Thanks Susanne. I'm building in my backyard, but not sure where it will end up after that.

That's great, what town are you building in?

Thanks so much Roberta (and sorry for not replying sooner--still getting used to the comments system!)
I've started to see the shed roof being used more often on tiny houses now, but it can be tough to get it to look good on the exterior because it does make the the structure appear taller than it would with a gable roof. Having large windows helps with that.
Thanks for following!

Absolutely love the design of your tiny home. The shed roof design should be used more in tiny home construction and did a great job! Looking forward to more updates on your house.

Hey Doug, thanks for the comment. The thing with tiny houses on trailers is that they can't exceed 8.5' wide and still be easily transportable, at least without a wide load permit. I've thought about doing a wide load, but this entire design is really inspired by and based around that 8.5' limitation. And the length (26') is already quite large for a tiny house.

Without missing the point of the "tiny house concept". I think you should add a little bit more square footage to each area. It will still be tiny but I think once it is built with actual walls you may have regrets and want to upgrade to a bigger tiny house.
