Minnesota Tiny Homes Building Considerations
As part of the Midwest, Minnesota experiences all four seasons and can face some harsh weather. Investing in high quality insulation for your Minnesota tiny home is one of the best investments you can make. The better insulated your home, the easier it will be to maintain a comfortable temperature year-round with maximum energy efficiency.
At Wind River, all our homes are constructed with 2×4 framing and closed cell spray foam insulation, which has by far the highest R-value available for the tiny home application. It also ensures superior structural rigidity—especially important for tiny homes on wheels—and acts as an additional vapor and water barrier. The wooden construction also allows less air infiltration than steel framing.
For any non-foundation structure, free moving air under the home can affect your indoor heating and cooling. We use spray foam insulation and cover the underside of your tiny home with a critter barrier to ensure there is no disruption to the insulation and reduce the risk of any issues. Additionally, there are endless skirting and decking options that can not only add curb appeal for your home, but act as a further critter and weather barrier.
