Below you will find MY TINY HOUSE MATERIALS, including my favorite appliances and space savers. I have used each and every one of these items, and I’ve been satisfied with the functionality. That being said, there are many options out there. Use this list as a guide, and purchase the materials that work for your specific Tiny House design, lifestyle, and climate.

PLANS AND TRAILER

   

My house was built on a 20 foot Tumbleweed Utility Trailer using Tumbleweed Cypress Overlook Plans. The plans included a detailed breakdown of materials, such as structural lumber, sheathing, etc. I customized my plans, extending the dormers and changing the interior. For more information on the build plans and trailer I used, click on the links above.

I attended a Tumbleweed workshop and purchased the “How-To” DVD. It’s a little out of date now, but still very helpful for covering the basics of Tiny House building.

  1. Hi, I can’t see your material list. The link in each section doesn’t appear anymore. I wanted to know if it was a problem with my computer or is it another problem?? Thank you

      1. I had the same issue and couldn’t see any of the materials. The issue was adblock was registering the links as ads. Turn that off and you are set.

      2. It’s invisible to me too, just a list of titles ‘Kitchen’; ‘Bathroom’; ‘Plumbing’ etc. but with nothing below them. I’m in the UK, I don’t know if that’s relevant but I thought it might have something to do with it. Thanks for all your great work anyway! 🙂

      3. This page is full of Amazon product displays. If you have an ad blocker on, all you’ll see is the title and intro paragraph of each section.

        Either turn the blocker off or open this page in an alternate browser without a blocker.

  2. Hello! I am finishing my drainage and bought a RV twist connect kit to connect to the RhinoFLEX hose. My problem is I cant find an adapter for the twist connect kit to attach to my 2 or 3″ pvc drain pipes. It appears its made for hose connections and not 2 or 3″ pvc. Curious how you connected yours? Thanks!

    1. Your quick! I’ll call that the female end. I need a way to connect the male end to a pvc pipe. Hope that makes sense. Thanks!

  3. I just want to thank you for sharing all of your hard work and research with us. We are getting ready to build our tiny home out at a lake property we purchased years ago and it takes hours and hours researching the best way to do many of the things we want to do. You’ve narrowed things down for us and have given us great ideas and the links you provide to purchase the items has been so hopeful. Also the cost analysis we can now put together as we customize each situation is priceless. Because of your info./links we’ll be able to keep from wasting time and money and save accordingly. Finding your blog has been a real blessing since you already did all the hard work and have used the items and report back on your findings. You rock! I can’t wait to read more when I get the time.
