This house has a gable-end entrance, which leads directly into the living area. The living area is is flooded in natural light due to its 4 large sash windows (6 if you include the glazed door and loft window). There’s enough space to accommodate two arm chairs and a folding leaf table. Facing opposite the chairs are two windows and the home’s gas heater, a stainless steel fireplace.
The entrance to the kitchen is flanked by two large closet/shelving units suitable for storing books, clothing etc. The kitchen itself is a modest, functional space with all the essentials – cabinets, cook-top, sink and a refrigerator. It also has some built-in storage for smaller items for like herbs and spices.
The bathroom contains enough space for all the necessaries: a shower, toilet, mirror, and built-in cabinetry. Like all our bathrooms, it contains a large window to provide a source of natural lighting. If required, a small sink can also be installed. Suitable toilet types include a standard toilet, an RV toilet, or a composting toilet.
The loft is suitable for a queen-size mattress and has a large pentagon window to provide light during the day in the cosy sleeping space. The loft can be accessed by a ladder.
This tiny house can be built on a 18′ x 7′ utility trailer, or a 19′ 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.
