What people are saying...
"Andrew's the bomb when it comes to building a tiny house and explaining the process clearly. I can't recommend his video highly enough. It's the most beautifully done and thoroughly informative footage. Andrew's a far better builder than most anyone I know, including me." - Jay Shafer (FourLightsHouses.com)
"The hOMe plans are very high quality, contain a lot of detail, and are geared toward the beginner builder. The materials list is incredibly detailed and the framing plans feature more detail than standard. Also, Andrew’s detailed video explaining how to read house plans is not to be missed." - Ryan Mitchell (TheTinyLife.com)
"Andrew has such a genuine way about him that makes everyone immediately feel both comfortable and part of a team. If you have the opportunity to attend of of his workshops, you must go!

The maximum trailer girth of 8’6″ (102″) has been pummeled into us tiny housers for so long that most of us don’t even consider breaching it when designing our tiny houses. In truth, trailers up to 16′ wide are allowed to be towed down major highways provided all safety measures (permits, flags, pilot cars, etc.) are met. […]
