    This house 🏡 isn’t worth $75,999!!!!
    Tiny House Movement is really overrated and too pricey for real Americans as myself and others that may not be able to come up with that kind of money 💰 and where are you going to park it without all of the red tape that our local government’s increasingly ridiculous legalities take you through and then say NO!!!!
    Let’s not talk about community fees!!!! Outrageous!!!

      I understand your frustrations. The prices seem high, but honestly nearly the same amount of work goes into these homes as conventional homes, and they are typically higher quality craftsmanship and materials. Coupled being a niche market that isn’t on a mass production scale, that’s the reason for the high price, which if you live in an area where a studio apartment can be $600,000, is a cheaper investment. The red tape, I am dealing with myself and is an unfortunate mix of prejudice and of legitimate concern which cannot be remedied easily to accommodate THOWs. Just like everything, it has its time and place.

        BS, it is either greed or incompetence. Look how needlessly complicated it is for another.
        We build 1500sq’ houses on slabs for less than that, about $50kcommercially and why you should contract your own and save $50-$200k the developers gets.
        My 150sq’ THs only cost $4k of 95% new material, some labor to build as more simple.
        And stop building TH on wheels unless you plan to tow it a lot. Build them to travel on a flat bed trailer, tow truck and save a lot of money. Or at least if you buy a trailer is can be used instead of rusting, tire rotting under a TH.
        And seriously think about making it 10 wide which is far more functional vs 8′. A wide load permit is only like $10 for a yr and if you have a flat bed tow truck move it, you don’t need that as they already have it.

    I agree , the price is outrageous. I am a commercial builder and from a price standpoint paying 475 per sq/ft for essentially a stick built home is crazy, I build midrizes with high end finishes that are less expensive. Most people that are interested in the tiny house movement are looking for freedom, many being financial freedom as they can not afford conventional housing. These trailers shouldnt go over the $40k mark in my opinion. And to justify the price by stating that the craftmanship superceedes the quality in a conventional house, I dont see that in these pictures. My suggestion build something worth buying and pay attention to the customer demographic.

      The price for this one is probably over stated, no argument there, but you shouldn’t use a direct cost per square foot comparison because those costs are not linear nor scale consistently with size when building a much smaller structure.

      For example, unlike a large house you don’t have hallways and other low cost spaces that will reduce the cost per sq ft average in a tiny house. High cost areas like the kitchen and bathroom make up the majority of the space in a tiny house and will typically be scaled down the least. The amount of labor is also not necessarily significantly less as building a tiny house typically requires optimizing to every square inch vs every square foot or so that a typical house is done to. So you’re naturally going to get a higher average even with lower total costs, which can make cost per sq ft comparisons very misleading…

      Even similar size houses built to the same cost per sq ft can have different build quality. So cost per sq ft is not a very good way to measure value to begin with…

      Though, the costs of a custom built home can also be much higher than a conventional tract or spec built house. But the reasons people choose to go that route are similar to why people would do things like get custom built furniture instead of going to Ikea and get furniture for less than what just the materials would cost a custom furniture maker…

      And people can have a lot more reasons for going tiny than just costs… So not everyone will fit the stereotype demography you’re associating with tiny houses and that’s going to be reflected in the market.

      That said, there are budget builders but just like cars, boats, phones, and every other product out there that caters to the masses there’s also going to be mid and high end builders to cover that demand too…

      The main issue is the lack of financing options. So most of the people who are buying tiny houses are the ones who want higher end options and can afford to pay for it out of pocket. While those who want to focus on affordability will typically not be able to afford anything approaching $40K, and not many people know how to work around that… and that just gets compounded by the difficulty of being able to legally live in a tiny house, which often limit choices and often can impose higher minimum costs. So there is a bit of disproportional representation in the market as builders ultimately have to cater to those who will actually buy a home from them…

        I disagree with several of your points, but I do agree with one price per square foor is not the best way to campare to a traditional real property as it is not one.
        I believe there a few factors that attract people to tiny housing whether mounted on a trailer or not and cost is probably the biggest.
        Your point that a hallway in a house not is low cost is not really accurate, it is ginished space it may not be a kitchen or a bathroom but shares the same cost as any other space in a house.
        I dont believe that building tiny is anymore labor intensive then building a regular home. Can someone dump more money where ever they want of course they can, they can put every fine material that the trailer can sustain. But that goes back to the cost of the house and what I can tell you is that the materials used in this tiny house are no where near the coat of the mateeial we install in high end condos along Miamis coastline. There is no way that the cost of the structure nor the utilities can cost the same as those we install down here. Reinforced concrete is way more expensive than lumber or metal studs. These house have mini split HVAC system with no ductwork, they have pex pipe in lieu of soldered copper, the electrical wiring is guaged down and ran in romex or 12 volt sheathed wiring. You also dont assume the costs associated with arhitectural design, engineering fees, impact fees, sewer and water connections, land procurement costs, etc…
        As far as time is concerned you also cant compare, these homes have a much smaller foot print (meaning less cost compared to an equally finished typical home) and typically the materials used are easier assembled.

        And the last thing I have to say in disagreement with you is sure you may have custom work done in these homes but I havent seen anymore than you would traditionally find in a regular scale house ( tile, kitchen, bathroom, flooring, counterspace, etc…)
        So I stick by what I said and I would hope that people would be wise enough not to pay more than $40k for a home this size as they will just be inflating costs of these homes, which I really like by the way. I am going to build a tiny home soon to see if I can get into this market but I assure you it wont be the overinflated money pit above.

          You’re free to disagree but things like a hallway isn’t going to cost the same as other parts of the house. It just won’t need as much complexity, materials, or is even meant to have a lot put into them than what most other spaces of a home are built to…

          Besides, the point was the bathroom and kitchen, which can cost thousands more than other part of the house, can have a very big effect on the cost per sq ft calculation because in a tiny house they represent over 50% of the total space, even over 80% in some tiny homes, and thus significantly raise the cost per sq ft average even with a much lower total cost… That’s just how the math works, if you built a large house where the kitchen and bathroom represented over 50% to over 80% of the total space then your cost per sq ft will be a lot higher than average too…

          So you may disagree how much that has an effect but make no mistake that it does have an effect…

          I’m pretty sure you’ll also find that there’s a lot more than just appearances that effect the costs. Like if you were to do custom cabinets that means doing things like taking raw materials and building them from scratch to a level of detail and possible additional features that can go well beyond what you would buy off the shelf…

          Appearances also won’t tell you things like whether the home has any details beneath the surface that would effect costs like radiant floor heating, having off-grid functionality, being built to handle extreme conditions and weather like over 200 MPH winds, temperatures from 137 F to -100 F, being rigid and strong enough so drywall and tile won’t crack and break down every time the home is moved, etc.

          There are even some builders that specifically cater to those who want to be mobile and thus construct the homes with materials that are strong but also light weight and can make them up to a few thousand pounds lighter than most other tiny houses but again not something you will know by just looking at one… So while some homes are over priced, that’s not true of all of them…

          Mind, as well, that some people specifically go custom for reasons like they may be chemically sensitive and simply can’t live in a standard house without getting sick, or they care more about things like sustainability and environmentalism than they do affordability, or they care more about their long term costs which can be up to multiple times what the house cost to purchase and those long term savings are what actually allow them to achieve the life they want to have, among many other reasons why some people choose to go custom because they want things they may not be able to get from just a standard house build.

          So I understand what you’re trying to say, it would be great if everyone only needed certain minimums that could be easily provided at low cost, but the actual market is more complicated than that and not everyone will make the choices that others think they should because not everyone’s needs are the same and their situations can be very different.

          There’s actually more than a few budget builders out there. Examples like Incredible Tiny Homes have models that start at $15K but they still have clients who commission them to build much higher cost homes that can go even above $100K and that’s despite them charging thousands less than most of their competitors, especially for custom builds… So it’s something to understand that a lot of these prices are down to people’s choices and that’s not something the builders can control…

          That said, I certainly hope you succeed in your endeavor… More than I like to count of the budget builders have gone out of business because they either underestimated the actual costs to sustain their business or they couldn’t find enough buyers to actually buy their budget homes… Though, that was sometimes because no one even knew they were in business as budget builders tend to get little to no coverage in the industry and not enough people look them up on their own, especially if there was nothing to make their homes stand out.

          But there are signs the issue with financing is starting to change and we should start seeing more people being able to opt to get more budget priced tiny homes that really need them, which is the game changer the industry really needs because not everyone can afford even a $15K home when they need to pay it with out of pocket money but won’t see any cost savings until after they start living tiny first and they need that change to actually be able to afford the home… So something that actually gives them the time and flexibility to be able to do it properly can potentially completely change the market from how it is now…

    I agree on the price being too high. I have long been interested in living in a tiny house, LONG before it became trendy. Now, I feel like I’m being priced out of the market. Yes, they can be done cheaper if you build it yourself. I don’t have the time, nor the skill set (or tools) or inclination to build one myself, never mind having the space to build it. So I would be looking to have someone build it for me when the time comes. The other thing is funds. Yes, there are financing options sometimes for these. I don’t have a huge down payment saved and at my income, it would take quite a while to save it up. I feel like the tiny house movement in large part is becoming about bigger and better and more fancy. I wish it would go back to the times of when if you had $3500 and had access to free or reclaimed materials, you could create one. Or you could make one for 10K like Dee Williams’ first tiny home. I will still continue to dream about a tiny house someday, but seeing these prices of 75K becoming the norm, it’s scary and disheartening.

      There actually isn’t a norm, just different levels and types of building. The market has mainly just grown to include more options for a wider range of people, like there’s a lot more families going tiny these days when it used to be just individuals and maybe couples. Many have also gotten bigger and aren’t really all that tiny anymore but there are still people doing them for as little as a few thousand and there are budget builders for those who need someone to build it for them at a reasonable cost.

      Look up examples like Core Housing Solutions LLC, Incredible Tiny Homes, Houses Built Tiny LLC, Tiny Texas Houses, and Mini Mansions Tiny Home Builders LLC to name a few… Incredible Tiny Homes has models starting for as low as $15K…

      Many of the budget options just don’t get a lot of coverage for the same reasons you generally don’t see much on anything in the budget range like phones, cars, etc…

    I think if a tiny house builder is selling to a mass market then they should build different models ranging in price starting about $10,000 for a small base model. Then go up to 20,30,& $40,000 for larger models with more up grades. Things like bigger appliances, larger showers & then a tub, maybe the addition of a laundry area or cabinetry.
    They should save the expensive builds over $50,000 for customized requests only. Rather than build these ridiculous, over done, over priced tiny houses with hopes that someone with deep enough pockets will buy. If someone wants a customized $75,000 tiny home go ahead & have one built. But they should save the expensive build for someone who actually wants it.
    We are getting ready to begin building our tiny house. We have a budget of $50,000. But our Thouse is going to be built custom to our needs. & I want a lot of specific things. We are willing to pay extra for the things we truly want. As well as using as much repurposed materials as possible. This is going to be our forever house so we want it the way we want it. But I could never pay that much for someone elses idea of customizations. They just wouldn’t meet my criteria for paying that much.
    Since Thouses can be built for under $20,000, that’s what they should do unless otherwise requested by someone who’s got money down.

    That layout is a waste of good space. A kitchen with no cupboards and unusable floorspace under the kitchen table. Something that looks like a table with a couple of cupboards underneath and a space for a chair. Though it is not wide enough to be a comfortable table and too high needing a barstool – which are usually annoying to sit on. Then, what is going on under the staircase? Is that a window and again some wasted floor space, which could have been used for clothing cupboards? The fridge is place, so it demands too much floor space between it and the kitchen counter top. The microwave oven is unusable, since it is way too high up – no one, in their right mind would take out hot food from that high position – it is dangerous. And then there is a corner desk placed at the only position, where it would be possible to put something like a couch. Sorry, but this space is not well thought out.

    • Avatar James D.
      October 24, 2019, 3:22 am

      Well, considering the large number of homes with over the range microwaves it’s safe to say that’s not a universal issue. After all people are not all the same height and what’s optimal can be thus different for different people. Besides, it’s under the loft so it’s not actually that high and it’s not built in so you can just move it to another location and use the shelf for something else…

      The builder specifically left some space for the new owner to customize. So there’s intentionally some open spaces, the new owner just has to decide what to use the spaces for, but that space under the stairs is just regular storage space and there’s no window there. While the space between the wood stove and fridge is part of the kitchen counter top/breakfast bar… The kitchen also has a Lazy Susan turn table below the kitchen counter top by the left corner to make better use of that corner space you otherwise could not easily reach…

      The corner table by the door is debatable, some would agree that it would be better left open for options like a sofa or chair, too small an area for a couch, but some people would prioritize a table for work, dining, etc. and would consider just a sitting space a waste of space… While there’s usually a trade off between walkway space and how much depth you give the counter tops… So those are things that can depend on people’s priorities…

      Overall the house was built for durability, minimal maintenance, and high insulation values with 5″ of insulation in the floor and 3″ in the wall, which is more than you’ll find in most tiny houses.

      It was custom built and it was the first home built by Humble House Tiny Homes and the builder’s website has more details and photos of this home than found in the sale’s listing…
