Dennis’ Tiny House on Wheels

Dennis had his 24-foot tiny house on wheels build by MitchCraft Tiny Homes in Fort Collins, Colorado. The structure is built with SIPs (structurally insulated panels).

SIPs are engineers panels that are typically built with custom dimensions for each project. Instead of framing the wall with 2x4s and plywood, the builder assembles the large panels and secures them together. In the case of a tiny house the floor, walls and roof can be made from SIPs.

This module form of construction can make a very sturdy and lightweight shell in a short amount of time. The cost may be higher than typical framing, but with the potential savings on labor it may actually end up being less expensive – depending on the project requirements.

Inside Dennis’ home you’ll find a full kitchen, living area, folding dining table, bathroom with composting toilet and stainless steel shower enclosure, two lofts, and stairs that double as storage.

On the exterior you’ll find wood siding and a corrugated steel roofing used as exterior wainscoting – which gives the house a nice horizontal banding effect. On top the house there’s a simple metal shed roof – ideal for adding headroom in the loft.

Tiny House – Grown and Not Built

The innovative company Ecovative recently “grew” their first tiny house. Or more precisely, after putting together the pine walls of the tiny house, they filled it with the so-called Mushroom Insulation. This insulation proceeded to literally grow in place inside the wall cavities, which already contained all the wiring and plumbing. In this way, the insulation actually glued together the pine boards used to build the framework of the house.” – Jetson Green
