Doing research is a big part of the process of building a house. I'm no experienced builder, but my common sense tells me that you have to do your homework before you get your hands into the project. About 90% of building this house will be framing. And framing is the easiest part. I am very visual and like a lot of pictures to teach me how to do something. I have been going to the library and picking books and DVD's up on framing, sustainable living, gardening, plumbing, electrical, renewable energy, and basic house building skills.
I started to think a lot about living in this tiny house and i pictured myself in it living simple. I pictured a garden outside that i would use to grow fruit trees, vegetables, eggs, bees ( for honey and pollination of flowers and plants), and even chickens and grain. I would grow completely organic and even the large over loads of food i could sell.
Plumbing looks like it might be the toughest part of this hole project. Electrical should be pretty easy since i will be hooking up to solar panels and a wind turbine. Water usage should be easy enough as to filling gallon jugs and placing them above the shower and kitchen sink, although i need to figure out a plan to build a well and filter rain collection.
If I find any videos or tutorials on any of these processes i will post them.
