A Little Bit Bigger

Small house living doesn’t necessarily entail living in a house the size of a Ford Ranger. In fact, I don’t think most lives would fit into a single parking space. In its original and I believe its  truest form, the Small House Movement was created not so much as a showcase for living, “… tinier than thou, but rather people making their own choices toward simpler and smaller living however they feel best fits their life”. –Greg Johnson, co-founder and president of the Small House Society, 2002.

The Marmara is considerably larger than my tiniest houses. At 262 square feet downstairs and an additional 250 square feet for proposed loft space, it’s nearly three times the size.

Among other features, the Marmara allows for the finished design to contain a full-sized bed downstairs, along with a kitchen, a 30" x 78" bathroom, a 9' 6" x 10' great room and more than 70 square feet of storage. There are two sleeping/storage lofts to accommodate four guests comfortably and/or a lot of surplus storage. The little gas fireplace is by Jotul.

A Special Bonus 

The Furnished House Plan includes a full set of component furnishing plans. You'll have access to the blueprints for building all of the DIY furnishings and room components that fit into this beautiful house, as shown in the floor plan (see slideshow above). 


"We have been looking at plans for nine months.  When we saw the Marmara, we both fell instantly in love!" — Jeremy Hinkle

* 14'-8" height is based on 32" standard deck-over-trailer height. The Marmara on wheels is designed as a park model RV, not as a travel trailer.  It is a wide-load, over-height model, which requires a commercial driver's license to legally tow it on U.S streets, as park model RVs often do.

** The Marmara was designed to meet park model RV codes, not to meet the minimum size standards of the ICC building code.  If your foundation-built construction plans rely upon building permits, please ask your local building officials whether this model can be permitted at your site.
