Tiny homes are primarily a do-it-yourself type of project. You can buy them ready made, but they generally do not have the features you are looking for, or they cost far more than a traditional build your own option would. When you take on the project, you may start wondering about the types of custom work that can be done on the tiny home to give you features that are not listed as normal on the blueprints. Here are some custom metal cutting options that you may want to consider and benefit from.
Metal Door and Cabinet Tracks
One of the most customized areas in a tiny home is storage. This can be storage in one area or throughout the tiny home. Since the area is so limited, this means getting a bit creative with how you handle storage. One method is to use storage that is fit on a sliding track.
This may be a cabinet that slides out of a wall when not in use, or something as upgraded as a bed that is on a lift system instead of just having it as a stationary loft. This means doors and track systems that may not fit standard measurements. Customized metal cutting contractors can help greatly with this and get you what you need instead of having to cut down something pre-made that may not function as well.
Water Tank Designs
In many blueprints and designs, there is no water tank. If there is, it is a small one and kept under a small sink in the kitchen area or behind the shower area. This is very similar to what you would see in an RV. In a tiny home, you may elect to have the water tank be part of a greywater system, not be made of plastic or other similar material, or you may have a specific design that you want cut in order to fit a specific area. Traditional options will not do in these cases. A metal cutting contractor can work with you to design the water tank you want, with the features you need.
Roofing designs may seem like the last thing you need to worry about with your tiny home build. The truth is, if you are going to be using the tiny home as a primary residence or for a large amount of travel and a residence, then the roofing will need to have several key points. For example, you will need it to drain properly, possibly be retractable over porches and overhangs, and you may want it to be durable enough to withstand various weather conditions. This is something you will want a metal cutting contractor to handle as a customized design for your needs rather than try to find a pre-made form that may have only some of the points you need and not all.
These are three main reasons and benefits to using a metal cutting contractor for your tiny home. If you would like to know other ways the metal cutting contractor can help with your tiny home build, contact them directly for pricing and estimates.
