This is a Sneak-Peek of Plan 731, an off-grid, super efficient, small luxury home that is ideal for arctic, sub-zero temperature climate locations. With its 10″ thick, dual exterior wall system, it will be very easy to maintain warm or cold temperatures inside the home depending on the season and your location.
This small luxury home is ideal for single persons or young couple just getting started or active senior couples wanting to downsize, or looking to build an affordable get-a-way home that is off grid and super energy efficient. The construction plans will be available in our online store in the next couple of weeks.
These are 3 different exterior wall stud options that will soon be available for Plan 630. The current version of the plan in our online store features 2″ X 4″ exterior wall studs, but we’ll also offer a 2″ X 6″ exterior wall studs version, and a double 2″ X 4″ exterior wall studs version. The two new version will have a higher cost to construct than the current version because of the larger footprint, and additional material cost, but your savings on your utility bills or off grid batteries will be significant. With the double wall version below, which will have insulation in each wall section, and drywall in between the two walls, will make it so much easier to heat and cool the home, which can be a real challenge with off grid living.
We can do wider wall versions for any of our plans, just send us an email from the contact tab and let us know what you have in mind.

Texas Tiny Homes – Plan 1058 Pre-production Progress. As I continue the preliminary plan production on this plan, which is being designed for an Austin couple, it’s been a series of adjustments and tweaks to get the roof lines worked out with the wrap around porch. I create 2D renderings before handing the floor plan and final elevations off to one of our skilled draftsman who then build the plan in their 3D architectural software.
Every great home first requires a great set of construction plans. With this plan, I came up with three options for the side elevation. The first image above (Option 3) was the 1st one I did, but decided I wasn’t happy with it for multiple reasons. So I created (Option 1) was done in effort to create two separate roofs something option 3 didn’t have. To achieve the two separate roofs, the front wall height had to be raised up 2′ to provide enough exterior wall height to have two roofs, which would then provide a nice roof line across the front of the home that you are not seeing yet. I left the rear of the home with a 10′ exterior wall in option 1, creating two roof pitches on the main roof. I don’t have a problem with the two different roof pitches but the clients might, so I created option 2 below.
Option 2 features 12′ high walls throughout the home and it provides the same roof pitch on the main part of the home as well as a clean roof line across the front of the home. It will cost a little more to build than option 1 and option 3 due to it being a taller home but the additional expense will mainly be with the additional materials required.
Texas Tiny Homes is currently designing this fun plan for a really nice couple in Austin that features a gym, with a guest suite attached that has connecting bath with client lockers. The Hill Country style home includes a large wrap around porch on half the building. Their backyard home is 1650 square foot under roof and will be constructed on their 1.5 acre lot, behind their main house and next to their pool. The wife operates either a yoga business, or is a physical trainer with lots of clients. The attached suite features a full kitchen and is for out of town clients to book over night visits, as well as their out of town guests. Their new building will also serve as their pool and party house. Let us custom design a plan for you.
