    I’m becoming LESS and LESS impressed with “tiny houses” as they seem to be getting MORE and MORE ridiculously EXPENSIVE.

    My youngest son is about to close on a “fixer-upper” (but a REAL house on REAL property) for 33% less than the quoted “77,000” that this one is listed for and (probably) doesn’t even include furnishings.

    Again, IMHO, ridiculous.

    MEME: “Tiny Houses are for the Rich!”

      Tiny homes work for places like California as a whole, and Denver where a studio apartment rents for 1,000 a month, not counting utilities.

      And the problem with fixer-uppers is they are mostly sold as-is. Which means if it’s a money pit, you have no recourse against the seller, and are stuck with what you bought, subsiding foundation, cracked pipes, and damaged sill-plates and all.

      Seems you’re just operating under a misconception of how this works…

      Tiny houses are just like all other houses, they’re just smaller. So prices will vary depending on how they are done, new vs old, etc.

      What you’re complaining about is brand new, move in ready, custom built homes, which if you were to get as a big house would cost into the hundreds of thousands on up into the millions… That’s what they actually compare to… Even custom RV’s run $300K to over a million…

      So you’re not comparing anything equivalent when you compare new, move in ready, and custom built to old, used, and needs to be renovated… Especially, when you don’t factor what the renovation will cost or the fact the later will likely also cost more over time because it’ll need more maintenance, won’t be as energy efficient, will tend to cost more to insure, etc.

      It helps to understand that long term costs can be multiple times the original cost of the house and what people sometimes choose to pay for are things like not needing to do as much maintenance and having a home that will last decades to even over a century, having features like being able to live off-grid and not need to pay a utility bill, having a home that is designed to meet special needs like wheelchair access, etc.

      Simply put, not all homes are equal…

      Examples like the house in this article aren’t fixer uppers or cookie cutter mass produced homes… But if you actually want to compare to those then there are Tiny Houses built like that and they cost a lot less.

      You can look up examples like Andrew Bennett’s Core Housing homes that run $28K, and there are other examples. Builders like Incredible Tiny Homes have a starting price of just $25K and people who build their own can typically do it for even less and it in some areas there are site built homes that fit the square footage of a tiny house that you can get as a fixer upper as well, prior to the 1950’s there were a lot of small to tiny houses across the country.

      Homes just vary in cost depending on what people are getting and there’s no point in complaining about people who get the more expensive homes any more than there are for people who get more expensive cars… Since there’s always cheaper alternatives for those who want or need cheaper alternatives…

      The media just tends to focus on the more expensive homes because they tend to be nicer to look at and help glamorize the lifestyle but they are not the end all and be all of what’s available…

    A stick-built house will always be a better investment in those regions where prices are still reasonable. But, where I live now, where a “starter home” starts at $380k, tiny homes are a much more achievable alternative.

    This one is a great idea. Love the real staircase. Ladders ruin the concept of too many tinys for me.

      Really depends what someone wants to get out of it… Site build houses don’t let you avoid floods, forest fires, hurricanes, economic recessions, or let you live a nomadic lifestyle…

      Site built houses also typically don’t cater to those who are concerned about environmentalism, sustainability, energy efficiency, and general healthy home design concerns.

      While costs should be compared to newer homes that will also cost more because the building codes are now more strict, requiring better energy efficiency standards, structural durability standards, etc. that raise the cost of new homes.

      While Tiny Houses aren’t necessarily a separate category as they can be site built in areas that don’t have a minimum sq ft requirement… The 2018 IRC ICC update even includes 400 sq ft and less in the updated building codes and a number of states have already adopted the update…

      There’s also existing site built houses that fit into the Tiny House category because houses built before the 1950’s included sizes below 900 Sq Ft, some even below 400 Sq Ft, and some of those old houses are still around… But like with all old homes, you’d have to consider the added costs of renovations, and other costs…

        The one thing that bothers me about the “nomadic” lifestyle supposedly allowed by having a tiny is the ridiculous monthly fees the “parks” charge for staying there. $500-$700 per month for a space, even if it includes utilities seems pretty steep. $500 per month will cover about a $100k loan, which would buy a nice plot in many parts of the country, and put electrical in, maybe even a well or hook up to city water. Only problem then is to get a spot that will allow a tiny on wheels or a really small stick-built… I love the design(s) and creative ideas in many of the tiny homes, but think I would want something at least “park size” and more likely around 600-800 SF to live in. That’s me. It’d be interesting to see what 8-10 people could do on buying a large piece of land, divying it up and each taking a plot to put their own little house or THOW on it, sharing cost of well, power and property taxes. Then live in the house they want to live in on that land.

          For nomadic lifestyle, there’s always BLM land where people can park for free for up to 2 weeks at a time per area. The trade off is that it’s typically off-grid and you have to at least switch between 2 areas every 2 weeks…

          For the Parks, what you’re typically paying for is close access to things like shopping areas, places to work, etc. that doesn’t require a long drive/commute to get to… Many parks also provide a long list of other amenities like access to swimming pools, day care centers, entertainment centers, closed community security service, trash and even laundry services, among others like some are situated by a lake or bay area where fishing and other water sports activities can be done, etc… Basically, some parks are more like going to a resort and you’re not just paying for the basic parking spot and utilities…

          Prices are usually also flexible as the higher prices are mainly for those who only need a short stay but those who secure a spot for longer periods can usually get a much better deal… Some people have also negotiated side deals where they can help do something for the park in exchange for a reduction in the rent or even staying for free in some cases.

          It’s just not as ideal for those who travel a lot but a nomadic lifestyle will cost more in general…

          While it should be considered that some are located in areas where the local apartment rentals are much higher cost for what they’re actually comparing to and for who will primarily consider them… and like anything else it pays to shop around for the best deals…

          But there’s generally always trade offs no matter what choice people make.

          For example, owning your own land is ideal for lowest long term costs but it can make it hard to travel if the property has to be occupied for a certain percentage of the year and costs can initially be much higher because of not only the cost of the land but many areas require certain infrastructure be established and that can put a hefty initial cost to the property if infrastructure isn’t already included in the initial land purchase…

          Adding septic system, wells, electrical utilities, etc. can quickly add up to more than what was paid for the land and even the house combined… While developing the property can increase property taxes as that’s based on the perceived value of the property as a whole…

          While even when that can be avoided by being off-grid it still usually means adding 25-30% to the initial cost of the home to provide your own electricity, etc. but that can pay for itself over the years if you stick with it for the long term…

          Again, generally always trade offs but also ways to make it work as long as you know what the costs are for and what the potential pay offs can be for certain choices over others…

          Many options aren’t set in stone and you can usually work out a better deal for yourself if you put enough time and research into it but some times the costs are the trade off for convenience for those who don’t have the time and need a quick solution and then look for something better later.

          Similar to the reason some people choose things like whether to build the house themselves or pay a builder to do it… Proper planning just doesn’t begin and end with just the house…

    Wow. This is exceptionally nice – bright and roomy. I love the hearth.

    Today I keep looking for the “close to perfect” tiny home. Nobody seems to build one with what I would like. Example, having a room to relax in at days end, with a large screen tv and a perfect built in desk with a computer, printer and drawers to store bills, incoming mail, check writing space, and a pair of reclining chairs to sit in while watching the tube for my wife and myself. Also a minimum three burner cooktop, good size refridge, a good size bed without stairs, clothes closets for two. I am spoiled and want something that resembles a tiny house, a tiny home, to “LIVE” in, I don’t think this is too much to ask from all these guys that are trying to make a buck off readers. What the H are they waiting for. Me just a bit bichy today.

      Most of these are custom builds… So they’re just building what their clients ask them to… But that also means you’re typically not going to see exactly what you want when it was built for someone else.

      But nothing stopping you from going to a custom builder and having one built exactly how you want it…

      Custom homes aren’t models… They’re whatever you want them to be…

    Oh I forgot to mention the blue Handcrafted Movement seem to need a ceiling with good insulation for summer heat and winter cold.

      No, that’s just like the trim, moulding, etc… It’s an architectural detail to give the house more a visual appeal. So roof is actually well insulated…

    I like this one. It has just the right balance of open space and storage. Love the real couch! I would put a TV where the wreath is. I would also add a second clothes rod in the bathroom- below the current one- but other than that, it’s just about perfect for my needs once kiddo graduates and moves out…

    Love that tiny house design, I would only add a hand rail to the stairs, just for security. Well done!

    A tiny HOME, perfect for coming in from a hard day at work and just falling into the sofa with a cup of tea cooling on the table beside a packet of chocolate digestives.
