Quality you can SEE!
Like RV’s and tractor trailers, your tiny house will be open stress factors equal to the combination of category three cyclone and a magnitude 8 earthquake. Never completely satisfied with the safety and quality of offerings available, Mike Bedsole (Founder of Tiny House Chattanooga) designed a premium grade product, Foundation Trailers. Foundation Trailers (TM) are now not only used for all Tiny House Chattanooga homes, they’re being sought by tiny house builders and tiny house DIY-ers nation wide.
Small Change. BIG Impact.
Building for several years, we realized a flaw that needed to be changed: proper insulation. The flange on the side of the trailer that brings the width out to the 96” (8ft) is 6” wide on each side of the trailer. With walls being 3.5” thick, one is left with 2.5” of uninsulated space where its just bare steel and subfloor. This might seem like just a “little thing” but that could be the difference in your electric bill, a drain on your solar system or the difference in staying warm or cool!
To fix that issue, we dropped the side flange 3 1/8”. You can now fill that void with insulation. After installing the subfloor, the entire floor surface is insulated. Now, it’s easy to bolt down your walls and easy to insulate!
