It’s a lot of work building a house, and I say this while still in the design stage.  I think I know what we’re getting ourselves into.  That doesn’t make it any less intimidating.

Meanwhile, as we’re planning we’re coming across products we like and think we want to use.  I figured I’d store this information on a blog in case it helps anyone else building a tiny house.  I’ll keep things updated as our wants and needs shift.


  • Refrigerator (looking at these two)
  • Induction cooktop (something like this)
  • Oven
  • Marvin aluminum-clad or fiberglass windows
  • Interior wall finish
  • Exterior siding




  • solar panel system
  • RV hookup


Fire Protection

  • Carbon monoxide detector
