The McG Loft V2 Tiny House
This tiny house is a 24 foot version of the McG Loft. The additional space allows for a more functional kitchen, and a larger bathroom, living area and loft. This home is designed for full-time living with it’s mid-size appliances.
Like the original McG Loft, the V2 aims to create a more accessible tiny house by incorporating a staircase into the design. The McG Loft V2 also contains a larger living area, kitchen, bathroom, and loft. With 16 windows (including a large skylight in the loft) the interior is flooded with natural light, helping to make the home feel more spacious.
The main living area has a cathedral ceiling and is lit by no less than 10 windows. The staircase to the loft is accessible from the living area and improves the functionality of the home by serving several functions – it acts as a bookcase, with storage space underneath, and of course a way to comfortably reach the loft.
Unlike the original McG Loft this version features a kitchen with a 20-inch-wide stove, mid-size refrigerator, and a washer/dryer, making it a much more functional home. You’ll also find a sink, along with a variety of kitchen cabinets and an under-stair compartment to cater for all your storage needs.
This bathroom is accessed at the rear of the kitchen by a pocket door, which helps to save space. The bathroom is 32″ wide, making it suitable for a standard shower, and there’s also space enough for a small sink, towel rack, and the toilet of your choice (standard, RV, incinerating, or compost).
The loft is naturally lit and ventilated by a skylight with two extra picture windows to ensure that even on the dullest of days you won’t need to depend on artificial lighting. There’s also plenty of space for clothing as well as a queen-size bed, and as if that wasn’t enough, there’s more storage space available at the opposite end of the home over the enclosed porch.
This tiny house can be built on a 24′ x 8′ flatbed 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.
