In this post I get to show you the basics of how to build a tiny house on wheels.
This is a tiny home on a trailer with a deck built right over the tongue of the trailer (a feature that I really like).
Ever Wonder How to Build a Tiny House?
It all begins with design. In this case the team at Brevard Tiny House Company develops a scale model to work with their clients and better meet their needs. Check it out below.
If you ever wonder how these tiny houses are built from the trailer to the framing then you’ll enjoy getting to see it all come to life below:
One of the First Steps: Develop a Model of Client’s Design
Then Adjustments Are Made Here for the Client First
Once the design part is settled it’s time to start the build.
Step 1: Custom trailer was ordered
Add Flashing to Protect the House
This metal flashing prevents critters from getting in and also protects your home when it’s being towed on the road.
Add your first layer subfloor and start floor framing
Add insulation to the floors. Then bolt the trailer to the floor and wall frames to secure everything (very important).
Start Framing your Walls
When You’re Done Framing Sheath the Frame and Cut Windows Out
Then Begin Carefully Doing your Roof Framing
Sheath the Roof
Seal the Roof
Add your choice of Housewrap
Frame the Interior Rooms
Add Loft Beams
Wire Electric and Plumbing
Install Metal Roofing
Tongue Turned into Deck with Built In Hidden Storage
