Update & Images Of The ‘Bedroom House’!

Given that our floor plans for a downstairs bedroom were generally well received, we’ve gone ahead and produced some images to give you a better idea of the home! We’re also going to produce a set of plans for both Option A and Option B (if you have no idea what we’re talking about, click here to read our previous blog post).


This home is part of our ongoing effort to make tiny houses more accessible and to address Tiny House Blog’s 2012 Design Challenge. Our ‘Bedroom Home’ (again, like the McG Loft, the name’s only temporary!) is approximately 21′ in length by 8′-4″ in width. And if built onto a 2′ high trailer, the home will be about 13′-4″ in height, making it suitable for road travel in North America, the UK and Europe.

This home features premium aluminium windows, wood swinging patio doors, feather edge siding, exposed loft joists, skylight windows, and a Belfast Sink (don’t worry you can install a different sink if you don’t like it!). Oh, and we’ve also installed a little half-round dormer window over the entrance door.


We’re hoping to have the plans completed and on sale within a months time.

  1. Love the idea of this house. I am curious about the depth of cabinetry opposite the sink/fridge side. Is it deep enough to allow for a galley style kitchen so one can have a taller fridge and a stove? Maybe even a washer/dryer combo?

    1. Hey Nicole!

      The cabinets opposite the fridge/sink are 1′ deep. You could install 2′ deep cabinets allowing you to fit-out the home with the taller fridge, stove, and the dryer/washer, but the the bi-fold door would have to be reduced from 30 inches in width to around 24 inches in width. It’s just a matter of what you need/want more!

  2. Jonathan here – been looking for a plan like this for months. I think there is a great option here for a family plan with two lofts above and the parents bedroom below. I might just have to have your team pimp this one out for me by giving it the McG roof and it would be perfect for my son, daughter and I.

    1. Hey Jonathan – It’s great that you’re considering tiny houses. Having the two enclosed lofts would definitely give everyone their own little space and privacy. And having a shallower roof pitch would be great for maximising the available space!
