Caspar Cottage (8×20)
If you drive northward along Highway 1 in Northern California you’ll eventually come to the tiny coastal towns of Mendocino County. This part of the California coast first began to attract settlers in the 1850s and grew for decades fueled by a booming lumber industry. Today the coastline is left with many large and small examples of traditional and historic homes.
This design is named for the tiny town of Caspar, just off Highway 1 between Mendocino and Fort Bragg. Caspar was first settled in 1857. Today Caspar is a quiet village with small shops, homes, church, and a popular nightclub, The Caspar Inn, a continuously roadhouse since 1906.
This tiny house design would be built on a double axle trailer, measures 8-feet wide by 20-feet long. It has a bathroom, kitchen, two lofts, and a small porch. The roof has a 12/12 pitch with a hip roof on the back to improve aerodynamics when being towed.
The plans are 36 pages long, cost $9.95 and show you how a tiny house is framed step-by-step. Plumbing and electrical plans are not included but there is a list of the lumber needed. Below are some sample pages from the plans.
