MICRO APARTMENT BUILDING PLANS by William Edward Summers Creative Projects

(Scroll down for more plans)

I am finishing up, and ready to offer the design for two building concepts, a mini and micro apartment building. The mini building is initially  in modules of eight units which is four per floor. The micro apartment building has five units per floor for ten per building. Building foot prints are 28 x 65 (micro) or 30 x 63 (mini). Plans will be ready to use for permit application and construction. There is flexibility with the concept because I can provide several different apartment floor plan configurations, and assemble the buildings using any of the plans. We can also do single family micro houses with these floor plans.

Micro floor planapartmments4-Model

Micro living is not for everyone, but it does offer some interesting options. For example the square footage of a modest single family house is the equivalent of my eight unit apartment building. What a great choice for a pied-a-terre or living in the centers of expensive luxury cities like new York City, San Francisco, Paris or Tokyo. Developers will also like the option of being able to sell micro condominiums.

Garden Cottage

In some cities growth in the housing stock is encouraged by allowing the construction of small secondary houses on single family lots behind the main house. In Vancouver ,B.C. these houses are called lane houses, in Victoria B.C. they are called garden apartments. In the United States they are often referred to as “tiny houses”. This house, the Garden Cottage, is designed to meet the requirements for this type of housing in these two cities specifically. This plan is a one bedroom five hundred square foot cottage with a Tudor, English cottage inspired style. Available as PDF files, ready for building permit application and construction. The plans are $250.00

Mini Coach House

The Mini Coach House

The loft was a fantastic live/work space for real artists back when they were very inexpensive. Today lofts are ideal for movie stars, lawyers and high tech moguls, but far too expensive for most artists. Another trend is the desire of many creative people to get closer to the natural world.
The “Mini Coach House” designed by William Edward Summers is a tiny house and artists work space rolled into one. It is very inexpensive to build, probably less than a nice new car, and offers tremendous flexibility. This versatile live/work option s the perfect cottage for that lot in Maine, Canada, or Northern California.

A full set of plans, designed to basic international building code standards, is available for $150.00 U.S. dollars.  Slight modifications will be required for heavy snow loads, also engineering may be required by local codes.
