    Love the french doors & dormers in the loft, the kitchen is nicely equipped and seems spacious, and the stained glass window in the bathroom is fantastic!

    I do NOT check email that often, would prefer you to call me at (517) 993-3284. I want to know how you folks started the concept of a Tiny House community having to face city councils, township regulators, etc. Any info would be appreciated. Thank you!

    Love to have a tiny house but some of these homes cost as much as a full sized home! Now that’s completely insane. I do enjoy looking at all the homes on your site. They are great!! Keep up the good work!!

      Andrea Stephens… Depends what you’re comparing to, the high priced Tiny Homes are generally built to very high standards, it would be like comparing a normal home to a mansion of the same size…

      Cost of a built isn’t limited to size…

      It also depends on where in the country you are comparing, some places the real estate prices are far higher than in other places…

      The national medium for cost of a regular house is at around $300,000 for a house built at about $137 per sq ft. Even the highest priced Tiny Houses still fall well below this… and of course houses built to the standards of mansions can run into the millions for upwards of over $2000 per sq ft…

      Then there’s all the extras to consider… A regular house is generally not over designed, so it doesn’t have to be able to adapt to wide range of weather from across the country, it doesn’t have to be able to withstand both and earthquake and a hurricane at the same time, and most homes don’t offer the ability to function off-grid…

      But Tiny Houses offer all of the above… Things like solar power are additional costs you normally don’t see with regular homes but this gives lifestyle options regular homes don’t offer…

      While the biggest difference is the long term costs of ownership…

      If you bought a regular house at around $300,000 with a 30 year mortgage then by the time you paid it off you’d have easily spent over a million total on the house and all the associated costs… And that’s before adding the cost of living in it…

      Compare that to buying a Tiny House at say $70,000 and with a 10 year mortgage you’d only have spent around $100,000 by the time it’s paid off and you’re cost of living in it is also far less…

      Mind, the difference is also 20 years compared to the 30 year mortgage in which you’d have nothing but savings…

      But that’s only if you go all out… If you built a Tiny House only to same specs as a regular average house then the costs will be a lot less… Even more if you can built it yourself and use reclaimed materials…

      People have built pretty well done Tiny Houses for less than $30,000… Some even less than $10,000…

      While those priced higher are basically mini-mansions with premium features like being able to live completely off-grid… Some are built so strong that the walls are rated for 200 MPH winds and have hurricane tie points on the trailer so you can anchor them down so unless it’s the storm of the century you can be sure the house will be okay…

      So it’s not like you’re not getting anything for the price… It all depends what you want…

      I would love to buy a car, but Lamborghinis cost 250k. I would love to buy a bike but custom bespoke bikes cost 5 to 7 thousand dollars.
