I’ve been wanting to write this post for sometime now, however, time has not been on my side this summer.
Fortunately, things are slowing down somewhat which will allow me to focus on my own tiny home build as well as new content here on LiveTiny.ca…both of which have suffered a bit of neglect in recent months.
I must confess, I had been neglecting my tiny house build because it seemed like buying the trailer that acts as the foundation of the house would prove to be cost prohibitive. I received a few quotes from some of the “big name” trailer fabricators in Ontario, for my 24′ plan the average trailer was $10,000 and at 28′ I was looking at well over $12,000.
After doing some research into modifying an RV frame, which proved to be fairly costly after modifications to make the frame and wheels suitable for the weight of a tiny home.
While looking into the costs in modifying an RV frame I came across a local trailer fabricator who was able to quote my tiny house trailer based on specs provided by the architects/designers of the tiny home design I’ve selected in the end and let me tell you, the price is very reasonable, not cost prohibitive at all.
Over the course of the past 8 months I’ve run into issues with my hips which has also changed the scope of the build. Single floor living has become imperative in my search for the perfect tiny home.
In the end I’ve decided to build a 28′ tiny home which will allow me to live on a single floor without relying on ladders and/or steps to a loft space for sleeping.
Over the course of the next week I will be sharing more about preparing for my personal build…including the designers of my tiny as well as the actual model.
I can’t wait to share this adventure with all of you – this is the reason I started this site close to a year ago now…and here I go!
