Ashland Tiny House 2019
This home was built by students at the Ashland Blazer High School, as part of a "Build it Forward" initiative through grant funding by KVEC (Kentucky Valley Educational Cooperative). This is a self sustaining grant, and proceeds from this sale will be put back into the school for building next year.
We started with a Dual Axle 14,000 LB trailer (8.5' x 24')and built an 8.5' wide x 26' long x 13'-5" Tall Tiny House.
Total living space of 255 sq. ft, and 10 sq. ft. of outside storage in the utility closet on the back. Spray foam insulation was used in the trailer beams and Advantech flooring as our sub-floor.
The rafters were attached to a Glulam Ridge Beam 3.125" x 5.875" x 26'
On the outside, we used Rustic Cedar Beveled Siding, Jelf Wen Premium Vinyl Awning Windows, and Graber Metal Roofing (Hartford Green) with a Class 4 impact resistance rating.
The inside walls and ceiling were insulated with batting insulation and Appalachian Red Oak Tongue & Grove Flooring was used for the floor. Appalachian Red Oak T & G 5" wide planks with a reversible pattern were used for the loft floor and ceiling and also used on the walls as wainscoting. The top section of the walls were finished out with 1/2" Oak Plywood.
There is a 50 amp electrical connection on the outside, which can be changed over to a 100 amp service if need be. All receptacles are wired with a 12-2 wire while all lights are on 14-2 wire.
All construction was overseen by licensed instructors, and was given a final inspection by the county inspector. This house has a Haier 2.0 Ventless Combination Washer/Dryer and an Ascent 2 Macerating toilet system. All plumbing was done with 6 outlet manifolds, with individual shut-off values.
Heat/cooled by a Senville 12,000 BTU Mini Split Air Conditioner/heat pump with a wireless remote.
There is also a Whirlpool 14.3 cu. ft. top freezer refrigerator, 19-gallon hot water tank, and two 30 gallon propane tanks.
