New Hampshire Tiny Home Building Considerations
As one of the northern-most states, New Hampshire can face some harsh weather. Investing in high quality insulation for your New Hampshire 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.
Investing in solar power for your New Hampshire tiny home is also a great idea. We recommend a ground mounted array for a semi-permanent tiny home setup. Housing the heavy batteries in a separate outbuilding will allow you to make the most of your New Hampshire tiny homes precious square footage while living a more off-grid lifestyle if you choose.
Another key design element for your New Hampshire tiny home is a deck. We recommend a combination of sunning space as well as a covered area for hotter New Hampshire days. The covered portion of your deck can also be screened if you’d like. Your builder should be able to assist with your overall site plan and may even be able to create a set of deck construction documents to be used for building your deck on-site.
