While you’ll be hard-pressed to find many municipalities allowing foundation homes under 400 square feet, more and more communities are accepting in-law apartments and ADUs that allow members of the same family to live on the same property. These duplex plans could be a great way to give in-laws or kids their own space while still keeping a small footprint.

This design has two mirror-image tiny homes glued together to look like a single-family dwelling. Each 340 square foot side has a living room, kitchen, bathroom, downstairs bedroom, and upper loft. The homes are sleek and modern, with plenty of windows for natural light. Would this setup work for you?

At just 390 square feet, the Stuga tiny house is a “true” tiny house (under 400 sq. ft.) that’s designed to be built on a foundation. It’s essentially a modern square that’s divided into a kitchen/living area and then features a separate bedroom and bathroom.

Lots of windows and doors bring light inside, and there’s a large deck on two of the four sides of the structure for outdoor living. You can buy the plans for this home from the Small House Catalog. Where would you build this little cabin?

This French Cabin was handbuilt by the host, Mattheiu, and he did a lovely job! The two-story structure features a living/kitchen/bathroom on the first floor, and a ladder takes you up to the loft bedroom with plenty of headroom.

The exterior features stunning board and batten clapboarding, and there’s a shaded private terrace where you can eat or enjoy a glass of wine. You are truly secluded here! What do you think of the design?
