2016’s Best THOWS Under $30K

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.

    Love number 3, the rolly polly one. For that price, makes me wish I had a property right now!

    I love this submission; all of these tiny houses for sale on one page for 30K or less; excellent! I like #1. Guess that makes me a traditionalist, but those cedar shakes are hard to ignore!
