There are tons of reason to go tiny: To reduce your footprint, to have location-independence, to simplify your life. But many people choose to go tiny for one very important reason: Saving money. Tiny living, especially if you have the skills to build your home yourself, can save you thousands of dollars!
So we at Tiny House Talk wanted to appreciate some of the amazing, yet inexpensive builds we’ve seen this year (both DIY and from companies) in our 2016’s Best THOWS Under $30K list.
