With some modifications, it could also make a nice home. 357 sq. ft. interior, plus 357 sq.ft. 2nd story, total 714 sq. ft. interior; footprint: 20' x 24' not including decks or benches. My main goal has been to reduce the cost of housing, while also making the designs sustainable, easy to build and livable. The easiest way to cut costs is to build small, so almost every plan I design is less than 1,000 interior square feet. I've tried to return to the sizes prevalent 50-100 years ago, when an 800 sq. ft. bungalow was perfectly satisfactory. People didn't feel deprived or poor in these houses. Cost: How much do earthbag houses cost? Kitchens: A great deal of thought has gone into the kitchens I design. Baths: Most baths are standard 5 feet wide.

Floors: I recommend floors made of earth, stone or recycled brick. Grain Bin Cabin Plan. This 1 bedroom, 2 bathroom 692 sf cabin will keep you warm in winter and cool in summer.

It also has the potential to provide as many as 12 "berths" for use as a hunting cabin or such. Each berth could have its indiviual heat or A/C duct for greater efficiency. The basis of the design components is to put a grain bin inside a grain bin and insulate the space between them with foam. This makes the structure self-supporting, self-framing (no studs in the outside walls), thermally and acoustically broken (super-high performance), and maintenance free for fifty plus years. The shell is completely recyclable, can be built without concrete, added siding or added roofing.

Don't want to use foam insulation or too far from an installer? Solar Oval Cob Plan. Small Cob Series No permit required - passive solar - small cob buildings SOLAR OVAL ONE is a compact passive solar design with a loft which can be an outbuilding for many possible uses.
