Can You Use Steel Studs In a Tiny Home?
Can you use steel studs in a tiny home? When we picture tiny homes, many people often associate them with wood. However, as tiny homes become more popular, we are seeing more and more of them incorporating steel studs.
In this article, we are going to share some expert thoughts on if you can use steel studs in a tiny home.
Are Steel Studs Used for Tiny Homes?
While many builders recommend using wooden studs for the walls, some people choose to install steel studs instead. It is perfectly normal to use steel studs for a tiny home, and they provide some unique benefits for those who incorporate them.
Why Choose Steel Studs For a Tiny Home?
There are several reasons why you might want to consider using steel studs in your tiny home construction.
- They provide extra support.
- They can last longer than wooden studs.
- They offer more protection from natural elements.
In addition, the cost of wood has been rising drastically compared to steel. Therefore, the upfront costs on these materials are very comparable. When this is the case, steel almost always makes for a better long-term investment, given the minimal maintenance and added durability from the elements.
