Jamie built a multipurpose ADU on his backyard with BOSS’ shell plus kit

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.

BOSS’ shell plus kits have helped several families in need of building an accessory dwelling unit to be used as a secondary house. Recently, we delivered our shell plus kit to the Manson family in California and they used this secondary place as a guest house since their primary home lacked space. They were particularly happy about the insulated exterior and interior walls, and insulated roof that our tiny house shell plus kits provide. As they are concerned about the environment and this way they get to save a lot of energy, they highly recommended our kits to their friends as well. 

But, that’s not all. We also tested the roof against snow load. So, you can rest easy knowing that the roof is robust and it can stand tall against the elements of weather. Also, we have kept the ceiling-high so that tall people do not have to crouch or bend. More features that our shell plus kits come with include deadbolt locks on steel doors and double-pane windows that can be locked. For the ease of DIY enthusiasts, we have pre-cut the walls and frames so that they can be assembled without any hassle.

Keep your beloved elderly close with a tiny house granny pod- How the BOSS team worked on it

Margaret was brought up by a single mom who had to work 3 jobs to make ends meet. Life was tough, but they somehow managed to survive through it all. Margaret was able to finish school, get a job, find a good husband and she also had two kids.

Margaret was brought up by a single mom who had to work 3 jobs to make ends meet. Life was tough, but they somehow managed to survive through it all. Margaret was able to finish school, get a job, find a good husband and she also had two kids. But, she wasn’t satisfied because she hadn’t been able to fulfill the promise she made to her mother – to find her a nicer apartment.

Design Yours

Well, she finally got her dream come true last week when she contacted BOSS. She checked out our tiny house kits for sale and shared with us her beautiful story. As she had recently lost her husband, we knew she needed help building the tiny granny pod for her mother in her garden and our team was excited to help her out. At BOSS, our clients are our priority.

She told us that DIY was not an option for her as she barely had time from managing her small business and looking after her kids. Once she selected the size, style and shape of the tiny house kit, our team arrived at the on-site location and starting building her granny pod for her mother. Our steel structure panels with engineering ASTM certifications gave her the peace of mind that even though the granny pod will be small, it will be long-lasting and robust.

As she wanted something very simple and minimal, we suggested her to divide the space so she can have a small room for her business from where she could work-from-home. She immediately jumped to the idea. So, we divided the tiny house into two sections. The larger section was designed to be the bedroom and living room for her mother, and the smaller section with a glass door was her office space. The two sections shared a common kitchen and bathroom.

We set the tiny house on an elevated ground as Margaret wanted to have stairs on the exterior of the house and a little porch where she placed a couple of chairs and a small table. As for the interiors, our kit already came with pre-installed plumbing and electrical systems. Additionally, we designed the place with a comfortable bed, and a small sofa on the side and a bedside table for the night lamp. We fitted the kitchen with cabinets so that utensils can be stored without taking up a lot of space. For her office space, she only wanted to have a workstation and a couple of chairs and wanted to design that space in the future when her business grew.

BOSS’ team helped her finish building the tiny house granny pod within a week and she was ecstatic as she wanted her mother to move-in as soon as possible. She even wrote back to us telling us how her mother loved the cozy house and the chance to be near her daughter and grandkids.

If you also have such a story, reach out to us. Our tiny home kits for sale are affordable and once purchased, you can have that entire space to yourself, rent-free. If money is a problem, we have flexible financing plans for you.

Tiny Home Office Plus Retreat – a Great Idea!

As families grow, space requirements change. This is where BOSS’ tiny home kits come in handy.

As families grow, space requirements change. This is where BOSS’ tiny home kits come in handy. Recently, our team helped build a tiny home office/retreat for a teleworker. Since he works from home full-time, he really needed a separate space for his office. He did not need more or a lot of space, but just wanted to be out of earshot of all the fun his kids were having.

Design Yours

We bet even you can imagine the challenge of participating in an important conference call while the sounds of happy children and barking dogs echo in the background!

So, the teleworker also wanted to build a tiny house for weekend getaways, and we offered him our tiny house for sale, along with the expertise of our design team. We came up with a design that served both his purpose of having a weekend cabin and home office.

We kept the design simple as he had a tight budget, but we managed to make the tiny house design functional and aesthetically appealing. For the home office, we included both a sit-down and stand-up desk because he wanted to be on his feet more. He did not want to be constantly sitting down in front of the computer and we made sure to include that in our tiny home office design. The desk that we chose for him was ergonomic and can also be used for various functions when the tiny house is being used as a camping cabin. The desk even had drawers so that it worked as a flexible workstation and also storage solution.

We fitted his tiny house with a simple bathroom consisting of a composting toilet, small food prep space with a fully stocked fridge and coffee machine, and a sleeping space. We divided the interior of the tiny house with a ladder and made the upper area as the sleeping area so that the office felt more spacious. So, when he needs to relax, he uses the ladder and heads to the sleeping area which has a soft, fluffy mattress and bean bags.

For his office, he needed a fax machine and a printer, which we set it up by bringing in a multipurpose table with shelves. The equipment fits perfectly and he also had space to fit a phone on the desk.

As our tiny house kits already come equipped with electrical and plumbing systems, we didn’t have to worry about that.

For the exterior of the tiny home office/retreat, he wanted a chilled out vibe. We came up with the idea of placing some greens and creepers to make the place look vibrant and also official.

Once we gave him the basic idea of the design, he took up the responsibility of the rest of the decoration. His tiny home office/camping cabin was assembled, designed and ready in less than a week.

So, if you are also in need of a space where you can work in peace, check out our tiny home kits for sale. You can order for tiny house kits and turn it into a DIY project or let our team assist you.

You can build a studio tiny house on foundation or on wheels. It doubles as your personal space where you make art and also your workshop where people can come in and purchase your work. It can also be an intimate gathering place where a couple of other artists join you in making great music/dance/sculpture.

The best part? You do not need to start your studio building project with a whole lot of construction experience. Our tiny house kits are all-inclusive and come with easy-to-understand instructions. All you have to do is assemble the kit alone or with the help of artist friends. Watching a short YouTube tutorial on assembling a tiny house should be enough. However, wherever you get stuck, you can count on our team.

So, all you need is a bit of space, which can be your backyard. Start your studio tiny house assembly at a place of your choice and decorate it with a minimalist flair. For instance, if you are a musician, you would mostly need space to keep your musical instruments and recording devices. Avoid getting too much furniture as that will take up a lot of space.

Your music/art studio tiny house can have a small kitchen space with a fridge stocked with beverages, a coffee-making machine and an electric stove. It can have a small bathroom. And instead of big chairs and tables, you can get easily foldable tables and chairs so that when you are not having other people over to your studio, you can keep the chairs stacked away and save space. Furthermore, you can even have a small loft space where you can put down a mattress and double it up as a sleeping area.

In between space-saving design ideas, you can freely include your creative flair. How? You can choose to be eccentric with the way your tiny home looks from both inside and out. From the paint on the wall to the photo frames or designs adorning every corner of the studio, you can put your own twist to it. If you want, you can salvage recycled materials and decorate the exterior of your studio.

No matter how you decorate your studio tiny house, do not forget to hang a ‘do not disturb’ board on the door so that when you are in your creative space, nobody disturbs you. This will preserve the sanctity of your personal space.

Do you need any additional help setting up your own music/art studio? BOSS’ design team can help you with some ideas. So, check out our store for tiny house for sale and find what you are looking for.

Some Buying Vs. Building Questions to Ask Before Going Tiny

Tiny homes may be all the rage right now, but there are clear practical and lifestyle advantages of moving to a smaller space.

Tiny homes may be all the rage right now, but there are clear practical and lifestyle advantages of moving to a smaller space. Forget the money you’ll save and think about the freedom, flexibility and inspiration tiny living can give you. But before you can turn your dreams into reality, you’ll have to deal with some big questions regarding whether you should build or buy a tiny house. We’re here to help you with some of them.

“Should I build or buy my own tiny house?”

Building your tiny house will need ample time, some building and fitting chops as well as your full commitment to the job. Some tiny home converts swear by the sense of fulfilment that comes from building a home with their own hands. But if time or skills are letting you down, a number of prefabricated and professionally designed tiny homes could be the answer for you. Bring in a dash of DIY by picking a custom build instead, or doing the basic construction yourself and hiring experts for plumbing and wiring.

If you do go down the DIY route, you can choose from a variety of tiny house kits that will fit your lifestyle and space requirements. Tiny home kits range from simple container setups to cabin-like builds that come fully furnished as well. You also have the option of purchasing a pre-owned tiny house, if you’d like.

“Is it cheaper to buy a tiny house or build one?”

Coming down to brass tacks, building is definitely cheaper than buying. But you need to factor in your construction knowledge and DIY skills, or you might end up spending unnecessarily more on repairs and reconstructions in case a build goes wrong. Bringing in the professionals early can save you on maintenance costs as well.

A reputable tiny house builder working on an average size and base could charge you between $50,000 and $75,000. According to Good Money, building your own tiny home of a standard size (smaller than 186 square feet) can cost nearly $23,000.

“Should I build a permanent tiny house or buy one on wheels?”

First of all, consider your personal aspirations. While staying on the go may seem exciting and even a dream come true for some, you may want to feel more rooted after a few months or years on the move. A permanent tiny home will be safe and built up to code, and offers the opportunity to build on further and add to it. A tiny home on wheels, on the other hand, is a whole lifestyle in itself — and one that involves change, movement and utter simplicity. It can help you save money in lieu of property tax and lower maintenance as well. Know yourself and your needs, and choose accordingly.

There are some benefits of building a tiny home on a foundation, such as stability and freedom of design and redesign. However, even if you’re buying, you can still choose from a range of tiny house plans on wheels.

“What else should I know before buying or building a tiny house?”

Tiny living can be a pleasant and even welcome change, but a change nevertheless. Whether you build or buy, expect to put in a lot of time and effort, and a little bit of investment as well.

Those inclined to build their own can choose between a completely DIY build and a custom build, where you can work with a contractor to design your perfect home. Without a contractor, we’d highly recommend considering pre-built tiny house shells or tiny house kits, as some of the more technical construction or electrical tasks can get quite complicated. When you’re buying, make sure that your contractors are licensed and experienced.
