The Beavan Tiny House was selected as an "Editor's Choice" winner at MAKE Magazine's New York 2011 Maker Faire.

The most notable distinction this house offers is the oversized, exposed truss above its integral porch. This shameless display of structural integrity, organic materials, and utility are derived from the Bungalow tradition that inspired the home. The more rustic elements of Craftsman style cabins and lodges are particularly evident.  

The Beavan has a standing seam metal roof, cedar board and batten siding, and a tiny integral porch that’s good for staying dry as you perch or fumble for your keys. The interior is all knotty pine. The cathedral ceiling is 9’ 8” tall at the peak. As a shell, it accommodates any of the components listed on the Compact Furnishings page and more.

The bathroom’s interior is 21” W x 53” L; the great room’s 6'-3" x 5'-8"; the kitchen is 6'-3" x 4'-4"; and the sleeping loft’s just 75” W x 76"L x 33” H. Two skylights over the pillows make it feel much bigger. A stainless steel double-burner over a 3' tall cabinet in the kitchen. A Dickinson Marine fireplace keeps the place warm and cozy.    

This house is available as a shell and as a furnished house plan. 

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). 

* The Beavan on wheels measures 13'-4" tall, when built on the 22" high deck of a standard car hauler trailer.
