Hello Fellow Tiny House Enthusiasts,

As the tiny house movement sweeps the world, we want to provide a tool that will help people build their own tiny houses.

We at Nelson Tiny Houses have created this Kickstarter campaign to help us produce a “How to Build Your Own Tiny House” video guide showing people everything they need to know about building a tiny house – down to the tiniest detail.  No matter if you have no experience or years of it, you will find these videos extremely helpful in making your tiny house dreams become a reality.

The series will include 15 episodes all between 30-45 minutes long.

Ep. 1  Tools and Safety

Ep. 2 Design and Layout (and using reclaimed material)

Ep. 3 Trailers and Foundations

Ep. 4 Framing and Sheathing

Ep. 5 Doors and Windows

Ep. 6 Siding, Flashing, and Roofing

Ep  7 Electricity and Solar

Ep. 8 Plumbing and Gas

Ep. 9 Insulation and Vapor barrier

Ep. 10 Drywall and Tongue&Groove (Choices for interior walls)

Ep. 11 Trim and Flooring

Ep. 15  Wrapping things up (inc. Bylaws and Codes)

The series will follow us as we build a tiny house based on our Winter Wonderland house (watch video below). However, we will show you other projects in these videos so that in the end, you will be able to better build any style house you desire.

    I would like a summary video (this could be done after you have launched your project) that gives examples of problems you have seen, and how you fixed them (there are lots of tiny homes out there that have not been built to anything resembling CODE), and what you have learned that DIYers find the most challenging (like remembering to leave space for utilities like water storage and electrical and plumbing access, i would guess from my own designs and also remodeling projects)

    How much is the video series once you meet your Kickstarter costs? If we pay early now, how much will it be, and how long will it be until the video series is done? Thank you. [email protected]

    My husband and I are building a tiny house on a 26 ft RV trailer. Everyone in Tennessee who is planning to build on a used trailer, it is considered a rebuild and must be inspected before it can be licensed. We looked up all the codes and are building accordingly. It takes longer, but it is better in the long run to find out the law and follow it. Especially if you want to eventually put it on the road. Happy Building, everyone.
