Fine Carpentry – Inventive Built-in Sofa Bed

A very unique custom piece was this built-in sofa.  Leland Duck of Revive Upholstery  (another business in the Beam & Anchor building) did the upholstery.  It also takes advantage of the depth allowed from the pitch of the roof.” – Phloem Studio

Alex and Allison – Unlikely Lives

Alex and Allison weren’t concerned with the size of their house, but they wanted their home to provide easy access to the people and activities that make their lives feel full and meaningful. A tiny home was just the path that got them there. They bought a nearly vacant lot in the colorful, small town of Yellow Springs, Ohio and applied to build a main house and a fully legal, 320 foot, accessory dwelling. Once approved, they simply built the “accessory” first, and have lived there for over a year and a half.” – Billy Ulmer at Unlikely Lives

New 8′ x 20′ Shipping Container Home Design

When I set out to design my first shipping container home, my goal was to keep it simple and affordable.  The resulting design is not fancy, but it has pretty much everything one person needs.  In my view, this is too small for two people for an extended period of time, but one person could be comfortable here.  It could be a great vacation home, guest house, or place for an adult child who has returned home after college, as many are doing these days.” – Jay Creighton

8×40 Shipping Container Home Design

I’ve designed and drawn-up my first 8′ x 40′ steel shipping container home plans.  It’s a 320 sq. ft. tiny home design.  While it is specifically designed for a shipping container, there is no reason it couldn’t be a stick-built tiny home planas well.  In fact, if you did that you could put on a gable, gambrel, or shed roof to get some extra storage or sleeping loft space too.” – Jay Creighton
