My experience with this kind of building allows customers to ask for special features, like windows that match their home, to have the interior left unfinished on the inside so elctrical outlets and switches, etc, can be placed where needed, and I’m sure other features could be requested.

Dix claims all of their portable barns, sheds, cabins and garages are built to hold up under heavy use and provide a lifetime of service. I think there is a place for several different levels when it comes to value, but it is rare to run across something that good. Ive also hear that the windows need to be sealed better, may leak around openings – damaging interior finishes. The recent addition of the prefab shed kit instructional video is the latest in the ongoing work of Sheds Unlimited to provide means by which customers can save hard earned dollars in tough economic times. The second place that you can browse to get a couple of things about pre built sheds is eBay. Most of the buildings are for storage, livestock and gardening, but three of their designs may make a great tiny house: the Lofted Porch, the Portable Casita and the Mini Cottage.


Not everyone has the time or skills to build something like this but they can tackle simple jobs like extra strapping on the trusses, etc, if they felt they were necessary. The inside of the building is still open with exterior stud walls that can be left unfinished, or you can finish the interior any way you want.
They are anchored tightly to their trailers and the external treatments are often chosen for their wind resistance. While most folks don’t move their tiny houses often, it can be a real benefit to have that option. A pre-built shed may or may not be sized to fit within the legal limit of a trailer, and it may not have been built with high winds in mind. So if your intention to have mobility, greater care should be taken when selecting the right pre-built shell.With all that said, pre-built sheds are an option for some future tiny homeowners.
Take notes about the construction details so you can compare later since after a while they will all look the same. The plywood (or OSB) add strength to the structure while the siding provides weather proofing. These materials can speed construction time and lower costs, but they put less material between you and the weather.Is there a layer of plywood (or OSB) decking between the roofing material and rafters?
In many sheds you’ll look up and see the exterior roofing screwed right to the rafters. Just like adding extra layers to the walls, extra layers in a roof protect you better from the weather.Are the windows and doors good enough to use in a home? Windows and doors are expensive so if your intention is to save money, try avoiding buying a shed shell with doors and windows that you’ll have to replace later.Is any house wrap used in the walls? House wrap adds a breathable but weather resistant layer to walls and can significantly improve your home’s energy performance.Is there any roofing felt used in the roof?
All sheathing, on the inside and out, should be connected to framing for fire protection and strength.Does the building have the right number of fire exists, as defined by your communities local code? The opinions they express are their own and may or may not agree with mine – or yours.
If our home were not paid for we would go that route for sure!Reply Gil Palmer saysJul 16, 2013 at 3:43 pm This is one of the best posts ever on your site. I have read that elderly folks are buying these sheds, putting in kitchenettes, bathrooms, etc and majorly reducing their cost of living. We live in a small 464 sq ft cabin built on site by the same company that built the shed and brought it out. We finished it, doing all the work ourselves except for the electrical rough-in and the plumbing, which included hooking to our septic system. The wall AC unit also has heat.You can find photos at the link below if you would like to see it. Put it on 5 acres and completely finished it out myself from the 8 ft slider to the vaulted ceiling. In other words constructive critique is welcome, destructive mean-spirited judgements are not permitted.
