Tiny House Reading List

Here is a list of books that are sitting on my bookshelf and on my iPad right now.  I will add more as I buy/read them…since I’m doing more blogging these days there will probably also be a blog post that I will link to.

The Small House Book
The original tiny house book written by Jay Schaffer. This should be the first book you add to your library.
Humble Homes, Simple Shacks, Cozy Cottages, Ramshackle Retreats, Funky Forts: And Whatever the Heck Else We Could Squeeze in HereAnother classic tiny house book by Deek Diedrickson from Relax Shacks. Deek specializes in using reclaimed materials in his tiny creations.
The Cabin: Inspiration for the Classic American GetawayThis is one of my personal favorite books on cabins. Many of the designs are on the larger side but there are a ton of good ideas here.
DEWALT Carpentry and Framing Complete Handbook (Dewalt Trade Reference Series)This is an excellent (modern) reference book on framing. Great diagrams make this book well suited for DIY’ers.
