When it comes to tiny home builders, California likely has the most builders in a given state. But with tiny home builders popping up every week, it's more important than ever to choose the right builder for your tiny home.

We've done a lot of digging on this matter and having operated one of the biggest and well known tiny home design and building companies for nearly 10 years, we have a unique position to evaluate companies at a deeper level than most. From building science and techniques each manufacture uses to the quality of materials and even considering the process they guide their clients through there are so many factors to keep in mind when deciding if a tiny house builder is qualified and a good option.

One such builder we continue to come back to is California Tiny House. They are constantly leading the way when it comes to high-quality content, designs, and tiny homes.

As passionate advocates of tiny homes, they've helped in tremendous was to move the conversation of legalization of tiny homes forward across California and the U.S by working with cities and counties to develop code language that is tiny home friendly.

They're also working on (and nearly done with) a complete DIY course that will bring high quality education resources and video tutorials showing you exactly how to build a tiny home that's safe and legally accepted and certified. Combining their building and design experience with collaborations from state legislation this course will be one to keep an eye out for. We'll be doing a deep dive on their DIY Course in the near future.

Some of their core services include custom and semi-custom tiny homes. They've established a very nice process for new clients to design and choose exactly what they are looking for in their dream tiny home — which is so vital when going tiny!

In addition they occasionally have model tiny homes for sale at discounted priced. Currently they have the Lakehouse Cabin for sale at just $69,395.

At the end of the day, the builder you choose is one of the most important parts of your tiny home journey so make sure you spend the proper time researching and learning about your tiny house builder. And of course, don't forget these other vital steps in the process to successfully buying or building your tiny home.
