In Which We All Learn About Construction

Do you know when we first learned the basics about construction? It might sound silly to admit this, but it was not until we had a sun room added onto our home. As the construction workers made plans, sourced materials, and then put up the structure, we were sure to ask a lot of questions and to observe the actions they took. And you know what? We were hooked! From that point on, it has been one of our goals to learn more about construction and contractors. Part of our learning journey has been to create this website and share it with you.


Tiny Homes — Great Building Advice To Utilize

Tiny homes have gained a lot of popularity over the years. People who want to downsize and try out simple living love them. If you plan to build your very own, here are some construction tips that can make you pleased with the results. 

Figure Out Square Footage Totals Early On 

Perhaps the most important aspect of a tiny home is its size. It will be much smaller than a traditional single-family home or condo, and you need to find dimensions that make the most sense for you. 

Start out looking at tiny home models in person. You can see how big different units are and what can work long-term. During these tours, think about home activities you plan to stay involved in and the number of people living with you. It might be a good idea to live in tiny home rentals that vary in size to see what will and won't work as far as interior space.

Take Your Time Designing a Patio

Since you may not have a lot of room inside a tiny home, you should design a patio on the outside. You can then take advantage of the outdoor space provided and enjoy nature any time you want.

You don't even have to build a patio directly on the tiny home. It can rest near it. For instance, you can create a custom wooden deck next to the little house and thus have more space for activities like cooking, reading, and nature-watching.

Add Multiple Lofts

Perhaps the best way to take advantage of the interior space in a tiny home is to add multiple lofts. They take up the provided vertical space, so there is still plenty of room for other things like bathrooms and kitchens down below.

You can include one loft for sleeping and another on the opposite end for relaxing. Just play around with different loft designs and consult with tiny house builders. They can give you clear directions based on past builds they've dealt with.

Tiny homes provide buyers with many perks, such as affordability and portability. If you want to gain access to said perks and thus plan to build a tiny house yourself, take as long as you need to perfect your designs, construction materials, and features. Ultimately, if you play your cards right, the tiny home at the end will remain a worthwhile endeavor that provides satisfaction for years.
