Tiny house plans with loft

Our wooden tiny house plans with loft Ginger is a functional house with a traditional design of cozy wooden home with pitcher gable roof, front porch and a loft. At the back located main entrance will lead you inside, with bathroom being located on the left. From the other side of the same wall small kitchen counter is attached and the space opens into the main central room, which can serve as a dining room or living room. The main, front façade of Ginger is covered in full width with windows or door with glass part leading to the front porch. This together with another three windows on side walls make the central room a great space for daytime activities, be it socializing or more private and relaxing moments. The front porch is a great addition, as you can access it directly from this central space, it is fenced and fully covered, so you can enjoy fresh air and great views even if the weather is not perfect. A little staircase on the side provides access to the loft, which is very warm and cozy while still leaving enough space for you to stand up and to have two bedrooms, with both gable end windows and skylights and its own storage space. The main storage room is at the back of the house accessible from the outside.

Is that possible if I ask for customed design from this house plan design? Like I would like have 1 bedroom on the 1st floor and 1 bedroom on the loft for son.
Oh..and flip the fireplace to the right. Would it be possible to order a customed design? Thankyou.

Hello Naomi, thank you for your interest! Yes, it is absolutely possible to order a custom design. The price is then understandably higher, because even seemingly small changes mean few days of work. So based on what you wrote, it would be around approximately 650 USD for the plans, but it really depends on the particular changes. The best thing to do is to email me at [email protected] with detailed description of what you have in mind and then I will be able to tell you the exact price for that.

I am considering a couple of plans and was wondering what the length of the wall in the kitchen area is. Just hoping the wall is long enough for the appliances / cabinets.

Hi Jacob, happy to hear you’re considering our plans!
The wall is 6′-4 1/8″ long (approximately 1,7 meters).

Hello, do you think that the necessary building material/tools and metrical sizes, etc. could be found in Italy where I live and would like to build one of these? Thank you

11 months 13 days ago

Yes, of course. I build this way in other European countries most of these structures!

Taking in consideration that it will be build by a person that I will use somebody that knows about construction. How strong or steady will be for wind. I’m not talking about hurricane or tornadoes. Just we have in Texas or Arizona or even Oregon some strong wind. Thank you.

If you want it more resistant to wind just amplify wall/ roof/ floor bracing

Just curious what you would estimate the finishing cost to be after supplies? Is there a full capable bathroom?


1 year 1 day ago

It depends on the quality of the final works and material. Yes, there is a full capable bathroom.

Foremost, really love the house plan… quick question (one which may very well be answered somewhere on the website, but I haven’t read)… Does the DIY cost include appliances, plumbing and electricity, etcetera? Or is it just the structure itself and everything else is extra? Thank you ahead of time for providing this information. Elizabeth

Hello Ellizabeth,
yes, the construction plans include simple drain/ water/ electricity drawings.

Hi Joshua,
I have the same question as Elizabeth. While systems like plumbing and electrical may be mapped out in your plans, what is included in the build cost of $9,450 cited on the product page? Does that amount only include the shell, or does it include stove, flooring, appliances, fixtures, interior doors, windows, etc.?

We really like the design but need a better understanding of budget. Also, do you possibly have photos or websites showing actual builds of this model?


9 months 29 days ago

Hi Brenda,
the cited estimated cost includes the whole construction, including windows, doors, finishes, appliances, etc. The estimation is based on the size of floor area, however a proper pricing can be only done by the construction firm / carpenter / etc. taking into consideration local conditions and specific criteria, which I am not able to predict. The construction plans and documentation you can purchase from us provide guidelines to detailed pricing. In case you decide not to build anything according to them, you can let us know and we will refund you the money. As for photos, unfortunately we do not have any of this model built. You can try to look at our references section to see photos of different models built

Hey Josh,
Do you know any states that allows people to build tiny houses? Also is it possible to make the base of the house flat? I think the house would really pop with some flowers near the porch? I am interested in buying the plan and thats the only thing holding me back.

1 year 3 months ago

of course, the base of the house can be flat. It´s just adaptable to sloping site.

Could you also add a garage to the back by chance?

It depends on the situation..
