Affordable to build and full of natural light, the Whidbey house plan is the newest offering by Tumbleweed Tiny House Company. You have the choice of having one (461 square feet) or two (557 square feet) bedrooms in this single story small house.
Surprisingly, both options have a very large loft space at 6’8″ tall over much of the space. Accessible by a drop down stair ladder the square footage of the loft is not included in the total square footage as the sloped ceiling “doesn’t officially qualify as a habitable room.”
Sidenote: If you’d like to discover more reasons why to start living in a smaller house, then pick up a copy of The Small House Book. Or if you are ready to build something check out the Tumbleweed DIY Book of Backyard Sheds and Tiny Houses.
The Whidbey is designed as a single story house with the choice of 1 or 2 downstairs bedrooms. Its simple design makes the house affordable to build, and full of light. The bedrooms have ample closet space, and the house makes use of its pitched roof for additional storage space or whatever else you choose to use it for. I do not list the upstairs square footage because, with so much sloped ceiling, it does not officially qualify as a habitable room. The house is 17′ 6″ tall.
A dishwasher, full size range with oven, and built in microwave are included in the kitchen. The one bedroom house features a washer/dryer closet just off of the kitchen. The two bedroom house has an under counter washer/dryer in the kitchen. Air conditioning can be added to the home.
As with all Tumbleweed Tiny House’s the construction plans are what you purchase for the house of your choice. These are designed to be built on site and it’s recommended you talk to a licensed contractor to construct the house.
