We worked with Niall Burke of Humble Homes to get an accurate and detailed 3D model and lay out the details of building our tiny house. Niall Burke, is the structural engineer that drafted our building plans so we can get to the next phase of our tiny house journey. Niall and his company Humble Homes was the key element in the completion of our custom home plans.
We edited the 3D model of our house through a period a several months. Some changes were made as a consequence of the advice we received from Niall. He guided us through a number of things, including safety clearances we would need for windows and doors.
He was also very accommodating, even when we decided to change the room layout while he was already drafting up the 3D model.
In the end we were ecstatic to get the final model and plans. It was our first look into our new home!
Below are the final 3D models created by Niall incorporating the ideas for our tiny house.
Our tiny house has a sliding glass door entrance which leads into the great room. This room leads into the kitchen and behind that is a study and bathroom. From the great room we can access the upstairs lofts. The bigger loft will be our bedroom and the smaller one will be for storage and other miscellaneous uses. Another feature we love about our tiny house is the fold down porch. We took the inspiration from Tall Man’s Tiny House. This porch folds up during transportation but when parked, will serve as a porch area with an awning attached. In a tiny house, the little details are the most important and exciting.
We also opted for numerous windows on the south side of the house. This creates an illusion of space. For practical purposes, it utilizes sunlight to our advantage; both for light and heat purposes. The skylights in the great room and the bedroom loft will also facilitate a feeling of spaciousness.
There you have it. A glimpse of our future tiny home.
