The kits range from small sheds, to full blown tiny houses and cottages. They are all created in Vermont from locally sourced rough-hewn lumbers, including hemlock and white pine. Each piece in the kit is color-coded and labeled, and includes the assembly hardware needed to build the structure. Very detailed assembly instructions make it easy for even novice builders to see exactly how to build a tiny house.
Trailer Made’s custom tiny house trailers are available in lengths from 12′ to 44′. With tandem and triple axel foundations, these trailers come in standard or wide configurations. These trailers are designed with safety in mind and feature a tube steel construction and electric brakes on every wheel. Trailer Made has also stopped using scissor jacks due to their failure rate.
One of the most intimidating aspects of taking the plunge and moving into a tiny house is how to actually build the tiny house itself. Many people wanting to embrace the tiny house lifestyle are young or maybe have corporate backgrounds, with no building experience to speak of. Buying a house from a builder can be far more expensive than buying plans and building it yourself, but for a first time builder that can be an impossible task, or can lead to costly mistakes and time delays.
