Wilderwise Two Story Tiny House

Wilderwise tiny house

Wilderwise is taking a custom approach to just about every aspect of their tiny home builds.  From the custom aluminum trailer that doubles as the floor foundation to the aluminum and SIP frame.

What really sets these tiny homes apart is the fact that they expand and have a full-height second floor that is set up once they are parked and in place.

In this interview, Ethan asks Arya how the homes are built, how the second-floor expansion works, and what makes them modular.

Aloha: Has any of your members designed a tiny home using heavy duty pallet racks? If so, I’d like to talk with them. The engineering load is already established and can easily go 16’high 12’x24′ with full 12’x14’x7’loft=432sq’and is expandable–then use pre-wired/windows/doors (IMP) R-22/24 insulated metal panels. I’m trying to build affordable units allowing young people and seniors to stay in Hawaii. I need some help.
