16 × 26 Modern Small Home Plans

This might just be the perfect tiny house plan! You get a spacious ground-floor bedroom, a 3/4 bathroom, and a large, open-concept living/kitchen area with an eat-in island.

The covered porch brings the total square footage to 600, but the living space indoors caps off at 400 — right under that “tiny” threshold. You can purchase the plans on Etsy! Let us know what you think in the comments.

    I could not find the plans on Etsy for this no loft house. Where can I buy them?

    I love it! So nice to see a 1st floor bedroom for those of us who aren’t comfortable using a loft.

    I love the size of this layout, and the covered front porch on the long side of the building. That said, this plan is full of design issues. The windows don’t match up well with the interior functions in either the bedroom or the main room. Having the bathroom and laundry not back up to where the kitchen plumbing is just makes it more expensive to build. The tiny shower that is right up against the shower is inconvenient (TOWs a fraction of this size manage a better set-up), and yielding so much livingroom space just to have a stacked washer dryer is wonky. I would move the window walls to the back side of the house, move the bathroom and laundry functions to the front side of the house. I would also feel uncomfortable having three large bedroom windows that open to a porch for both privacy and safety reasons. Finally, ditch the double sliding door as an entrance in favor of a real front door, please.

      I meant tiny shower that is right up against the toilet.

    A lovely small house design. My comments/suggestions:
    1. The house sits at best a few inches above the ground. Many developers do that, as a matter of economy, on a basic slab foundation as there is less foundation construction cost. That’s fair enough. But perhaps raise the height of the foundation so that the floor of the house is at least one foot (or better two feet) above the ground level. Have U ever have gotten an inch or two of water in your house in a flash rain storm? I rest my case. A higher foundation is money well spent.
    2. Additional roof overhang around the house (the 3 sides not protected by the lovely front porch) will help to keep the sun out of those generous massive windows in summer. But, again, it is a matter of construction cost. Well planted trees can do the same thing.
    These comments are respectfully submitted. Stephan of Arkansas
