Tiny House Plans Oregon
Welcome! You've reached the finest selection of tiny house plans in Oregon. If you're here, you probably want to learn more about tiny homes and how we can help you achieve the dream of building your very own. First, a word about what constitutes a tiny house. The name is self-explanatory, but there are a few parameters that most tiny homes have to fulfill to be considered such. Size is an obvious component. Most tiny homes fall somewhere between 100 square feet and 600 square feet in area, but size isn't the only criteria that matters. To be considered a tiny house, it has to be a fully functional living space, with all the right amenities.
Each of our tiny house plans includes separate living, sleeping dining, and bathing areas, ensuring that they fit the bill. They might be small, but they don't lack for functionality. Our kitchens are also completely equipped, ready for full-sized refrigerators, electric ranges, cabinets, dishwashers, and everything else you need to cook in style. Our plans make it possible to integrate your tiny house directly with all relevant utilities, making them truly independent.
You can use your tiny house as a retirement home, vacation spot, rental property, or even a primary residence. The benefits of tiny house living can hardly be overstated. Renting out your tiny home is a great option for a steady side income stream. Owners of tiny homes who also live in their house enjoy even more significant financial benefit, though. A majority have no mortgage. They pay less on maintenance and overhead. They have less debt. They earn more annually than the average American. As a result, They can save more and enjoy an increased level of financial freedom throughout their lives. In turn, this opens up opportunities for other forms of freedom. Tiny house owners, on average, are less stressed and better educated than their normal house counterparts. Downsizing might take some getting used to, but it's hard to deny the advantages.
How do you make this dream a reality? It starts with making sure building a tiny house is legal in your area. Many locales have rules limiting their construction, so you want to make sure that you are in compliance with these. To this end, we've tailored our process to help. The documentation we've developed will help you when you are checking with the building department in your area about permitting. There's a wide range of codes that a new construction must adhere to. Instead of dealing with an architect or engineer to develop a plan from scratch that conforms to the right standards, you can use our plans that have been designed to specifically address them. Our plans allow even an average person with limited experience dealing with building and zoning laws to present a project with confidence. We make sure to customize your documents for your lot and local conditions as well, further streamlining the process.
In addition, we can also provide material price lists and purchase orders for the model(s) of your choice. This comprehensive list shows all the construction materials you will need to build a design, along with estimates on how much the materials will coast. Using data from national retailers and carefully monitored research, we continue to update these estimates to provide the most accurate representations possible. The purchase orders that we provide make it easy to purchase the materials. We include quantities, descriptions, and specifications in the purchase orders, so you need only send off your requests to the vendor.
These factors are what make our tiny house projects ideal for the do-it-yourself builder. We've carefully refined our methods so that you can jump in as quickly as possible, even with limited experience. If you're willing to take the time to master the varied skills required to erect a small building from scratch, it's well within your power to do so. It is a time-consuming process—well over 400 hours for most beginners—but the satisfaction that comes from creating something with your own two hands is often well worth the investment. If you feel you don't have the time or skill, however, you can easily hand our documentation over to a veteran builder who can assist. You'll have to make sure you're following your local regulation in regards to hiring contractors, but as long as everything's on the up and up, our building plans and material lists will make it a simple matter for them to stay on schedule and get your home built in a timely fashion.
If you need any additional information from us at any time during the process, you need only ask. We are available via phone or email and are more than willing to provide suggestions and advice regarding your specific concerns. We hope you find what you're looking for among our tiny house gallery. If you think a simpler project might be more to your liking, we welcome you to check out our selection of backyard cottages.
