    This house is gorgeous, but is also why I’m leaving California. Why should you have to be able to afford $320,000 to live in California? Now that Sacramento has a new sports arena – WITH NO PARKING GARAGE – rent has gone up so much, that people are having to move out.

    I hope someone buy this house and enjoys it for years to come, but I’m looking at sheds and cabins/garages that I can have finished out and moved to Spur, TX.

    Those who have money can spend, spend, spend. Those who don’t can use our imaginations, find resources such as rent to own and find our place in the tiny house community.

    In the meantime – I’ll dream of walnut, cherry, and designer finishes and upscale appliances.

      re: anyplace is better than the 2016 version of People’s Democracy Of California


      During the 1960s 70s and 80s, some of our crew lived in the Santa Cruz mountains near this Ben Lomond cabin. Before winter storms == and in case of the frequent earthquakes/tsunami == they stockpiled enormous amounts of food and propane since roads often collapsed from rain and shaking. Or just because.

      Still, they look back fondly on those times and those friends. And the views! And the nude beaches! And the personal growth slash spiritual development workshops with the likes of Human Awareness Institute (HAI).

      But mostly the friends. We would do it again in a heartbeat…

        It’s hard that some places are just so expensive to live! It’s the same in Massachusetts. — Tiny House Talk Team

    An increasing number of houses in the 3/4/5 hundred sq foot range are beginning to creep into the tiny house newsletter. Even the smaller houses are beginning to feature luxury interiors, granite counter tops, upscale appliances, and expensive appointments, driving the price up considerably. Personally, I don’t feel that anything over 200 sq feet qualifies as a tiny house, and this particular example (420 sq feet), and its price, is little more than a joke. It is a rather ordinary looking structure, that would probably sell for under 100K (or less) in many parts of the country. Tiny homes began as inexpensive, rather crude structures, intended to appeal to those looking for a simple, uncomplicated path to to an economical lifestyle. The trend seems to now favor the upper middle class yuppie mentality who think it’s cool to have a small house with unique appeal, regardless of the cost. The industry needs to revert to its original theme, and not attempt to price itself out of the market…….

      Great point, Mike. We’ve always featured small houses in addition to tiny and plan to keep doing that but good news if you want to avoid the small ones altogether and see only tiny go to our tiny house category: https://tinyhousetalk.com/category/tiny-houses/

    It ain’t nothin but a shack. I don’t get it. For $760/SF I’d expect way more.

      Only in California…the average home price is $440,000 — http://www.lao.ca.gov/reports/2015/finance/housing-costs/housing-costs.aspx — Tiny House Talk Team

        Dear Natalie,

        Well, at US$440,000, it sounds like a good time to sell.

        Do it now, avoid the rush. But remind the last person leaving the Socialist Progressive Workers Paradise to shut-off the lights.

        ‘Cause there is nobody going to pay that Bill.

  • Avatar Steve in Palm Bay October 21, 2016, 6:55 am

    Large Marge,
    Amen! The politicians (and the do-gooders that voted for them!) have certainly succeeded in creating a disaster. Voters truly believed that by voting for more benefits for themselves from the public treasury you could get something for nothing forever.

    One-by-one my California relatives have moved here to Florida.

    Yes a beautiful house! But with the incurable defect of an erstwhile great location.

    Very nicely done, but price-wise not so nice. Of course it is CA so everything seems to be way more expensive. Of course, FL is getting to be that way also. New homes are going up around here and are called affordable…starting at $200k!!! No property around it as your neighbors are rightnextdoor. HOAs. And they all look alike….not for me. I’ve started looking for a house and everything in my price range is a ‘fixer upper’ and they want cash. I’m starting to seriously look at sheds that I can have finished out. Contacted the county I live in and the smallest residence you can have is 600 sf and that depends on the lot that you choose…could be more sf is required.

  • Avatar Dominick Bundy October 21, 2016, 9:37 am

    Very nice but $319,000, That’s asking way over one quarter million dollars … for That! Are they nuts ?

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie October 21, 2016, 1:51 pm

      It’s the location, I’m afraid. — Tiny House Talk Team

      • Avatar Dominick Bundy October 21, 2016, 2:07 pm

        Okay! It seems to be a nice location. But not the best or usual by comparison to others. That’s a least $200,000 or less.. Still can’t wrap my head around those who can afford to throw away money (my opinion only) on properties like this.. The house alone probably could be built for 65,000 or less remember the small size, only one bedroom and square footage..Location or not . In my opinion It’s way over price,, But I still do like the floor plan, and size the big windows and porch is a plus as well.. Technically it’s really only a 2 room house. Because the living area and kitchen are all in the same place just at different ends and bathrooms don’t count as rooms. so there you have it..Way over a quarter million for only a small two room house..One has to be crazy to even consider pay that.. (again my opinion)

  • Avatar Ama October 26, 2016, 6:24 pm

    Being a SF resident where prices are in the millions, this looks like a dream house! Would have to check access, the roads & local landscape (fireproofing). Area tends to get lots if rain. Not sure about fires around there. I’d cut some if that greenery back. Can’t always count on a fire crew getting to you in time. It’s all a matter of perspective…..

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie October 27, 2016, 8:44 am

      So glad you like it Ama — It’s hard when we all come from different places in the country because our perspectives on house prices are so different. I’m from MA, so I’m with you! — Tiny House Talk Team
