From Texas-sized 2 Tiny House For Three
Here’s a couple questions for all the professional tiny house builders out there who might be looking for yet another way to serve tiny house customers:
I can tell you right now that if an experienced TH builder would build just the framing of our house (perhaps even as far as installing windows & the door and the outer vapor barrier to seal it all up) so we could gradually install the finishes to suit our needs, we would jump on that option! Our schedules and familial obligations are going to be the biggest obstacle to our build once we actually start, and without a giant carport or a warehouse to store the unfinished product in as we slowly chip away at the process, we are concerned the sometimes harsh and always unpredictable Texas weather will damage our house beyond our capabilities (and budget) to safely repair.
Having the house in a sealable state from the get-go, however, would be an amazing starting point for those of us who can’t devote whole days/weeks/months to building but genuinely want to have the option to select and install all the custom features they will actually interact with while living in their homes. For people like us who plan to actually tow the house cross-country it would also be an amazing stress reliever to know the physical structure of the house, the very bones holding her up, was created by building experts who can properly secure and support a tiny house for the added wear and tear that comes from regular road travel. A little peace of mind goes a long way when you plan to tow your entire house behind you at highway speeds over hill and dale!
So, you as a TH buyer/DIYer:
Would you be interested in an “FIY” model like this? What would be on your must-have list for a house you get to finish yourself, and what do you think would be a fair price for builders to charge? Let us know in the comments below!
And builders, if you would seriously consider offering something like this, we would L-O-V-E to be your Guinea pigs and help you show off your latest project and options for your valued customers! Let us know!! 🙂
