It’s exciting to see a tiny house I drew the plans for come to life. Pix is doing a great job.
“The house is 18-feet long, has big picture windows up front, a 2×6 floor, and a shallower pitched roof for bit more head room in the loft.”

Dan built a tiny house for his mom and now he’s put his learnings into a set of plans and an ebook.
Dan’s Tiny House Plans
This past week I updated the plans for the Tiny Solar Saltbox. This is a small 8′ by 12′ structure that can be expanded by building multiple units for larger footprints like 16′ by 12′ and 24′ by 12′. Pictured here is a 16′ by 12′ example.
Tiny Solar Saltbox
This past week I published a set of tiny house plans for tiny solar house. It’s a little 8′ by 12′ saltbox that can be built in multiple units so the owner builder can build a larger home (12×16, 12×24, 12×32, etc) from the same set of plans. The 40-page plans cost $9.99 and can be ordered online and downloaded to your computer.

I was so busy finishing up my first tiny house ebook last week I failed to publish Tiny House Living. Sorry about that. The ebook is a 65 page downloadable PDF that includes the plans ans assembly instructions for a panelized prefab building system a do-it-yourselfer could build with common building materials. It’s $27 and includes free updates.

Kent at Tiny House Blog has been assembling a great resource page of tiny house plans. One of the newest additions is this Little Red Cabin which was featured in his Little House in a Landscape series.

This is a drawing of a tiny house currently under construction. Instead of normal walls this builder is constructing six box-like structures and connecting them in an unusual cube shape. It might not be the most efficient way to enclose space but it is one of the more interesting designs I’ve seen in a while.
My Summer Project
Kent Griswold and Stephen Marshall have been colaborating on a tiny house solution called the Sonoma Shanty. It’s a simple 8′ by 15′ tiny house that is easy to build and low-cost. Kent will soon be making the plans available for sale through his website and Stephen will be hosting regular full-day workshops where you’ll learn to build a Sonoma Shanty. Stephen will also be offering a kit version of the house and complete finished houses too. To learn more about the Sonoma Shanty visit Kent’s Tiny House Blog and Stephen’s Little House on the Trailer.
Project Rolling Freedom is an exciting new project just getting kicked-off and is all about downsizing and increasing personal freedom. I’ve been especially impressed with the new tiny house designs on their website. In the near future they have plans to sell blueprints and provide seminars. Photo credit to Project Rolling Freedom.
