Installing Purlins on the Tiny House

Posted on by Bryce Posted in Tiny House Build |

Purlins are horizontal support members that sit on top of the rafters. The roofing material is then fixed onto the purlins. In this video, Alan from Bio Build Ltd shows us the process behind fastening the purlins to the steel rafters of our Tiny House.

For this job we are using wooden (lawson cypress) purlins that measure 45x70mm. We chosen wooden purlins to assist in adding a thermal barrier between the roof and the steel. Lawson Cypress is sustainably grown here in New Zealand. It’s a very lightweight wood with a high tensile strength which makes it perfect for use in a Tiny House. Our Lawson Cypress is sourced from St. Lukes Timber. Read more
