The backyard studio is an easy, inexpensive, and do-it-yourself (DIY) way to expand your house to make room for your work, hobbies, and crafts. It is small enough to be considered a shed in most municipalities and can thus be legally built in most backyards.

Our DIY plans allow you to build a higher quality, more attractive alternative to the storage sheds found at the home improvement stores. By building it yourself, you can also customize its appearance to have the exact look you want.

Tiny Home Builders tiny house plans have been designed with the Do-It-Yourselfer in mind. While some plans require extensive contracting experience to understand, we have laid out our plans in a simple step-by-step format. The placement of each piece of framing lumber is shown and complimented with a 3D rendering showing exactly which area of the house you are looking at, making our plans some of the easiest to build from.

All Plans Include:

PDF Instant Download

Our plans are also delivered to you instantly in PDF format. This allows you to start planning right away on building your tiny house.

Large Format Print

Each of our tiny house plans are printed on 18 x 12 inch sheets of paper. This large size makes them easy to read and provides enough room to fit all the relevant information per step on a single page. This eliminates the annoyance of having to flip back and forth between multiple sheets while working on a single part of the house.

Easy to Understand

Our plans are easy to understand. While they are complete enough for a professional contractor, they are also easy enough for the novice to comprehend. Plans typically only show section diagrams with the contractor left to fill in the gaps, we show every piece of framing lumber.

Comprehensive Materials List

Our tiny house plans include a detailed, itemized material lists. This list allows you to minimize the number of trips to the store while also taking advantage of significant bulk discounts at the home improvement retailers. These discounts typically exceed 3 to 4 times the cost of our plans.

Electrical Diagram

In addition to the framing and sheathing information, we also provide an electrical diagram that shows the placement on all the lights, switches, and outlets. The placement of these items has been refined over multiple tiny house builds.

SketchUp Model

The SketchUp model allows you to view the house in 3D and to take any measurement and see how every board fits together. You can even import furniture into SketchUp to see what your house will look like once complete.
