    Nice house! I hope to one day build one myself. Currently Anyhow, I had a question about cutting off the railing of your flatbed. From my understanding this is structural, and that flatbeds that don’t have it are reinforced elsewhere. Have you looked into this? I wondered if the house itself would reinforce it?

    @Micah, when you say structural which direction of stress are you thinking the side rails would support? They don’t do anything significant for a load pressing toward the earth. As far as I know, they’re just to keep things from falling off the sides. The load rests on the axles. When I had mine cut off, no one said anything about structural support.

    Gary, I don’t know of anything in Fort Worth. If there’s a particular part of the process you’re unfamiliar with, there are resources online. There are a few different tiny house books. I found basic framing and wiring books pretty helpful. I got copies from the library but if you want your own you can get them at any home improvement store or amazon. I think Tumbleweed only comes through the state once or twice a year and it’s usually to Austin. Plus, they’re showing how to build their style of homes and they’re pretty pricey. My video course is intended to substitute for a workshop too.

    I will be visiting Austin in a couple of weeks and would love to come and view the tiny houses in person, that your company has built. I looked for an address on the siteā€¦ Please let me know where the houses are in the city and if I need to schedule an appointment to see them. Thanx!!

    Meg, I only built one and then sold it to an out-of-state buyer.

    I just looked through your photos for your Tiny House. Awesome job! I have a question for you. What is the black box on the ceiling in this pic:

    I also noticed that you had a powerbar attached to the ceiling near the ladder for your loft. Was this to avoid creating a cold spot by putting a junction box on the ceiling? If so, you probably could have run wiring through the floor of the loft, and used a recessed floor junction box like this:

    Regardless, very well done!
