Course Description

This is a Spotlight Course of the Week (Expires: 2/22/2019)
347 - Tiny Houses Part 2 - Structural Design

This course is part two of a multi-part course series on designing tiny houses (houses 400 square feet or less in size).  The majority of this multi-part course focuses on tiny houses mounted on trailers, which are often referred to as tiny houses on wheels (THOW).  This second course focuses on structural design.  Also presented are specific techniques to structurally handle the mobile nature of THOW.  Both prescriptive and engineered methodologies are used.  Five extensive examples with calculations and 35 figures and photos are included.  The basis of this course came from my own research, planning, designing, and construction of a THOW I built myself.
