Tumbleweed Cottage Plans… The 251-sq.-ft. Loring Tiny House Design, On A Foundation

The Tumbleweed Loring is a 251 square foot small house design. There’s an option to upgrade with an additional bedroom making the house 356 square feet.

It’s wonderful design that makes for a beautiful simple home. It has a front porch, large enough great room for living, full kitchen, bathroom and a roomy upstairs sleeping loft.

If you got the extra bedroom option it would open up through the kitchen.

Tumbleweed’s Loring small house plans are available.

The fun part about a house like this, too, is that you can always add-on to it later on if you wanted to.

    The above link no longer works. As Natalie noted on another post, Tumbleweed Tiny Homes is no longer owned by Jay Shafer, and no longer offers these plans.

    BUT…plans are still available for most, if not all, of the larger homes in Shafer’s “Small House Book” on houseplans.com. For this specific version of the Loring, see plan 915-9: https://www.houseplans.com/plan/261-square-feet-1-bedroom-1-bathroom-0-garage-bungalow-39324.
