As part of the catalog of inexpensive housing we are donating free plans for very inexpensive basic housing that you can build if you have access to some land. The a-frame plan might be suitable for someone that has to wait many months before returning to normal housing. Please request the catalog of cabins, cottages, garages and shops. These could later serve as vacation cabins or as an emergency retreat in the future.

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
