Builders calculators and estimators

What you can find on the Internet to help you construct your own tiny house on wheels is nothing less than amazing!

Given enough time, even an amateur carpenter can build their tiny home in NH, MA, ME, VT, CT, RI and NY with enough patience and energy (and hopefully a few eager-to-help friends and family!).
These online calculation and estimating tools below are really handy. Try your hand at a couple small projects, such as creating a table and/or shelving, to get the sense of how to use them correctly. A dog house is a great first project - if you have a pet that will also appreciate tiny quarters. In any case, you'll be glad to have had the practice. Please let us know if the links fail, as might happen over time.
We love this first one since materials cost can vary by hundreds to thousands of dollars depending on your tiny house construction region (as can labor costs):
