One of our favorite pastimes is losing ourselves in the fantasy of living in a modern little prefab on a hill. Often, reality comes crashing in when we realize how expensive prefabs can be. Then we imagine being able to DIY something (not that we've ever built even a treehouse) but if we were to tackle building our dream house, we'd start right here with some (almost) free plans for 3 different styles of tiny homes:
Free Green is offering up 3 plans for homes in the 525 square foot realm. The only catch is you have to subscribe to their site which costs about $20 for the year. In addition to the tiny houses they're also getting ready to launch plans for what they're calling the Modern Lake House and the Ranch House, both of which would satisfy those who need a tad (ok, a lot) more space. We love that their designs are simple (and even veer a bit traditional) and modern and are designed to be green by consuming very little energy.
