The B-53 can be built as a 3 bedroom (874 sq. ft) or 2 bedroom (777 sq. ft) house (See plan 915-1). The 3rd bedroom is an optional add-on bedroom that is on the first floor level. The top floor houses two additional bedrooms. Each story of the house is 7'6" tall at its peak. The upstairs bedrooms have sloped ceilings on the sides, and the closets are positioned in the lower ceiling space.
The kitchen maximizes space and includes a dishwasher, full size range with oven, and built in microwave. The tank-less on demand water heater ensures that you never run out of hot water, and tucks away completely out of view. A stacking washer and dryer flank the kitchen. A small fireplace is tucked nicely in the corner of the great room
This house is not designed to be portable and comes with a post and pier foundation. However, it is possible to put this house on a slab foundation or even over a basement.

The year was 1999 when our first tiny home was mounted to a trailer. The little home was named Tumbleweed because it had roots and was mobile at the same time. And in that moment, the seeds for a housing revolution were planted.

All house plans on Houseplans.com are designed to conform to the building codes from when and where the original house was designed.
In addition to the house plans you order, you may also need a site plan that shows where the house is going to be located on the property. You might also need beams sized to accommodate roof loads specific to your region. Your home builder can usually help you with this. You may also need a septic design unless your lot is served by a sanitary sewer system. Many areas now have area-specific energy codes that also have to be followed. This normally involves filling out a simple form providing documentation that your house plans are in compliance.
In some regions, there is a second step you will need to take to ensure your house plans are in compliance with local codes. Some areas of North America have very strict engineering requirements. Examples of this would be, but not limited to, earthquake-prone areas of California and the Pacific Coast, hurricane risk areas of the Florida, Gulf & Carolina Coasts. New York, New Jersey, Nevada, and parts of Illinois require review by a local professional as well. If you are building in these areas, it is most likely you will need to hire a state licensed structural engineer to analyze the design and provide additional drawings and calculations required by your building department. If you aren’t sure, building departments typically have a handout they will give you listing all of the items they require to submit for and obtain a building permit.
Additionally, stock plans do not have a professional stamp attached. If your building department requires one, they will only accept a stamp from a professional licensed in the state where you plan to build. In this case, you will need to take your house plans to a local engineer or architect for review and stamping. In addition, plans which are used to construct homes in Nevada are required to be drawn by a licensed Nevada architect.
