Welcome to the Small Home
• Feel free to ask and answer questions about building smaller homes, cottages, and cabins.
• Click red Go To Forum at top or bottom to go directly to the Forum.
• Please note: Our member projects include those that have been built with professional engineering expertise, that follow the various applicable codes and have been inspected for compliance. Some of the projects displayed here do follow good practices and the code in general, but have been built in areas with lax or nonexistent code enforcement.
Other projects in these areas of lax or zero enforcement may contain techniques that can compromise structural integrity and personal safety. As a result, some projects illustrated here may contain questionable design or construction techniques and being posted on the forum is no guarantee of suitability for your project.
If in doubt, get experienced design and building advice. Check with your local building department to determine what codes apply to your project.
