This tiny cabin built by father and son for sale is a guest post by Henry Marmol
My son Nick and I built a semi tiny cabin in Wisconsin which can be used as a park model style home or can be placed on private land. The cabin is 14 x 20 with a loft space. This home is not on wheels so ideally it would be moved only once in order to keep costs down.
During the time we spent building the cabin we really became aware of the tiny house movement and it inspired us to build something small but with normal framing that is built to last and hold its value much like a regular home so that it can also be a long time investment that will increase in value and not decrease in value as most park models or trailer homes do.

I am aware of some tiny house movements in our state of Wisconsin which are being started to help the homeless. One in particular that I have learned of is Occupy Madison, Inc. which is helping the homeless by building and donating tiny homes for them while providing hands on learning and opportunities to volunteer. When I started the project with my son I did it so that I can teach my son the basics of building and spend quality bonding time with him. We are now ready to sell the cabin as planned however we are not sure how to reach the ideal buying community. I would like to donate $5,000.00 to Occupy Madison, Inc. from the proceeds of our sale. That is enough to build a tiny home for one homeless family. I think that this would be a fantastic way to cap off this project.
The cabin is being sold for $39,000.00. It consists of 392 square feet with one 8 x 8 bedroom, a 5′ x 8′ full bathroom, a 12′ x 14′ living/kitchen area with knotty hickory kitchen cabinets and a granite counter top with stainless steel sink and a stainless steel cooktop stove and a 8′ x 14′ sleeping loft. The cabin also features 3/4″ solid oak floors and 3/4″ solid tongue and groove knotty pine walls and ceilings, an electric heater/air conditioner.
I hope you’ve enjoyed the pictures of the cabin which is sitting on a temporary foundation that we designed for easy loading onto a trailer or truck.
