My name is Caitlin Stonham. I’m 23 and an undergraduate cultural anthropology student.
How big is your tiny house and how long did it take to build?
So, it took us four months to build, with Dave [my husband] working on it full-time, and me part-time. It’s 8×12-feet with a 2-foot porch, and a pitched roof that is 8′ high on one side and 7′ on the other (internal height).
What’s in your house? Any unique features?
This is a difficult question to answer, because it’s hard to know what to include. For example, we bought our first vehicle (a F250 truck) to tow the house; should that be included in the total cost? From start to finish, the entire project cost just under $20,000, but the structure itself probably accounted for about $15,000 of that, maybe less.
If you could sway NIMBers in one sentence, what would you say?
