Recently, we shipped our shell plus kit to Jamie who is a single dad to two adult boys. Jamie is an interior designer and it was his dream to someday start his own business. However, having kids early put a setback to his plans, but once his kids become adults and started taking care of themselves, he wanted to relive his dream. But, he did not just want a home office. He wanted to build a completely private space for himself, which he can use as an extended living area and also his office. He wanted to leave the primary house to his sons to give them their privacy, and he really liked the concept of ADU or accessory dwelling unit.

ADU is like an extended living area in the primary property lot and the unit can be designed as anything. So, he chose our 8.5’x26’ sized affordable tiny house kits as he wanted the place to be spacious and also he has a big backyard.

Once he received the shipment, he and his elder son took about 3 days to assemble all the parts together. He was really glad that our kit came with all the panels and walls that were pre-cut. So, installing and assembling the tiny house seemed like a puzzle. He wrote back to us saying that the DIY project was fun for him and he would recommend it to his friends as well.

The main aspect of our shell plus kit that Jamie liked was the environment-friendliness of our kit. Our panels, walls and ceiling of the kit are well-insulated, which means that Jamie does not have to worry about high energy bills. One heater is good enough to give comfort during the colder seasons. We have also carried out a snow load test on the kit’s ceiling to ensure that the ceiling can withstand the load of the snow and other weather elements.

As for the interior of the ADU, Jamie wanted to show off his interior designing skills. He kept the design minimal, but unique. The office space was quaint and it was designed differently than the rest of the tiny house. He wanted to create that distinction. He wanted to show off his skills, and hence, went all out when it came to decorating the interior and exterior walls of the tiny house ADU.

Jamie wanted the ADU to be portable and he told us that he had an unused trailer lying in his house. Our team helped him with the idea of using that trailer and assembling the parts on it so that his ADU would become on wheels.

Even though he calls it ADU, he plans to use it as a home, home office and maybe even a space to chill with his friends while his kids take care of the main house.

Heather’s interior design consultancy firm is now a reality – All thanks to BOSS’ DIY shell plus kit

Not everyone is cut out for the 9 to 5 desk job, not everyone likes to have a boss or travel to the office daily.

Not everyone is cut out for the 9 to 5 desk job, not everyone likes to have a boss or travel to the office daily. One fine example is Heather, a lady who was passionate about starting her own studio. 

Heather was going to be made partner in a well-known interior design firm in New York, but she thought that she had enough. She wanted to come back to California and start a design firm of her own. Unfortunately, however, fancy her job position was, the pay wasn’t enough to rent out a high-end office space and start her business. But, she had already turned in her resignation and there was no turning back.

Once back home in California, she started searching for office spaces to rent. She hit a dead end every time she liked a property, either due to the high monthly rental or because of the distance from her home. When she was on the verge of giving up, her friend suggested BOSS. We were extremely happy to get a call from her and walked her through our tiny house shell plus kit.

Our shell plus product comes in two sizes and she chose the 8.5’x26’ variant over the 8.5’x20’ one as she wanted a spacious office. She told us that she was particularly happy about how environment-friendly our shell plus kits were. If you are wondering why, it is because our kit comes with insulated panels and walls. So, when the exterior and the interior walls and panels are insulated, you can save on energy bills. The insulated walls will keep you comfortable throughout the year. 

Heather was a bit concerned about the robustness of the roof before she committed to buy a tiny house shell from us, but we assured her that the roof of our shell plus kit has gone through rigorous testing. We have put it through the snow load test to make sure that the roof is strong enough to handle adverse weather conditions. Our tests have revealed that the roof can withstand 30 lbs/sq ft of snow. 

Another interesting fact about our DIY shell plus kit is the high ceiling. Very few tiny house providers can offer you that. The high ceiling can accommodate two to three tall people and as she plans to hire some associates to work under her, this arrangement seemed perfect to her. 

So, Heather went through our tiny house shell for sale and ordered herself a kit, which we shipped out to her immediately in a wooden crate. The shell plus kit arrived in one piece and as she opened the crate, she found that the frames and panels were already pre-cut. We do this so that the installation process becomes hassle-free.

Heather took 3 days to assemble our tiny house shell plus kit and she made use of her creativity to breathe life into her workspace, which has a small dinette area, a dedicated space to entertain her clients and a fully functional bathroom. As she is an interior designer and this space was going to be her workplace, she designed it beautifully so that clients will be impressed with what she has done. Heather also mentioned to the BOSS professionals exactly where she needed the electrical and plumbing supply line, and we customized it for her.
