Good news! Because of reader interest, I've designed a collection of floor plans, each one different, yet, each one inspired by our little house, with key changes made to make the space and livability even better. I'm calling them the Shelter Collection. These are full-set plans for permanent, foundation-built homes. Four floor plans, ranging in size from 1100 - 1400 sq ft, are available as PDF downloads, with your choice of study plans so you can dream, or building plans so you can build. Read more about the Shelter Collection here. The plans are available here!
