The Eldora 384 is an efficient home for one or a vacation home for a small family. The design can be stick-built onsite, or premanufactured and delivered to the property. The stick-built version shown here has a 9:12 pitch roof and a rudimentary loft, or we can design dormers and/or a steeper roof pitch for a more spacious loft.
About the plan
With everything you need on one level, this is a tiny house designed to be fully functional and spacious compared to a home on wheels. Shown with a 9:12 roof pitch, this version includes a loft for extra storage or a guest bed. We can design a steeper roof pitch and add dormers for a proper upstairs bedroom, or go with a 4:12 roof pitch for a pre-manufactured unit that can be delivered to your site in one piece. Part of what makes this layout work so well in such a diminutive footprint are the raised platform bed and the stand-up desk, which both use vertical space to double up on storage and function. The oversized 12’ x 12’ covered porch provides for protected outdoor living and can easily be screened in.

Big Picture Information
If you’ve found the flyer compelling, the next step is to get serious about building the house. Our Study Plans consist of detailed drawings that let you discuss your project with a builder and begin to work up semi-realistic costs. For more info, click here:
Whether you’re building a code-compliant plan or chose to add our Enhanced Efficiency details to create a high-performance home, you will start by reaching out via the contact page so we can work up a proposal. We’ve found that selling stock plans and leaving you trying to figure out how to get them built is not a good experience. We know there will need to be changes based on local building requirements, and you probably want to tweak things a bit yourself. For a more detailed explanation for why we only provide custom plans, click here:
We recognize that the best houses are designed to fit the site, local climate and the owner’s lifestyle. We are happy to customize any of our plans, so please contact us for an initial discussion.
We do not sell pre-designed natural homes on our website--there are just too many variables to make that feasible. Whether you are already knowledgeable about natural home building techniques, or want to begin to educate yourself, contact us for an initial discussion.
