THE Ramapo is the flagship of our free plan series.  This is a 3 plywood large building made as square as possible without any extra fanciful saw work.  This originally started out as a sketch for a bunkhouse on a rural property.  The square walls, simple roofline, and single windowed facade make for a quick frame-up.  If you learned on Tuesday that the in-laws were coming you could erect this little mansion in time for their Friday arrival.

The original intention was to place a 38" twin size bunkbed to the left and a 54" full size bed on the right.  By shifting the door about 2' left you could have room for a queen mattress and floor space to tango.  The other option is to squeeze in a small powder room to the right of the door, possibly with a lofted bed above.  The possibilities here are endless and only limited by the mount of warning you have to build.

Most jurisdictions should not require a building permit for such a small structure.  However you may want to inquire as to whether a zoning permit is necessary.  As always, obey setbacks and don't irritate your neighbors. 



All plans include four elevations, floor plans, foundation plans, at least two building sections, framing plans for the second floor and/or roof, and notes and construction details. This is everything you will need to build, but may not be everything you need to get a permit. Check with your local jurisdiction. Electrical layouts, cabinet elevations and engineering are not included.
