This is the Philo 12 Tiny House on Wheels. It’s a tiny house design by Michael Janzen that you can buy to build your own.

The Philo is a 12-foot long tiny house on wheels with a 10/12 gable roof. It has a bathroom sized to fit a 32″ square shower stall, composting or standard toilet, and small wall mounted sink. A small kitchen could be placed in the center of the house. A sleeping loft above the bathroom & kitchen space provide enough space for a queen sized mattress. Two skylights and a small window open to provide ventilation in the loft. Flip-up steps provide access to the front door when the house is parked.

Included in this tiny house plan download are three files: (1) digital copy (.pdf) framing plan, (2) a materials list (.xls), and (3) the original SketchUp 3D drawing (.skp).

This is a family road trip tiny house design that sleeps four by Michael Janzen of Tiny House Design.

From time to time I daydream about taking my family on an extended road trip in a tiny house.  So just for fun, I drew this tiny house design and got a little carried away in the details.1

This is the Comptche 24 Tiny House on Wheels by Michael Janzen.

The Comptche is a 24-foot long tiny house on wheels with a 3/12 shed roof. It has a bathroom sized to fit a 32″ square shower stall, composting or standard toilet, and small wall mounted sink. Just outside the bathroom is a small kitchen. At one end of the house is a small bedroom ideally sized for a double bed – but could tightly accommodate a queen bed too. A sleeping loft is above the kitchen and bathroom with access from the main living space. This provides two separate sleeping spaces and a high ceiling in the bedroom. Two french doors with clerestory windows open onto the back bedroom and main living space from the right side of the house.

Plans to build your own version of it are also available. Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!

This is the Anchor Bay Tiny House by Michael Janzen.

It features a shed roof with a shape that makes it aerodynamic when you’re towing. This tiny house design even features an outdoor shower area which makes it perfect if you’re into the great outdoors.

At 16-feet, it’s really tiny! But you’ll still find a kitchen, bathroom, desk, and upstairs sleeping loft inside.

Plans to build your own version of it are also available. Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!

This year a lot has happened in the world of tiny houses including quite a bit of new books.

In this post I wanted to share some of my new favorites with you along with some of the classics.

Some of these books will inspire you with photos and others will be filled with valuable how to information.

You might still be gathering ideas for your future home or you might be eager to build up your construction skills.

Either way some of these books, if you don’t already own them, should help inspire you towards your dream tiny house.
