What the Plans Include
- Plans for a 24′ x 8.5′ foot modern tiny house design with eaves that extend out to 9 foot, six inches. Read PAD’s blog post on tiny house towing to understand more about tiny house width.
- Detailed interior and exterior elevation drawings for all sides
- Trailer connection details
- Wall framing elevations
- Roof framing plans
- Cross sections of wall, roof and floor
- Details for corners, windows, the door, and light block flashing
- Suggested materials list for siding and framing
- A basic wiring diagram
- Appliance placement and suggestions
- Double loft placements
- Full kitchen
- Lots of creative storage solutions
- An egress window in the loft so it can be RV certified
- A thoroughly energy efficient design. These plans include details for a unique, full R7 thermally broken floor assembly that could effectively host radiant floor heat (most floors would lose radiant heat warmth through contact with the metal trailer), but please note that radiant heat floor products or installation instructions are not a part of these plans.
- Appliance and fixture recommendations to match the home shown in the pictures
- A small exterior bump-out offers additional storage
These plans do not include electrical diagrams, plumbing diagrams, or exterior finish materials. They don’t include construction details for the ladder shown leading to the small loft, or for the simple porch roof shown in the photos. But if you want a porch roof, we suggest that you mount it to the house after it is parked and avoid traveling with it attached. These plans are a license to build one house, and contain all of the essential nuts and bolts to get you a solid, extremely energy-efficient tiny home that is completely customizable to your tastes.
Weight and Trailer Considerations
When choosing a trailer for this house, Shelter Wise recommends 7,000 lb axles each, for a 14,000 lb total carrying capacity. The trailer will still carry at 10,000 lb GVWR (Gross vehicle weight rating) but will travel better and safer with higher rated axles. Iron Eagle Trailers builds our favorite tiny house trailers out there, and Derin from Shelter Wise and Dee from PAD even helped them design their trailers to be perfect for tiny homes. Tell them PAD sent you, and you’ll get $50 off your order.
With all of our plans, we recommend a copy of Go House Go, our how-to manual for building a tiny house on wheels. It’s the book Dee wished existed when she built her little house, and she wrote it to save everybody else all the time and trouble that she went through to figure out how to build smart and safe.
