Assuming we have land area with 160 – 180 square feet dimension, what kind of house that can be planned? There are several ideas we can find it. First idea is looking at tiny house on Jay Shafer tumbleweed tiny house company. There is portable house, it’s called Fencl which has 130 square feet dimension.

This layout can be adapted to build a house with the same size, but it can build on permanent. We should modify it first.

For better arrangement, bedroom is placed behind living room and in front of kitchen. Now room arrangement for 130 square feet is ready.
Next idea is looking for idea from apartment room. There are many apartment with this dimension. Similar with Fencl, we have to modify it first to make fit with actual shape of land area where this house will be built.

House with 130 square feet dimension can be built with width 10 x 13 square feet. Identifying first four main rooms first: living room, bedroom, kitchen and bathroom, then try to draw several room arrangement positions, include with its size.
