Cass Community Social Services had certain criteria in mind for their tiny homes. We looked for comfortable, livable homes and wanted variety in our plans, Fowler says. Distinctive character was important as well. “We were drawn to one-story homes with ample porches or decks and wanted at least one ‘standout feature’ in each house,” such as the metal roof on one house, and the stained-glass window in another. “We like a flood of light, so we wanted many windows on most or all of the walls,” Fowler adds. CCSS also wanted relatively accessible floor plans ranging from 250-425 square feet. Each tiny home features a kitchen, bathroom and bedroom.
Specialty Storage One of homebuyers’ biggest regrets is that they didn’t get enough storage space. Astute designers have answered that demand with over-sized utility rooms and pantries, big walk-in closets, and garage storage systems. Now they are including custom storage spaces everywhere. You can find storage for wine (Plan 888-17), cookbooks, and mobile devices in the kitchen. Binkley included drawers under stairs and benches in his award-winning homes at Laureate Park in Orlando.
To keep costs down on his kitchen he ordered cabinets and had them fully assembled prior to shipment. He says it costs more to hire someone to assemble the cabinets than to buy them already put together. Instead of buying a slab of granite, he purchased granite squares for $4/$5 per square foot. The kitchen counter ended up being roughly $200 in addition to the cost of labor to lay the tiles.
Don’t assume every floor plan fits your lifestyle: One of the biggest mistakes when choosing the right floor plan is that you forget to picture your own family cooking in the kitchen or you don’t take into consideration how your bad back may not like going up 3 flights of stairs throughout the day. Assess your lifestyle before choosing a floor plan. Do you like a single story or multistory home? Do you prefer an open floor plan or are individual rooms with partitions better? Determine what you have become accustomed to in a comfortable home.
