THE SMART CHOICE, A “QUICK START” DIY SHELL


OUR QUICK START SHELLS HAVE 8′ WIDE FLOOR DECKS AND ARE AVAILABLE IN LENGTHS FROM 16′ TO 30′


We understand that many of you want-to-be tiny house owners have a strong do-it-yourself mentality. That’s why offer you the choice of several  “Quick Start” tiny house shells. Give yourself a jump-start on the experience of building your very own tiny house. We’ll get you building on the right trailer (included), do the wall/roof framing, sheathing and the first layer of weatherproofing. From there you’ll take over and use your creativity and personal touchs to finish up your tiny house. If you would rather have us take care of the exterior siding/trim, windows, door and roofing, our Pro-Grade Exterior package is going to be the best fit!
