Updated design

Hi everyone! I realized that when I started this blog, our framing plan was not too filled in or useful… but since then, it’s really developed! We’re still using the same floorplan as shown in this post, but there are a few cosmetic changes.

Seriously, I don’t think we could have built this house without having a handy SketchUp model. It’s so useful to refer to for measurements, and it’s a great test platform for fitting pieces together without actually having to build something. Since we’re using steel framing, in my model a yellow piece denotes a “C” and an orange piece denotes track.

This was all done using the totally free version of SketchUp, available here. If you’re interested in learning more about how to make a model like this, I’d highly suggest watching the SketchUp tutorial videos, and Michael Janzen’s youtube series specifically addressing tiny houses.

If you’d like to download this model to play around with it, just search for “Space Coast Tiny House” in the 3D warehouse in SketchUp!
