Fall in Love with Tiny House Plans

By Jordan Koonts, Contributing Writer for Direct from the Designers™

Whether you want to move or are new to the housing market, finding the right home can be stressful. As people seek the right amount of space, there’s been an increasing trend towards opting for tiny houses. While such modest living may not be your first thought, consider the many benefits a tiny home can provide. From helping to downsize and minimizing clutter to providing a cost-effective living situation, a tiny house may be exactly what you’re looking for. And tiny house plans come in all forms and can accommodate many lifestyles, with countless options to choose from. Here’s why customers love designs from our Tiny House Plan Collection, all 1,000 square feet or less!

House Plan 4075

Not only does a tiny house promote a simpler way of living, but it can reduce your environmental impact. A great example of an environmentally friendly home can be seen in House Plan 4075. It has efficient 2x6 framing, and large windows and doors to help reduce electricity and heat/AC costs while enjoying the views.

To Promote a Minimalist Lifestyle

Most often, the motive behind people buying a tiny house is because they want to lead a simpler, more minimalist lifestyle. A tiny house plan is perfect for the home buyer who may want to de-clutter and live only with the essentials. Old mementos are great, but the reality is that they can take up a lot of space and many are happier when they trim their possessions down to the few that really matter.

Additionally, tiny homes are much more environmentally friendly than larger, traditional houses. The smaller floor plan alone minimizes your carbon footprint because it’ll take a lot less to heat and cool. Opting for high efficiency appliances can also help lead to a greener lifestyle.

House Plan 4709

Building a house doesn’t have to be expensive. House Plan 4709 shows how a tiny house can have the look and feel of an upscale abode without the price tag. You can add nicer fixtures and features—even ones you thought might be out of your price range—to your home while saving money on construction.

To Keep Ahead of Finances

Regardless of whether you’re a first-time home buyer or simply want to move, a tiny house is extremely cost-friendly. By choosing to go tiny, you can save tens of thousands of dollars while creating a space that is tailor-made for you. And with plans available up to 1,000 square feet, a tiny house can incorporate all of the rooms and amenities that are needed while avoiding the hefty price tag of a traditional home. Our designs have up to three bedrooms at this size!

House Plan 1759

Building equity and becoming a homeowner is easier than ever in tiny houses such as House Plan 1759. The Craftsman-style design has an appealing look you’ll love to call home while you save money and build credit for the future. Plus, it has a built-in guest bed!

To Build Equity

By choosing a tiny house, the money saved in construction costs can be invested in equity (putting more money down on the mortgage) and/or creating a higher-value property. Whether it’s luxurious appliances and finishes, or adding an extra room, a tiny house is ideal for customizing. Or maybe you’re primarily concerned with generating equity as the homeowner? This is especially appealing to first-time buyers who may need to save money in order to buy a larger house in the future. Avoid paying rent on somebody else’s property—a tiny house lets you keep that cash as part of your own assets!

House Plan 9408

An example of a truly stunning vacation home can be seen in House Plan 9408. Large open areas and thoughtfully designed decking make this tiny house feel like a part of its surroundings.

To Have a Vacation Home

One of the greatest benefits of tiny houses is their versatility. A tiny house requires much less lot space to build and as such, can be placed in areas that you may have thought were unaffordable. With the right tiny house plan, a beach house or a mountain getaway can go from being a dream to a reality. On top of that, you can use it to generate rental income from others when you aren’t there!

House Plan 4300

House Plan 4300 is a tiny house with big capabilities. This two-story home with two bedrooms and two baths is complete with a large patio area and is perfect for hosting friends and family.

To Host Family and Guests

A common misconception with tiny houses is that they are only big enough for a single person or at most, a couple. The reality is that, with the proper design and plan, tiny houses can be perfect for families, and they’re also great for hosting, by themselves or when used as accessory dwelling units. Whether the plan incorporates a lofted sleeping area to maximize living space, or has space for a future addition of bedrooms, tiny houses don’t have to put a damper on your love of having visitors over. Many even have multi-use spaces that can serve as an entertaining area or even extra bedrooms. Every bit of space in a tiny house is maximized to its full potential.
