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 plans and instructions for building and assembling a panelized prefab tiny house. A wide variety of sizes of buildings can be built but the roof plans in the ebook are designed for an 8-foot deep tiny house. The smallest size building is 8’ by 8’. If more space is desired it’s length can be increased by increments of 4 feet so if you want a structure that us 8′ by 20′ this DIY prefab system will work fine. Below are small screen shots of all the pages in the ebook so you can get a good idea of what is included before you buy. Just click the thumbnails to see more.
PDF format – 65 pages – $19.99
Includes complete plans and free ebook updates (Learn more about the free updates below)
Now that this ebook is done I’ll get back on my regular blogging schedule by first whipping up the Tiny Prefab adaptation for the House for Khayelitsha which is a 16′ by 16′ version of the 8-foot wide tiny house in the ebook. It uses most of the same panels in the book. The main difference is that there will be a supporting wall down the center of the house and a different set of roof panels.

I found a pier-based system for temperate zones that requires almost no excavation. You don’t even have to mix concrete on site, just set the piers and drive the pins… see http://www.pinfoundations.com
