The ‘Simple Living’ design is our easiest and least expensive house to build. The goal of this design is to provide an inexpensive option for those on a tighter budget. Depending on the materials used, you can build this house for as little as $10,000!
This design has all the amenities and features that make up a great home, including a 7 foot sleeping loft, a storage loft, bathroom with a 36 inch shower, kitchen, and large family room, but is less expensive for those on a budget. We achieved this cost savings by eliminating extras like dormers and specifying less expensive, while still high quality, materials. For instance, the siding is T1-11 instead of cedar, and the windows are made from vinyl as opposed to the aluminum clad solid wood ones that are found on some of our other homes.

Tiny Home Builders tiny house plans have been designed with the Do-It-Yourself-er 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.

This eliminates the annoyance of having to flip back and forth between multiple sheets while working on a single part of the house.
