Tiny House Resources

Welcome to my tiny house resources page! These are books, information resources, and plans that I recommend for building your tiny house.

Jump to a section:


Go House Go by Dee Williams is an excellent resource for constructing your house: Particularly for learning about attaching the house to your trailer properly! I bought this book and referred to it frequently during construction
The Humanure Handbook by Joseph C. Jenkins is the book to read if you're considering installing a composting toilet in your tiny house. It explains everything you need to know about composting human manure.
The Tiny House Design and Construction Guide by Dan Louche takes you step by step through each phase of the construction process. Another book that I bought, printed out, and kept at the job site!
Tiny House Parking is my latest book, and it was written to help you answer the question: How do I find a place to put my tiny house?
Cracking The Code is an excellent resource put together by Ryan Mitchell. In it, he describes a really well thought out process for working with your local zoning and planning office to ensure that your tiny house does not set off any red flags. A great resource!
My flagship resource! Tiny House Decisions answers all your questions, from “is a tiny house right for me?” to design, building, and even moving in. Over 500 tiny house dwellers have purchased Tiny House Decisions and they can't say enough great things about it!
Another wonderful resource by Ryan Mitchell, this is the book I wish I had when we did the electric in the tiny house. Check out Shockingly Simple Electrical when you wire your tiny house!

Tiny House Plans


Minimotives is the incredible 5th wheel tiny house designed and built by Macy Miller. Macy is a design professional and a staunch tiny house advocate. Her plans are an excellent choice!

Tiny Project

The Tiny Project house by Alek Lisefski is considered a modern tiny house. This design features amazing light and a spacious sleeping loft. This is definitely one of my recent favorites!

Sol Haus

The Sol Haus by Vina Lustado is an amazing passive solar tiny house on wheels. Vina's experience building her own house, attention to detail, and professionalism are apparent. This is a gorgeous house!

TinyHousePlans.com is an exciting collaboration between TinyHouseBuild and several prominent tiny house designers. It's a one-stop shop where you can compare and purchase plans for your dream tiny house.

Tiny Tack House

The Tiny Tack House was designed by Malissa and Chris Tack. Their design was one of the biggest influences on my own tiny house design. Malissa is a 3D artist by profession, so these plans are full of amazing detail!

Tiny hOMe

Tiny hOMe is a beautiful, modern tiny home that has a ton of interior space, including two separate lofts! I really love this design and think you will too.
