Tiny House Plans

Each of the tiny house plans below are based off of or were used in the construction of actual tiny houses of very high quality. The individuals selling these plans live in their tiny homes full-time and are amazing examples for the rest of the tiny house community. Your support for them is appreciated! These plans were all very carefully researched, planned and tested, meaning you can trust that that any finished home created using any of these plans will be safe and efficient, with incredibly well thought-out features and use of space. These plans are for tiny houses with a more modern design style (often a low-slope shed-style roof) and offer a variety of options for singles and couples looking to live tiny in some of the very best designs. I highly recommend each of these (my plans the most, of course!).

Macy’s MiniMotives

macy Miller tiny house MiniMotives

These are the plans for Macy’s very popular MiniMotives house. Like the other plans shown here, her house features a more modern design style. Macy’s is somewhat unique in that it does not include a loft and makes room for a bed on the main level (with storage underneath), accessible with just a few small steps.

Macy’s Basic-Plans package is a 13 page set of drawings with general information (including links to products that may be less familiar and her exact fixtures), a material list for basic costing purposes, some floor and ceiling plans, elevations and framing plans, that’s it.  Simple easy general info without the bells and whistles.  There are no details of specific wall assemblies included in this package.

For those that want it all detailed out down to the millwork, Macy’s Full Plans set has just that.  It’s a 33 page set of drawings that includes everything in the Basic Plan package as well as the electrical plan, plumbing plan, millwork and all the details of assemblies I used in my actual house.  This, I imaging would be the package that I would purchase if I as starting it over again from scratch, in fact I WISH I had had this prior to going at it.

The third package is Everything, the full plans plus the Sketchup model which is fully editable.  This is for those people who want to build something similar to Macy’s house but maybe with a few tweaks.  They can start with the base sketchup model and tweak things from there.  I am only offering the Sketchup Model with the purchase of the full set of plans, not independently.

Sol Pod

Sol Pod tiny house plans

Another beautiful creation of Vina Lustado! After designing her own tiny home and living in it for many years, she decided to design & build a mobile office space, also on a trailer. SOL POD is designed to be multi-functional, flexible and portable. The interior is bathed with natural light and there is plenty of storage on the raised platform floor.

By incorporating green technologies such as solar, this tiny house is a perfect for off-grid applications. It uses an innovative solar battery storage by SimpliPhi Power.

Perhaps the best part of this unit is the ease and speed of construction with SIPs panels (structural insulated panels). The walls and roof went up in literally one day!

  • Powered with rooftop solar panels
  • Loft space for sleeping, lounging or storage
  • Kitchenette with sink, refrigerator, induction stove
