Tiny homes are all the rage nowadays, and for good reason! Not only are they less expensive than most houses, they have been designed to intelligently utilize space – an incredibly neat feature. In addition, some tiny homes – like the one below – are transportable.

Fortunately, as more and more people develop plans for their own tiny homes, the innovative abodes are becoming easier to invest in and construct. One you might be interested in follows.

TreeHugger shares that a woman named Ana White, who is best known for her DIY blog that offers free plans for building furniture, created her own tiny home in a remote area in Alaska with her husband. Now, the gracious duo is giving away the plans for FREE!

The abode, referred to as The Quartz, is built on a 24-foot long and 8.5-foot wide PJ Super Wide Channel B6 trailer. There is no hookup for water, but that’s reportedly common due to the extreme temperatures in Alaska. Such allows for easier maintenance.

Because there is no running water, there is no bathroom. However, the home is not the family’s primary residence. It exists as a temporary space to live in while they work on another building structure nearby. An alternative plan will soon be offered for those who want to construct the tiny house and include extra amenities.

The interior is simple and uncluttered. The main sitting area features a great trundle sofa-bed storage combo that rolls out from under another bed on a platform.

The rungs on the shelving double as a ladder going up to the loft.

The kitchen, as well, is simple but functional. A counter can be transformed into a full-size dining table (or work table), and the cabinets cost about $200 to make. Wood panels cover the double sink to allow for more counter space.

The Alaskan blogger’s story is pretty inspiring. Like many people, Ana never saw herself living in  a tiny home, but necessity required her and her husband to get creative and craft their own home and furniture. Now, she inspires thousands with her blog which has thousands of projects.

Now that her offerings have gained widespread traction, she can support her family with the online resource, a book she intends to publish, and a pilot show on television.

The intriguing blogger explains why she wants to give the plans away for free:

I needed to be able to provide plans for free so women could look at it and it would create confidence in them that ‘I can build this.’ I knew that for me, as a mom with a single income, a really limited income, at home all day, it needed to be free because I myself couldn’t have afforded to pay $10 a plan.”
