Tiny House Materials List


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 basic construction Tiny House 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.

TINY HOUSE MATERIALS – BASICS

Tiny House Kitchen

  • Refrigerator: This small 3-way Dometic fridge can run off of propane, AC or DC. Great off-grid option.
  • Stovetop: 3-burner, uses propane.

  • Coffee Maker. No electricity, great space saver.
  • Toaster: Stove top option. Requires no electricity.
  • Sink: Yosemite Magnus2020 20″ x 20″ x 8″. I don’t think it’s available anymore, let me know if you find it!
  • Countertops – Alligator Juniper wood slabs (hollowed out to conserve weight)

BATHROOM

BEDROOM

  • Foam Mattress – Great for the loft. Breathable. I have the 5″ version which is no longer available.

TINY HOUSE BOOKS I LOVE

Tiny House Decisions by expert Tiny Houser, Ethan Waldman, discusses the real challenges you face when going tiny. There are many decisions to be made, some big and some small. This book is a great guide for getting you over the hump and working towards your Tiny House dream. The book can be purchased solo or as a package with video tours and interviews.

The best construction guide on the market, in my opinion, is Tiny House Builder’s Tiny House Design & Construction Guide. You can purchase it as a stand-alone book, or with a video tutorial package (recommended).

    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

        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.

        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! 🙂

        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.
