Today I have exciting news! Over the past few years I’ve had people ask for a book that teaches you how to actually build a tiny house, not just a bunch of posts or websites, but one book. A single book that takes the first time tiny home builder from beginning to end, doing a deep dive on the entire process.
The truth is I’ve written a lot here on the blog, all free, but there needed to be a single resource where people could learn how to build a tiny house in an easy to read format, designed to be simple, where I could get into the nitty gritty details of the whole process. That’s what I wanted to do with my new book How To Build A Tiny House.
This book is for those who want to build a tiny house or small home, but don’t know where to start. I wrote this book for the absolute beginner, starting with the basics and then explaining the build process step by step. I talk you through the tools, the materials, how to make the big decisions and avoid huge mistakes.
This is a 246 page guide gives you step by step instructions on how to build your own tiny house using any set of plans or your own design. I give you the background knowledge to expertly navigate the building process with confidence, avoid common mistakes, and answer your questions at every step.
