Below… Tiny House Plans from $9.95
Tiny house plans for do-it-yourselfers, drawn by an avid do-it-yourselfer. Intended to help new owner-builders wrap their heads around home construction giving them a leg-up on their own tiny house dreams. The plans show how these tiny houses are framed with step-by-step illustrations.
Cabin is a simple 16′ x 20′ building with a front and back porch. There’s also a sleeping loft above the kitchen and bathroom.
The Tiny Solar Saltbox is a simple 8′ x 12′ building with a loft. Also included are instructions for building multiple 8′ x 12′ units side-by-side allowing you to extend the home in 8-foot increments.
The Tiny Prefab is a self-fab building system. The plans explain how to build panels that can be built off-site and then transported to the building site for assembly. Also includes a free copy of Prefab Hybrid (see below).
The Little River Lodge is a 24-foot tiny house design with a tiny bedroom on the lower level and a loft above. It also has a small bathroom, kitchen, utility room, and a recessed front door.
The Caspar Cottage is a 20-foot tiny house design inspired by the historic homes on Northern California’s Mendocino coast . It has a small bathroom, kitchen, utility room, two lofts, and a small porch. The roof has a 12/12 pitch with a hip roof on the back for more aerodynamic towing.

Prefab Hybrid is a DIY building approach. The plans explain how to build panels that can be built off-site and then transported to the building site for assembly. The hybrid part is that standard framing is used for the roof. This plan is also included in Tiny Prefab ebook (see above).
Today the plans are complete but over time I’ll make improvements and additions as reader suggestions are incorporated. When I do I’ll send out a link to the free update to everyone who has already purchased the ebook in the past. So in many ways purchasing an ebook from me is really more like subscribing to an expanding design resource.
Before building any structure be sure to check with your local authorities. In many communities permits are not needed when building tiny buildings like sheds but the rules range widely so it’s best to research your local restrictions before building anything. Also please note that these plans were not prepared by or checked by a licensed engineer and/or architect. Build from these plans at your own risk.
