Seriously, the Tiny House Movement is in the best interests of humanity in trying to create a liveable habitat that meets the needs of singles and couples with as little impact on the environment as possible and are very affordable compared to typical home prices..
Yet, the laws are currently designed to promote waste and indentured servitude to the financial entities since they don’t view the Tiny House paradigm as a secure option to finance.
The more I see of this world, the more I dread what it’s becoming on a moment by moment basis. I try hard to stay positive but I”m reaching the end of my patience. I want things to be different, yet all the sheeple masses of this country would prefer we all own assault rifles so that we can kill one another claming self defense.
How many people would no longer be homeless just by communities accepting the tiny house movement as viable?
Humanity today has it’s priorities really screwed up.
I guess something that I'm curious about is if you bought the land that you're building your trailer on? If so did you choose to build on the trailer to avoid the septic requirements? At first i was a bit confused as to why, if you own the land already, you didn't just build a smaller cabin. I love your plans and good luck with the rest of your demolition and construction!
Hi there! Good question, my husband’s parents own the land. So depending on the circumstances we have to move at some point if they ever decide to sell the land. We did almost build a small cabin, but you are required to get a permit if you build anything over 120 sq. ft. You could call it a “shed” but then we would be worried our neighbor or someone would see that someone is living in it an report us. There a lot more rules about what qualifies as a dwelling which subsequently would skyrocket our costs. We would have to build a septic tank which can easily cost $4,000-10,000. And there are certain size requirements for the rooms. Seeing as we have a very small budget to build our tiny house, this route wasn’t an option for us. We decided that building a tiny house on a trailer seemed like the best plan because it’s not subject to building codes. Technically it is an RV and you can even have it registered with the DMV making it legal. We live in a rural area but we are still close enough to civilization where codes are enforced. There are certain areas in the VERY rural areas where you can build anything you want. However, my husband is a photographer and needs to be close to people! Thank you! We are hoping to finish the demo of the camper soon so I can finalize the building plans. :)
Recycling Camper for Tiny House - Ceiling Goes Down
Today we finally got the ceiling down. We had to take out the bathroom, which is pretty much a combination of the shower, toilet, and sink all in one in piece of fiberglass. Then my husband just pushed on the side wall and it collapsed! We are going to have a lot of wood to burn and metal to scrap. The floor should be easy to get up because it is rotten. We are getting so close to being able to start building our tiny house.
