And now, here's the tiny house trailer, positioned and leveled inside the warehouse where we'll be building.
It's an 8x20 trailer and there is a flange along the sides to help with attaching the house to the trailer, plus a few other modifications to make the trailer work well as a tiny house foundation. We've jacked up the trailer and leveled it. We've purchased tools and supplies. We've gone over ideas and questions for the design. We've made a jig for the curved rafters. We've been to Menard's (several times), and Home Depot, and 2 different Habitat Re-Stores.
And tomorrow? Tomorrow we start building the floor!
On your mark... get set...
In mid June my builder friend and I picked up my tiny house trailer in Colorado (where it was manufactured) and drove it to Iowa (where the home will be built). Howell Machine and Engineering and Tiny Home Builders were both great about answering our questions, relieving our concerns and helping us get on the road.
Today I sent off the check that will allow the manufacturing of my custom tiny home trailer to begin, and I must say, it felt rather momentous. Is it the end of an old life? The beginning of a new one? Or is it just another passing landmark on a journey that started years ago?
