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

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 […]

Tiny House Tour with Bill Brooks

Bill built a tiny house from one of the free tiny house plans I’ve posted here at Tiny House Design. He’s made some smart modifications to it including the addition of a storage box for the solar system batteries and propane tank. My friend Kent Griswold at Tiny House Blog recently took a trip to […]

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 […]

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 […]
