The “Micro Coach House” is alternative stealth housing designed by William Edward Summers for easybuildingplans.com to meet the need for ultra-#affordablehousing .
The design is super basic: a full bathroom, small kitchenette, and upstairs attic loft sleeping area with a four foot wide standing height hallway. To entertain you must back out the car and use the garage.
The cost of construction is very low with a design that allows it to slip without a ripple into most types of neighborhoods.
The low cost component of the concept lets a person with a credit card finance the complete construction without needing to get a mortgage. Since the building is so simple it can be easily permitted as a single car garage or storage building without an inspector realizing that it is actually a dwelling.
With the “Micro Coach House” it is difficult to see that you are looking at a residence from the curb view. The stealth nature of the design makes the concept ideal for a survival retreat that can be hidden in plain sight. It would be easy to drive by it every day and not see it as a dwelling.
Although the actual living area is less than 200 square feet total it has a full bath and kitchenette on the first floor tucked in an alcove behind the single car parking section. The attic sleeping loft is accessed by pull-down stairs and has about 106 square feet of legal standing height room with more usable space under the sloping rafters. The building footprint is only 14′ x 26′ with a height of 16′ at the ridge.
