The Hogues got the floor plan online, and made too many trips to count to the hardware store buying supplies. With the help of the family, the couple was able to build the home themselves at a price tag around $10,000.” – News9.com – Oklahoma City, OK
The Albion is one of my favorite recent designs, after the Westport. I started trying to draw a tiny house with two gable dormers, but I quickly realized that the roof was so small they just wouldn’t fit. So I tried a cross gable instead, figuring it was the next best thing and should work just fine. I was surprised how well it worked – aesthetically speaking.
Two functional benefits come from a roof like this too. The first is that more light & air can make its way to the loft. The loft can be also accessed via a ladder (or stairs theoretically) from not just the center of the loft as long as the intersection of the gables is near the edge of the loft. The added headroom makes this possible.

Pictured here are some photo realistic renderings of the Westport – formerly known as the Coast Cottage. It’s a 28-foot tiny house design that features two rooms separated by a bathroom & kitchen. Above the kitchen & bath is a sleeping loft. Off the back room is a french door. In these illustrations I show that back room used as a dining room but you can configure this house to meet your needs. To learn more visit Tiny House Design and preview all my designs.
