I decided to work on a frivolous task first…. It looked good on those tiny paint chips, but in real life, not so good. I did do a coat of primer and 3 coats of Perfectly Purple on the first shutter, just to make sure. Since I only have that small amount, I guess I will continue to paint everything with the original color and just do a final coat on the outside only with the new color, and hope the sample is enough to do all 4 shutters. What do you think? I also made a little pallet porch, but I need to put some OSB or plywood on top because the top slats are are little too far apart. I have a pile of used OSB that might contain something I can use. I think so, but maybe not quite as big as a pallet. I probably want some kind of rain protection overhead, too. They tell me it does rain here during the summer Monsoon season.
I hope to find someone great to take it on! My house is about 2. It has a metal roof, wooden flooring, and Zip insulation. In the main house space there is a small sink with cabinets and a nice stainless steel propane, three-burner stove I installed about 1 year ago. Opposite the counter top and stove, is a wardrobe from Ikea and another wooden counter top that I just made and installed. Next to the kitchen area is the bathroom which is about 8X3 feet.

Itemized Construction Costs The cost to build a house includes a large number of components and variables based on site factors, design and materials. This home construction cost guide covers: These are fixed costs regardless of home size. This phase involves the work needed to make vacant land habitable. Engineers inspect the property to determine whether it is buildable, where the home and well and septic field, if applicable should go and how the site should be graded for drainage. The more complex the site and home, the higher these fees will be.
Water on the property typically raises the costs significantly, as an impact study must be done. The design, engineering and studies are often done for entire developments, so the absolute costs might be higher, but cost is less on a per-home basis. Finding wetlands on the property or a water table so high it prohibits building or the installation of a basement or standard drain field, delays in getting site reports completed or plans approved.

Audible Directional Flasher Here’s a tech tip for those of us whose hearing is not what it used to be when we were younger, or those of us who are younger and just can’t hear the directional flasher or see the flasher indicator light, especially with a top down in daylight. Since the time delay, even when set at max, does not give a long flashing interval, it is useful to know when it has stopped, in order to make turning intentions more obvious. I purchased a Radio Shack catalog volt mini buzzer no.
The tiny house movement has made huge strides in the past few years by promoting efficient living spaces and minimalist lifestyles in square feet or less.
Medium term we wanted to put it on a trailer and use it for a luxury travel trailer, and long term we thought we could give it to the kids as a honeymoon cabin and starter home, something to be passed on to future generations. Beautiful sq ft. Perfect for a mother-in-law suite, Accessory Dwelling Unit, starter home behind a host-house, temporary home on land while the permanent home is being built, retirement home on rural acreage, or luxurious travel-trailer if put on a trailer.
Even the interior bathroom walls are insulated to better control sound. Because this home is constructed within a shipping container, there is a greatly diminished opportunity for air-infiltration, and we expect a high level of occupant comfort with incredibly low operating costs. Hot water is supplied by a propane on-demand hot water heater. Windows are low-e, argon filled, double-hung Jeld-Wen units.
Winger At first we wanted a vintage canned ham trailer, but most needed too much rebuilding, then we thought about building a teardrop, but after seeing cargo trailer conversions we were sold! The electrical was easy, and essentially has 3 circuits to handle individual loads, however the entire trailer with LEDs and low watt Microwave, and BTU AC barely works the generator. Everything electrical can be used simultaneously without overload Try that in a conventional RV using only a single volt power source We installed LED lighting throughout with a total of 7 very bright efficient lights.
And I used a very powerful used computer CPU fan for the bathroom closet exhaust system, and had the intake fresh air to the bathroom piped in with a flapper valve underneath the chemical toilet, so when the CPU fan is turned on the lower intake flapper valve opens automatically and creates a fresh air system. Having Native Hawaiian blood myself, we also chose to Tattoo the bathroom exterior wood by burning in a Hawaiian motif into it. The interior of the bathroom closet was wallpapered using old 00 and 1 comic books we had in an old box collecting dust….

If like most people you are going to be parked up on a piece of land for an extended period, we recommend that you either use mains water available on site, or use a large standard water tank that you place near the tiny house, and pump water from there to your tiny house. This is much cheaper than custom onboard tanks and will reduce the weight on your trailer. That said, we can install water tanks into your tiny home if that is what you need, get in touch and let us know what size capacity you would like, and whether you need fresh and or grey water tanks, and we can send you indicative pricing.
Delivery You can collect from Katikati or we can arrange delivery. Our tiny homes can be towed without a pilot vehicle, however, you will need to be experienced at towing and have a vehicle capable of towing kg, if the GMV of your vehicle and the tiny house is greater than kg you will require a class 2 license. The following prices are estimates – we would need to individually price for delivery to your location at the time of transportation.
Experimental Circuits Natural Radio “Natural Radio” is simply radio noise with natural origins, mainly lightning, but also clouds of ions interacting with the earth’s magnetic field. Nearby lightning sounds like the familiar crackle heard on an ordinary AM radio but distant lightning produces distinctive “chirps. The result is that the short impulse from a lightning strike in South America can sound like a chirp in Texas.
Slower sweeping tones are called “whistlers” and they are a bit of a mystery.
Any n-channel JFET with an Idss of at least a few mA should work, but add a 1k ohm in series with the gate. If oscillation occurs, try adding a capacitor to ground across the .

Water Tanks We don’t recommend on-board water tanks unless you are building a super portable, small tiny home that is designed for travel. If like most people you are going to be parked up on a piece of land for an extended period, we recommend that you either use mains water available on site, or use a large standard water tank that you place near the tiny house, and pump water from there to your tiny house.

We also offer detachable jack legs, which bolt onto the trailer and can be used to manually jack the house up off the trailer, this is useful if you want to remove the trailer out from underneath for maintenance, to a get a WOF, or to use the trailer for a different purpose.
