let MTL DO THE HEAVY LIFTING FOR YOUR PERFECT SHELL.
For those out there that love the idea of a DIY tiny home, but don't have the heavy machinery or heavy lifting capability to frame a whole home themselves, Modern Tiny Living is happy to offer shell construction services. A tiny home shell costs only 1/3 of what a fully custom designed and built tiny home would cost, and you can have the peace of mind that your home has been built on the perfect trailer foundation and has the structural integrity to stand the test of time - and the open road.
Why SHOULD I HAVE MY SHELL BUILT BY MTL?
A typical shell will take a total of 200-300 man hours of work to complete. Even for the experienced builder, it is a massive project. For the first time builder or novice craftsman, it can be much more. At Modern Tiny Living, our team can complete your shell in a week, give or take.
We've also found that most individuals building a DIY home do not have a dedicated space to build, such as a warehouse or a facility. As a result, people find themselves exposed to the elements, weather and other oft-forgotten challenges associated with construction. For many, it's much more convenient to have your shell built by a builder, after which you can finish the interior in the comfort of your own home, on your own time.
Along with the experience and warehouse space, many DIY'ers forget the most basic of construction needs: tools. Oftentimes a DIY builder will have to spend thousands simply to buy, borrow or rent the needed tools to build a safe and structurally sound dwelling. For those with the experience, tools and location, we applaud you for building your own shell! For the rest, we're here to help!
