Micro Gambrel Plans

This design has been retired and is no longer available. 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 […]

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.

12×24 Homesteader’s Cabin – Free Plans

He’s made some smart modifications to it including the addition of a storage box for the solar system batteries and propane tank.

Strawbale Construction Portal

One of my regular readers, Mark, sent me a link to this great Strawbale construction portal. The website is packed with great information including some plans. Below is an example from a set of free plans they offer for a 10×14 strawbale building. Mark is working on converting them to metric and is considering building […]
