What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About this project

What is How to Build Tiny? 

After nearly a decade, with more than 3 dozen tiny house builds under his belt, How to Build Tiny founder, Keith Schneider, decided to take his knowledge, skills, and passion to the masses. Through his tiny house business, Bohemian Cottages in Eugene Oregon, he built dozens of tiny houses for satisfied and enthusiastic customers. 

Year after year, Bohemian Cottages was booked solid a year or more in advance, working at capacity to build a few tiny homes per year. Business was booming, but Keith realized over time that something was missing from the tiny house movement. In his encounters with tiny house enthusiasts, he found a slew of DIY builders clamoring for high-quality information and skills. Yet, there was little to be found. Sure, there are blogs, and some DIY info-sharing and cute 23 minute TV shows. But there isn’t a place to go to learn the ins and outs – the nuts and bolts – the complete package of how to build a tiny house from the ground up. 

As a result, more than a few tiny house build projects go longer than planned, over budget, and under the quality the DIY builders had envisioned. As is his habit, Keith looked for a way to solve that problem. Why not provide the highest quality education, resources, community and training to tiny house DIYers? 

Who Are We?

We are a small group of expert professional tiny house & micro housing builders who have spent the last 8 years in the trenches of the tiny house movement. We have designed and built 3 dozen tiny houses – both mobile and stationary built - from the ground up. 

We've learned from trial and error, and by creating and improving upon successful designs. We've listened to client input. We have obsessively created elegant solutions to the difficult problems inherent in, and unique to, tiny house building. 

We deeply understand that tiny houses require a three-dimensional approach to space usage – as opposed to a traditional house relies on generous square footage. We have dealt with every technical, structural, logistical, financial and bureaucratic barrier imaginable. With How to Build Tiny, we're developing easily accessible, convenient courses and programs to share the hard-earned lessons we've acquired from nearly a decade of tiny house building, preceded by many years of conventional home building. 

What are We Developing?

How to Build Tiny will offer an intensive curriculum that can help savvy, resourceful people with the desire to build tiny, successfully do it themselves – and do it right the first time. 

How to Build Tiny will offer: 

  • Ten Online Courses including: 
  • 1. Logistics & Planning – Where to build. Choosing a permanent site or trailer. Selecting, customizing & designing floor plans. Dealing with location barriers. Creating a realistic timeline and budget. Becoming a humble student of tiny house building.

Meet Keith and learn tons while you laugh at him (he is the butt of most of his jokes). Meet like-minded big-brained tiny builders. Leave with your head stuffed with powerful knowledge...then go home and get your build on.
  • 3-D Blueprints of the Absolute Best Tiny House Designs We've Built and Seen: Blueprints are created in Google Sketch-up, an open-source format that is an industry standard free download which gives one the ability of infinitely customizable tiny homes. Every single layer of the tiny homes will be included; Foundation or trailer, subfloor, wall framing, roof framing, metal ties, plumbing, electrical, HVAC, exterior siding, interior sheathing, windows & doors, insulation. Each layer can be seen individually or made invisible to expose every other layer.

Day one will cover the basics of tiny house building – and day two will cover detailed skill building workshops. A wonderful benefit of the live events is meeting and creating your local team of like-minded tiny house builders with whom you can rely on for support and help for your project. This program includes an exhaustive manual, 3-D blueprints, step-by-step guidance covering every aspect of planning, design, location prep, materials & tools, avoiding common mistakes and building the tiny house successfully.

Where Did this Project Come From?

We have taught hour-long seminars to thousands of attendees.      We've heard their questions, seen their challenges, and felt the pain of their struggles. We heard their requests for better, trustworthy and reliable tiny house building information and support. We've seen the loudest voices on the internet dispensing the least accurate information. We've seen people pay thousands of dollars to attend seminars taught by someone who has only built one tiny house, who can't answer all their questions, and leave them feeling lost and wanting more. 

Many DIY tiny builders have a difficult time determining what information is reliable and useful, and what is not. Many DIY builders make avoidable but costly mistakes on small details and large design decisions. Many tiny house builders give up before their project is complete - and we believe this is an avoidable tragedy. Many people can successfully build, but have a difficult time dealing with government bureaucracies, inspectors, and subcontractors. We see a great need for a single source of trusted information on how to build a tiny space properly that will last generations. At How to Built Tiny we wish to empower the DIY community with every scrap of knowledge we have learned. It's our time to give back.

What’s Our Plan and Schedule? 

This summer, we plan to fulfill the majority of the rewards we’ve promised you, our lovely Kickstarter contributors. 

In September, we plan to launch the webinar series, the How to Build Tiny Online Courses and hold our first in-person event. 

What’s Our Budget? 

We are trying to raise $40,000 with this campaign. 

The funds will go toward: 

  • Course Production $20,000 
  • Marketing $5,000 
  • Online Course Hosting $2,500
  • Webinar Hosting $2,500 
  • Publishing $5,000 
  • 3-D Floor Plans Development $5,000 

Why Do We Care? Why Should You? 

We believe that tiny houses have already proven to be a powerful tool in solving the housing crisis here in the United States. We see the value of tiny houses as an affordable way to build a home in an increasingly unaffordable housing market. Not everyone needs a big house, and many people prefer to keep their home small so they can spend their resources on other things they value - beyond housing. Tiny homes can also house people who have difficulty finding homes in competitive rental markets. College is more affordable to students who have inexpensive housing options. Homeowners who build tiny houses in their back yard have an excellent source of reliable income for decades. Groupings of tiny homes can populate small city lots where, previously, only one home was built. Infill is an effective sustainable urban development strategy. In all, tiny houses are a way for more people to experience the pride of ownership and investment in place that owners get - and to enjoy the freedom that comes from owning one's own home.

Risks and challenges

Our challenges include making sure we have enough up-front funding to create top-quality online and in-person course resources. We have an excellent team on board to help us make sure this comes to fruition - including a brilliant videographer and a curriculum development expert. However, we also realize we're putting into a new format years' worth of experience. This does bring challenges. We also have an ambitious timeline. While we know the runway we have proposed is relatively brief, we also have planned to devote a huge amount of our time, energy, and resources into developing How to Build Tiny. This is a vision that will become a reality. This reality will further the tiny house movement in giant leaps forward.

We hope you're join us on this adventure!
