About this project
Hello Fellow Tiny House Enthusiasts,
As the tiny house movement sweeps the world, we want to provide a tool that will help people build their own tiny houses.
We at Nelson Tiny Houses have created this Kickstarter campaign to help us produce a "How to Build Your Own Tiny House" video guide showing people everything they need to know about building a tiny house – down to the tiniest detail. No matter if you have no experience or years of it, you will find these videos extremely helpful in making your tiny house dreams become a reality.
[UPDATE: Thanks to all our backers so far! We've already begun work on our first video. Check out our first update for details.]
The series will include 15 episodes all between 30-45 minutes long.
Ep. 1 Tools and Safety
HI FOLKS! We have finished and released our first episode to show people we are serious about this project and to give a taste of what they will look like. Check it out! https://youtu.be/4MsQdw3N8Y8
Ep. 2 Design and Layout (and using reclaimed material)
Ep. 3 Trailers and Foundations
Ep. 4 Framing and Sheathing
Ep. 5 Doors and Windows
Ep. 6 Siding, Flashing, and Roofing
Ep 7 Electricity and Solar
Ep. 8 Plumbing and Gas
Ep. 9 Insulation and Vapor barrier
Ep. 10 Drywall and Tongue&Groove (Choices for interior walls)
Ep. 11 Trim and Flooring
Ep. 12 Bathrooms (Toilets and Tiling)
Ep. 13 Kitchens (Counters, Cabinets, and Appliances)
Ep. 14 Custom Furniture (Murphy Beds and more)
Ep. 15 Wrapping things up (inc. Bylaws and Codes)
The series will follow us as we build a tiny house based on our Winter Wonderland house (watch video below). However, we will show you other projects in these videos so that in the end, you will be able to better build any style house you desire.
For our US backers, please note that the $130 pledge level works out to approximately $100 USD. The post-Kickstarter price for these videos will be $150 USD.
If you pledge at the $25 level or higher you will get access to a members-only Forum where members of our team and other builders will answer your questions and share tips.
Meet the Team
We recently put together a video introducing the staff at Nelson Tiny Houses
By backing this campaign, you are helping to make this movement grow by making the tiny house dream accessible to tons of people who cannot afford to hire someone or may not have the confidence they need to take the project on.....With these videos, we hope people sitting on the fence will jump off and start building!
Even donating a dollar will get us a bit closer to making the highest quality tiny house building videos we possibly can.
Thank you for your time and support! ☺
Warmly, Seth & the Nelson Tiny House team
Risks and challenges
Producing more than 8 hours of quality video content is a significant undertaking, but we aren't new to video. We've been producing Tiny House walkthrough videos for several years now which you can check out on our YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqmWTqARkddIn_pBJT0P6gQ
That said, to be safe, we have placed the release date in February to give us plenty of time to get the videos finished.
To make it work for all levels of experience, we plan to have people from all skill levels who want to or already have built their own tiny house review the product.
We also want to make sure we cover everything possible — we are open to changing the number of videos in the series and are open to suggestions for topics we may have missed. We hope to receive comments or suggestions from this campaign.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
