    I love this floor plan. I’m looking into the viability of building a tiny home that’s just big enough. This floor plan would seemingly work out great. Is this custom built on site or was this delivered prefab..? Thank you for sharing.

      Hi Philip,

      Thank you for the comment! I’ve just happened to come across this blog, thanks Small House Swoon for sharing and linking to us. So far we’ve always designed and hand crafted every frame to the clients needs – every frame we raise is unique, meaning that the space is truly suited to your lifestyle, encouraging efficient use of space and the most comfortable living environment possible. The frame is made by some of the best timber frame carpenters in the UK, and spectacularly raised on the building site in about 3-4 days on average.

      Where are you based/looking to build? We welcome the chance to talk to you about your project at any stage – even if it’s a pipe-dream for now! Our number is +44 (0)1803 732900. If you’re at the point when you’re ready to plan and are looking for a plot, we have show barn at our Devon workshops – – the design of the above home was based on this.

      Hope to hear from you.

    Gorgeous!!! Everything but the ‘gloppy’ black leather couch lol sorry. Would have loved to see the bath too and wonder whether it was handled with the same understated chic and deft handiness as that great kitchen. There’s something really graceful and eloquent in the gentle strength of the whole design, it’s execution, as well as its livability. A most pleasant surprise!

      Hi Putty

      Wow great comments, thank you! You can see a picture of the bathroom here: (I will get this on our website soon!)

      This is one of our most loved frames, and was an absolute pleasure to create – the clients had a strong sense of what they wanted to achieve which definitely shows throughout the whole home. There are so many positives when building with a timber frame – it’s a sustainable source of material (contrary to popular belief that we are cutting down old oak trees, we’re actually helping the oak forest we use to grow by 1.5% every year!), the beautiful aesthetic of a traditionally hand-crafted frame, but above all the flexibility which creating your own space allows – every one of our frames is designed to the clients needs, making for the best possible living environment.

      Get on touch if you’re thinking of building one yourself!

    According to the website the downstairs is 85 sq meters. That’s around 900 sq ft. Still really nice though.
