It is one of the biggest concerns on every new tiny home builder’s mind: How much room am I going to have in that loft? We are asked all the time, “What is the highest that I can go?” There are set limitations for sure, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t ways to sneak out as much headroom as possible. Here is what you need to know to make the most of your tiny house height.
Every time we attend an event with one of our tiny houses, we are constantly asked about the height. Our house is 13’5” high, just one inch below the legal limit set by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The response is normally, “WOW! How do you drive with that in tow?” Here are some of the things to think about when it comes to tiny house height.
One of the more common questions that we are asked is, “How do you keep your tiny home secure?” Well, let’s discuss secure for a moment. Given enough time and remote enough location, any tiny house out there can be stolen. But there are precautions that you can take and tiny house security systems that you can install. Here is how to make it as tough as possible for thieves to steal your home and your possessions and make it as easy as possible to recover your home should they succeed.
Something exciting is about to happen! You are searching for the most important feature of your Tiny House to be. The cornerstone. The tiny house trailer. What should you be looking for in a trailer that is about to carry a house?
Are you in Canada or the northeastern US and in the market for a tiny house trailer? In the past we’ve delivered trailers as far north as upstate New York from our Florida location. But as you can image the delivery costs can get pretty expensive when travelling that far. Well we’ve now added a new pickup location in Toronto, Ontario Canada to service the northeast!
We’ve also simplified the process of ordering a trailer with all the available options on our website. Just go to our trailer page and click “Build & Price Your Trailer”
I get a lot of questions about how to attach a tiny house to one of our trailers. You can check out my answer here.
We introduced a line of tiny house trailers a few months ago, but since the trailers are manufactured down in Florida and I live near Atlanta I hadn’t had a chance to take any pictures or them (and my Dad, who lives in Florida, is no Ansel Adams ;). But I finally went back down there to work on a house for the Jacksonville and Atlanta Home Shows and brought a trailer back with me to deliver to one of my workshop attendees (that makes 6 now that are building house, woo hoo). So I took the opportunity to take some pictures and record a video showing off the features of the trailers. You can get more information at https://www.tinyhomebuilders.com/tiny-house-trailers
