Tiny Houses in Many Styles

Tiny Houses in Many Styles
A small package with a big idea.
The Homestead Partners are at it again, designing diminutive dwellings for use as workshop, office, guest, granny or in-law unit. There are numerous new plans, each in a different architectural style: Craftsman, Cottage, Mediterranean, and Modern. The architects vividly describe how each might be used, starting with French doors in each case.

For example, if a little Mediterranean cottage is what you want, such as Plan 917-31:

"French doors for moving in the sleeper sofa and letting in the morning air with your first cup of coffee. Private toilet and shower room. A small but useful closet for your weekend jeans and t-shirts. 8 feet of counter space with sink and room for a small microwave, plus under counter storage with room for a small fridge to cool last night's leftover pizza and your choice of beverage. Plenty of windows for ample daylight to read that book you heard reviewed on the radio.

16' Wide x 12' Deep Overall Dimension to fit nicely in your backyard. 192 square feet total interior space (not including optional Loft). 9' x 11' (99 square feet) of open floor space for furnishing to your needs and liking. Ceiling heights and volume vary with each design style. The optional Loft is 75 square feet. The Loft is not legally occupiable space."

Or if it's a modern studio you require, as in Plan 917-27:

"French doors for moving that old desk or large easel in and out, and for letting in the evening air. Private toilet room with hand sink so you don't have to run back to your house. 8 feet of counter space with sink and room for a small microwave, plus under counter storage with room for a small fridge to cool your choice of beverage or for cooling your heels. Plenty of windows for ample daylight to see your work and to gaze outside for inspiration."

Or maybe a Craftsman style workshop, as in Plan 917-25:

"French doors for moving large items in and out, or for letting in the evening air. 11 feet of work counter space with sink and under counter storage (or maybe even a small fridge to cool your choice of beverage). Plenty of windows for ample daylight to see what you're working on."

Another approach might be to build several different units and create a compound. Which reminds me that, as the saying goes, "it takes a village..."
