This post contains affiliate links.

There aren’t many professionally built tiny houses on the market today for under $25,000, making it tough for many people to get a tiny house unless they can DIY one. But Dragon Tiny Homes recently released their “Element” model, and for a limited time, you can purchase the 16-foot tiny home for just $23,500.

The house doesn’t come with many bells and whistles at the base price, but you can pay for upgrades or make your own over time. Plywood walls are easy to paint, it’s plumbed with a sink, toilet, and shower stall, and this one even has hook-ups for laundry. A loft bedroom with a sturdy ladder provides a sleeping space, and there’s a small area for a love seat or recliner on the main level. What do you think of this option?

Compact, Affordable Tiny House for $23.5K!

I kind of like the natural plywood look!

The ladder and railing make the space feel safe.

I’d put a big, comfy recliner down there.

This is where you could put a washer/dryer unit.

The front door leads into this hallway, and the bathroom is on the left.

There’s a residential toilet and a fiberglass shower stall.

The rainfall shower head is a nice touch.

Here’s the loft bedroom with some puck lights.

Hey there! Have you heard about our 16′ Element? It’s one of the tiny homes we’re super excited about at Dragon Tiny Homes. Right now, we’re offering it at a special intro price of $23,500. The way we’ve set this one up, with all its neat features, comes to $28,000.

So, what’s the 16′ Element all about? It’s our cozy little creation that’s perfect for anyone looking to dive into tiny home living without spending a fortune. It’s 16 feet long, 8.5 feet wide, and has a loft that adds extra space on top of the 135 sq. ft. downstairs. And it’s built on this custom trailer we make ourselves, so it’s pretty sturdy and made specifically for tiny homes.

One thing we love about this home is how you can make it truly yours. It comes with these unfinished plywood walls that are just waiting for your personal touch. You could paint them, stick some wallpaper on, or even add some fancy finishes if you’re feeling adventurous. It’s all about giving you a starting point that’s affordable but also completely customizable.

And customization is key! We’ve got over 25 options you can add on. Want smoother walls? We’ve got sanded cabinet-grade plywood. Dreaming of a shiplap interior? No problem. How about stairs to the loft instead of a ladder, or a mini-split AC to keep cool? We can do all that and more. Our team loves working with you to figure out exactly what you want—and what you don’t—to make sure your tiny home is perfect for you.

We build these homes with the same care and standards as any traditional home—think 2×4 construction and full insulation—right here in Snellville, GA. They come with a full-size bathroom, an optional area for laundry, and plenty of windows to let in natural light.

    What exactly was added to this one to make it cost $4500 more than the base price?

      Great question Marsha. After seeing the video I’d bet that some of the $4500 went to the electric water heater, the wiring for the mini split, overall wiring for the junction box, the kitchen wiring and sink/cabinets, and exterior light and puck lights. Llastly betcha they charged for the exterior siding. I would have expected a door of some kind on the utility space, a window in the living space and some mention of a roofing material and installation.

        So for $23,500, you basically get the trailer, and the unfinished shell, no wiring, HVAC, or plumbing? It must not include a plywood interior wall either as all the wiring and plumbing have to be installed before the wall. Hmmm 🤔

    Not too bad at all for the price. I believe I would ask for two of the optional upgrades — the polished cabinet grade ply and the mini split. In addition I think one more upgrade would be great — construction of a large bay window to add both actual and visual space to the living area. Otherwise I think this is a very livable house for one or maybe two.

    Marilyn, if you look down a ways on this ad you will see that the same 16 footer was offered some time ago for $19,500, and plus the items that we kinda think are not included, the price becomes $23,500in 2024. Inflation? So the price for what he does NOT say is included, is Up from $17,000 (i think it was) to $19,500, and the price for the extras he seems to say are not included will put the price now at $28,000. Which, while misleading, is still not TOO awful.

      Inflation has definitely worsened the last few years, with annual double digit increases every year, but the economy in general has worsened as well. So there has been an accumulative worsening on construction costs…

    I just took a look at their website. You can see all of their models, the upgrades and a reduced price on this one!
