Build Your Own Micro Coach House

Micro Coach House

The “Micro Coach House” is alternative stealth housing designed by William Edward Summers for easybuildingplans.com to meet the need for ultra-#affordablehousing .

The cost of construction is in very low with a design that allows it to slip without a ripple into most types of neighborhoods.
The low cost component of the concept lets a person with a credit card finance the complete construction without needing to get a mortgage. Since the building is so simple it can be easily permitted as a single car garage or storage building without an inspector realizing that it is actually a dwelling.

With the “Micro Coach House” it is difficult to see that you are looking at a residence from the curb view. The stealth nature of the design makes the concept ideal for a survival retreat that can be hidden in plain sight. It would be easy to drive by it every day and not see it as a dwelling.

Although the actual living area is less than 200 square feet total it has a full bath and kitchenette on the first floor tucked in an alcove behind the single car parking section. The attic sleeping loft is accessed by pull-down stairs and has about 106 square feet of legal standing height room with more usable space under the sloping rafters. The building footprint is only 14′ x 26′ with a height of 16′ at the ridge.

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
