Interview with Designer and Builder of this Tiny House
Q: What’s the story behind your tiny house?
It was built to support my wife and I.
Throughout our planning, we soon realized that there is a need for this type of thing here in New Jersey and on the east coast.
We also wanted a queen sized bed and no loft. So we decided on a murphy bed.
So, during our planning phase, we decided to infuse more of an open/modern feel to our house so that we wouldn’t feel cramped or anything.
Q: What’s the size of your tiny home?
The trailer is 21′ long and we have 8′ ceilings that pitch 10′ high.
Q: How much does it weigh?
We aren’t sure of the weight but our trailer does have 10,000 lb. axles and according to our current calculations, we aren’t very close to that number.
Q: Did you buy it, hire a builder, or do it yourselves?
We built everything ourselves.
We were lucky to have my father’s supervision and expertise since he’s a retired contractor out of New York.
We did, however, hire licensed electricians and plumbers to make sure everything was up to normal code.
Q: How much did it cost to build?
A: It cost about $9,000 to build.
Thanks Marcos Ribeiro for sharing your tiny house with us and answering some of our questions!
