    THAT’S MY DREAM HOUSE,, I love everything about this little home.. There isn’t one thing here I’d change.. One of the best so far..

    • Lisa Hartford March 29, 2016, 12:11 pm

      You could build the exact same thing (via strawbale construction) and put it any where you want to for a lot less than 300K.

      • Sparrow March 29, 2016, 12:59 pm

        Really? Awesome! What’s the median price for a strawbale house?

        • Lisa Hartford March 30, 2016, 4:25 am

          I couldn’t say, but there are people here who could tell you better, for sure. Some of the price would be the location you build on, but the rest of the cost is tons cheaper than this historic building in upscale Santa Fe.

          Go here for more information and people who can help you:

        • Elaine August 27, 2016, 11:10 pm

          Sparrow – along the lines of what Lisa Hartford said, you could also look into building with cob (more similar to adobe). There is a great book called “The Hand-Sculpted House” by Ianto Evans. Even if you don’t plan on building it’s a great thing to learn about and dream about!

      • Gabrielle Charest March 30, 2016, 3:11 am

        I’m sure you could, but you would not have the magical ambience of Santa Fe.

        • Lisa Hartford March 30, 2016, 4:23 am

          Lol! And you wouldn’t have the magical property taxes, either. :D

      • Bill Burgess August 28, 2016, 5:52 pm

        Historic house in downtown so the land is premium…I feel I have much better floor plans than his at my 4Fathoms Designs Facebook page. I design in the 400 sq.ft. format and always include 1.5 bath, W/D, D/W, on demand H/W, Solar Panels and hard floors. And yes I have been to eleven factories coast to coast, and no..They want to build what THEY want just like in 1980….They have no Idea there has been a Paradigm shift…

  • Trish Dee March 29, 2016, 10:19 am

    This is an adorable tiny house, very inviting inside and out. It looks like there is a nice size closet between the dining area and living room. Is there storage in the bench too?

  • Deb thomas March 29, 2016, 10:37 am

    I love this site and all the homes it highlights. This one is nice. Assuming the ladder stairs fold up? Not showing the upstairs. The problem I have is that regardless of size, if you are going to pay $200,000-$300,000 for a “tiny house” unless you’re getting 10+ pristine acres, exclusiveness with a view, you might as well have a regular house. I know it has “high end appliances and finishes” but let’s be real here, as an alternative housing choice, it isn’t.

    • Dominick Bundy March 29, 2016, 12:28 pm

      I so agree with you about that overly inflated price tag.. $300, ooo Come on now.. that’s over quarter million dollars here and for what? As much as I like this home.. Makes me wonder what kind of jobs people have to afford or waste money on something like this..Unless you are Trump and Koch brothers rich . You’d have to apply for a 30 year mortgage and be a slave to the bank for at least that long to pay it off and before you know it life has passed you by.. And you just help the rich and powerful get more rich and powerful..That’s just my two cents worth.. Real-state prices have gone crazy.. I can understand why so many now are adapting to the less is more philosophy. and just living in vans, travel trailer or tiny houses off the grid…

      • Eric August 27, 2016, 4:54 pm

        Come to NZ. We can beat that price hands down. Avg house price is about $4oo,ooo to $500,000 brand new. You don’t know how lucky you are…

        • Dominick Bundy August 27, 2016, 5:09 pm

          OMG! You sound so nonchalant about that and excepting.. That’s’ not only ridiculous but insane.. What kind of jobs do people have to afford those half million dollar homes.. (that most likely doesn’t have 80 thousand dollars worth of building material to build). Why do people even attempt to buy places like that? would it be plan greed for money? Life should be met to be enjoyed not a slave to high mortgage payments for 30 years.. Helping the rich get richer and dividing us more into the classes of greedy have it all and the struggling working classes to help them get that way.. whats wrong with society?

        • Elaine August 27, 2016, 11:18 pm

          Dominick – I think Eric is in New Zealand? If that’s what it costs in NZ then that’s what it costs. I guess if you have no choice (other than move from your beautiful country) then yes, you accept it.

  • Canyon Man March 29, 2016, 1:04 pm

    New Mexico has several counties that will allow small or tiny houses. For those looking to simply live tiny you need to research county building laws. Arizona also has counties that allow the same. Cities are the problem for working citizens who need a place in-line with the wages and cost of living. Good luck to those wanting a simpler life.

  • Betty March 29, 2016, 9:16 pm

    This little place is amazing!! I could never afford it, but dreaming is free….

  • jake March 30, 2016, 1:26 am

    This house is also a registered cultural property in New Mexico. Completed in 1958, the retrofit in this house was the first systematic use of solar space heating technology in the state.

    As a building, it’s livable, beautiful, unique, and culturally significant.

    But $299k for 510 sf on 0.02 acres, there? Zillow says it’s 29% below avg for that zip, but 133.5% above avg per sf. Then again, it is a registered cultural property.

  • Steve in Palm Bay March 30, 2016, 6:18 am

    Am thinking of the old adage “a fool and his money….”. While, being a Florida boy I can appreciate the solar panels, at $586 s.f., I could buy something in SoFlo for a lot less and have the Atlantic ten minutes away, were I so inclined (I am not!). This place seems to confirm that some in the simplified TH movement have lost their way.

  • curt March 31, 2016, 2:17 am

    The price doesn’t surprise me for Santa Fe. The price is based on its location and being a historical property. Santa Fe is New Mexico’s version of Aspen or san Francisco and the historic district is beach front or ski front property. I would bet that within ten miles you could find cheap land to hand build the same house for a large investment of time and labor Like the original builder. Being a historic house I would guess you are limited on what you can modify. I really could see this house being bought by somebody from san Francisco or Seattle as a status vacation house. I would love to live in a adobe house and I think you could hybridized the house using cob papercrete haybale,solar panels, salvage materials and even sod house construction. When this house was built I would guess it wasn’t the right part of town and was surrounded by the town as it grew and then became photogenic and the idealized romantic southwest.

  • Bill Burgess August 11, 2016, 1:18 pm

    Location, location, location. It’s a nice Idea but like stated very well above, not an “simpler life” option. I have several of that type option in Park Model RV format that I would love to see built at 4Fathoms Designs on Facebook. I am seeking input as I believe a Hempcrete wall system would be the answer for that application. Cob would be too heavy and straw bale too bulky for that format. I have several options and the Therma-Steeel panels might also be a great option with surface plaster after set up. I am working on a two story design using a fork lift or crane to set the second floor so hi-way transport would work.

  • Laura Smyser August 27, 2016, 4:58 pm

    love it.

  • Canyon Man August 27, 2016, 5:31 pm

    I lived in Santa Fe for 10 years. Price reflects the price of living in Santa Fe. Parts of New Mexico have cheap land. Santa Fe does not. I was offered a total fixer-upper, unlivable for $500,000 before the economy collapse. Now that the economy has improved for some this is probably a good price for an adobe home in Santa Fe. Not that I would buy it but if you want to live a certain place you have to pay a certain price most of the time.

    • Patricia Schneider August 28, 2016, 2:34 am

      There are some lovely spots in and around Albuquerque where the land would be much cheaper and building a little place like this would be more reasonable. I love Santa Fe, but it is a tourist center and attracts the wealthy, therefore, the prices of everything are much higher.

  • Gerri August 27, 2016, 8:41 pm

    For that price I am not climbing a ladder! Why not a staircase? It’s big enough

  • Elaine August 27, 2016, 11:27 pm

    Am I missing something or did the author Natalie get it wrong? It doesn’t look like the ladder goes to a bedroom. If you look at the exterior of the house there is no space for a bedroom above the first floor. It just looks like there are 2 spaces to capture the heat from the sun for energy. I wish there was some explanation of how the solar panels supply the energy to the house. It’s a very charming house but not enough storage space. It’s ok for a weekend get-a-way.

    • Nancy August 31, 2016, 10:20 am

      Elaine, I went to the realtor site and took a look. The very LAST pic on the site has a look at the “up ladder bedroom”. It’s kinda small.

  • Elle August 28, 2016, 2:24 pm

    I live here in NM about 40 miles outside Santa Fe. And all of you who commented on the price tag are correct. Santa Fe has been taken over by inflated home prices for a long time now due to the transplants who came from the coasts. Not a new story. Boulder, CO is the same and Taos, NM is as well. Too bad.

  • ROSEE August 28, 2016, 3:39 pm

    Very n-i-c-e!

  • jm August 29, 2016, 4:49 am

    Sadly true. The high cost of housing in some communities forced “low income” housing to be built by these cities for their service people.

    With median housing prices now between 242k and 290k (depending whose reporting), even with historically low interest rate home ownership is lowest it’s been in over 30 years. Wages remain relatively stagnant, but as the economy strenghthens the interest rate will rise. But with student debts and rising rents it’s hard to come up with the down payment and credit score. 70 percent of purchase loans in June were made for borrowers with a credit score of 700 or above, but the average FICO score for people age 25 to 44 is 629. 20 percent of all households had student loan debt in 2013, up from 12 percent in 2001. NAR estimates that student loan debt delays homeownership by five years.

    According to the 2016 State of the Nation’s Housing report, from the Joint Center for Housing Studies of Harvard University, “from 1980 to 2014, the average real income of households in the bottom decile was down 18 percent while top-decile incomes were up 66 percent.”

    It’s 1999 all over again–maybe worse since we have more people. Lack of affordable housing. Most builders are going for the bigger bucks. Should continue for maybe the next three years and then we’ll crash again. Be ready to buy when it happens!

  • Nancy August 31, 2016, 10:12 am

    I would have liked to see the “up-ladder bedroom”. Cute home tho. :)
