The “average” tiny houser…

Hi everyone!  

Please take a minute to complete this survey!  Tiny house folks are hoping to compare the “average” tiny houser to the “average” American.

  1. Curious as to whether you are still required to get a DMV permit/tag for the trailer? Do they now treat this as an RV, instead of a trailer? If the building code requires 220 square feet plus a kitchen and bathroom, would it be legal to actually live in this as a dwelling?

  2. I saw your house in Newport. Your Dad gave me the tour. Great work! I really like what you’ve done.
    I think using a gas heater instead of wood stove was a good choice. Even a small stove would tend to overheat such a small space, and it would be tough to regulate an even temperature. If you could build a fire that didn’t make the place too hot, it would be such a small wood load that it couldn’t get you through the night without numerous trips down from the loft to reload the firebox. We heat with a small Jotul in a bedroom wing, which is bigger than your house, and it is tough to keep the temperature steady and comfortable, particularly through the night.
    SO, IMO your gas heater was a better choice.
    I hope you get your price for the house.
    Good luck as you move on to your next project/career, whatever they may be!

  3. Hello –
    I stumbled upon your blog a couple of weeks ago and wanted to let you know that I am currently building a small house for my thesis project as well up in MA. I’m about half-way through and also hoping to sell it come spring time. Is there any way I might be able to e-mail you a couple of questions about your house?
    Check out my blog if you get a chance:

  4. This would be wonderful to have. As an older person on a limited income it would be great. I could park it on my children’s land. Wonder if Habitat for Humanity would take a project like this on?
