Tiny House Shells are built to last

Tiny houses are vehicles, not buildings, so they need to be built strong to be safe to tow. Even if you only ever tow it once! That’s why Fred developed his Unified Construction Method® that conceives of the tiny house and trailer as one unified whole. It goes way beyond building Code to secure the tiny house against wind pressure and vibrations that the tiny house will be subject to.

That way, all you need to do is focus on fitting out your new tiny house exactly as you like it! Rest assured, your house is structurally sound and oh so customisable by you.
