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)
