12×16 Tiny Timber Frame Plan with Loft

12x16 Tiny Timber Frame House Birds Eye View

What could be better than a timber frame tiny house? This 12×16 tiny timber frame house has a small footprint because it utilizes a loft over half the space. Add the ladder of choice to access the loft for sleeping, storage, or whatever you can dream up. The ever-popular lean-to design gives this frame many styles, as do the generous two and three-foot overhangs.

You get almost 9-foot tall ceilings on the 192 square-foot first floor. The 92-square-foot loft takes advantage of the knee wall to give you ceilings ranging from 5 feet to 7 feet tall.  And since the loft only covers half the frame, you get a great ceiling height on the rest of the ground level. The tall face of the structure is free of additional posts, so you can add windows and doors wherever you like.

The support posts and top plates of this 12×16 timber frame tiny house are 8x material for a super sturdy structure. But the rest of the timbers are 4x and 6x material, giving you some great cost savings.  The 284 square feet of this tiny house would make a great backyard guest suite, deluxe playhouse, or inspiring artist’s studio.

The plan set includes axonometric drawings to help you visualize the finished product.  We provide a  3D exploded diagram showing how the pieces of the framework come together. We also include plan and elevation drawings, detailed drawings, and piece drawings showing each cut on every timber. And we provide you with a full timber list, peg count, and a list of structural screws required to complete the frame. There are 27 pages with all the information you need to succeed in this project. The pdfs are instantly downloadable once you make your purchase.  You can easily print these plans from your home on 8 ½” x 11” paper.

  1. How tall is this structure? What would it take to make a larger version of this plan – say 14 x 24?

  2. Hello
    I was wondering what are the sizes of the rafters?(depth, width & length) Also, if I were to build this on concrete piers, what size piers (for 8×8 post) would you recommend based on the fact I live in the northeast and need to go down 4’ for frost line?

  3. What modeling program is this? Revit with Agacad add-in? Is it possible to get the cad files along with the plans?
