The Humblebee Porch tiny house plans are great because they’re livable.

With a total of 226-square-feet of living space, it should be enough for many simple folks out there.

My question is, does it have enough space for you? I’d love to learn about that in the comments later, but first see what you think of it below..

Tiny House Plans with a Side Entrance and Porch

Tiny homes with side entrances are starting to become some of my favorites. And when you add the large covered porch it’s even better.

Micro Kitchen in the Humblebee Tiny House

I like the choice of a compact refrigerator and the amount of storage cabinets in the kitchen seems like it would work.

The kitchen has a dining table with counter space and built-in storage. It also has a sink, two-burner cook-top and loads of storage cabinets.

Question…

Do you think this tiny house has enough storage space for your needs? I’d love to know in the comments.

The Humblebee includes a 3′ wide bathroom to make sure you have enough elbow room while you’re in there.

And like all of Humble Homes designs they can be fitted with a variety of toilets and showers..

    Hi Alex!
    You can mount that home on wheels. Try and find a old house trailer frame to adapt. The real problem is towing this house. Useing the right tow vehicle. And local towing rules.

    I imagine a porch could be built in a modular manner, easily assembled and disassembled, and placed in the rear of the tow vehicle during transportation. The only thing I don’t like about this design (and many like it) is the full height pantry separating the kitchen from the main room. While this does provide a sense of separate rooms, it closes off space in an area you would want an open feeling. Keeping the centered areas free of eye level obstructions makes the entire place feel larger.

      I agree about the porch. That’s my plan, if I can ever find a place near my job where I could legally park a tiny home. I would screen it in though, to make it more livable and use it as another room.

    I’d swap out a daybed kind of thing for the two chairs and make the permanent kitchen stuff smaller. Lots of tiny houses have oversized kitchens and undersized lounging areas. I don’t know about other people but most of my indoor waking hours are spent in the living room area, not the kitchen. You can have functionality in the kitchen area by using pullouts and flipups that tuck away when you’re not in the kitchen rather than having that space permanently dedicated. A table can be part of either room and should fold up smaller when not needed. I find if you maximise the living room or have a central volume that can be part of either the living room or kitchen as needed you really add to the homeyness and comfort. Porches are great, even if it’s just an awning over some duckboards. Having that outdoor covered space is handy for so many things besides sitting in a deck chair. Especially when it’s rainy or snowy.

      I completely agree with you about kitchens in tiny houses Alice! I’m designing the doors for my lower kitchen cabinets to swing up and become a work surface. I’ll be making the doors similar to hardwood cutting boards, with a hinge on top to swing up, and a leg to swing down for bracing. Easily doubles the available counter top space without taking up permanent floor space.

        Exactly! I’ve been inspired by a computer armoire I have that uses strong drawer type hardware to provide rollout surfaces and some of the pullout pantries I’ve seen online. My kitchen will have a permanent countertop 18″ deep with dedicated small sink, fridge and some kind of cooktop plus completely freestanding cabinets that roll out from underneath with their own work surfaces on top. Next to it will be a full height narrow pullout pantry that can house toaster oven, M/W, tea kettle etc, that plug into a power bar so you use them right in place on the pantry shelves with the pantry unit either at a 90 degree to the counter or pulled out further and pivoted back in line with the counter. It will also have a rollout lower section with flipup leaves to use as work space or table. I’m trying to make it so that you can use the setup in any configuration, so you can roll out the whole pantry plus table, or just the pantry or just the table, use the cabinets in place or pulled out, etc depending on how much space you need. Pantry and cabinets will have lockable casters underneath and there are tons of hardware options to make this kind of thing work smoothly. I’m working up a full scale model in cardboard first to test various configurations. I call it my puzzle box kitchen, my granddaughter calls it the Swiss Army kitchen.

          If you have the chance, I’m sure I’m not the only one who would like to see pics or drawings of your Swiss Army Kitchen, even the cardboard model! It sounds like a great idea, thanks for sharing!

            So far it’s mostly in my head and some very scribbly pencil scratchings. The cardboard model will come after I take a lot of measurements to arrive at the smallest pantry that will hold the appliances. I’m working through some design drawings this week, not sure how I would post them though.

          Alice, what part of the country are you from? I love your ideas! I have been pinning all kinds of ideas for when I build/get my tiny house, and am in the process of downsizing.
          http://pinterest.com/susieq007vt/tiny-house-ideas/
          I live on 5 acres in VT, and just cannot justify 3 bedrooms 2 bathrooms and 1400 sqft any more. Besides, I practically hibernate during the winter. I really think that this is a wonderful solution for many of us of ‘grandmother’ age, and think it would be wonderful if a group of us could get together and share our particular needs and ideas, they are different to the younger 20 somethings.

            susie, as a grandmother myself, I do agree with you about getting together on these ideas, like minded living, simplifying our worlds together. Living in TN though, loving the weather, as I spent 10 yrs in CT, wayyy too cold for my blood/bones. Thinking of a community of lil living folks. Community is the only way to go. Looking for property and others like minded to gather together and create the kingdom lol. TN tiny houses have fantastic plans/models, check it out when you get a chance. Give me shout at wntngitall @ the gmail take care

            I will be in my 60s before I’m even an empty nester, so my one problem with the truly TINY house designs is the loft sleeping, and ladders. I do not get up and down from floor level easily and I’d want real stairs, even if they are steeper than conventional. So a small house vs. tiny is more for me– plus I’d want my 2 kids and hopefully grandkids to be able to visit. But I’m definitely looking forward to downsizing from my 1350 ft sq plus full basement home. I will build or seek a place near a community center, so I can do artsy craftsy things THERE, and meet with friends there when I feel a need for more space. But I do like the idea of a cottage vs. a multi-unit condo– like a yard and windows. I hope cities will be revisiting zoning to allow more compact houses, or two homes per lot. My other issue? Basements: there are tornados where I live, so a basement is a necessary safety feature, and a good place for cool storage.

          I LOVE your Swiss Army kitchen ideas! I was going to say that I would need an oven for this kitchen to seem complete. It doesn’t need to be full size, but probably at least “apartment sized.”

    Enough storage? Other than for food I don’t see hardly any other than for a few books and nic-nacs. If there is a TH that needs the furniture of your first article including the alternating step staircase, this is it.

    On porch roofs now the price of PV has dropped so much if well shopped isn’t that much more than rooking materials, labor. So for me it’s a no brainer using a PV array for the porch roof.

    Since it is under 2” thick and not too heavy they could just pivot down easily for road travel.

    For me I’d build a more space eff kitchen, bath, drop the roof a few feet and extend the porch roof angle over the TH for better, lower cost, much easier to build, stronger and lighter roof. I already forgot the $10 word for it ;^

    I do like a full length porch that can be made into a sun/screened in/paneled in extra space as needed that can be flat packed against the trailer for moving or more secure storage.

      I do like the idea of a porch roof designed from solar panels. Just one thing to remember, you will have limited positioning ability due to needing to have your panels in a southern facing position. Solar panels are wired in series, and if one cell is in the shade, it dramatically affects the overall output of the panel. That’s one of the reasons many solar tiny house owners keep the solar panels on a cart/wagon for easy positioning. If your tiny house is never moved, and your porch already faces south, this of course isn’t an issue.

    Because of moving so much recently, I’ve given away literally everything I didn’t need (went too far on a couple of things, but oh, well…), and now could very easily live in a house even smaller than this one. This, though, would feel spacious compared to what I moved out of in December 2012; while I had use of the roommate’s kitchen, I stayed in my room 95% of the time, just not wanting to listen to her junk. This tiny house is at least twice the size of the room I was crammed into, and it has a locking door for P-R-I-V-A-C-Y! What a precious commodity that is when you don’t have it!
