The living room features a large operable window to provide natural light and ventilation. With a ceiling height of 6′-10″ and exposed loft joists, the space feels both spacious and warm. Storage cabinets have been incorporated around the perimeter of the room, with additional recessed storage cabinets available in the partition walls for smaller items. You may also decide to use the living room as a first floor bedroom – it’s up to you!
The dining room contains the homes two main entrances – the single front door, and the outward-swing patio doors. The dining area has enough space for a small table and two or three chairs. The source of heating is also located in this section of the tiny house; a small stainless steel fireplace that can be adjusted according to your needs.
The kitchen features a 2-burner cook-top, sink and under-counter refrigerator. The kitchen also contains base cabinets, wall cabinets, and a drawer unit, helping to provide ample storage space for all your culinary needs.
The bathroom is accessed by a bi-fold door at the rear of the kitchen. The bathroom contains a toilet, and 32-inch square shower. A variety of toilet types can be installed, including standard, RV, compost, and incinerating toilet. The bathroom can also accommodate a small sink and wall cabinet if necessary.
One end of this home contains a sleeping loft which can accommodate a queen-size bed, and the other features a large storage area measuring 5′-3″ x 7′. Both lofts are naturally lit and ventilated by skylight windows.
This tiny house can be built on a 20′ x 7′ utility trailer, or a 21′ x 7′ utility trailer.

Good To Know
WALLS & ROOF
All our tiny houses are built using advanced stick-frame construction techniques. A variety of different types of insulation can be installed, from sheep’s wool to expanded polystyrene. We also recommend the use of internal vapour barriers.
How you clad your tiny house is up to you, but we recommend sustainably harvested timber that’s been approved by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). Other cladding options include lightweight steel panels, and vinyl siding.
DOORS & WINDOWS
Our tiny houses are designed , and to meet the needs of many. That’s why we specify windows from Jeld Wen, an international company that specialises in the construction of quality doors and windows for a wide range of budgets.
HEATING & VENTILATION
There are many options for heating a tiny house. Some which have been installed in our tiny houses include the Morso 1440 wood burning stove, the Newport P-9000 stainless steel fireplace, and the Envi wall-panel heater.
Plumbing systems for a tiny house can be as complicated or simply as needed. Black and grey water tanks can be installed to create an RV-like system, while others prefer composting toilets to minimise their environmental impact.
A tiny house can be hooked up to the main grid, or you can decide to go off-grid and use solar panels to provide for your electrical needs. Some of our tiny house plans include PV-system schematics to help you along your way.
FIXTURES & FITTINGS
Our tiny houses are designed with standard-sized components in mind to minimise the amount of work, and cost to create your dream tiny home. All the main components (like the kitchen stove and sink) are specified in the plans.
We typically specify a painted drywall finish for the interior of our homes, but there’s nothing to stop you from installing timber cladding (a popular finish among tiny houses) or even tiles in your kitchen or bathroom.
