A popular trend in the world of tiny houses on wheels is to build the home 10-feet wide. While this is over the road limit of 8-feet, 6-inches, most people don’t move their tiny homes often and obtaining a temporary oversize load permit to move the house is usually not too hard to obtain.
The builder of this home is Nelson Tiny Houses, located in Nelson, British Columbia. The homes they build are always filled with beautiful custom woodwork and every detail carefully thought-through. Subscribe to the Nelson Tiny Houses YouTube Channel for more videos from this tiny house builder.
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.
