Our Dollhouse is easily one of our most popular designs and can be put to work for several uses. Previous clients have completed the uninsulated model for use as a tiny backyard office, aesthetically pleasing storage space, and even as a children’s playhouse. We are now offering this unit in a 3-Season Pre-Cut Kit, which will contain all that you need to create a partially insulated shell. This 3-Season version can be assembled and used as a quaint and detached sleeping quarters for guests to your abode, or as an actual Tiny House complete with any electrical and plumbing you may install after initial assembly, then finish off the assembly later. 3-Season designs are built with an insulated floor system, and then a vapor barrier will be built into the walls and roof.
Our Plans come in handy when planning your project ahead of placing an order for the whole Kit, or for comparing pricing with our sale and your local lumber yard. Each set will come with the full cut list, materials list, and suggested tools and site preparation steps just like the original uninsulated set of Plans but will also now contain the updated assembly instructions specifying the fiberglass and foam foil board insulation installation, the vapor barrier placement in the floor, walls, and ceiling, and topping off with all the kiln dried pine interior sheathing instructions. Each purchase of the Plans will come with digital access to view the set through your online Jamaica Cottage Shop account, as well as a hardcopy that we will ship out to you via USPS. If an order is placed for the matching Kit afterwards, we will happily reimburse you for the cost of the Plans.
