me, when it comes to small house designs, it’s all about planning
ahead. Simplicity is always great, but it’s even better when there’s
more thought and energy put into a tiny houses’ design. That’s why I

directions you can go when constructing a home. There are a lot of
gorgeous designs out there whether they are modern, contemporary,
simple, rustic or just tiny.

pick up some tiny house books. There are lots of creative ideas in them

to make sure that your design fits everyone’s needs. This is really
important. You can’t be satisfied with your house if it doesn’t meet
Here are some good questions to think about...
