Today I wanted to show you Jay Shafer’s Weller tiny house design.
It’s a 115 square feet gabled cabin designed to be built on a 7′ x 16′ trailer.
This home embraces classical geometry which Jay and his Four Lights Tiny Houses are famous for.
What I like best about it is the traditional craftsman bungalow style.
This isn’t the most inexpensive tiny home because it’s a quality designer house but it’s still made to be affordable to ordinary folks like you and me who might want a lot of styles to go with their future little house.
Another thing I really like that you might also enjoy is the fact that you can use any of Jay’s component furnishings for little houses in this design and any of his other designs.

Weller Tiny House Floor Plan
The Weller would cost you approximately $18,800 in materials to build yourself if you wanted a completely furnished version of it on a trailer. But remember that this estimate does not include paying labor. If you built it on a foundation instead of a trailer it would cost around $15,300. (Source)
If you only wanted to build the shell on wheels (unfinished) it would cost you around $12,700 in materials. Without a trailer, it would cost around $9,300. (Source)
“The “furnished” house plans include a bathroom of 21” W x 53” L; a great room of 6’ x 6’ (avg.); a 54” x 46” kitchen and a sleeping loft of just 75” W x 96 ”L x 33” H. Like the Gifford, two skylights over the pillows make the loft feel much bigger. There’s a dining nook and a stainless steel fireplace by Dickinson Marine. A twin-sized bed provides space for a (presumably) single occupant to sleep downstairs. A sleeping loft provides ample sleeping room for 2 guests (not to mention the fold-out sleeping chair in the great room for another one).” (Source)
