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…
Here at Tiny House Talk we like to share all kinds of homes to inspire you in your own tiny house journey.
The folks at Tiny Life Supply contacted us recently to tell us about their micro living shop and research hub, and on their website I found three great tiny house 3D Sketchup designs that you can borrow, modify and use to create your own home! There aren’t plans or step-by-step instructions on how to build the designs, but they might give you some ideas to incorporate into your future build.
This is a 10′ wide by 30′ long 300 sq. ft. tiny house design with additional space in the loft. One of my favorite features about it are that there’s a staircase (not a ladder) to the upstairs loft space.
And there’s enough room up there to have a king sized bed, too, which is great if you’re planning on sharing the space. Plus there’s an additional storage loft area behind the bed. This tiny house has plans for a total of 1400 watts of solar panels and a 150 gallon grey water collection system. More features include:
A combo washer/dryer under the staircase.
A wood burning stove.
A tankless water heater.
And much more. Take the entire 3D tour below. Please enjoy, leave your thoughts in the comments, and re-share if you feel called to. Thanks!
This is a 260 Sq. Ft. No Loft Tiny House Design by Ellie Epp who designed a 26′ long and 10′ wide tiny house and is now looking for someone to help build it. It started out as a house truck design but since 26′ length was needed she decided that it wouldn’t be easy to drive a truck at this length so the design evolved into a tiny home. Please enjoy and re-share below. 🙂
I like to live with a lot of light and a constant relation to the outdoors so there can never be too many windows. am a filmmaker so the desk has to take up a lot of space, and also like to work on my bed, which rules out a ladder. – so it’s a very personal design, but maybe there are others (other women?) who share these likings?
If you want to live in a tiny house the first piece of advice I’ve got for you is to take your time when designing your home. I’ve seen plenty of people design and build their first tiny home only to have to start all over later on because they didn’t think things through enough the first time around. That’s why I recommend spending time over here in our tiny house design 101 section which has free courses on how to create your own tailor made micro house.
SketchUp is another amazing tool (there’s a free version, too) that you can use to play around with any design ideas you might have. Or even just to mix and match ideas that you find here on our site or anywhere else as well. But enough design gibberish for now because right now I’d like to introduce you to Tuckerbox Homes, a relatively new tiny house design and construction project.
TuckerBox Homes: Designing & Building the Perfect Tiny House
So hopefully if you’re here you’ve already downloaded SketchUp and you’re ready to follow along. If not, you can do so right now. Then come back here to watch the video so you can watch, learn, pause and rewind when you have to, and most importantly do.
It’s important when you watch instructional videos like this to take the time to pause the video for a few minutes so you can practice and play around with the tasks you just learned. Otherwise, you’ll completely forget!
So don’t expect to go through the entire video all at once. For best results, bookmark this page. Take your time with each lesson inside. Mark off where you left off and come back to it later in between practice.
