Super cute and high quality TINY home design
If you're looking for an affordable, beautiful tiny house or mobile home, Self Build Timber Frame might just have what you're looking for. They build all of their mobile tiny houses with the same wall thicknesses and insulation as a regular home. So their tiny house designs are very high quality and durable. They say that their homes will last 100 years meaning that they're not like most of the mobile homes you find out there. Inside these homes, you have all you need to make small house living as comfortable as living in a regular home. They insulate the walls to regular home building standards so that the houses stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer. They also use plasterboard which you don't see all the time in mobile houses. They also build their chassis with high-quality timber construction instead of the regular metal framing used in mobile home building. The company has some designs and models you can choose from like this twin unit mobile tiny house design, or you can also give them your own input on a design and create on that's entirely your own.
A tiny house on wheels and one of these mobile homes are quite similar in the way that they are both not really legal to live in as full-time dwellings. The mobile homes from Self Build Timber Frame are much like tiny houses on wheels because they can also be easily moved around on the property and from property to property and it could still be considered a caravan as they say on their website. You can use these tiny houses as an accessory dwelling unit for part-time use, for a guest house or a part-time rental to tourists. They are not meant to be a full-time residence though. But as tiny houses are becoming more popular, people are starting to ask for changes to the laws regarding the size and building codes of houses to include tiny houses as being legal full-time dwellings. If you're interested in small house living and want to go about it the legal way, the best bet is to buy a piece of land and build a tiny house within the building codes of your area. Usually, this means that the tiny house design must be above 400 square feet with septic and other items in place. There are some places that allow tiny houses on wheels so you will have to do your research to find out what some of those places are.
Also, there are beginning to be a lot more tiny house villages where people live in their tiny houses together, and it doesn't seem to be a problem. But again, it's always best to check with your local bylaws first to see what you're working with and it never hurts to talk to some city officials as some places are welcoming new ideas to aid the housing crisis most cities face these days. If you're just looking for an extra room to add to your home, these twin mobile homes would be a great idea. Many people use them as a home office or studio, or even just an extra place to go and relax on the property. They are to be used in conjunction with a full-time legal dwelling though and not on their own without proper permitting so keep that in mind when you're considering building one. You can also get some great tiny house design inspiration for your own tiny house building project if you're interested in small house living.
