The first Houseplans.com tiny home has already been completed. It's Plan 48-641 (shown below as built in Detroit, and in another version at the top of this post) a 300-square-foot Tudor-style home that features a fireplace, a large front window and a spacious back deck for outdoor living space, and was finished in November 2016. Originally designed as a guest house, it's basically one space for living/sleeping/cooking, with a separate bathroom at the back.
Design Tips for Open Floor Plans. Define spaces with furniture, rugs and lighting. Use Furnishings and Lighting to Define Areas. Carve out separate functional spaces using furniture. For example, place a sofa backed with a console table outside the kitchen to delineate the start of the living room. Further define the living room by placing a rug in the center of that space. Lighting also helps to define different parts of a room. Anchor a dining table with a chandelier, or place a large ceiling fan in the center of the living space.
Site lines are something else to consider. It’s nice at a big party when you can see from one room to another, especially if you are the host. If there’s someone you really want to connect with, you may be able to spot when that person is free. Or maybe there are two people you’d like to introduce. You can see whether they are in the same general vicinity.
While we’re at it, consider making the hallways and doorways generously sized. Retiring Boomers will certainly appreciate the efforts to make the house easy to get around in and easy to use. So make sure there are features such as zero threshold showers, well placed and secure grab bars and easily accessed storage. Plan 481-7, shown above, incorporates these types of features with one floor living, large doors to generous outdoor spaces as well as the split bedroom floor plan making it ideal for a retired Boomer.
