I normally like to show you examples of tiny houses that are a little more affordable, but other times I still like to show you great examples of small space designs because they’re inspiring.
You can always take these ideas and put them into your very own design and then build it yourself for much less.
But if you do happen to have the extra money, or can even sell off your current assets to downsize, this might be a great option for you since much of the design and labor is already done for you.
So I do imagine that for some folks, this route can still be way worth it, it all just depends right?
I believe this prefab tiny home kit ends up costing upwards of around $65,000 according to Bridget Borgobello over at Gizmag. So let’s take a little virtual tour of it right now.

It’s a modular off-grid housing product intended for tiny house living. At the base are steel tubes for framing that are pre-shaped for you when it arrives to the building site.
The entire package is flat-packed and shipped to you in a 4′ x 10′ x 3′ box and then assembled right there on site.
At just 150 square feet it can certainly be considered tiny and there’s a multitude of purposes the shelter can help with, as always. It weighs a total of just 3,000 pounds so it’s relatively light even though it’s made out of steel tubes.
Thanks to its shape it should be able to withstand high winds and it can even support several solar panels on the roof to make it self sustainable. The architect? Joseph Bellomo.
The intention was for the product to be something that can be used for emergency shelters or any other communities in need of affordable housing but also as a backyard accessory structure for current home owners.
