Tiny House Mobile Small Home on Wheels

tiny-house-on-wheels-lightweight-high-strength-greenPatented Sing Panels have been used in many industries such as home building, boat building even in the aircraft industry.

Making its way to the forefront recently are advancements being recognized by the tiny house community. These tiny house designs are springing up all over the United States (and the world) in the smallest footprints on existing properties, or being transported and towed, like a portable house, small modular home or tiny house on wheels.

Introducing the Sing Tiny House

Don’t Be Framed

Sing Core products including the Sing Sandwich and Sing Panel have a built-in torsion box structure that delivers superior strength over long spans. With this Eco-friendly building material, the most environmentally conscious affordable home advocate can build a tiny house without the traditional 2×4 or 2×6 frame.

huge-rafters-loft-roof-structure-supported-by-inch-and-one-quarter-frameless-sing-panel-lgihtweightArchitecturally, not having to frame your structure yields more precious useable space inside your small home plans. Many Sing Tiny Houses have been built without a frame using 1 ¼” thick Luan skin Sing Sandwich panels. See the structural strength of these 1.25 inch walls in the photo to the right. That is a wall that is 1.25 inches thick compared to the 2×4 wall that is at least 4.5 inches thick, this is wasting 3.25 inches and not as strong as sing Core’s 1.25 inch wall. (Note that the loft beams and roof structure are supported by frameless  1 ¼” thick Luan skin Sing Sandwich panels only. That’s high-strength!)

Space-age Technology

What makes patented Sing Core products so different from all other building materials is the unique composite nature combining the best technology of an improved wood torsion box design, recycled foam and surface materials that yield the most spectacular results for upscale tiny houses.

Sing Core products out-perform other composite materials (see comparison) used in aerospace and marine applications in terms of lightweight, high strength and Eco-friendly. This new technology can withstand high winds and extreme weather conditions without compromise.

Why Use Sing Core?

#1 – More Useable Space – When building small homes, maximizing each square inch can be huge in performance and enjoyment of your tiny house. (1.25 inch walls vs. 4.5 inch walls).

how-to-make-a-sing-tiny-house-completely-out-of-sing-honeycomb-panels#2 – High Strength – More rigid and strong than other materials. In fact, Sing Core has been tested at Washington State University at 660 PSI, stronger than steel pound-for-pound.

#3 – Lightweight – Sing Tiny Houses are approximately half the weight of other tiny houses built with traditional building materials. For instance, a Sing Tiny House weighs only 2,600 pounds (easy to tow on trailer) compared to equivalent 5,000 pound tiny house.

#4 – Insulation – Our pre-insulated panels take the time and expense out of insulating your tiny house, and can achieve 6.5 R-values per sq. inch.

#5 – Choices – Customizing options for your tiny house are almost unlimited. You can select any surface material for the interior and/or exterior of each panel including wood, plywood, aluminum, metal, cement board, etc…

#6 – Easy to Build – We can build a Sing Tiny House complete with floors, walls and roof in three-and-a-half hours. The average, inexperienced do-it-yourselfer might take two days to build. Finish-work can take a couple of weeks, depending on your home design.

How to Build

If you are not handy, you could find a local wood worker to build your frameless Sing Tiny House, make sure that your contractor is open-minded and willing to take on the challenge of embracing this new building method. If you are willing to learn, most anyone can build a Sing Tiny House.

Connecting Panels

Many methods are available to assemble your panels. Some people chose to use pre-installed cam-locks (especially if the project might need to be disassembled and reassembled), other methods include traditional screws or nails and we like the performance of urethane-glued assembly (which is stronger than other methods).

Here are some photos of a urethane-glued Sing Tiny House work in progress:

Making it Even Easier

Sing Core can help to make the assembly of your tiny house quick and easy by pre-installing window and doors to your specifications in panels for your convenience.

How We Ship

We ship by freight using a shipping broker that finds the best price and route to reach your destination safely and on-time.

Cost to Build a House

Compared to standard plywood, Sing Sandwich and Sing Panels are going to be more expensive, but if you figure in the cost of materials including framing, insulation, plywood, interior and exterior facings plus labor costs in added time and equipment costs, the Sing solution wins out. And that doesn’t even consider all the added benefits of having a Sing Tiny House.

How to Order

Simply count up how many Sing Sandwich or Sing Panels that you need according to your tiny house plans. For instance, an 8×16 tiny house might use 22 4×8 Sing Sandwich panels.

  • 4 pieces 4×8 floor
  • 12 pieces 4×8 wall
  • 6 pieces 4×8 roof

What Are Sing Honeycomb Panels?

Sing Honeycomb is a sandwich panel composite material with built in structural grids. Our grids are made of vertical grain renewable veneer wood fiber, and foam. We construct our Singcore in a fashion similar to torsion box technology most commonly found in the airplane industry. This technology is what allows our panels remain strong, lightweight, and flat without denting, cracking, and warping. See a comparison here. Inventor Peter Sing uses this torsion box technology, along with wood fiber and foam to create patented Sing Honeycomb: the incredibly strong, true flat, lightweight, renewable composite material of the future. Check out our products section to see a few different applications.

Even without coating, Sing Honeycomb sandwich panels outlast plywood, solid wood, MDF, and particle board. Plywood and engineered wood rot crack because of the weak glue layers. Sing Honeycomb panels last because underneath the skins lie Singcore, which keeps the panels flat through torsion box technology, and therefore doesn’t allow the panel to crack.

Sing Sandwich Panel

Sandwich Panel

torsion box, sandwich panel, honeycomb panel, lightweight panel

Standard sandwich panels utilize an insulating foam core sandwiched in between two thin sheets of hard material.  However, this design offers very little strength and durability. Sandwich panels made by Sing Core are stronger, lighter, and more eco-friendly than these conventional panels because we replace the standard foam core with our patented vertical grain, natural veneer torsion box grid also known as the Sing Core.  For the consumer, this translates into a higher quality product at a fraction of the cost.

(click to visit our product gallery)

Insulated doors made with traditional sandwich panels are highly susceptible to dents and structural damage because of their weak foam core.  Doors made with our Sing Core sandwich panel technology can withstand much higher impacts resulting in little or no damage due to our unique core properties.  The University of Washington has confirmed that our doors can withstand pressure of up to 660 psi, as compared to the average sandwich panel which can only withstand 60-100 psi.

 

http://singcore.com/images/GarageEcoStrong.jpghttp://singcore.com/images/GarageEcoStepThumb.jpg

 

 

How can Sing Core sandwich panels be used? Doors, shelving, table-tops, flooring, bookcases, furniture, outdoor decking material, truck/trailer beds even water tanks, to name a few. The possibilities are endless.

 

 

If you desire products that are lightweight, strong, durable, dimensionally stable, and eco-friendly, then you must try our Sing Core Sandwich Panels.  We like to demonstrate our confidence in the integrity of our products by offering our customers a 10 year structural guarantee.
