Tiny Live/Work House

mini c.h.Rendering - -3D-_2

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. This experimental small building bring together the tiny house trend and the maker movement in a new type of living space.

 How to Easily Buy Your Own New Home with Minimum Wage

 The new “Tiny Live/Work House” designed by  William Edward Summers Creative Projects is a project that  empowers an individual or couple to build a new house that costs less than renting an apartment yet provides both an apartment and a multi-purpose workspace . The workspace can be a garage, an art studio, a shop, makerspace, gallery, or even retail space. If desired it can be developed as additional living space for rental or use by the owner..

The “Tiny Live/Work House” is only sixteen feet wide by thirty-three feet long plus a small three foot balcony on the second floor. It is larger than the eight foot wide tiny houses on wheels but much smaller than conventional single family dwellings. The entire building can cost on average about $80,000 to build. With a 6.75% interest rate and 100% financing the monthly payments are less than $600.00. As an example, a couple with  both working full time jobs making only ten dollars an hour would be able to build this house on a lot costing $30,000 and live in it for less than 25% of their combined monthly income.

This pricing makes the “Tiny Live/Work House” ideal for young people just starting out, entrepreneurs who want to own their place of business rather than rent, or homeowners who want to add square footage and workspace to their existing site. If both floors are developed into dwelling space the “Tiny Live/Work House” easily generates positive cash flow if added to an existing site.

 Because of the current economic environment, inexpensive building lots can be easily located throughout North America once the buyer rules out big hyper expensive cities. Small college towns or artsy villages are perfect environments for this house. As part of the project Summers has designed a two step expansion concept that assists the “Tiny Live/ Work House” owner to ultimately expand up to around 2000 square feet.

The “Tiny Live/Work House” designed by William Edward Summers is a tiny house and artist’s work space rolled into one. It is very inexpensive to build, and offers tremendous flexibility. This is the perfect cottage for that lot in Vermont, British Columbia, or Northern California.

The plans include : Four elevations, floor plans, a foundation plan, second floor framing plan, roof framing plan, a section,  connection details, and general specifications. It is designed to IBC codes, but could possibly require additional information or engineering in your local area.

MICRO APARTMENT BUILDING PLANS

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 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.
