When Four Lights Tiny House Company held its first workshop in California in February 2013, I attended the two-day classroom workshop and three-day build led by Jay Shafer and Daniel Bell. I purchased the construction plans for Four Lights’ Gifford house. Special construction considerations were implemented for traveling.  My house as it sits today weighs 9,300 pounds.  It’s a bit heavy for a 16 footer; the weight is due in part  to a commercial grade (24 gauge) metal roof, oak flooring, and a heavy duty trailer.  It’s overbuilt, but I knew I was going to travel quite a bit in it and wanted it to be sturdy.
