Tugaloo Cabin


SKU: 17099 Categories: ,

This beautiful two-level house would make a great weekend getaway or family home. The footprint is 36'x25', plus a 12’ covered entry deck and a generous 6’ deep side porch along the width of the house. That means this house can easily fit on even a smallish lot. But even with this compact footprint, you get just under 1600 square feet of comfortable heated space.

The layout is especially flexible because of the bedroom and bathroom on the main level. They would make a nice master suite, or a ground level, universal-design guest or in-law suite. Upstairs there is another good sized master suite and two additional bedrooms for the family.

  • 456 square feet of covered patios with hammer beam trusses on the side porch and exposed rafters on the entry porch.
  • This hybrid timber frame home has heavy timbers in the entertaining areas, and conserves money by using conventional construction in the sleeping quarters and bathrooms!
  • The living and dining areas are open to the porches and the efficient U-shaped kitchen, making this home conducive to family time or entertaining!
  •  The main level features and expanded stairwell and focal point fireplace.
  • The ground floor level also features a laundry closet and mud room convenient to the side entry.
  • The second floor's oversized dormer gives the house plenty of curb appeal, and creates comfortable space on the second floor.
  • Heated Square Feet 1,576 sqft
  • Covered/Uncovered Decks 456 sqft
  • Total 2,032 sqft

You get 15 instantly-downloadable pages in a multi-sheet PDF that print up at full blueprint size at 24"x36". This plan will get you to the finish line.

This plan is also included in the Master Plan Bundle and the Timber Frame Home Plan Bundle 2.

Are your plans engineered?

The plans we offer on our website are not stamped by an engineer. People build our frames all over the country, and in each location, there are different requirements.  Timber species, design loads and values needed are just some of the factors engineers need to take into account in each case.  

We do offer engineering services as an add-on to our standard plans.
