This mom planned and built an amazing two-bedroom tiny house for her and her teen daughter. The two lived in it for three years before the single mom married her partner and they purchased a fixer-upper together.
Now, she’s selling the plans to her awesome home so others in situations like hers can enjoy it, too! She designed the space with two private bedroom lofts, complete with staircases, closets, and DOORS. Brilliant.
The galley kitchen and large bathroom also have plenty of room for a little family. You can purchase plans here.
Here’s another set of tiny house plans we think you’ll love — the Desiderata. Build on a gooseneck trailer, you get that awesome split-level living room (or maybe a bedroom?) along with the rest of the great layout that fits in two additional lofts.
There’s a spacious kitchen and bathroom, and oodles of storage tucked into every corner. You can watch a video tour of the original home below, and get the plans here.
Container homes are an awesome way to reduce-reuse-recycle, and with the cost of lumber these days it’s likely somewhat more economical than the alternative.
These are plans for a container home (estimated $20,000 in materials to build — expect to pay more today as material costs have gone up quite a lot since this was estimated) that includes a downstairs bedroom and epic rooftop deck with a full staircase!
The example home below has dark, modern finishes, but you could — of course — make it look like whatever you want. You can buy the plans here.
So this is totally on my project list! A greenhouse built from recycled windows is a perfect shabby-chic addition to your backyard AND you can use it to start seeds or grow some year-round produce. This one was built by Mustard Seed Tiny Homes near Atlanta, Georgia.
Right now the company is only building these, on foundation, within an hour radius of their headquarters. So if you happen to live locally, I’d definitely contact them! This could even be used as a warm-weather Airbnb if you had a private spot to tuck it into.
If you’re looking to build a tiny house for the most affordable price, here’s how you may be able to do it for only $3,000 in material costs. Our friend LaMar Alexander is looking to help anyone out there looking to get into a self-built quality tiny house for the least amount of money with his new tiny house plans.
So if you can do the labor yourself, you may be able to build yourself a tiny house very affordably. Need it to be built on a trailer for mobility or zoning? That will run you up approximately $6,000 in materials so you can build it on a Big Tex Trailer. Just remember, these prices are approximate and can change and vary depending on various factors like location, trailer choice, material choices, as well as any uncontrollable events and material price hikes.

A couple of days ago we showed you a Thimble Home set up as an Airbnb, but this Amata model has been fully outfitted as a full-time dwelling and comes furnished which is a nice feature (if you like the furnishings).
Double doors lead into the cozy living room complete with a book nook window seat. The kitchen has a farmhouse sink and marble-esque countertops. For sleeping, there’s both a king-sized loft and a second one for guests, kids, or storage.
Big thanks to Dwayne for sharing these awesome 480 square foot homes that were built in the community of Orange Mound in Memphis, Tennessee. According to Wikipedia, this community was the first in the United States to be built by and for African Americans.
The homes have the same layout, but different elevations, and both sold for $55,000 (so affordable!). These one-bedroom, one-bathroom homes are new construction and show that small/tiny houses can be built on foundations!
This tiny home on a farm is the perfect pastoral getaway in historic Scottsville Virginia. The 25-acre farm has all kinds of animals, from goats to peacocks to livestock guardian dogs. They roam around while you stay in a beautiful one-floor tiny house.
The home sits on a foundation and includes a kitchen and bathroom. There’s a lovely outdoor fire pit where you can make s’mores or hang out. Also, the getaway is pet-friendly (so long as they’ll be friendly to the resident livestock).
This tiny house, “The Grand,” was custom-built for Jen, who wanted a wine-country-themed getaway! Modern Tiny Living delivered this stunning spot, complete with rustic barnwood accents and bright red cabinets.
You can watch the whole Tiny House, Big Living episode (#11) on Amazon here for $2.99. Check out the photo tour below and see the house specs. Jen chose a loft bedroom, kitchen with a large undermount sink, and a bathroom with a fiberglass shower and composting toilet.
