Sweet Pea: A house for one, with room to grow
Sweet Pea was designed around our friend Gina’s desires to live comfortably and spaciously, and to someday get hitched and start a family. The french doors open at the side, which stretches the space and avoids splitting it down the middle. The skylights, windows and bump-out nook invite the outdoors inside, adding to the feeling of spaciousness. The sleeping loft was built with as much space as possible to accommodate two adults, and the window seat (with storage underneath) is a great sleeping option for kids. We also specifically opened up the bathroom and included a tub/shower combination, unlike the more standard shower-only models, to accommodate bathing a small child. Sweet Pea is 136 square feet of living space, not including the sleeping loft. It sits on a trailer that is 16 feet long.
While the house was designed with Gina in mind (read more about Gina’s story here), it is an inviting design for anyone who wants a particularly spacious tiny home, or feels their family might be on its way to growing.

What the Plans Include
Our plan packages are focused on helping you build your own Sweet Pea, so we’ve included over two-dozen illustrations of the structure, including details for the following:
- Floor plans
- Custom-built trailer features and plans
- Floor framing
- Wall framing
- Roof framing
- Exterior elevations
- Detailed section for floors, walls and roof
- House to Trailer Connections (Bolting and the use of tension ties)
We do not include electrical and plumbing diagrams, appliance specifications, and interior sections to show cabinetry details and counter heights. Why not? Because we believe each Sweet Pea is unique and we want to encourage you to install the sink, stove, tub and toilet that will fit your unique needs.
With all of our plans, we recommend a copy of Go House Go, our how-to manual for building a tiny house on wheels. It’s the book Dee wished existed when she built her little house, and she wrote it to save everybody else all the time and trouble that she went through to figure out how to build smart and safe.
