We are humbled…

Welcome to Humble Homes – we are ‘humbled’ by your presence! Err… that’s enough of the cheesiness (for now), but seriously, we’d like to extend a warm welcome to you for visiting our site. As you may notice this is our first blog post, so forgive us if it’s a little rough around the edges.


Humble Homes was created to provide people with high quality, professional plans at a price that you may well not find elsewhere (or at least is relatively difficult to find). Why are our plans so cheap? Well, there are two main reasons:

  1. We love the small house movement and want to see it flourish – not just in North America, but also in Europe where we are based.
  2. We’ve often come across comments like “I’m saving to buy the plans”. We want to take the ‘saving for plans’ out of the equation when it comes to your small home and get you on the way to building it.

In addition to our awesome, super-duper cheap house plans, we’re also going to be offering a customisation of house plans service, where we will tailor fit house plans just for you (at a price of course, but we’ll keep it competitive/less expensive than anyone else).


On top of our awesome, super-duper cheap house plans and customisation service, we’re also going to be publishing illustrated construction guides to help get you on your way. These will be available in e-book format only as we’d like to avoid unnecessary carbon emissions and save some trees, and hey, it also reduces the cost for our customers!

We’re currently trying to get this site up and running ASAP. While you’re waiting, why not bookmark us and come back and pay us a visit at a later date.


So there we have it, our first blog post. If you have any questions, send us an email.

Thanks for stopping by and do pay us a visit again sometime soon.
