Choosing Your Tiny House Floor Plan (1/5)

Choosing Your Tiny House Floor Plan (1/5)


Hi everybody! It’s Heath and in this video I
want to talk to you a little bit about how to select the right floor plan for your tiny house or at least give you some insight into my thinking as I was
deciding what floor plan of the tiny house was going to be right for me. Of
course when I was thinking about the floor plan for my tiny house I wasn’t
starting from an absolute blank slate because I began my tiny house from a
barn raiser that I got from the Tumbleweed Tiny House company. I know
that a lot of people are starting their bills just from the straight trailer in
C you have a lot of flexibility and exactly how you want the house but I
still think that a lot of the principles that I was thinking about when I was
selecting one of the floor plans it’s available from tumbleweed will probably
apply to you it particularly when you’re thinking about use of space how you’re
going to be using the space and and that was very important to me thinking about
what I was going to be doing in the house how I was going to be using space
and then making sure that I had the right floor plan for that so basically
what I’m going to be looking at here are some of the floor plans that are
available on the tumbleweed tiny house company website and then I’m going to be
thinking or talking to you about what I was thinking as I was looking at each
one so as you can see down here this is my tiny house had been working on it I
believe this picture is taken just when I completed all of that shingle siding
it is a 24 foot long Cyprus moment I’m selected the Cyprus early on actually I
really like the look of it I think it’s got a fantastic look and so that’s the
one that I decided that I wanted and so there are different models if you’re
thinking about getting one from tumbleweed alright let’s go ahead and
take a look at some of the floor plans they have for this and of course they
also have different sizes mines a 24 foot long as it’s one of the larger ones
ok so let’s get started here this is the front of my Cyprus I’ve started to
finish it out here you can see that I’ve started to bring the windows and the
trim and and so forth that’s kind of how it’s looking right
here and that’s one of the reasons that I really like the Cyprus models because
this got this bump out here with that kind of the baby Windows Word of luck
and so I’m gonna be using a lot of that space for that space a lot actually as a
writing area so I think that’s one of the reasons that I got the Cyprus
because I thought this was such a great part of the house so what we’re seeing
here is that this is for the twenty-four foot long Cyprus model and then type
tumbleweed has a variety of different names so that the model of the houses
cypress and then this is the horizon floor plan so you can see need plans
over here and the layout of what the house would look like if you chose the
horizon and so this one says it sleeps 3 over here this is not a floor plan that
I considered a whole lot but let’s take a look at some of its advantages and
disadvantages one of the things that I noticed when I was looking at this is
what they call the great room right here and it’s comparatively smaller of course
you have the bump out here some people in general by the way when they look at
the cypress and they say well that’s got this porch right here and of course this
porch does take a little bit of your floor space on your trailer because the
porches up on the trailer to small porch other Layouts actually have a larger
portion it but I know that some people want to get rid of this porch if you get
rid of the ports though you do lose the bump outlook over here but then also it
seems like it is really nice to be able to step up onto this and then the end of
the weather while you open the door and sort of have the transition area now the
coverage transition area before you move into your time now so I really liked it
I think it does something to the house but then once you walk into the house
you get into the great room here which is smaller because you bet the kitchen
here and then the bathroom and then a bedroom back here in the back and of
course it sleeps 3 because it’s got this downstairs bedroom I don’t need to sleep
in my tiny house it is just me so whenever I saw downstairs bedroom I was
always thinking office I think this would be a great layout if you really
want to do a lot of cooking if you will be doing a lot of cooking and also
perhaps collaborating with somebody who is going to be in here in the great room you know if you could be in here in the
kitchen working and I think you’d be facing in this direction a lot kind of setup to face in this
direction and so if somebody else’s sitting over here or something like that
it seems like a great way to collaborate with somebody who’s over here in the
great room in the kitchen maybe if you have a child and their bedroom is back
here then this would be a really good good lay out the closet here that large
closet that’s built and you can see though that the doors here it says now
parts I guess there are other options but it’s going to be difficult to put a
sliding door is going to be impossible I suppose to put a sliding door into this
closet here and the doors are going to open up you know opening up this closet
you have to walk here and then open up that door and then step over here and
open up that door but it would give you a rather large closet area and that may
be what you’re looking for of course the bathroom you step in your
toilets right here and then this thing in the shower over here and of course
sleeping loft the sleeping loft on all these layout is rather standard I felt
like this layout used up a whole lot of room that in a way that I wasn’t going
to use it particularly with regard to this hallway ok so this space right here
when you look at it ok what do you do with this space will
it’s not really livable space so maybe use this is a bedroom back here or maybe
use it as an office but this space right here is just hallway and I kind of felt
that way about this space as well so here’s the kitchen space I guess you
slide the latter over here so if you’re working in the kitchen you’re standing
here a lot and then this is kind of transition space but this is really
transitions base and then you head out into the great room and so I was
thinking well with the way that I’m going to be using the house I didn’t
think that I needed this kitchen orientation and I also wanted a little
bit better use of this space this wasn’t one that I looked at quite a bit but it
could be one day that might fit your lifestyle perfectly
so let’s let’s go ahead and take a look at the next one
