Are you getting ready to buy your very own tiny house? Now comes the hard part – finding a reputable tiny house builder.

We at PAD Tiny Houses have heard from a number of people lately who bought tiny homes from professional builders, and now need significant repairs within the first year of living. It’s disappointing, but avoidable, so we asked an expert how to have a good tiny house buying experience.

When Derin Williams from Shelter Wise started building custom tiny homes in 2012, he was among the first tiny house builders in the country. Shelter Wise no longer builds custom homes, but does still offer their popular Hikari Box and Cider Box Tiny Houses, and Derin shares his unique expertise on tiny house design and construction through local and online consulting. With years of experience seeing how his own homes and the homes of others have stood the test of time, here are some of Derin’s tips for buying a tiny house.

Bunk Box Modern Tiny House on Wheels

The Bunk Box Tiny House from Shelter Wise is a unique, modern design that leaves the wall framing and electrical exposed on the interior. This creates a valuable, seven extra inches of interior space that residents can use, see, and feel. With a flat roof and exposed ceiling framing, the sleeping loft offers extra height and increased functional space. Two skylights, six windows, and an optional second door bring the outside in and increase the feeling of spaciousness. Although it’s built on a 16 foot trailer, the Bunk Box lives as big as a 20 foot house.

Shelter Wise partner PAD Tiny Houses is offering a launch-only, one week sale on the new Bunk Box Tiny House Plans, so check them out ASAP! Check out the pictures and learn more about the design below!
