gambrel plans

I can’t promote the choice of a gambrel roof enough. It gives space and style (especially with the addition of dormers). For those of you who have inquired about plans for the gambrel roof on the tiny, this looks like just the ticket HERE. Enjoy!

    1. Sorry, the cost list was at the time of the blog post when the tiny was still unfinished. I found the beetle kill through a local craigslist add and paid about 400 total, if memory serves. Hope that helps :)

  1. Where do you park your tiny house?
    I’m so fascinated with tiny house living… I would love one of my own but I’m not sure where I can park it. I live in Northern California.
    Thank you for ur feedback :0)
    Congrats on ur house it is awesome!

    Take care,
    Lisa M.

    1. Thanks, Lisa! Currently, I am parked in the backyard of my grandmother’s house. I am incredibly fortunate, as I know that can be one of the largest hurdles for many people. However, I know that Cal is replete with options (especially in the Sonoma area, of course).

      Best of luck!!!

    1. We actually didn’t really have plans. We started with the $90 Fencil Tumbleweed plans and just modified based on what materials we could procure. With that said, if I were to build again, I would a lot of time in the planning stages. There are so many unique, space-saving ideas out there. But, we just took the Tumbleweed basic and sort of figured it out as we went :)

  2. Hello, did you actually use the plans given in the link you posted? If so, how in the world did you get your angles so precise? 112.49 degrees? Yikes. I’m starting my build in the next month or so and this is the number one thing keeping me up at night, but the added space seems to be worth the work. Advise? :(

    1. We actually didn’t use these plans (I just thought they were helpful enough to share). We made a VERY tight jig for the trusses and fit each one in and, essentially, built it in the jig (it definitely took two people to pull it out once it was completed). Hope that helps!

  3. Also, would you be willing to give some insight as to how you secured the giant half moon window? I’ve heard from others that it requires all sorts of welding and metal framework, but yours doesn’t appear to have that. Can it be done with just wood?

    1. Mine is just secured by wood. I think if you look through the photos of the build in progress, there is one or two that show the structure before the interior wall was put up. It was sturdy enough to go down the highway at 55 mpg, so I think it’s just fine :)

  4. Okay, just one more question! Do you recall the specs of the trailer? Such as between the wheel width, length, and GVW? Just trying to make sure mine will be long/wide/strong enough. Thank you!:)
