One of the most popular free tiny house plans I offer is the Homesteader’s Cabin. It’s a 12’x24′ house with a 12/12 roof and a loft. The lower level has enough space for a small kitchen, bathroom, laundry closet, and living room. The loft can span half the house giving you a high ceiling in the living room or you can choose to build a full second floor for more space. Also included is a design for a space-saving alternating step ships ladder.

Seen above and below are some photorealistic renders of the exterior views you’ll see in the plans. The only update to the plans was the addition of the nicer exterior views – all dimensions have remained the same. The plans were made using SketchUp, Layout, and these images were exported using the Podium V2 photorealistic plugin.
