10'x12' with loft...
« on: November 01, 2009, 09:08:35 PM »
This is a tiny home I've been building...




It rests on a raised cinderblock foundation which made it easy to install the utilities...




It has everything a regular home has: toilet, shower, sink, stove refrigerator, heater with remote solid state wall thermostat, bath ventilation fan and ceiling heater.



These pics are old, so I'll post some updated ones soon. And sorry, I have no plans as it just evolved as it was being built.

 w*   Feel free to post as many images as you can. We all love to see the details.
Just because something has been done and has not failed, doesn’t mean it is good design.

If you didn't have the time or money to do it right in the first place, when will you get the time and money to fix it?

Thanks for the welcome!

It's not much farther along due to being busy at work... but the floors are tiled and the kitchen unit is in.


Got some more drywall on...







It has a front door now...







The kitchen unit is made by Acme, (of roadrunner fame!) and incorporated sink, stove and refrigerator all in one. My wife and I joke that you can sit on the toilet and cook dinner at the same time! :D

Thanks...
Freedom... yes. My 88 year old Mom came to live with us, so the tiny house is for her. My wife and I already built our own 1,100 square foot house...

We have a $15,000 budget for the tiny house.
 
So far, this is the cost break down:
 
Foundation: $1,000
Framed roofed painted windowed TuffShed shell: $4,200,
Interior framing for loft and stairs $650,
Electrical $760,
Plumbing: $1,300,
Shower unit: $810,
Kitchen unit $1,700,
Front door and roof skylight $500,
Insulation $210,
Drywall $450

TuffShed is shop built standard 2x4 construction building that is assembled painted roofed and windowed on the site completely in just ONE day!

No problem... we installed the tinyhouse doorknob so it locks from the outside... ;)

Hey, noticed your Gadsden avatar... would you happen to belong to the TEA Party?

 Hilarious!

 I've been using the Gadsden flag avatar here and there since 9/11. No affiliation with the tea partiers.

 Thanks. Haven't laughed so hard in a long time.

 Seeya around.

This is a beautiful little home. I love the Dutch roof and deceptively roomy!

Thanks...

It does feel roomy with a total of 7 windows... one in every wall, the door, upstairs on two ends, and a skylight in the ceiling.

Sorry, it's been a while since I posted. Business got busy and that took priority. The tiny house is almost move in ready!













The "tool space" with the blue drawers is the bed area.


Still to go is the shower stall kit, and the underground main electric line.... and we're still within the $15,000 budget for the complete living unit project.
