The Tumbleweed DIY Book...

The Tumbleweed DIY Book of Backyard Sheds and Tiny Houses: Build your own guest cottage, writing studio, home office, craft workshop, or personal retreat - Jay Shafer

This is a great book to read if you're serious about building your own tiny house. It has a lot of floor plans and great photos with design ideas. Some of the houses are on trailers, but some are on foundations. I love how this book gives you options. It has a lot of instructions on how to build a tiny house. It covers clearing the building site, safety gear, cutting down trees, removing logs, stumps and roots, building the foundation on poles, roofing, raising walls, siding, windows, doors and trim. I had no idea how to cut down a tree or remove a stump until I read this book. It doesn't cover plumbing, electrical or finishing the interior, so you'll need separate books for that. I'd still recommend this book to anyone researching tiny houses.
