Build Your Own Home on a Trailer...
With the Lusby Tiny House Plans
I made this page because the Lusby tiny house plans are one of my favorite... And I don't think I'm alone when I say that.
This is a 117 square foot home on wheels by Tumbleweed Houses. Here's what it looks like being towed...
It weighs about 5400 pounds so you will need a heavy duty vehicle to tow it. Look at how tall it is!
It must be pretty interesting to see one of these for the first time just driving down the road... Haha.
If you're wondering, the exterior finish is made out of Cedar.
The roof on this one seems to be aluminum, but there are other options for that too.
Next I have a picture of the view from the inside, looking at the front door.
When you come in through that door, on the left and right are two decent sized closets.
Definitely enough room in there for some stuff and as much clothes as you would need. I think this model could easily suit two people who really enjoy each other. :)
You can also start to notice just how many shelves are built in to the design. There's enough shelf space for books, plates and other everyday items. The photo also gives you an idea of what the kitchen and dining is like.
In this next photo you can see the rest of the tiny kitchen...
Plus the ladder that leads you to the upstairs loft bedroom. Up there the height is only 3'8", so it's pretty much for sleeping and reading.
...And whatever else you can manage.
Notice how to the right of the ladder there's a sneak-peak at a downstairs bedroom.
The Lusby is special because it has this extra bedroom downstairs in addition to the normal loft sleeping area.
Plus if you don't need the extra bed, you can turn this into an office, storage, meditation or anything else that you can think of.
As I look at these pictures I can't help but continue thinking how worth it it must be to go with the pine wall finish versus the usual drywall that we use today.
This is obviously more expensive than drywall, but since the home is so small, I'd definitely splurge on this if I was able to.
Anyways, let's climb up to the view from the bedroom loft...
From up here you can see the over the entrance storage area.
If you don't have stuff to store up there, it's a great spot to place some decorations.
A great idea is to place some luggage or pretty boxes up there to use as decoration as well as hidden storage.
It's a great spot to tuck away seasonal items and other things that you want to keep but don't use everyday.
Now that you know what it looks like, let's take a look at the floor plan and all of the room dimensions over here...
I've learned that all of these dimensions are approximate. Meaning they can be altered to fit your specific needs. A good example would be if you would rather sacrifice your loft height for more ceiling height in the main area (if you're tall).
Purchasing the plans

Here's a nice list I put together for most of the other Tumbleweed house designs that are available.

Building one of these houses can be fun... but it's not easy! Learning to build your own, getting the building plans and more. Also read about others who've already done it. Pictures and videos too.
