Juko recently contacted me to share her progress on her tiny house build. Once it is complete she plans to move it to a 23 acre redwood forest. I don’t know about you but that sounds pretty awesome to me! I can only imagine waking up in that environment every day.
I’ve only just now started to read her blog but I am really enjoying it. I love what she has done with her house so far. In one of her posts she talks about her experience with various tiny house plans including mine. I absolutely love hearing about helping others and it is by far the primary reason I’m involved with tiny houses.

…except for installing a light fixture above the front door and painting the front door. Oh, and then there is that small matter of a front porch deck. But I’m still saying it’s done
My dad has been working on the house a few hours a day for a few days a week ever since I left. He figured there was no point in rushing it since he knew I would be gone for a couple of months. Speaking of which I should be announcing the dates soon for the open house. It will probably be October 15th but I’m not entirely certain. I’ll let you know soon.
All of the interior wood is also installed except for the ceiling of the dormers.
Also, I was recently contacted by Denise, who purchased my plans and is using them as reference material while she and her husband build their own tiny house. Very exciting to see their progress. They started a blog at http://www.ourtinyweekender.blogspot.com/ so be sure to check that out.
Finally, on a side note, my wife recently delivered the latest tiny home builder into the world. Click here if you are into seeing other people’s kids

I finally put the finishing touches on my second plan package and it is now available for purchase.
The Tiny Living design consists of a large family room with vaulted ceilings and large dormers on either side of the room. The entryway in situated at the back of the trailer allowing for a spacious 7 foot sleeping loft at the front. Under the sleeping loft is the bathroom and the kitchen. The total length of the house is 20 feet making it large enough to live comfortably yet small enough to easily tow.
This package includes:
- The Tiny House Construction Guide. This is a 64 page book consisting of over 107 color pictures and 23 chapters detailing all of the various stages of construction. This information is not specific to any particular set of plans and would be pertinent to anyone building a tiny house. This has been completely rewritten from the first version I released and includes a tremendous amount of useful information.
- A 64 page printable set of plans organized in the order in which the work should be completed.
- An electrical diagram showing the placement of all the switches and outlets.
- A materials list detailing all of the items that would need to be purchased to build this tiny house. Having this information alone can save you well over the cost of the plans, which I explain how in the book. This list now includes the store description for most items to reduce ambiguity when you hand it over to place your order.
- The SketchUp model that you can navigate in 3D to take any measurement and see how every board fits together. You can even import furniture into SketchUp to see what your house will look like once complete. Having the model also allows for you to make any modifications that you want and then recreate the plans.
- Free updates

The Tiny House Construction Guide is also available separately for those who are not quite sure which plans best suit them but are interested in learning more about building a tiny home. (if at a later time you decide to purchase plans a majority of the cost of the book can be applied to the plans)

In the coming weeks I will be updating my original set of plans to include the latest edition of the Tiny House Construction Guide, an updated materials list (with store descriptions), and a couple very minor modifications to the plans themselves. The ‘Tiny Retirement’ plans have now been updated
For those of you who have already purchased the first set of plans, expect to get an email from me soon with a link to your free update. Links to the update have been sent
And finally, I have a new website that I will also be launching in the coming weeks so be on the lookout for that. It’s launched! Check it out at http://www.tinyhomebuilders.com/
