  • 4 min read

If you are planning to build your tiny home and have decided to make your dream a reality, you will want to do the most research possible before you start. You can learn a lot from those who’ve already built their tiny house. They have learned from their mistakes and successes. You can also learn a lot from contractors and tiny house builders, who have been doing their job for a long time and built many different types of tiny houses. You’ll also want to study floor plans and small house designs to determine what will work best for your family.

If you keep energy efficiency in mind, you can save money on your tiny house. The overall design of your tiny house will reflect its energy efficiency. The larger the surface area, the more expensive the heating will be. When building a tiny home, it is best to start from the bottom up. Building outwards will always be more expensive. Heat rises and if you have a second floor, the upper chambers of your home will be heated by lower heat sources. It’s something to keep in mind when you choose your tiny house design.

Keep your logs as dry as possible before building. It’s best to use logs that have been allowed to dry for a long time. This is why repurposed wood is a great option because it has had years to completely dry. Logs that have a high moisture content will require more time to dry. As the water evaporates off of green or wet wood, the logs shrink. If you use green logs to build a house, they will re-set causing structural damage. Then you’ll need start again.

If you are looking for the best wood to build your tiny house, then you should choose wood with a moisture content between 12 and 15 percent. Include a roof with a long overhang and covered porches into your cabin design. These features protect your logs against excess moisture after you have built your home and help to keep it weatherproof. Keep your finished tiny home dry by paying attention to landscaping and keeping water sprinklers a safe distance from the house. These are just some tips to get you going.

It is an adventure to build a tiny house. If you do it the right way – by taking your time and saving money – and gleaning all the information you can before starting, you’ll get the best possible results.
