, plumbing, and electrical systems for tiny homes. If you think you can handle that stuff yourself, consider a builder who focuses solely on erecting the structure of your tiny house. See Tiny House Kits & Shells for more information.

Local Builders

Finding a local builder for your tiny home is a way to support small business, invest in your local economy, and follow the mantra of “think globally, act locally.”

  • Local builders will know the zoning laws and coding for your region and can also adapt your house to your local climate.
  • Acquiring local materials is another way to invest in the local economy, as well as have a stronger connection to place. When materials are locally harvested they are usually done so in a more responsible and conscientious way.
  • More local builders might even offer the option of a work-trade with you and give the option of being involved, alongside them, in the construction of your home.

The design aesthetic of the 200 sq. ft. Cinderbox Dwelling was inspired by a dichotomy found in desert life. “Cacti, such as the saguaro, have rough exterior skins that can handle the intense environment while the interior plant flesh is often soft and wet, designed to hold moisture and the essentials for desert survival.” The design of the Cinderbox has a burnt, rough wood exterior and soft, clear wood interior, like the saguaro. Cinderbox Dwellings are custom designed by Damon Wake and Hunter Floyd, two architects that specialize in high-end home designs. They’re working on a tiny house on wheels, which they plan to make available in late 2016.
