    From pictures the builder did take care in the construction. However, what is or isn’t behind the drywall, most important. What building materials, insulation, air barrier wrap, etc. What is under the flooring? Will the plumbing freeze in the winters? Emergency exit in lofts? What cost to move an oversized building? Permits and Safety cars? Police and municipal route costs? Max 13 ½ ft. height for highways or main roadways. Looks like a good price but make sure you get the details to ensure it meets your needs and budget.

    I am a former resedential contractor, and I still build tiny houses, and do remodelling for people here and there, though retired. Though the house is economically built, It seems pretty well built to me, and you can always ask to see proof of the insulation and any code required inspections that were done. My guess is it much over 12′ tall judging solely from the pictures, and so can be hauled down the highway with a wide load truck accompaniment by a reputable hauler. I would call a local shed building place and see who hauls their sheds for them (most contract that out), and then give them a call. It s only a few feet longer than a garage, so it may not be as expensive as you think. Otherwise, it is a lot of tiny house for the money. My only question is, how do you get to the lofts?

      Oops! That should have been “Not much over 12 feet”.

      Looks like access to the lofts, unless they’re okay with just a ladder, will be among the to do list for the buyer, along with emergency egress to use the lofts for sleeping spaces.

      Though, may get away with the front loft not having one because it’s right on top of the entrance. They sometimes make allowances for that because the fire codes don’t necessarily want exit points on top of each other because if one gets blocked then the other will also likely be blocked and then there’s no way out… But it may also depend on how big the loft is and whether the emergency egress point can be far enough away from the front door…

      Rear loft, though, will definitely need that modification if it’s going to be used for anything but storage or other non-living space usage…

      I’d also cover up the PEX pipping along the wall, just above the floor, for the kitchen. Besides being vulnerable, exposure to the sunlight/UV, over time, is not good for it and will break it down…

        Yeah, I noticed the PEX line, too, and it’s not a bad idea to protect it in such a small space. I doubt this house is much over about 12′ tall, but there is a full bedroom downstairs, so the lofts do not have to be used for sleeping, and that is probably the reason there is no window up there. It’s still a lot of nice house for a little money, so I hope someone snatches it up soon.

    He will only sell in the state of Ohio. Quite a bummer.
