ETSY sells a tiny home plan for $95, and the entire budget cottage includes two bedrooms and a loft.
Tiny houses are growing in popularity as Americans try to save money on their monthly expenses.
While traditional homes typically sell for $300,000, tiny homes can be built or purchased for anywhere from $10,000 to $100,000.
Several tiny houses have popped up for sale on Etsy, but now there are blueprints for building the tiny home of your dreams.
The 20×26 Adirondack Cabin plan even includes a loft bedroom.
In the blueprint, the plans show a 10×6 bathroom, a 10×9 bedroom, and a spacious kitchen/living room combo.
The kitchen area is 12×10, while the living room is slightly larger at 15×10.
The plans of the house even include a terrace on the outside.
Above the kitchen and living room is a loft that could serve as a bedroom if you converted the plans into a real home.
A building materials list is also included with the plans.
WHAT YOU SAY
Buyers who added the blueprint set to their cart praised its ease of use when it came to building their own house.
A satisfied customer wrote:
“I love these plans. Exceeded my expectations. Having been in the trade for many years, I see many plans on Etsy that, while aesthetically pleasing, are not practical for living or building, but these plans are structurally sound, easy to integrate, and very build friendly. This is perfect for what I was looking for to build on our ranch.”
No matter what type of foundation you choose, you are well prepared with the construction plans.
“Looks good,” said another buyer. “At this point I am very satisfied. Love the fact that the plans come with two sets of foundation plans (one on a concrete slab and the other on concrete pillars. I’ll go the slab route!! Thanks!”
SMALL HOUSE COMMUNITIES
While many prefer to buy the blueprints and build their tiny home themselves, you can also choose to join a pre-made community of tiny home dwellers.
