        I've enjoyed Tiny House Nation. The river house and mountain house in Colorado were interesting. I get the concept on the permanently placed tiny homes. What I don't get is the mobile ones. Using traditional building methods to build them they are extremely heavy requiring a F-350 or equivalent to tow them to the new location. If I were inclined to do that I'd probably go with a travel trailer. It is already made for moving, has the plumbing system built in with holding tanks if needed rather than using a composting toilet. A travel trailer would also have the advantage of being much lighter for the space.


        General Disclaimer

        Any advice given here is general in nature and is not necessarily valid for your given area. If in doubt check with your local codes enforcement department for what is required when doing electrical, plumbing or structural work on your house. Permits may or may not be required in your area and home owners may not be able to DIY some tasks. I have no way of knowing if you have the skills needed to complete the tasks you are asking about, when in doubt seek professional assistance.

        My advice may be worth exactly what you pay me for it. :-) For the record I did not stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
