This 240 sq. ft. mountain hideout is a tiny house design guest post by Robert Olson

Building a secluded off grid cabin is a dream I share with many others. One of these days its gonna happen. Until that time comes, I enjoy sharing ideas.

Below is a 12 x 20 rough draft plan I put together. I call this plan the Mountain Hideout due to its intended remote location.

Hi Alex and Tiny House Newsletter readers… Like you, I love tinkering around designing/building tiny houses especially as small as a house as possible but still have all the conveniences that you find in a ‘McMansion’.

I know the idea about tiny living is supposed to be living with less but if you can cram everything into a small- less than 300 sq. ft.- moveable home without making it claustrophobic…

Why not, right?

So here I’m showing you a 32′ long tiny house design I’ve recently finished working on. Let me know what ya think in the comments down below!

32′ Tiny House Floor Plan Design

I’d also like to show you a 28′ design that’s obviously a bit shorter. It has less square footage but it could be used as a 3 bedroom young family tiny home or just a backyard guest building by utilizing two sleeping lofts. Check it out and let me know what you think below:

I’ve always wanted to draw out my own tiny house plans.

One of them has always been one for a person like me who works from home.

Whether you’re an author, writer, blogger, artist, cartoonist, musician, freelancer, or accountant…

Wouldn’t a backyard tiny house to work in be awesome? I think so.

The WorkHaus Tiny House

So I decided to create the WorkHaus Tiny House Design. It’s a simple 7’x11′ structure used to work in.

It can be built on a regular foundation as a shed in a backyard or it’s small enough to be built on a 10 ft. single axle utility trailer much like the XS House from Tumbleweed.

Every Thursday I’ll be featuring a random set of tiny house plans here on Tiny House Talk.

Today I’m introducing you to Tumbleweed’s Beavan Box Bungalow design.

Beavan Box Bungalow Tiny House Plans

The Beavan is one of Tumbleweed Houses latest designs in the Box Bungalow category.

As you may already know all of this company’s house plans are designed by Jay Shafer, who has been living happily in really small spaces since 1997.

That’s over ten years of extremely simple living. That’s why he’s #1 when it comes to designing micro sized spaces for humans.

Jay Shafer and Tumbleweed Tiny Houses

Jay is at the forefront of today’s tiny house movement not because he is the first person to live so simply but because he has successfully shared his amazing ideas with the world.

In his Small House Book, he shows you the current generous loopholes which allow you to bypass minimum size housing building code restrictions in most areas.

The Beavan Box Bungalow

Let’s take a close look at this beautiful design which was recently featured on HGTV’s Design Star.

I made these tiny house floor plans a while back.

I never got around to publishing them until now.

It’s based on a 19′ by 8′ dimension making it a roomy tiny house.

I hope you enjoy and please let me know your favorite in the comments down below.

I know the loft view isn’t perfect–somehow I messed up with dimensions and missed the wood flooring–but I think you get the idea. I’ll get better I promise.

These floor plans give you a visual of what living in a tiny house would be like. It’s also good for organizing/planning furniture, kitchens, bathrooms and windows.
