Setting up a plumbing system for a tiny home is much easier than a standard-sized home, but there are still some things to make sure you know before going about it. The part that will require the most effort is the planning and organization of all the needed components.

Plumbing for Homes

Hooked Up to Local Water/Sewer SysteIf you plan to have your tiny home on the grid, which means hooked up to the local water system in your area, your plumbing will be very similar to that of a standard home. There are two ways to get water inside of a tiny home that is connected to the main sewer line.

Hook it Straight into the Main Grid

The most thought-about option would be to create a system that is hooked into the city’s main water supply. For this option, you will want your tiny house to be built on a permanent foundation. This allows all of the plumbing to be placed in a permanent and safe location under the home.

Plug the Home into a Water Source RV Style

Your tiny house can still be mobile and access main water hookups in the same way that RV’s do at an RV park.

When purchasing a home, a borrower takes out a mortgage and agrees to a deal with their lender or bank lending out money. The lender gives the borrower money upfront to purchase the home and expects the borrower to sign a contract and agree to pay off that amount of money plus interest over a specific amount of time.

If you are unable to make payments and begin missing the date deadline to make the payments the bank can foreclose on the property and sell it as a way to compensate for missed funds on the money they lent out.

How does foreclosure work?

In the contract that is signed when you agree to take on a mortgage loan, there is a specified amount of money that was borrowed as well as a clearly communicated interest rate and the amount of expected monthly payment to pay back the loan.

Simply occupying a home does not mean that you fully and legally own it outright. When a homeowner has a mortgage technically the lending party owns a stake in the property until you make the final mortgage payment.

If you have missed several of the monthly agreed-upon payments a lender is allowed to begin the foreclosure process and there are two main ways in which they can carry out a foreclosure. These include a judicial foreclosure...
