Today I traveled to Raleigh, NC to check out Jay Shaffer’s Tiny House Workshop, which is designed to teach people how to build their own Tiny Home. When I walked into the meeting room, I knew we would have a good number of people, but I didn’t expect to have over 50 people here!
After doing introductions, we jumped into building codes and zoning, talking about several options when it comes to legal issues. The message to drive home here was, it depends. It depends on your local entity, on the person you talk to and their mood. Overall, we discussed many options.
We also had two groups talk about their Tiny Houses that they are actually building, a group down in Charleston and another couple building their own house. This was a really neat aspect to see the houses they were creating, it also gave some great outside viewpoints on the design and building process.
We are now into the actual construction of the house. We talked about trailers, framing, sheeting and many many other details. I will report about tomorrow’s
