Beschreibung

'This thought provoking book is a great resource for anyone considering joining the tiny house movement.  It's all the information you need in one book!  The author has done a phenomenal job blending real world experience, data and practical knowledge on all types of tiny homes.'
-Corinne Watson, Principle and Co-Founder, Tiny Homes of Maine
'Charlie Wing's very readable Tiny House Handbook leads you through the processes of designing and building a tiny home, with careful attention to all the details, including legal issues, cost estimates, material utilization and foundation options. Charlie is a master at demystifying the seemingly complex process of homebuilding. This book will help you live both comfortably and lighter on the land.'
-John S. Crowley, CEO of FACET and Board member, Build It Green
Plan, design, and build a tiny house from scratch
 

The Tiny House Handbook is a comprehensive guide to everything you need to know to construct your very own tiny house. Produced in Charlie Wing's signature 'visual handbook' style and jam-packed with full-color illustrations and diagrams, this book includes step-by-step instructions for building a tiny house as well as information on cost estimating and design requirements. 

Based on 2018 International Residential Code (IRC) Appendix Q, this book includes sample construction drawings and floor plans for a variety of tiny home styles, including: 

·       Mobile (8'6'-wide trailers and RVs) 

·       Movable (12'-wide, routine transport permit) 

·       Site-built (up to 20' wide) 

Rather than being just another inspirational collection of tiny home photographs, The Tiny House Handbook constitutes a complete and fulsome reference for anyone seeking to build their own tiny home. From seasoned construction vets to total novices, this book will walk you through the process of designing and building a tiny house from start to finish.
