Funny how they have gone from affordability to simply outrageous in its true sense of what these were supposed to entail.
Should shift towards self-build programs, many good folks underestimate their own ability to build one for 1/3 of the price. However should you wish to pay this price, tis your choice.
Small to tiny houses have existed for most of human history, so they were not all created for any one point! Like any tool, people have used them for various reasons throughout history and those reasons vary depending on the needs of the people using them…
While what you could build for 1/3 of the price would not be equivalent to what this home offers… The reality is anything can be built to any level of quality, features, and cater to values beyond just the materialistic. The differences can range from very minimal to complete re-interpretation that serves completely different needs.
Size, features, amenities, aesthetics, materials, ergonomics, technology, performance, convenience, comfort, etc. There’s a long list of things that factor in any design that can all serve difference needs, different lifestyles, different number of people, people who may or may not have special needs, people in different situations, etc. and there’s simply no such thing as a set price range that is going to fit everybody!
So these homes aren’t going to all be be the same and they really don’t need to be remotely similar and that’s actually better because peoples needs are not all the same that you can ever expect a single template to fit everyone equally or necessarily at all…
Understand, cost effectiveness has to go hand in hand with practicality and appropriateness but also not forget quality of life and other human needs besides just the physical. Homes have to encompass more than just being a simple shelter to truly meet the needs of people throughout their life and actually meet the real ultimate point of people being able to improve their lives and have the ability to achieve the life they want to have…
If you ignore any of that for any one point then you’re missing the point of having a home in the first place! For many people the point is their life, not simply ownership… For example, some people’s choices may cost them more up front but save them multiple times more in the long run vs paying less up front and paying multiple times more in the long run, the former means they can change their life for the better and the later means they only get a short reprieve but end up with fewer options… Simply lowering the cost of a home is not a cure all, people’s lives are more complex than that and that has to be understood when making any comparisons…
that’s really nice.but its a little on the pricy side.a 3 bedroom house sold on my street for under 90,000. and I live in a middle class neighborhood.
Housing is not all equivalent or giving you the same kind of things for the price. So it’s important to understand equivalency…
A custom built house is going to cost more than a spec or tract house… A house built with higher cost materials and requires more labor is going to cost more than one made of lower cost materials and required less labor to create… A new or recently built house will generally cost more than an existing or old house… A home that you can move is going to give you different benefits than a home that is permanently placed and is not going to support all the same lifestyles… A house built to very high standards can be more durable, require less maintenance, and be more comfortable than a home that is only built to good enough standards… A high end home will generally cost more to purchase but it can end up being cheaper in the long run if it saves you on maintenance, repairs, cleaning, and utilities… Everything, and I mean everything has trade offs!
So there’s actually a lot different that you’re not considering with that comparison… Like that 3 bedroom house also requires you to pay more in property taxes and can have thousands of annual hidden costs in addition to the normal home ownership costs… You’ll be paying more for utilities, maintenance, repairs, cleaning, furnishing, insurance, etc… If something happens and you have to move you can’t take it with you and have to rely on the local economy of being able to liquidate your assets for a move…
It’s usually never as simple as just this house vs that when talking about anything as different as these options… Everything has a list of pros and cons to consider…
thank you for that comment. I see your point and what you said makes sense.
At first the price almost made my eyeballs fall out of their sockets. Than I saw the sq footage of the Tiny Home. Is beautiful in side. Bathroom is real pretty. At the square footage and how beautiful it is inside. That would be worth the price. Comment above me is right. The quality and the fact this was custom built. Beautiful inside and out with class.
This was a home featured on Tiny House Nation last season, if you want to see it in more detail…I saw it from the outside, as we could not go in (the show had not aired yet) and it is HUUUUGE. Four axles and it had a baby grand piano in it! Worth the price IMHO. Very customized. And we visited Tiny House Chattanooga because of their quality of builds.
This house was stolen from the homeowners shortly after their episode aired on t.v…. not sure I would trust this building company!
This may be beautiful and high end but it still doesn’t justify paying $160,000. Most people are looking to buy a nice tiny home in order to SAVE $, and I doubt that most people have $160,000 to spend on a tiny home, sure James makes a compelling argument in his comment but not compelling enough, to justify spending all that money. $160,000 for a tiny house, come on, where is the saving part, to justify the price?
A lot if you think about it and don’t think it has to all apply specifically to you or even someone like you…
An analogy would be vehicles… Not everyone needs a truck so spending over $60K on a super duty truck would be well more than they need but for some people that’s what they need to work and they couldn’t get by with less…
Like already pointed out a lot just depends what you expect to get out of it but basically a forever dream home is going to justify a much higher price than a starter home or something you just need to get by… and again with the point on equivalency…
What it can cost to build a traditional forever dream home can run into the multiple millions for an apples to apples comparison and the fact the average cost of a new home is much higher than this nationally without going into what high end custom homes cost for a better idea of what most people are actually facing in terms of costs. So, while it may seem extreme, there are parts of the country where people will find even $160K is a bargain and that won’t even be for a dream forever home…
There’s also the point of long term vs short term… Most people are actually spending up to multiple times what they purchased the home for by the time they sell it after 30 or more years on all the long term costs… This is one of the key things I think most confuse about tiny houses. It’s not the ownership that has the most impact on peoples lives but rather the effect on long term costs that tiny living provides as it can allow a reduction on a great deal of the long term costs to the point you are actually saving up to multiple times what the purchase cost of the home was vs spending it…
This is why even people who get loans or mortgages with a tiny house still mange to pay it off and live debt free in just a couple of years or several at most.
While, again, there’s considerable differences in what you can get out of it between a starter home and a forever dream home… One you may need mainly for shelter and to get by for a period but the other you are looking for more and sometimes a lot more. Everything from emotional needs to physical as a forever home is one that will have to support you through different periods of your life and address much more of your needs… Not to mention a litany of possible other differences. Like some will need homes better optimized for families and not just individuals, or those with special needs, etc.
Even things like comfort may be purely luxury for the young and healthy but they can be vital and the difference between suffering and living a good life for the elderly and those with special needs. While other things like being able to live off-grid, among other optional features of a home, can add a lot to the up front costs but give more freedom and may add other benefits like saving more in the long term… So even costs can have its pros and cons to consider…
This is not to say a tiny house, even if very low cost, is always going to be a better option for someone. In the end it’s just one of many options people should consider but no one solution will work for everyone equally or apply as well to every situation. The trade offs are just not always immediately clear or the pros or cons always simple… Many things just fit into a larger and more complex understanding of how it all works together and how that will effect you or someone else…
Something else to realize is people needing options reaches into all walks of life and so there’s a wide range of people with different income levels and arguably a tiny home is a much better investment than say a boat/yacht, luxury car, or high end custom RV… Speaking of which, to put that into perspective, custom high end RV’s generally start around $500K and go up to over $3 million… You typically won’t even see features like over 3″ thick walls with real good insulation in anything under $100K… Yet you can easily get that with a tiny house for even under $30K…
So there can be a lot of bang for your buck when you break it down… It just doesn’t mean it can’t still cost quite a bit but that’s everyone’s individual choice to how much it will cost and will depend what they want to get out of it… Some may want more out of it than others but that’s their choice and may be justified by their situation and specific needs…
Not everyone is going to need a massive 470 Sq Ft, not counting the loft, tiny house that not everyone will even consider tiny… Not everyone is going to need a home built to very high end… Not everyone needs to be mobile.. Not everyone will need a forever home… Some people will be better off with other options… But there is always someone with a need others may not have or a segment of the population that otherwise gets overlooked and everything really should be judge by the people who need those things if we truly want to fix the system and make it work for everyone…
Everything just has its trade offs and we each weigh the pros and cons for ourselves… If you don’t have the same needs then you simply won’t have the same costs… Just don’t think in terms of it being a competition or that someone else’s choices need effect yours as everyone can do it in their own way and get what best fit them and their needs, in their situation…
Absolutely beautiful! I would love a home just like this built on a foundation with a lot for gardening. It’s quite stunning, well done! Even though it’s not in my price range, I’m quite sure it would work and be affordable to others.
Oh, this is awful. I just watched the “Tiny House Nation” episode about this lovely tiny house — only to discover that the house was literally stolen out from under the featured young couple with two little girls. Mike Bedsole, owner of the Tennessee-based Tiny House Chattanooga construction company who built the house, has a has a D+ rating from the Better Business Bureau. And when the young couple informed the “Tiny House Nation” show of the issues, they were told that the problem was between them and the builder. “Tiny House Nation” refused them any help, and will not return any requests for comments. I don’t think I can continue to watch this show. At best it seems to be a lie; at worst, a scam.
Roxanne, I saw that too…. what a horrible thing to happen to someone!!! I wouldn’t support this builder at all. Crooks! Praying that sweet young family can get their home back!!!
You are charging 340.00 a square foot which is way more than a custom home with marble and granite, etc in my area which is Bergen County Nj..one of most expensive places to live/build. I built my home and am in real estate.
The argument that this house is worth the price because it can be moved to your dream location( for a huge amount of money, especially with granite and tub) is playing on people’s emotions and that is not an actual value added thing. Additionally, it is illogical to argue that the home is worth this price because you don’t have property taxes, etc..also not a thing. You would rent the land or rv site…an expense. You are basically saying that since your monthly cost to maintain a home of this size is less than the cost to maintain a regular sized house, you can afford it by just moving that savings over to the inflated cost..take out a mortgage and what? “Break even” ? Only a moron would believe your rationale.
It’s a shame this couple list their home. That’s one builder to scratch off the list!
That was lost their home. Good old spell check changing as you hit post!
