Most of Jay Shafer’s designs have the steep 12 x 12 roof pitch and he tends to stay with the more classic look with a porch, etc.
Jay Shafer however has one design that moves into the modern spectrum. It is called the Z-Glass house. This home is not one that you would put on wheels and transport down the highway. Though the size would allow it with a permit as it is 14 feet x 28 feet. The house has a master bedroom, a living area and a bathroom and kitchen.
This home design has a modern aesthetic look and feel, and it is the most accessible for people who may not be able to climb up into a sleeping loft. The value of one-level living space is perfect for the dramatic aging of our population. As 76 million baby boomers reach older age, many will be looking for homes without stairs.
I also believe that this home could easily double in size by adding a second floor and making space for two more bedrooms above. The house pictured above has rolled hot steel siding, which is really neat. However you could use any type of siding to present the look you like.
Tumbleweed does not construct this home, but you can buy the plans from them at the Tumbleweed Tiny House Company web site. There is a special on this plan for the month of October. Usually $695, the plan is available for $495. So if this is the tiny house you have been looking for now is a great time to get Jay’s Z-Glass house plans, price is good through October 31, 2008.
