This version is still pretty big, but it’s easier to tow, and legal to do so without a permit, kind of like a travel trailer. It’s 8′ 6″ wide, 36′ long, and 13’6″ tall. The design is flexible, so you can sort of make the space work best for you. I wonder what yours would look like…
This is a larger than usual tiny house from Michael Janzen. It’s called the 10×42 Carrack because, well, it’s 10-feet by 42-feet. It’s a big tiny house on wheels, technically would be classified as a park model. This type of unit is great if you want to go tiny, but not too tiny.
It’s comfortable, spacious, and still mobile if you ever really wanted or needed to move. The Carrack 1042 is part of Michael Janzen’s new generation of tiny house designs for 2019. Michael says, “It’s wider and longer than most tiny houses but a project sized for many do-it-yourselfers.”
This is the Philo 12 Tiny House on Wheels. It’s a retired tiny house design by Michael Janzen of Tiny House Design.
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.
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
People ask us all the time how we can live together in 120 square feet. It is asked as though people are surprised that a couple would even have any interest in being that close to one another. We always smile and laugh politely and tell them that we have 15 acres so we always have an exit. In reality, we’ve never had any problems living in our tiny house. That isn’t to say we haven’t fought, but we also fought in a 2700 square foot house and the dynamics don’t really change.
So when I was talking with Alex here at Tiny House Talk about my next few topics and he suggested Tiny House Plans for Couples, I was intrigued. As far as I am concerned the best tiny house for a couple is whatever tiny house they want to live in. But, I accepted the challenge and here are three tiny house plans that I think can be great for couples.
The Tarleton by Tumbleweed Tiny House. Okay, I am a bit biased. Our tiny house is a Tarleton that we modified slightly as we built it. I think this 120 square foot home is perfect and has everything two people need: a reasonably sized kitchen, a bathroom with a shower, a nice sitting area, and a loft. Friends came to visit recently who hadn’t yet been to the tiny house and they commented on how much bigger it was than they thought. It is a pretty spacious little house that is designed well.

Take a look at my other two favorite tiny house plans for couples below:
