Requires effective climate control


Building Considerations.

Arkansas weather can fluctuate immensely. Because of this, it is important to ensure that your tiny home is built with dependable materials. A major investment we make in the quality of our tiny homes is insulation. All of our homes are constructed with 2×4 framing and spray foam insulation. Spray foam has by far the highest R-value available for the tiny home application, and wooden construction allows less air infiltration than steel framing when the temperature rises. Additionally, we use LP SmartSide for a low-maintenance and durable siding that won’t warp or change with fluctuating temperatures (and which we can do in any custom color(s) you like).

Tiny homes are a great option and growing trend here in Arkansas. Wind River Tiny Homes is located in Tennessee, but since we ship our homes all across the country, we build with different conditions in mind. What should you look for in a tiny home bound for Arkansas?

Of course the Arkansas heat can be sweltering, but that’s no worry, we’ve taken this into consideration. Our tiny homes have equally effective climate control and insulation. At Wind River, we’ve already thought about systems design in your tiny home so you don’t have to. Ask us about our HVAC systems and other options for dehumidifying your home. All of this works in tandem to keep the hot out and cold in, making your Arkansas tiny home a relaxing oasis.

Our Arkansas tiny home clients often ask us about their concerns being located in a high wind zone. The truth is that our homes are often more rigid than site construction, since they are designed to move down the highway at 60 mph, not factoring in headwinds. Our homes are also spray foam insulated, which is a product that expands as it is applied to fill all the space between the studs. This adds to the rigidity of the home in a big way. Additionally, all of our trailers have D-rings that are welded onto the main frame and are meant to be used to tie the home down on site. For more information on best practices for site setup, make sure to read our blog post on Setting Up Your Tiny Home – Blocking, Anchoring, and Skirting.  In certain cases, you may give thought to design aspects like window size and placement. We have a client located in a valley between 14-ers in Colorado that chose to downsize the windows on the side of the home that receive the highest winds. Their success story proves that Wind River homes are engineered to withstand these zones.


Arkansas didn’t get this nickname for no reason, the natural beauty of this state has drawn adventurous people from all around. Arkansas is a very welcoming to an adventurous lifestyle, and Wind River builds homes to match. Below are some great resources to get you on your way to tiny house living in Arkansas.
