Tiny homes are gaining popularity for a good reason. The seemingly small square footage gets maximized, allowing for a different kind of home — one that still has all of the necessities but is eco-friendly and comfortable. The trend for smaller living quarters isn’t about subscribing to the latest fashion in home design. Instead, it’s about a new housing movement that prioritizes smart design, economization and a smaller footprint on the land.

These tiny homes come in all shapes and sizes and in a variety of materials and looks that make them desirable simply for their uniqueness. Tiny houses can be built out of anything from a truck bed to a train car, with many variations in-between.

Here are three different materials for the exterior of a tiny home: 



Steel 

Steel is produced in many forms. Think steel train cars, shipping cartons and the frame of your favorite car. These seemingly average products can be used as a base for a fully-customizable and interesting home. In the case of a large shipping container, the container is built and coated with marine-grade paint to slow the aging process. Its ability to withstand the natural elements, as well as it's desirable, rectangular shape, makes it a perfect choice for beginning construction on a steel-faced tiny home.

I used the plans at WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG to build my own – I highly recommend you visit that website and check their plans out too. They are detailed and super easy to read and understand unlike several others I found online. The amount of plans there is mind-boggling… there’s like 16,000 plans or something like that for tons of different projects. Definitely enough to keep me busy with projects for many more years to come haha. Go to WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG if you want some additional plans :)
