Living in a tiny space is great, but you want to ensure plenty of light and a sense of airiness. That’s why we designed the Ballard model with an abundance of windows.
For the windows themselves, we chose solid wood frames with aluminum cladding on the exterior for longevity. When installing them, we used the Tyvek system for window flashing. It’s more expensive than simple window flashings but is one more step to ensure that moisture and air stay in the right places.
Inside the house, the natural wood frames are beautiful and add a sense of elegance. No matter where you are in the house, the view outside is always close by.
Of course, adding windows to a tiny home is a bit of an art. There are multiple goals to consider: a sense of architectural balance, ensuring there is enough light inside, and best use of the space inside. In an environment where every inch counts, it takes a lot of effort to get the windows placed for maximum beauty and effectiveness. But we think we’ve succeeded with the Ballard model!
