Small House Kits
Inexpensively add a beautiful and useful addition to your backyard with our small house kits created specifically for the amateur, DIY builder. Each unit comes in a number of different architectural styles, one of which should be compatible with the look of your existing home. Our fully featured small houses, which are intended to function as independent units, feature living, sleeping, dining, and bathing areas. Each design is compact in size and height so it can easily fit into most backyards, but is still large enough to be used as a rental apartment, retirement home, or guest house when placed on its own lot.
With material construction costs starting at just $34,000, our Small House kits and Cabin kits can save you thousands of dollars over contractor costs and greatly increases the value of your property. Designed to exceed the strict California Energy Code, our small houses come with high efficiency heat pump systems for space heating and cooling and instantaneous tankless water heaters. Combined with “cool roof” technology, super insulation packages, radiant roof barriers, and state-of-the-art sealing techniques, our small houses rank alongside the most energy efficient buildings in the country.
Our 440 square foot Victorian Tiny House design, which can serve as a guest house, features a living room, bedroom, full bath, and dining area designed around a central courtyard. It has a kitchen equipped with an upright refrigerator, range, cabinets, and dishwasher. And with special features such as sloped wood beams, wood decked ceilings, French doors, high vaulted ceilings, and Victorian finished trim, it makes the space feel far larger and more sophisticated than its dimensions would make it seem.
For those caring for an aging family member or for retirees wanting a place of their own that they can comfortably and economically live in, the 440 square foot Accessible Tiny House is ideal. The floor plan includes a workable kitchen with gas cook-top, range hood, and a refrigerator, as well as a full bath with a large shower, toilet, and vanity. The unit has a 12 foot lofted, beamed ceiling and is built around an exterior patio that is accessible through large French doors.
Our kits include everything from lumber to cabinets, air-conditioning to floor tile, as well as pricing and permitting information. Plan sets, which start at $499 and are super energy efficient, sustainable, and meet most of the 50 State building codes, have all you need to layout, purchase, and build a small house. Whether you build it yourself or hire out the labor, our packages offer substantial savings.
