Looking for a spacious, modern tiny house layout with a relatively simple construction process? Then check out the new Hikari Box Tiny House Plans from designer/builder Shelter Wise! Shelter Wise took their experience custom-designing numerous tiny homes on wheels for clients over the last few years and combined all their favorite ideas into this design.
At 24 feet long, the Hikari Box is 184 square feet on the ground floor, with one 79 square foot loft for a queen bed and another 23 square foot loft for storage or a twin bed. It features 14 windows to let the light pour in (“Hikari” is Japanese for “light-filled”), and tons of storage in the kitchen, and in the Japanese tansu chest-inspired stairway to the main loft.

Shelter Wise considers this the easiest tiny house they’ve ever built. It should be easy for professional builders, and DIYers will benefit from some of the simplified construction details. The metal shed roof cuts out many construction details common with gable and curved roofs, and all the plumbing is located in one corner so you don’t have to run plumbing pipes all over the house.
Here’s Derin from Shelter Wise introducing the inspiration by the house and describing the features.

Having been in this house, I can tell you that I love it. It feels light, bright and open, there are numerous separate spaces so you don’t feel like you’re sitting in one room all the time, and the minimal design is the perfect backdrop to customize, decorate, and really make the interior feel like it’s just for you.
