Micro Gambrel Plans

Announcing another free tiny house plan download for a Micro Gambrel. It measures 8′ deep and 7′ 4″ wide. The reason for the odd width is that it’s sized to optionally fit on an 82″ wide (between the fenders) trailer so that it could be adapted for a mobile tiny house. Gambrel roofs are common […]

Homesteader’s Cabin v.2 – Updated Free House Plan

One of the most popular free tiny house plans I offer is the Homesteader’s Cabin. It’s a 12’x24′ house with a 12/12 roof and a loft. The lower level has enough space for a small kitchen, bathroom, laundry closet, and living room. The loft can span half the house giving you a high ceiling in […]

Richard’s Teeny Tiny House

One of my readers, Richard, sent me these photos of a tiny house he built from a set of my free tiny house plans. But you’ve probably noticed there’s something a little odd about his house. Truth be told it’s a 1/9 scale model built using basswood, balsa wood and polystyrene. Richard likes to build […]

Tiny Prefab Free Plans

The storms raging across half of the United States are a terrible reminder of nature’s power – and how our homes are not always up to the task of shielding us to the level we need. I imagine most folks are busy preparing for storms to hit while some are already working hard to pick […]

8×12 Tiny House – Free Plans

This set of free tiny house plans is a classic 8′ x 12′ house with a 12/12 pitched roof. The plans are 20 pages and are drawn to the same level of detail as my other tiny house plans. The walls are framed with 2x4s and the floor and roof are framed with 2x6s. It’s […]

12×24 Homesteader’s Cabin – Free Plans

Over a year ago I drew a design for a 12×24 Cabin but never finished the plans. I was suffering from a sort of writer’s block. No form of therapy seemed to work to help me break free – not even reading Steven Pressfield’s The War of Art. Inspiring book – but other people’s answers […]

Usonian Inspired House Plans

Architect Joseph Sandy has posted a free set of house plans on his website. The interior space measures 350 square feet and provides ample space for one or two people. To maximize the usefulness of the space, built-ins are used throughout and no space is wasted on hallways or bedrooms. For example notice how the […]

Tiny Prefab Plans

You might have noticed that I’ve not been posting much the past two weeks. I’ve been working every night on this panelized prefab design and finally have the free plans ready for you to see. The ebook version of the plans will be available soon too. The drawings are all complete; I just need to […]

Bill Builds The Tiny Solar House

A couple of weeks ago I got some exciting news from my friend Kent Griswold that someone was building a house from one of my tiny free house plans. I’ve had a few people tell me they are planning on building one of my designs but these are the first photos of an actual house […]

Murphy Bed in the 8×20 Solar House

I’m still making small edits to the next version of the house plans but I wanted to share a better picture of the murphy bed. It’s a queen size bed mounted horizontally. This allows some space to walk around side of the bed past the main windows but more importantly allows the whole thing to […]
