Please take a minute to complete this survey! Tiny house folks are hoping to compare the “average” tiny houser to the “average” American.
Curious as to whether you are still required to get a DMV permit/tag for the trailer? Do they now treat this as an RV, instead of a trailer? If the building code requires 220 square feet plus a kitchen and bathroom, would it be legal to actually live in this as a dwelling?
I saw your house in Newport. Your Dad gave me the tour. Great work! I really like what you’ve done.
I think using a gas heater instead of wood stove was a good choice. Even a small stove would tend to overheat such a small space, and it would be tough to regulate an even temperature. If you could build a fire that didn’t make the place too hot, it would be such a small wood load that it couldn’t get you through the night without numerous trips down from the loft to reload the firebox. We heat with a small Jotul in a bedroom wing, which is bigger than your house, and it is tough to keep the temperature steady and comfortable, particularly through the night.
SO, IMO your gas heater was a better choice.
I hope you get your price for the house.
Good luck as you move on to your next project/career, whatever they may be!
I stumbled upon your blog a couple of weeks ago and wanted to let you know that I am currently building a small house for my thesis project as well up in MA. I’m about half-way through and also hoping to sell it come spring time. Is there any way I might be able to e-mail you a couple of questions about your house?
Check out my blog if you get a chance:
This would be wonderful to have. As an older person on a limited income it would be great. I could park it on my children’s land. Wonder if Habitat for Humanity would take a project like this on?
I’m not sure but that’d be a great project for them!
