So you’ve been thinking of buying a tiny house for a while now…but you’re not exactly sure if you should build it
yourself or buy one that is all ready to go. Both are great options and either way you will end up with a beautiful tiny home of your own. But, if you like DIY projects, there are two big benefits of buying tiny house plans and building it yourself. Let’s take a look at them.
Everyone wants to save money. Whether it’s because you have a tight budget or you just want to save money to travel more, building your own tiny house from plans you buy will definitely save a ton of money on labor costs. Using your own sweat equity can literally save you thousands.
Tiny houses, just like regular houses, can vary widely on price. But, if you buy tiny home plans and are confident you can do the work yourself, you can build your custom dream home for much less!
Other ways to save money include using reclaimed or recycled building materials, searching Craigslist for free items, bartering for materials and asking for help from family and friends.
Seattle Tiny Homes DIY plans include everything from framing and electrical to plumbing and HVAC. You won’t waste money on trying to do things yourself, you have the plans and guidance to get it right the first time.
Create Your Custom Dream Home
You know exactly what you want in your tiny house – stairs instead of a ladder, that certain shade of pale yellow, a copper sink that fits just right, plenty of hidden storage space. When you build your own tiny home, you have the freedom to design it and customize it exactly the way you want.
Since this is the house you are going to be living in, you’ll want to make it exactly the way you have envisioned it. You can choose your windows, doors, ceiling height, lighting, flooring, on-the-grid or off-the-grid utilities, paint color, appliances and anything else you can think of!
With a DIY build, you also have the option to select the perfect trailer for your home’s foundation. Be sure to choose a trailer that can accommodate the weight of your home and that provides optimum weight distribution for safe towing.
