Melanie M. McCabeI love love love the covered outdoor space and fireplace. Rebecca--I have boys also and I was wondering if the plans could maybe incorporate a loft with skylights and/or dormers; it could run the whole length of the house, and even have its own external fire escape/stairs.1 · 14 hours ago

Karen MerrellI bought a bank repo a few years ago for far less than these houses are going for. I got almost half acre of land and put only about $10k to remodel it. I own the land and the house should sit there for several decades. As much as I love these tiny houses and the idea behind them, I find them quite pricey.23 · 1 day ago
Fiona Kathleen MarleyI bought a small <1000 sq ft house for $37,000. Even with overhauling most of the bathroom and the central air, it was less then $65,000. I cannot justify investing in these tiny houses that cost as much or more than mine did.11 · 1 day ago
Maurice Mansel CopelandMy daughter and I have extensively discussed starting a tiny house company here in Arkansas with an eye toward a more affordable design. I have the experience and knowledge to build them from the ground up --including the trailer. I personally know many folks who can't bring themselves to take the leap of undertaking a project like this but want to live the lifestyle afforded by tiny home living. What price freedom? Yes, one can find great values in the "typical home" market, but that's not really what this is all about for many folks. Many of us prefer the stripped-down, simple life that is demanded by living in a small space.5 · 1 day ago
Henri TwistSeems that the tiny house market has quickly gone from offering affordable & alternative housing for plain folks, to catering & marketing towards upscale affluent people wanting 2nd or 3rd homes, vacation retreats, because they are pop culture trendy and cute.4 · 19 hours ago
KristyRae BergeronI think the material cost, design, experience and time vary so greatly that it makes no sense to put all tiny houses in the same category. It might be rediculous to pay $50,000+ for something made mostly out of reclaimed materials and / or cheaper materials, didn't take long to plan or build, etc. But I think a lot of the designer tiny houses with larger price tags are a reflection of the fact that living tiny is becoming posh. So architects (who would charge a pretty penny regardless of the project) are getting in on the action. Keep in mind that many use expensive materials and specialty appliances. Also, cost per square foot works a little differently than in a typical house because so much more utility is squeezed into the space rather than being spread out. I see a lot of people comment about how much more expensive a tiny is than a mobile home, but they are entirely different. Unless you know the total build cost and time, you really don't know if something is 'too expensive'.4 · 1 day ago
Sheila GastonIn my opinion for the money anyway get an older park model for 3,500 and rehab it. Any way I go it is just an investment in a better interior.floor's done this past winter, new roof this summer now.., we can expand in any direction , if we want to when we get our own land..park rent is 305 and than my eletric is 50 to 100 depending on the season. I have 13 x 35 , owned out right and..can do what i want or need as we go.3 · 1 day ago
Lisa FisherI am having a Tiny House built and have found the windows,door, cabinets, countertops and shower surround. I had the trailer built and have hired a contractor. I have set a budget of $250000. I don't have any building experience so I am leaving it up to a professional. I am so looking forward to the freedom it will afford me in the long run. Building starts this week and can't wait till its done. Goodbye big living expenses!3 · 1 day ago
Gordon Kelse FurrExactly. And being creative can make use of alternative and free materials locally available.
One quick thing to consider:
Are you planning to regularly TOW the home from site to site?
Most likely not.
You COULD make it to be easily lifted up off the trailer, then supporting on piers. THEN the trailer could be used for other purposes. If you built the structure at the intended final site, of course you would never even NEED the cost of the trailer, though you COULD design it to have a trailer slid under it should you ever have to move it.
Also, you could design two or more units to sit together side by side or in a tee, or even parallel but separated with a light fabric roof and a deck set between.
The popular rectangular forms we typically see do NOT have to be the limit of the paradigm.
What about a conestoga style arch roof made from bent and cheap EMT conduit with a durable translucent roof fabric stretched over?
Don't limit yourself to the "Park Model" stereotype.

Suzanne D HarrisA fair price is as much as someone is willing to pay for the tiny home in question. No one forces anyone to pay 30k or more for a tiny home. Most people that love the tiny home movement are frugal and centered around simple living, so paying a high end decorator type price isn't feasible. Hopefully, we will see more budget friendly options in the future.1 · 1 day ago
Christopher TatumI built a 12 x12 in my backyard for my kids with mostly reclaimed materials for 1,000 dollars including the price of an a/c and a 32inch tv; and laminate flooring For another 4 grand , I could triple the size and add a bathroom.Could be done even cheaper with recycled pallets for the floors and the walls(with plywood and siding over them)1 · 1 day ago

Stephanie Michelle HollandThe point is to build a space for less and I have seen ones for $50,000 and that makes no sense to me. But if there is a way to make money it will be done. My goal is for the piece of land and the home, I would like to be under $10,000. I don't know if it can be done but that is a goal for me. 23 hours ago

Fiona Kathleen MarleyGiven that most tiny homes cost more than my 2 bedroom house, this is a great price. I am a fan of being able to customize the interior. If there was someone who could help me figure out if my city allows them, I'd buy 3.3 · 1 day ago
