Eric’s Prefab Micro House

Eric, one of my readers, sent me some photos of a tiny house project he’s been prototyping. The design began as a disaster relief shelter but in the end didn’t quite meet his initial goals. It did turn out to be a clever way to build a small building so in that regard is a […]

Tiny Prefab – eBook & Plans

Last night I put the finishing touches on a 65 page house plan ebook. It’s called Tiny Prefab, A Do-It-Yourself Prefab Building System and contains the plans and instructions for creating tiny prefab structures that are easy to build from common building materials. The book is a bit of a hybrid between a set of […]

Tiny House Panel System – Update

I’m extremely close to publishing the free plans and a detailed ebook for this tiny house panel system. Over the past few weeks it’s evolved into a system of four sandard interlocking wall panels, one floor panel, one ceiling panel and three roof panels. Most of the construction could happen anywhere leaving only assembly work […]

Tiny House Panel System

I’ve not posted for a few days because I’ve been working on this fairly complex panel system. You’ve seen the preliminary designs in the House for Khayelitsha and the Simple Panelized Shelter but I’m just about done figuring out all the details for a simple panel system that could be used for both homes, as […]

A House for Khayelitsha – Preview

Last night I posted a story on Tiny House Living about a project that has emerged over the last few days. When I woke up this morning I had an idea for how the roof should work so I quickly sketched it and thought I’d share it with you. The house is 16′ by 16′ […]

House of Cards -or- DIY Tiny House Kit

After posting the latest design variation for Nine Tiny Feet I got a few requests to make the house more lightweight. This seems like a pretty good idea since that project is really about getting the most value from the least amount of space. Initially I was thinking this only meant square footage but it […]

Bungalow in a Box

I stumbled on this tiny house kit builder while looking at YouTube a while back. Bungalow in a Box builds panel-frame kits that setup in a day or two. You build the foundation and they deliver the panels to your site ready to lift into place. The video on YouTube shows one being erected in […]
