Free Green - Tiny House Plans
http://www.freegreen.com/Free-House-Plan-Selection/9/Tiny-House-Plans.aspx

Free Green is a repository for open source, architect designed "green" house plans with 3-D renderings to help people visualize what a floorplan will actually look like built, with plans being offered for a nominal fee or for free through the use of vendor sponsorships utilizing paid product placement within the plans. All homes are designed to perform 30% to 50% better than prescriptive building code energy performance, and for every product that is specified into a FreeGreen plan they show and describe that product's performance from various perspectives including their point ratings in the LEED-H, and (once released) NABH Green Building standards.
