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 the “All I Own House” designed by PKMN Architectures for Yolanda.

On the outside you can see this is a standard single-family home in Madrid, but when you walk inside you’ll find an amazing multi-functional space. By using storage shelves on casters, Yolanda can create a living room, bedroom and kitchen by sliding her walls across the floor. Where’s the bed? It’s tucked in one of the units and folds out Murphy-style.

Check out the pictures and then enjoy the video to see her home “in action.”
