hOMe, a modern tiny house on wheels, offers tiny house living without compromise. With everything from a full sized kitchen with conventionally sized appliances, a comfortable set of stairs to the master bedroom, copious amounts of storage throughout, space for a home office for two, storage that works double duty as furniture, and ample head room in the lofts, to a functional bathroom with room for a conventionally sized sink, shower and toilet, hOMe is a comfortable residence suited for full time living.

The layout of this 207SF (+110SF in lofts) tiny house is open and spacious with tall ceilings while keeping within legal road restrictions (8’6″wide x 13’5″ tall) so that a special transport permit is not required to move it. hOMe’s architectural plans are build-ready, and have been engineered and professionally drawn. These plans have been painstakingly edited by seasoned professionals in three fields, ensuring that they are accurate, safe, and follow best construction standards. The hOMe building system was designed with the novice builder in mind by marrying basic building techniques with innovative engineering.
What does hOMe Cost To Build?

The cost of materials to build hOMe in our region (southern Oregon) was $22,744.06 not including cabinetry, composting toilet, fixtures, appliances and furniture.

About Us
A&GWe are a husband/wife team that decided to leave the rat race behind by changing how we live on this planet. Focused on priorities like family, relationships, peace of mind, and living within our means, we challenged ourselves to create a tiny house plan that would meet all of our needs and suffer no compromises. The result manifested into “hOMe”, our modern, tiny house on wheels. It took us 4 months to build and cost $22,000 ($33,000 if we include the high end appliances, cabinetry, furniture, and fixtures). We are now debt free, off grid, joyful, closer as a family, and enjoying living our lives full time in hOMe.

Andrew specializes in teaching people with no previous construction experience by explaining each step in an easy to follow format.
