It’s so neat to watch a tiny house build in action!

We get to follow this one from the planning stages all the way to the finished home.

You may remember Alan from our blog post about the tiny log cabin he built in upstate New York. He sold that and is now at work on his new project, a tiny house on a foundation.  He shared the plans with our meetup group, Tiny House and ADU’s in NJ/PA, and will be sending pictures and updates throughout his journey. To see the next phase of Alan’s build, click here.

Plans for Alan's tiny house.

The cabin will be 16.6×27 with a 9×10 loft

Here are some pics on the beginning of construction.

This is the cleared lot with the foundation marked out.

This is the start of the foundation.

Alan explained, “I used tube forms and tube bases for my foundation pillars. It saved time because it can be back filled right away and when the concrete is poured it’s done.”

These pics are of the water well.

Alan told us, “I had a local guy come out and use his divining rods to locate a source of water. I was skeptical but when I dug the well the water was exactly where he said it would be.  The concrete rings are called well tiles. They are to line the well and prevent the well from caving in; you can use plastic pipe but I prefer the tiles because the 36″ diameter stores more water in the well.”

We can’t wait to see the next stages of this THOF build!
