The Small House Movement has inspired the creation of many websites offering building plans and designs for small home construction. Below is a brief directory of these resources for building tiny, little, small, miniature, and micro homes. Please contact us if you know of any other resources that should be added to this list.
Some people prefer to design their own home plans beginning with basic floor plans. For this, websites such as FloorPlanner.com are helpful.
In addition to the house plans offered by well known designers and builders of small homes, there are also websites that offer house plans. At present, we’ve not thoroughly reviewed house plan sites, nor have we ordered from them. So, the list here is simply offered to provide what seem to be the most significant house plan sites. Please let us know of any others that should be listed, or if there’s one here you feel shouldn’t be listed. Most of these sites offer the option of searching by size.

- eSmallHousePlans.com – “We create small home plan designs that give families everything they typically look for in a larger home, including all of the modern conveniences, privacy and storage areas, without sacrificing detail. The trend of larger homes is turning now as families want to feel closer and make choices that help lower rising energy costs and impact the environment in a positive manner. We design homes that are 500-1500 sq ft and eco friendly without disrupting the typical family lifestyle. By concentrating on design that fits the family, rather than creating spaces that families have to fit into, there is less wasted space in a home, and less wasted money. Scale and usage are important in a home, and building a small home that works for a family without feeling small, takes a unique designer. We hope you enjoy our small home designs, custom home plan options, and our articles that will help you make the best decision when building and decorating your small house.”
