Are you thinking of building a tiny house, or just in love with the idea and the design? Here are some of my favorite resources, manufacturers, and newsletters. These sites often have free downloadable plans, tutorial videos, and links to other resources such as deconstruction salvage services and compact furnishings.
All of these have a wide assortment of resources, newsletters, articles, links to workshops, vendor directories, tiny house plans and tiny house furnishings and appliances.
