Tiny House Plans for Canadians

Explore the charm of tiny living with TIMBER MART’s collection of tiny house plans. Whether it’s as a low-cost first house, a second home used for weekend getaways, or an additional home on existing property for seniors to be close to their family, our array of tiny home plans has something for everyone. Tiny homes – houses that are around or under 1,000 square feet – have become a popular way for Canadians to build simpler, more affordable and more sustainable ways of living. Tiny Homes are an exciting new way to solve the problems of housing. Because bigger isn’t always better!

Why Choose a Tiny Home?

Tiny homes are all about living more efficiently, affordably and reducing environmental impact. But don’t let the small size fool you, even with spaces often under 1000 square feet, a great design can help you make the most of every inch. These are still homes in every sense of the word, providing the essentials, without wasting any space. And like building any home, having a great plan in advance is key.

How to Start Planning for a Tiny Home

Starting a tiny house project can be both exciting and challenging. There’s lots of questions that pop up – how much will it cost? What sort of design am I looking for? Can it be DIY? Here’s a couple of pointers that will help you along the way:

  • Who/What/When? Before you pick a tiny house plan, you need to consider the main use. Who is primarily going to use it? Your in-laws? Your kids? And how and when are they using it? Is it going to be used by various guests in the summer? Or is it for full time use by retirees? Thinking of how the house will get used can clarify what sort of tiny home plan you want to start with.
  • Get Inspired. Look at different tiny house plans to get inspired. Think about not only what design looks good on its own, but which will fit in with the surroundings – neighboring houses and structures as well as trees and landscape.
  • Budget Wisely. Spend time carefully crafting a budget. A tiny home is going to be much more affordable than a traditional-sized one, but it is still a house, and needs to be built up to all the same construction codes as any other structure. If you’re finding a contractor, make sure to budget for their fee as well. And always remember that permits can have costs, and can take time to process, so start that the permitting process early!
