Small cabin floor plans

Bettie, named after famous pin-up girl Bettie Page and inspired by typical Canadian cabins, is among our most popular small cabin plans and tiny house designs. It is lovely one storey small house, which stands on ground screw foundations and is little bit elevated. There is a front porch fully covered under its pitched roof, from which door leads into the cabin. Inside, Bettie is divided by partition wall with doors into two equally sized rooms and has windows on all four sides, including the one overlooking the front porch. This provides many possibilities regarding the interior space; one room can serve as a bedroom and the other one as social / living-room place, one of them can be your cozy secret relaxing place, while the other is where you’ll hang out with your friends or family, or any other arrangement that works best for you.

Construction PDF plans

Regarding materials, DIY cabin Bettie has a timber frame core. Walls and roof cladding, as well as floor can be made of wooden planks. Ply wood or OSB boards are also possible options to use for some of the layers and metal sheathing is advisable on top of boards covering the simple roof truss. The pitched roof overhangs on both sides of the cabin creating a little space, which can be used for example to store wood for your wood burning stove, gardening equipment, etc. You can always feel encouraged to adjust our small cabin floor plans in any way you wish or even use them as a sole inspiration for your own ideas in order to get the small cabin of your dreams.

Hi Joshua!

I just bought these plans and they look great, but I have a question. Is it possible to switch out 2×4’s with 2×6’s when I go to build this cabin? I’d like to add insulation with a higher R value and need 2×6’s to do that. Thanks!

Hi Patrice!
Thank you for your purchase.
No worries, It can be changed with 2×6 without any problems..
