The Ernford Tiny House

At just 14 feet in length, the Ernford is one of our tiniest tiny houses, but don’t let it’s size fool you, this house is extremely efficient in terms of design. By including a gambrel roof we were able to take advantage of the loft space.

  • Effective design for maximising the efficiency of the internal layout
  • Gambrel style roof increases the amount of available space in the loft
  • Easier & more cost effective to transport and cheaper to build

Living Room
The entry door leads directly into the living room and is flanked by two floor-to-ceiling closet/shelving units. The living area features two cosy armchairs, a mini gas fire heater and no less than four single-hung windows. This home also has space to include a wall-mounted folding table for (fine) dining. The Ernford also contains a partially vaulted ceiling over the living area, increasing the storage capacity of the loft.

The kitchen is compact but functional and features a 2-burner cook-top, a sink and an under-counter refrigerator. It also has wall cabinets, base cabinets, and shelving to cater for your storage needs. With three operable windows there’s no shortage of natural light and ventilation.

The most unusual feature of this tiny house is sandwiched between the living area and the kitchen – the bathroom! We placed the bathroom in the centre of the home to allow the kitchen to take full advantage of the gable end wall. A 2-foot-square shower can be installed and you have a variety of different toilet types (standard, RV, compost) which the home will be able to accommodate.

Sleeping/Storage Loft
One of the Ernfords best features is the loft. The barn style roof increases the amount of vertical and horizontal space, giving you a little more elbow room. It also has two half-round windows, space for a queen sized mattress and as previously mentioned, ample storage space.

This tiny house can be built on a either a 14′ x 6′ utility trailer, or a 14′ x 6′-6″ utility trailer.

All our tiny houses are built using advanced stick-frame construction techniques. A variety of different types of insulation can be installed, from sheep’s wool to expanded polystyrene. We also recommend the use of internal vapour barriers.


How you clad your tiny house is up to you, but we recommend sustainably harvested timber that’s been approved by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). Other cladding options include lightweight steel panels, and vinyl siding.


Our tiny houses are designed , and to meet the needs of many. That’s why we specify windows from Jeld Wen, an international company that specialises in the construction of quality doors and windows for a wide range of budgets.


There are many options for heating a tiny house. Some which have been installed in our tiny houses include the Morso 1440 wood burning stove, the Newport P-9000 stainless steel fireplace, and the Envi wall-panel heater.


Plumbing systems for a tiny house can be as complicated or simply as needed. Black and grey water tanks can be installed to create an RV-like system, while others prefer composting toilets to minimise their environmental impact.


A tiny house can be hooked up to the main grid, or you can decide to go off-grid and use solar panels to provide for your electrical needs. Some of our tiny house plans include PV-system schematics to help you along your way.


Our tiny houses are designed with standard-sized components in mind to minimise the amount of work, and cost to create your dream tiny home. All the main components (like the kitchen stove and sink) are specified in the plans.


We typically specify a painted drywall finish for the interior of our homes, but there’s nothing to stop you from installing timber cladding (a popular finish among tiny houses) or even tiles in your kitchen or bathroom.
