Course Description

This is a Spotlight Course of the Week (Expires: 2/22/2019)
346 - Tiny Houses Part 1 - Planning and Design Considerations, Legality, and the Engineer’s Role

This course serves as an introduction to designing tiny houses (houses 400 square feet or less in size).  The majority of this multi-part course series focuses on tiny houses mounted on trailers which are often referred to as tiny houses on wheels (THOW).  This introduction covers general planning and design considerations regarding trailers, appliances, utility connections, floor plans, and lofts.  It also goes over the legal issues concerning construction standards and physical placement of both THOW and tiny houses on foundations.  The basis of this course came from my own research, planning, designing, and construction of a THOW I built myself.
