Small House Design
First we started by trying to find a place to put our house and I chose to put my house in Lake Night Horse, Colorado after we chose where to put our house we had to do research on the regulations for a small house in that state or city. My regulations were that my house had to be at least 600-750 square feet to be considered a small house, cant be on stills, has to be on the ground with a foundation, need power and a water system. After all the research we made our own site analysis with a property line and contour lines. Also we put trees in random places and researched where the winter and summer airs came from and lastly where could my house see views.
For my floor plan I tried to go for a one person house but also I tried to make it big enough to have space. And I made the house have privacy by not putting everything cramped all together in a corner or in the middle and made the master bedroom the biggest and in the corner where its separated from every other room. Also a wall where you cant see the bathroom door
