How do I know what size vehicle I need to tow a tiny house?

Have you already done the calculation of reducing the published tow rating by 20%?  Using that rule, the alleged safe towing capacity margin for a tiny house is the vehicle’s tow capacity x 0.8. There are a lot of resources out there that address this topic – here is one example:

Why should I buy from you?

Because we’re awesome! Just kidding. In all seriousness, though, our team is made up of people that truly embody the tiny house lifestyle and “get” what it’s like to make the transition into it. We curate our designers and plans to reflect thriving examples of tiny house living. That's largely why we are the #1 provider of ready-to-build tiny house plans on the web. Plus, you’ll find at least a 5% discount on ANY of our plans than what you’ll find anywhere else on the web!

How do you treat your customers?

What's your return policy?

There is a no-return policy on all our plans but we are more than happy to help you with your questions ahead of time. We want you to be truly happy with your decision and will help get you there. You may read our full Terms and Conditions HERE.

Can these plans be permitted?

In order to use any plans purchased through us, you agree to retain and consult with a local engineer and/or architect to ensure that all structural elements meet the local codes and requirements and to confirm that local conditions are addressed. You also must agree to the Terms and conditions listed on our website.

Are the printed plans colored?

No, the plans are printed in black and white. There is no option for colored printing available right now but we'll definitely consider it!

Can I modify the plans to better suit my needs?

Yes, you are free to modify the plans as needed but structural integrity must be addressed with each modification. We highly recommend hiring a local architect and engineer to make any changes to your plans. All changes are the sole responsibility of the buyer, not Tiny House Plans or our designers.

How many times / how many tiny homes may I build from your plans?

All of our tiny house plans come with a single license to build. If you would like to build more than one unit, please contact We are happy to establish a multi-use license with you.

Will the building department give me permission to build my tiny house with these plans?

Because regulations vary not only state to state but also county to county and city to city, we truly have no way of saying what your local building department will say. It’s up to you to do your due diligence if you are following a legal pathway. That said, having a set of professional plans will certainly benefit you if you go through an application process.

I can't decide whether to buy the digital or the printed plans.

Getting plans printed up is simple and economical. When you buy a set of our digital plans you can email them to a local print shop and ask them to print them onto Architectural D paper. Nearly all of our plans are formatted to print on that size. It will save you quite a bit of time and money compared to printing them locally.

How many download attempts do I have after purchasing my plans?

You’ll have 5 download attempts which will expire 30 days after the purchase date. If you don’t manage to download them within 30 days, not to worry, simply go to this page and provide your email address for an automatic re-issue of your download email. Easy peasy!

How secure is your ordering process?

Our shopping cart system meets and exceeds the PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).  We have achieved PCI DSS compliance by addressing and fulfilling all the requirements laid out in the SAQ-D by the PCI Security Standards Council.  Our team promises to consistently improve our security efforts and be continually vigilant in protecting all types of sensitive financial data.
