The Little House Plans Kit has complete plans for three sturdy long-lasting houses you can build inexpensively by yourself or with the help of a friend, spouse or kids. Each of these houses can be used as a camping cabin, starter house, workshop or home office. Each can be built with a walking roof deck or with a steep pitched roof and a small loft.
The Plans kit includes construction plans for all three houses (10x14, 12x18 and 14x24) and full instructions. You can build all three. The plans include a simple to build post and pier foundation for a permanent little house. This latest version also includes details for an even easier to build skid foundation for a closer to the ground movable cabin, storage shed or playhouse - any building that won't need access to plumbing under the floor.
Each Kit contains:
Bonus #1 - An Inclinometer with surveying charts. Use this historic tool to determine the slope of a hillside and layout the best driveway or trail to your house. Use it to estimate the height of trees and to locate where they might fall. (You don't want to build under storm blown trees!) You can also use it to do simple surveying such as laying out a foundation. Instructions included.
Bonus #2 - A Solar slide rule that shows you how high in the sky the summer and winter sun is for your particular latitude. Use this with the inclinometer and you will know what trees block your winter sun and the ones that give you summer shade. Use this to decide what to cut and where to do new plantings.
Bonus #3 - False Front option for the Little House. This western store front can be added to any of the cabin plans and gives an old in-town feel to a home office, workshop or guest outbuilding. The deck/boardwalk out front can tie back into the big house.
Take the solar slide rule and inclinometer along with you when looking at property. It will let you see what kind of sun the property gets before you buy it.
Update: Many folks have asked for a Little House plan layout for a 16' wide building. At our subscription sister site PlanHelp.com I have uploaded a 16x28 version of the beam and pier foundation and a template file that can be used to redesign the floorplan of this and other Little House projects.
