Harry's Home Improvement Blog

Hello, my name is Harry and this is my home improvement blog. Welcome! On this blog, I will be discussing many different home improvement and construction topics. I should explain that I am not a professional contractor. However, I have just come to the end of a home renovation project which took over 2 years to complete. During that time, I worked with dozens of different contractors in order to get my house into shape. I have spent hours working alongside plumbers, electricians, surveyors and roofing specialist. I learnt so much about their different trades that I decided to start this blog.


Ways Mobile Scaffolding Can Help With Tiny Home Construction

Tiny home construction is primarily a do it yourself project. Most people who take on this type of project either have some limited construction experience, or they want to learn as they go. This not only means learning the construction techniques associated with the tiny home, but also learning which equipment may be ideal for a smaller building model such as the one you are likely considering. This is where mobile scaffolding may be useful, but before you hire or buy the scaffolding, you will need to know how it can help you overall.

Installing Gutter and Rainwater Catches

One aspect of tiny home building that you will find the need for mobile scaffolding is with gutter and rainwater catch installation. Though most of these options are prefabricated, they are done in segments and have to be attached in some way to the roofline of your tiny home. This means placing the hooks, nails, and fasteners as well as placing the gutter or rain catches themselves. If you are using a ladder for this, you may end up spending more time just going up and down the ladder as well as moving it. A mobile scaffolding will help you cover more territory before having to move to another portion of the tiny home.

Placing the Walls

There are some tiny home project plans that are handled in sections. What this means is that you are building a wall at a time and placing it on the trailer base of the tiny home. At that point, you will be securing the walls and then securing them to each other. This can be incredibly difficult if you are doing this with only the help of friends or family and no equipment. A mobile scaffolding will allow you to have at least two people higher than the other people assisting with the wall placement. This gives more stability as you raise the walls and secure them. In most cases the mobile scaffolding will cover the vast majority, if not all, of the wall area as well.

Building the Loft

Most tiny home plans utilize a loft area for either a sleeping option or for extra storage. This is a part of the tiny home building process that can not be prefabricated easily. It is also above the normal reaching level of most things in the home. This means that a mobile scaffolding may be the ideal option for building and placing the loft easily and safely. You may think that a scaffolding hire may not be able to help you because you still need an option that can fit through the tiny home door. The truth is, most scaffolding hires will have a mobile option that folds down and can easily fit into the area.

By keeping the ways that mobile scaffolding can help with your tiny home construction in mind, you can better put this piece of equipment to a multifunction use. If you are ready to move forward, contact your local mobile scaffolding hire for pricing and hire information.
