This is to announce the Carrack 1042 & 836 tiny house plans by Michael Janzen are currently on a limited time buy one, get one sale which ends May 27th (Monday) so I thought you should know. Update: the sale seems to have been extended (the sales link still works). So please enjoy before Michael closes it.

You might remember both of these plans because I’ve posted about both the 1042 and the 836. The 1042 is technically a park model tiny house, while the 836 is a 36-foot tiny house on wheels that’s easier to tow with a regular full-size pick-up truck. Which one do you like best? Would you want to use your tiny house as a travel trailer, or not?

This is a 36-foot tiny home you can build using these affordable tiny house plans by Michael Janzen of Tiny House Design. It’s the Carrack 836, which is a smaller version of the Carrack 1042, aka, the 420-square-foot ‘big tiny house’ you can build using these $39 downloadable plans.

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 you can build using these $39 downloadable tiny house plans 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 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).
