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.
To make the process move along as fast and inexpensively as possible Dean acted as his own contractor. He hired all the subs. "It is ideal to be your own contractor because most contractors are not on the same motivation line as you are. It's costing you money to have them sitting around." The architectural, engineering, and permitting process took about four months. Construction took about three and a half months.
Losing wall space for your photos and artwork is another good reason to keep a wall intact. Fewer walls also means fewer electrical outlets; concealing wires in a large, open space can be tricky. Finally, if you hate seeing a mess, open-concept living might not be for you, unless you live alone or have roommates who are also neat freaks. Toy chaos or messy kitchens are easily seen in open floor plans. Staying tidy, or at least having proper storage, is key for open-concept living.
Homes currently under construction include Plan 915-7, a cozy 310-square foot cottage with an appealing front stoop and a front bump-out with several antique-style paned windows; Plan 915-10, a cute 356-square-foot, shingled bungalow with a neighborly front porch, an open feeling and lots of light; Plan 890-2, a 320-square-foot modern-style cottage with an inviting front porch, an L-shaped kitchenette and clerestory windows for added light; and Plan 915-3, a charming, classic American clapboard cottage with a welcoming front porch, plenty of tall windows and a fireplace.
