It’s always exciting to see one of my tiny house plans built. This house, built by Mike Irish in Oregon, was inspired by my Tiny Solar House with Gables but is 6-feet longer measuring 8′ by 26′. You can download my free plans from Tiny House Design.
Recently Stephanie at Coming Unmoored visited the Phoenix Earthship in Taos, New Mexico. Earthships were born out of the imagination and ingenuity of Mike Reynolds. These homes are build from tires, dirt, and natural and recycled materials. They are passive solar and use thermal mass to regulate temperature. You can learn more at the Earthship website and read about Stephanie’s stay at the Phoenix Earthship. Technically this is not a tiny house but this would be a wonderful way to build a tiny house.
There are now three sets of free tiny house plans available at Tiny House Design. The first is a simple 8×8 Tiny Cabin with a loft. While being incredibly small it still has all the basic features of a larger home like a bathroom, kitchen, storage, and living area. Also available is a 5×8 Tiny Market House which is a trailer mounted tiny house designed for artisians and farmers to take their wares to market. The largest tiny house is an 8×16 Tiny Solar House that features a single pitch shed roof, open sleeping loft, and high cieling. Be sure to download your free tiny house plans at Tiny House Design.
