The XS-House is the smallest green home design we offer. The "XS" stands for extra small and excessively efficient. It is very light, and easy to tow, and great for 1 person. It is also the most affordable home to build in our catalog.
The "living room" comes with a built in desk and built in couch. Underneath the couch is extra storage. In between the front door and living room, there are 2 full size closets excellent for hanging clothes.
The kitchen is really just a kitchenette. It is a simple stainless steel counter with a sink, and surrounded by shelves. Below the sink, there is a small water heater, refrigerator, and a hot plate that is used for cooking. See video.
Can I add a dishwasher or laundry to the kitchen?
No. This house does not have any wiggle room to add more appliances.
The bedroom is in the loft. The XS-House has the smallest bedroom of all of our houses. It is large enough to fit a full size bed, but that said, this house is a little small for 2 people. The mattress is foam (or like kind) so that it can be rolled up and fit through the loft opening. At its peak, the loft is 3'-2" tall.
Like on many boats, the bathroom is the shower … and it is called a “wet bath”. We use metal diamond plate finishing on the walls that leave it with a modern look. The shower water is heated from the small water heater under the kitchen sink, and can last about 5 minutes. The toilet is a low flush RV toilet designed to conserve water. You can easily substitute a composting toilet.
The XS-House features a stainless steel fireplace which keeps this house warm in temperatures -35 F. Because of its small size, its 16R insulation is sufficient to keep this house warm in the harshest of climates. By increasing the heater size to the Dickinson P-12000, the house can stay warm anywhere in Canada and Alaska.
Can I add air conditioning?
Yes, a small ceiling a/c unit can be added to keep the house cool in any climate within the US.

Detailed floor plans for both the downstairs and loft include pertinent dimensions, for walls, windows, rooms and door openings. You'll also find the location of all appliances on these plans as well.
These plans include 4 elevation drawings showing the front, back and both sides. Siding and facia boards are called out.
These pages include both the main floor and loft and show locations for outlets, light switches and lights.
Perhaps one of the most important pages on any set of plans, the transverse section cuts the house in half and shows details such as wall thickness, roofing material details, flooring details, roof pitch, ceiling heights, and insulation.
These plans show the framing for all 4 walls, laying out the exact location of each stud.
Kitchen and Cabinet Detail
Unlike other many plans on the market, we include elevation plans for cabinets and kitchen counters (giving you the ability to see them from the top and from the front).
This house an incredibly basic roof. We provide the dimensions for the rafters, but do not have a page showing the location and layout of the rafters.
Electric or Plumbing Isometrics
The plans show the location of outlets, lights, and fixtures, but do not include plans showing the location of pipes and wires inside the wall. Also, plans do not suggest types of wiring or plumbing pipes to use. We suggest working with a licensed electrician and plumber to make sure your house meets your specific needs.
Architect or Engineer seals
Some building departments require a licensed architect or engineer in your state to approve the plans. This often has to do with regional safety or energy issues,for example, hurricane safety in Florida, fire safety in California, energy efficiency in New York, etc. Please contact your local building department to learn about the requirements in your area.
In most municipalities this house can not be built on a permanent foundation. Please check with your zoning department to make sure you can live in a mobile structure on your property.
The square footage listed is an estimate. The square footage we list includes the bottom floor. It does not include the loft or porch.
