Benefits of Going with a Custom Tiny Home Design

Tommy Franklin

If you are considering a tiny home as an office, guest house, alternative to a caravan, or as a full-time living situation, then you likely have seen the many home designs available. Since tiny homes are generally a DIY project, the blueprints and home designs are created to be simple as well as minimalistic. The issue with this is that the current designs may not fit your needs or vision. If you have a specific tiny home vision, you may want to consider overlooking the more generic design plans and going with a custom home design instead. Here are a few of the benefits to this.

Narrowing Down Design Ideas

You will likely have multiple ideas for how you want to utilize the most space out of your tiny home. These may have come from videos of other tiny homes, plans that you have combined into your idea list, or other sources. The issue with this is that some of these ideas can be combined into one concept while others may not be workable for the size of the tiny home you are considering. A custom home design consultant can take your various ideas and narrow them down to multi-purpose options and options that will conform to the size of tiny home you are considering.

Environmental Concerns

Most of the basic tiny home designs are not geared for specific weather conditions. They are built with travel in mind, rather than long-term exposure to a certain environment. If you are planning on keeping your tiny home in a specific set of weather conditions, such as an area that sees rain or snow the majority of the year, then you will want a tiny home that can stand up to those weather conditions. A custom home design consultant can suggest upgrades that would hold up under certain conditions. For example, you may have a tiny home plan that suggests a lightweight metal for your roofing, such as aluminum. This is fine for hotter weather conditions, but you may want a thicker heavier metal if you will be in colder weather environments with heavy snow and other cold weather conditions.

Space Constraints

When you look at tiny home designs, you will notice that most have a loft bedroom. This loft area is one of the areas that many people try to change because of the constraints of the area. This is especially true for long term living where the small space can become increasingly difficult to maneuver. Storage may also be an issue that needs to be addressed depending on how you plan to utilize your tiny home. Custom home designs can help you create a space that is easy to maneuver, gives you what you need, and utilizes all the space in ways a general tiny home design may not.

These are just a few of the benefits to using a custom home design option for your tiny home. For more information, contact a business such as A.P.T. Design Drafting & Construction Pty Ltd.
