CONSTRUCTION PROCESS

Our team at Mustard Seed has learned a lot about what it takes to build a great home. We invite you to take a closer look at our building process, craftsmanship, techniques, and materials that go into each Mustard Seed Tiny House.

To begin with, we are firm believers in a strong code for building. This ensures a safe and well-built home that will survive many decades of weather, road wear, and daily use. To ensure the highest standards, all of our tiny houses are inspected by NOAH (National Organization of Alternative Housing) for adherence to building codes and standards from:

NFPA – National Fire Protection Association
NEC – National Electrical Code
IRC – International Residential Code
NHTSA – National Highway & Transportation Safety Association (for Tiny Houses on Wheels)

Our building process has five primary stages.

1. Purchase Trailer
2. Framing & Drying In & Exterior Veneer
3. Utilities
4. Interior Veneer
5. Finish Carpentry and Trim


1. Purchase Trailer

This stage is when we determine the right trailer with the right specs for your special home. Our tiny house trailers are specifically designed to provide permanent strength and lifetime support for your custom built tiny house.

2. Framing

This is when you start seeing your home come to life! The frame of your tiny house is completed with sheathing, exterior veneer, siding, trim, vapor barrier, and roofing. We use the best materials to ensure long lasting performance for your tiny house. We are always on the lookout for new and proven technologies that may improve durability, lower maintenance, and extend the quality and longevity of your home.

3. Utilities

In this stage, we install the plumbing, low and high voltage wiring, HVAC, insulation and other behind-the-walls details such as lighting, switches, heaters, washer/dryer hookups, etc.

 
 

4. Interior Veneer

This stage sees us closing up the walls and putting finishing touches on your wall coverings, ceiling, fixtures, etc.

5. Finish Carpentry

In this final stage, our expertise in craftsmanship really shines. In finishing, we complete the interior trim, paint, cabinets, appliance installation, and all the other visual details that make your home not only one-of-kind, but beautiful. And beauty is in the details. When you run your hand across our cabinet surfaces and countertops, you’ll understand what we mean by quality craftsmanship.
