I’ve been busy drawing plans for the past month and slacked off a bit on posting articles on Tiny House Design. It just occurred to post a preview of the next set of plans I’ll be publishing. I don’t have a name for the design yet but it measures 12×24 and has 12-foot walls with a 12/12 pitch roof. I guess the word “twelve” should in the name somewhere 🙂
The walls are framed with 2x6s, 24-inches on center. The walls are also balloon-framed to make it easier for a couple people to build. I couldn’t imagine lifting a 12×24 wall without a crew, so the long walls are split into two 12×12 sections. It has a decent sized bathroom and a small kitchen. The upper level could be two bedrooms or left open.
The loft is accessed by climbing an alternating step ladder and the wood stove chimney runs right up through the opening to the loft to make it easier to install the stove and heat the whole house. One wall also has four big windows for some added passive solar gain.
The drawing is basically done, now I just need to make all the measured drawings and put them together in a set of plans which I’ll sell for $9.99. I hope to have the plans complete by the end of the week. If you have any suggestions I’d love to hear them.
