The Cider Box Tiny House

The Cider Box Tiny House design has two separate sleeping lofts (one accessed by stairs), a full kitchen with bar seating, and space for laundry machines. Plentiful windows added to the non-traditional roof design let in light, along with skylights and glass French doors. The PDF

Plans include two separate plan sets:

  • A 20 foot long design that is 148 square feet on the main floor with a 65 square foot main loft and 30 square foot small loft.
  • A 24 foot long design that is 179 square feet on the main floor with an 84 square foot and a 30 square foot loft.

The Cider Box Editable 3-D Model by Tiny Nest

Our friend Jake at the Tiny Nest Project got to be an absolute whiz with SketchUp while building his tiny house with his partner Kiva. He has created an editable SketchUp Model version of the 24’ Foot Cider Box Tiny House design, now available on PAD Tiny Houses.com as an add-on to the PDF plans. Watch the video below to have Jake take you on a virtual tour of the Cider Box, and learn how powerful a 3-D model can be!

The video demonstrates how helpful the model is for even novice users. With SketchUp experience or with Tiny Nest’s SketchUp Tutorial as your companion, you can:

  • Change finish types and colors to see the same design with totally different aesthetics
  • Move, test and alter interior layouts to plan what works for you
  • Add real appliances and home decor from external product libraries to see how they fit
  • Hide layers of construction material to see the house framing in 3-D like a virtual “test build”
  • Alter the framing itself to move windows, doors, or even alter the length of the house

Using SketchUp 3-D Modeling

SketchUp is totally free to use, but if you’re new to it, I recommend Jake’s Tiny Nest SketchUp Tutorial. For just $30, this tutorial teaches you how to use the product just like he does. It acts as a user’s manual for the Cider Box model, Jake’s free 3-D models of all of Iron Eagle’s Tiny House Trailers, and the model of his own tiny house design.

All SketchUp files and file-creators are not created equal, and people use the program really differently. I love Jake’s tutorial because he’s super organized, a great communicator, and his SketchUp training is specific to tiny houses on wheels.
