Tiny House Plans Washington
Welcome to our brilliant variety of tiny house plans, Washington! These fully independent offerings are just what you need if you're looking to downsize, and have plenty of other creative but practical uses as well. We hope you'll take a look at all our selections to find the perfect one, and take some time to read up about tiny houses and the role we're playing in making them a reality for all that want one.
What's constitutes a tiny house? They're much smaller than a traditional home but still larger than a simple exterior shed. Tiny homes generally occupy a space of 100-500 square feet, perhaps a bit larger if it's a two-story tiny house. They're fully independent, meaning they have their own spaces for living, sleeping, dining, and bathing, along with their own plumbing and electricity. You might be under the impression that you have to find a tiny home to purchase, but we've pioneered a different way to get in on the tiny dwelling lifestyle.
Using our building plans, you can build your tiny house on your own, or hire a skilled crew to do the work for you. We've already laid out the blueprints and building information, made lists of materials, estimated costs and developed purchased orders, and drafted the engineering documentation you'll need to get your permits. How you decide to tackle construction depends on you.
Do you have the space to build? This should come first and foremost on your checklist. Tiny homes might be small, but they will require their own plot of land. If you have a lot, you'll need to check the law in your area to make sure that you can build, and if there are any specific features that your house will need in order to be considered legal. We can help you our there, and we advise that you take a look at our Site Questionnaire so that you can gather as much information as you can before applying for any permits. The more you know, the easier the process will become.
Do you have the skill to follow the plans and build your house so that it will be safe and durable? Acquiring the talents to erect a structure might not be the greatest mental feat, but it does take patience and focus. Do you have the time to dedicate to learning the individual disciplines necessary? If you don't, you'll need to find someone else to do the work, which presents a new set of challenges. Most communities have restrictions on who you can hire to do work for you, so you'll have to make sure you're following the law in regards to employing licensed help.
Do you have the time to build the home? If you don't, then again, you'll have to look into hiring. You'll also have to make sure that you stay on top of the project so that it stays on track. The last thing you'll want is for the schedule to slip and your labor costs to start increasing when they don't have to.
If you have these bases covered, then you're set to build your tiny home and enjoy the perks that come with it. The aesthetics, for instance, can't be overlooked. Our designs, based on the American Victorian period, evoke a sense of charm and high style that is inimitable. A tiny house costs less to build, particularly when you go with one of our plans and do the job yourself. Then there are the long-term savings. By living a simpler life and having a smaller ecological footprint, you spend less and use less energy. Over time, the money you would have used funding a more elaborate lifestyle goes right into your savings, free for you to use as you see fit.
It's no shock that tiny homes make great rental units if you're the entrepreneurial type. They are also a prime option for retirement or vacation homes, which by their very nature should be simple and affordable. You might be surprised to learn, though, that they are also becoming a popular option for primary residences. In the places where they are legal, many people are learning that they can do more with less, and have adopted the minimalist life to achieve greater financial freedom and reduced stress. There are plenty of arguments to be made for small homes, and plenty of primers out there if you're looking to learn more about stripping down to the essentials.
To facilitate such a transition, we've designed our homes to last, and conform to many of the standards in place across the country regulating the construction of smaller homes.
