The Ernford

Today (or tonight depending on what side of the globe you’re on) we’d like to introduce you to The Ernford. At 14′ by 6′-6″ the Ernford contains the smallest footprint of all our homes.


So lets get started with the tour! In our typical style, the entry door is flanked by two floor-to-ceiling closet/shelving units and seeing as this is our small model, it’s no surprise that it also has the smallest living area. But don’t worry, we still managed to fit in your two cosy armchairs, a mini gas fire heater, and plenty of leg room for that lazy Sunday afternoon snooze on the couch. Like the PB-63 and the Berneil, this home also has the option of including a wall-mounted folding table for (fine) dining.

Unlike our other homes the Ernford contains a partially vaulted ceiling over the living area – increasing the storage capacity of the loft.


Perhaps the most unusual feature of this home is the bathroom – it’s sandwiched between the living area and the kitchen! Is this unhygienic? We think not, and believe that the cleanliness of a home is down to the occupant, not the location of the bathroom. The bathroom is shown in the pictures without any door – we’ve decided to leave that up to you. Whether or not you want to install doors, privacy curtains, or nothing at all (oh my!) is up to you. We personally like the open plan feel, but it might not be the best idea when your neighbours decide to call round for a visit.

By placing the bathroom in the centre of the home the kitchen is able to make use of the gable end wall. Like all our homes it includes a sink, fridge, cook-top, base and wall cabinets.


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.

That concludes our tour of the Ernford. If you’d like more information or to purchase the plans, check out the Ernford plan’s page.
