Here's a lil' list of FOUR free sets of tiny house, cabin, and/or shed plans- ones that I feel are pretty decent- well, ESPECIALLY considering the price! If anyone has any other links to free plans, let me know, or comment below, as I'd like to start a running archive of free plans (something I'd like to offer and develop down the road myself). That said, check some of these out....
1. Lester Walker's "Living Cube"- This cabin, one of my favorite's since I was a kid, is also pretty fully hashed out in Walker's book "Tiny, Tiny Houses"- a book you've probably seen and heard me post/talk about many times- it was THE BOOK that got me addicted to tiny housing, when I received it for my tenth birthday. I linked it, and a few other very noteworthy tiny books here....
Lester's Plans from a 1972 Magazine (Popular Science)- http://books.google.ca/books?id=BQEMDqBjzHwC&lpg=PA84&ots=SmdiU1bwKB&dq=Cube%20House%20Lester%20Walker&pg=PA86#v=onepage&q=Cube%20House%20Lester%20Walker&f=true
2. POPULAR SCIENCE DOME HOME- I just LOVE the old art, and layout of the Popular Science, Family Handyman, and Family Circle plan sets of old. This one is a great example, and while I'm not overly enamored with dome homes myself, there's no denying that this is a cool little idea for a home, and that domes still do have their followers and fans. This one buds for you!
3. Michael Janzen's Free Pre-fabbin' Cabin (We also have a link to some other REALLY cool cabin plan sets from Michael down in the lower RIGHT HAND column of this blog). Here's a really cool free set though...easy to build, and good lookin'.

4. Jamaica Cottage Shop's Free Shed Plans- EASILY convertible into a tiny vacation cabin/cottage or even a cool shed office or fort! I LOVE some of the designs from Vermont's "Jamaica Cottage Shop"- one of my favorite's being "The Writer's Haven"- so be sure to check out the rest of their offerings! You have to join their mailing list to get the plans, but the stuff that occasionally comes across in their email offerings is all really cool tiny house and shed related material. At least check out some of their models at www.JamaicaCottageShop.com

5. Michael Janzen's TINY FREE PALLET HOUSE- pretty self explanatory....Pallets are EVERYWHERE, so why not put them to use?
Again, if you know of more FREE plans for cabins, sheds, of tiny houses, post them in the comments section below and I'll eventually archive them in a running list for all to see/enjoy.
