Mark Hooker has shared this amazing folding A-frame cabin design as part of our 2015 8×12 tiny house design contest.

The end walls are detached and there is a solid 8×12 floor made with 3 4x8s.

There are six separate side wall pieces. And three hinge under and over the floor for shipping.

This design can be put on wheels or on a foundation and you can cut windows and doors to your own liking. What do you think?

Eddie Williams of Green Life Shelters has shared this awesome 8×12 tiny house design as part of our 2015 8×12 tiny house design contest.

It’s a tiny two-story tiny cabin with a covered front porch and a unique roof line with skylight and plenty of windows throughout.

When you go inside you’ll see your kitchen straight ahead and micro living area to your right with wall mounted television and ladder that takes you up to the loft. The bathroom is to your left.
