The Tiny House Is Under Construction

The tiny house is under construction!

Here’s the nearly completed design for my first tiny house build. I came up with most of it, with help from my partner, Erica, who is also building a tiny house. My friend, architect John Fitzpatrick, set it all up in CAD, including the framing plan. Great to have real plans to work from. I bought the 26′ trailer from Iron Eagle Trailers in Gresham, Oregon.

This is getting close to finished; just details left.

Here’s a New York Times article about Dee Williams’ tiny house. With just 84 square feet, this one is really tiny. It’s well designed and beautifully crafted, and a couple photovoltaic panels provide her electricity. She has it parked on a friend’s lot, which seems to be the major issue with tiny houses—where do you put it?

Is This the Best Tiny House Design?

Wow, this is a well-conceived and constructed tiny house! No surprise that yacht construction was an inspiration for design and materials. This home crams more useable features into the space than any other tiny home I’ve seen. So is this the best tiny house design?
