My husband and I are in the early stages of creating a spiritual sanctuary for growth, gatherings, healing, and nature retreats. We are currently designing a tiny house which we will build this summer.

Loft Framing Questions

Hello, we are going to be building two lofts. We have questions about framing. We are considering either going with steel tubing or 2x6's turned on their sides. Anyone have info about either method in terms of stability, weight  and cost? 
Thanks! Taica

Blocking and Leveling Questions

We are ready to block and level our trailer to start our build. We don't plan to move it but want to be able to in case. My husband plans to mix 3/4 inch loose stone with crushed gravel that has rock dust for pads, then stack 16x8 concrete blocks (two together with the seams alternating as we stack up) and shim with wood. I have not seen anyone doing it this way and want to make sure it will be safe. We are in New England with lots of rocks in the ground so difficult to scrape down and level. 
Does anyone have advice or links to appropriate info? Thanks! Taica Patience
