The Calpella is a 16-foot long tiny house on wheels with a 2-foot porch and a 10/12 gable roof. It has a bathroom sized to fit a 32″ square shower stall, composting or standard toilet, and small wall mounted sink. A small kitchen would be placed just outside the bathroom. A sleeping loft above the bathroom & kitchen space provide enough space for a queen sized mattress. Two skylights and a small window in the gable wall can be opened to provide ventilation in the loft. The main living space would be flanked by two built-in sofas that could be built to flip-open to provide more sleeping space. This transforming bed would block the front door, so to provide entry to the house in this mode, a side door in the kitchen is available. Outside the front door are flip-up steps and an extended eave that covers the railed porch. The actual living space is closer 16 feet long since the porch takes up about 2 feet of the trailer bed.

Made for Owner Builders

Tiny Houses are often as unique as their owners. Knowing this… I wanted to make it easier for owner-builders to edit my designs and build their own tiny dream homes. To make this possible I redrew all my tiny house on wheels plans with compatible parts, like bay windows, dormers, and roofs. Now owner-builders can choose how they want to mash-up their own tiny house design.

Standards Based

I also drew heavily on the American Tiny House Association’s Construction Guidelines and great tiny house construction books and how-to videos to help ensure my designs followed quality industry standards.

Plans Include

These plans are delivered as an online download. Each of the tiny house on wheels plans include:

  1. A Printable PDF copy of the plans,
