The Nook: Really Small And Easy to Tow Tiny House Plans

The Nook tiny house plans are from Humble Homes.

It’s their smallest tiny house design available so far.

Tiny House Plans Just 10’x6.5′ Footprint

That’s TINY! Fortunately the sleeping loft is just a little bit bigger.

If you include both the loft area and the first floor there’s a total of just 119 square feet.

What Does This Mean?

It means it’s easy to tow, build and it’ll also be pretty cheap too.

Micro Kitchen and Dining in the Nook Tiny House


Don’t forget to watch the video with music/voice over at the bottom..

Compact Refrigerator and Stovetop


Flip Up Dining Table

When in use you can flip it up. You can use it for extra counter space when prepping food too. When you’re done it obviously flips down. This is how it has to be in a house this tiny!


Overhead Chair Storage

Overhead storage is available in the ceiling to clear up space for the chairs. Good thinking!

    I would LOVE to know how much it would cost to have this built!!! The moment I saw the design, I thought “Dang! PERFECT “worksite” space for large jobs!!!” I get tired and bored of staying at hotels when we’re developing a job site and this would be a tiny gem of a place to stay Monday-Thursday nite. All I need is my coffee pot, laptop and blueprints and away I’d go!

    LOVE everything about this plan; wonder if “hand grabs” are installed for those crazy stairs, which I believe my damaged knees could climb?

      My guesstimate is around $20k costs and it really just depends on your taste, ya know. But if you do the labor yourself and buy all the materials I’d bet you’d come close to around $20k but it can be done for much less with some extra effort (not buying materials brand new, etc)

        Thanks for the Guesstimate, Alex! That’s a do-able price. 🙂

          Howdy, Cahow, and happy holidays. I agree, this is a great solution for the general PITA conditions of motel travel. I never feel safe anymore, either. Would have to use the loft for storage, tho, knees couldn’t make it, altho I love those little steps, very clever. A blow-up mattress should fit on the floor, too, just for the night. Reach over and there’s the coffee…We could build it much, much cheaper down here in the south, too.

    Interesting design for sure. I would really like to see the framing details, I have no idea how you frame a loft that is larger in area than it’s foundation.

      Good call Jerry that would be interesting to see.

      Jerry: if you click on the link at the very top of this article for HUMBLE HOMES, it takes you right to the Nook page. (Wonder if amazon gets any money from the name-sharing?) 😉

      There are 4 thumbnail schematic diagrams at the bottom of the design, about 1.5″ x 2″; it shows some framing.

      • Jerry

        Thanks Cahow, but unfortunately that framing image is just a first floor, not the expanded loft, and it doesn’t show any method for connecting the top plates to a differently sized structure. Would be interesting to see how it’s done for sure.

    The website claims there is room in the loft for a queen size mattress. Ok, stupid question, how exactly would you squeeze a queen mattress through that 2×2 access hole to the loft?

    • MikeP
      April 19, 2013, 11:22 pm

      I would assume they mean a foam mattress, probably a 4″. That could be rolled up and squeezed through the hole.

      You could use an air mattress, one of the ones that is built to feel like a regular one but comes with several air tubes. They are great for adjusting firmness on either side of the bed for individual tastes.

    Not much to recommend on this one.

    I guess whoever uses it won’t be cooking or washing dishes much with that terrible small round sink. Nor is there a comfortable seat.

    Excellent staircase though. Just who really wants a loft bed?

    For the extra materials to make the loft one could just go 3′ longer with far more storage, comfort, easier to build and lower.

    And while it was barely mentioned before, a loft isn’t good for having fun there ;^P And personally I like having fun. And to the women who are asking what?, your man can last far longer letting you have more or multiple funs at the bed edge than the missionary position.

    Which I think was designed to take all the fun out of it ;^P

      That is what I think everytime I see these lofts. I love all the tiny houses but two things come to mind: the loft would make me feel claustrophobic and I would certainly give myself a concussion every morning… and there doesn’t seem to have room for “fun”. I do believe that is a real and valid concern, because not only single people live in these, and single doesn’t (have to) mean celibate! 🙂 I would love to see other people’s ideas on this…

        It’s a tiny house, invest in some window covering and have fun everywhere else in the house. That wasn’t hard to get around lol

      While these comments may not be offensive to most people, I would truly appreciate if we kept this type of talk out of these comments. I actually read some of these posts with my niece who loves tiny houses, and it’s very uncomfortable to try to gloss over these statements. I really appreciate everyone’s contributions in these comment sections, and just ask that you think about who might be reading them before you post something that might be “uncomfortable” to talk about with a little one.

        Thank you, Jerry, for your voice on this subject matter and I’m your Back Up so you have company. In another topic, I was delicate on the above matter, trying to be very respectful and circumspect to both Alex and other readers. I feel that discussion should remain on the homes and the mundane nature of activities such as cooking, lounging, sleeping and eating. If a person is smart enough to build a tiny house, they’re smart enough to figure out “other” activities, too. 😉

          I think it’s appropriate and in the cases of this TH, there isn’t another place making a place to have fun.

          I used that word on purpose so people like other Jerry could just say they need room to play. His niece never would have had a clue except for Jerry’s reaction as anything but fun wouldn’t have crossed her mind. It’s Jerry’s mind that should just let it slide by her as it would.

          Many of us can’t like we use to so making it easier in TH’s greatly improves quality of life thus important here.

          And one reason the couch pull out to a lounge/recliner to a bed, is important as so many good possibilities including storage ;^P. Now that is multipurpose!

          Just how do you explain the term “missionary position” to a 10 year old? I didn’t have to draw attention to anything. I won’t make any more statements about this issue.

        • jerryd
          April 22, 2013, 8:34 pm

          Hi Jerry and All,
          Standing and praying is a missionary postion. Can’t do that in a loft. No fun either.

          The secret is don’t notice it and go on and neither will she. Be glad I was vague and have a strategy for when things like this happen because they will constantly.

          And there isn’t anything shameful in it and I’d hope you wouldn’t transfer such shame to your niece as it’s a natural part of life.

    Its fairly nice to be able to see a Sketch-up visualization and all but how about some (real) actual photos of the “Product” being showcased? Looks (specially CGI) can and are very deceiving, after working in the Civil Engineering field for a while and dealing with “Plans” and “CG representations” of homes, properties and developments, one tends to get a somewhat jaded eye. I have been interested in TH’s for a while now and have always been of the mindset that the American public has gotten all too comfortable with “Better Than The Jones’s” mentality”. It would be nice to see more things and newer ideas showcased instead of reposting the same ol-same ol every couple of weeks or months (not to rag on you Alex, you are doing a good job here).

    As far as the discussion on the more “Grown-up” activities,,, Seriously? While I do agree that cramped places make for difficult situations at best, I also believe that imagination makes for a more interesting relationship. with that said, we all have to acknowledge the fact that this is and will always be part of life/biology/nature and if we are so uncomfortable explaining that to our children then we fail miserably with their education and unfortunately for them, they get to make some life changing mistakes that may have been avoided with a little knowledge carefully nurtured, expanded and molded by us (their elders). Education is the “Key” to our children’s and our grand-children’s future, and “Yes”, I do have kids of my own and I try to broach any and all subjects with tactfulness and give them as much information as needed at the time to satisfy questions being asked and “No” I do not get into details about all things until they are old enough to understand those details.

    Many Thanks Alex

      I do agree that parents need to talk with their children about adult activities. It’s another thing though when another adult talks to your child about adult activities. I don’t always agree with how parents handle that talk, but I do agree that they should be the ones to have that talk and decide how much to share with their kids, especially when they are younger. It can get uncomfortable for some people when someone else’s child, like a 10 year old niece, asks questions if they don’t know how their parents want to handle it. So I can understand where an adult male could feel uncomfortable when a young girl who is not his daughter asks questions.

        Thank you Molly, I am glad there are some here who understand how this can be an issue.

          Hi Molly, Jerry,

          I feel I may have been misunderstood here, I was merely stating an observation and question, I would not want others to explain certain subjects to my kids either but that is more to my point, since we as parents are the guardians and the ones responsible for our children’s guidance and eventual “Life’s Compass” if you will, would it not be our duty to pre-screen as much as possible? and be even more vigilant with others children?

          I am curious though, because I remember when when I was in a similar situation with my daughter, on a different site and she was actually 9 at the time, we were perusing some photos of Castles and old Village buildings/homes and was asked about some evident shortcomings of the dwellings rooms, I answered just enough to burst that question mark above her head and I did not allow her to read the postings which turned out to be a good idea. My curiosity is more towards the reason why the child was reading the posts and not just looking at the illustrations? If anything, the one constant I have found specially on the internet is that there is almost always that one person that posts something that would be “Uncomfortable” to explain.

          I am not saying I can do this to every piece of information my children see or hear but if I can screen my child from certain things until they are more able to process that knowledge, they grow up knowing I would do the same with their children and so-on.

          I grew up knowing that when I asked a question I would get the same answer from my grandparents and my parents, and today I get that same trust from my son, daughter and my granddaughter, and if there is something troubling, then answer enough to distract and deflect until you can inform the parents of the questions being asked. Knowledge should never be an issue, that’s why so much f the world is in the state its in.

          It was a simple request, and one that is usually accepted as reasonable by adults of some maturity who understand the concept of the proper place for any discussion. My simple request was, and I quote myself from above: I “just ask that you think about who might be reading them before you post something that might be ‘uncomfortable’ to talk about with a little one.” I really don’t see how that is an unreasonable request demanding so much discussion.

    I was wondering how one accesses the storage above the porch. There’s nowhere to store a ladder and a folding chair is hardly stable enough to climb up on and it would be difficult to reach the back.

    Wow jerryd, you say one wrong word and you get shit on. Don’t feel bad, I disagreed with a few designs and I got black listed. There’s a lot of tiny house do gooders on this site so watch your back. Once in awhile someone has to light a little Christmas cheer into this site. You may want to try the humble homes website, now there’s a cure for insomnia.
    Happy holidays y’all.

    I actually liked this design, maybe a little bigger, but it is functional.

    Where did you all find the wooden folding chairs. I have been looking for something like this for quite some time. Thank you for any tips!
