Tiny House Chat – Building Details In Various Climates


After talking with tons of Tiny House builders Macy and I started exploring the different strategies and materials that you use for a cold climate, or a hot climate, but then what about places like NC, where it gets really hot and humid, but still gets to 10 degrees with snow in the winter?  This month we will be getting down to the nitty-gritty and tackling some details of building your Tiny House for various climates.  For anyone who is considering building a Tiny House, this is a must see and its free!

Our guest hosts this month will be tiny house builders in the north, Noreen and Jill from Chestnut Street Small House Co., and tiny house builder in the South, Dan Louche from tinyhomebuilders.com, along with Ryan of course in North Carolina, and myself in the Pacific Northwest. We will have some details to share and discuss. Join us with all your questions and insights about how to handle moisture, ventilation, wall systems, attachment methods along with whatever else you can think of for each climate region. Not all methods are relevant or even ‘good’ in each climate, join us to understand why!

This chat will be:

Tiny House Chat is a space for Tiny House enthusiasts to come together and share ideas and stories. The concept of this is to be for the Tiny House community and facilitated by the community. We hope that this platform will achieve the following:

  • Develop lasting connections among the Tiny House community.
  • Strengthen and expand the community.
  • Foster the sharing of ideas.
  • Provide a resource for the various stages of a tiny house, from the ideas stage to the ‘is-this-working-right’ stage.
  • Have a lot of fun and get to know each other better!!
