  For Julia, Katie, and Reagan  Preface  Since 2007 I’ve been obsessed with tiny house design. I’ve always been a bit biased toward minimalist and efficient design, but in 2007 I discovered the tiny house movement and was hooked.Fast forward to 2017 and some things still remain the same about the tiny house movement. The main core  values are still there. When you choose less over more, you’re choosing to rebalance your life in a direction that provides more freedom and happiness. This process requires choosing to let go of all but the most important things in your life; and our homes tend to be one of those important things. When you apply this practice to a home the things that can ususally go are rarely used possessions, rooms you rarely use, the time it takes to maintain it, and all the associated costs. What stays is pride in ownership, comfort, family, friends, fun, and security. A home that is right-sized provides a balance between all things and that’s what makes a home truly  valuable, regardless of the market price. I’ve designed many tiny houses over the past 10 years, and I have to admit, it can still be a challenge to  visualize the right size home without drawing a lot of pictures. I think this is true for many people.I drew this collection of 101 tiny house designs to help people find their right-sized home. Inside you’ll find 101 design concepts from 12 to 32 feet long. You’ll see a  variety of styles, layouts, themes, and common patterns.  Throughout the book, I’ll point out any notable details and features.  You’ll also see families of designs that share similar traits but are different sizes. This should help show how function changes as size increases.Designing a tiny house is a balancing act, especially for the smallest homes. For example, a large kitchen or bathroom can eat up space that could have otherwise been used for seating, dining, or sleeping. So each layout is the result of a series of choices and compromises.If you’re designing your own home while browsing the designs here, I suggest making a list - or even sketches - of the features that are most important to you. For example, if you know that you want a big kitchen with full-size appliances, draw it first so you know what kind of space it requires. Then arrange everything else around these core elements. As you turn the pages you’ll also notice some common elements in the drawings, like chairs, tables, cabinets, toilets, sinks, showers, ladders, stairs, windows, and doors. I decided early on that I’d use common elements between the designs to make it easier to compare them without causing confusion by introducing an infinite array of differently sized furnishings. Most everything is drawn on a 2-foot grid. For example, the ‘comfy chair’ is 2’ x 2’, as are most of the cabinets and appliance. Most of the showers and tubs are at least 32” in both directions. The windows are typically sized on even 1-foot increments. The French doors are all 5-feet wide and 82” tall. The single exterior entry doors are 32” wide and 82” tall. All interior doors are pocket doors and most are exactly 2-feet wide. You may also notice that I’ve used only two roof pitches, 10/12 (40°) and 3/12 (14°). The steeper 10/12 pitch looks great for traditional gable roofs. The shallower 3/12 pitch allows the use of a wider selection of roofing materials than a shallower pitch. Roofing manufactures specify the minimum pitch for their products. You are more likely to find roofing choices that require slopes no shallower than a 3/12 pitch. So as a practical solution, I tend to avoid roofs flatter than 3/12. All the houses are 8’ 6” wide and under 13’ 6” tall. These are the most common highway limits for trailers.It’s also worth mentioning my somewhat odd  way of describing which walls are the front and back walls of a tiny house. I always refer to the front wall as the wall on the back of the trailer. So when facing the back of the trailer, the right and left walls are literally the walls to your right and left. The back wall is the one over the trailer tongue, even when the front door is there. I chose to do this years ago to help communicate consistently.  This is a book of ideas and illustrations for tiny house dreamers. I hope you enjoy this peek into a tiny house designer’s mind & sketchbook. I had a ton of fun drawing it and hope you find inspiration here too!  12-Foot Tiny House Designs - 114-Foot Tiny House Designs - 5116-Foot Tiny House Designs - 9318-Foot Tiny House Designs - 14320-Foot Tiny House Designs - 18522-Foot Tiny House Designs - 23524-Foot Tiny House Designs - 27328-Foot Tiny House Designs - 323 32-Foot Tiny House Designs - 373 Contents
