Modular Tiny House Delivered To You Fully Assembled! (Free Floor Plans)

Most people have heard of tiny homes, but not everyone is familiar with micro homes. This 350 square foot home called the Eagle 1 is a micro-home that feels much larger than its tiny footprint. This two-story, steel-framed micro home is built on a foundation, and when you walk into the main floor through a set of french doors you are greeted by the living room and kitchen. Towards the back of the micro home, you’ll find the front door along with the bathroom. Behind that are the stairs that go up to the second floor where you can enjoy a spacious bedroom with a 50 square foot upstairs deck/balcony. The main level is 200 square feet and the second floor is approximately 150 feet with a 50 square foot balcony.

While tiny houses have been around for decades, the concept of micro-homes is somewhat new but to compare it to tiny homes that range in size from 400 to 800 square feet, micro homes are anything under 400 square feet. Micro homes still have all the amenities of a tiny home such as an independent kitchen, bathroom, and at least one window. These dwellings can be modular, pre-fabricated, or custom builds, and use building materials and finishes that are comparable to traditional homes. The homes are structurally evolved from apartment living with no shared walls, ceilings, or floors and each micro unit has an independent outdoor living area such as a porch or piece of land. Even with less space, micro homes pack all of the basic living essentials of a standard-sized home and come fully equipped with the same level of electric, water, and sewer access as standard homes. The following are some of the benefits of micro homes.

Affordable. Depending on the location and building material quality, the cost per square foot to build a micro home is actually on the higher end of that spectrum. While the cost per square foot to build or buy a micro-home might be higher than to build a traditional home, the savings come from having significantly fewer square feet of total home size.

Reduce Carbon Footprint. It takes a lot less energy to heat and cool a micro-home than it does to heat and cool a large space. Add to this the fact that it also takes a lot fewer building resources and less gas-guzzling construction equipment to build a micro-home, and you have a more eco-friendly home.

Simple, Modern Lifestyle. Micro homes take the principles of the tiny house movement to the next level. People are turning away from waste and excess and focusing more on what matters. And with more people living alone than ever before, most people find that they don't need all that extra space of a traditional home, anyway.

Micro Homes Can Be Built Quickly. Micro homes are hard to beat in terms of construction time. Professional home builders can construct a micro-home in as little as 2 to 3 weeks. Meanwhile, the average traditional-sized home takes on average 7 to 12 months to build.
