Big thanks to Dwayne for sharing these awesome 480 square foot homes that were built in the community of Orange Mound in Memphis, Tennessee. According to Wikipedia, this community was the first in the United States to be built by and for African Americans.

The homes have the same layout, but different elevations, and both sold for $55,000 (so affordable!). These one-bedroom, one-bathroom homes are new construction and show that small/tiny houses can be built on foundations!

What do you think?

Janet got in touch to show us her lovely 320 square foot foundation home that was built as an ADU (accessory dwelling unit) on her son’s property in Danville, Kentucky.

Although this tiny home wasn’t Janet’s “Plan A” for a retirement home, it ended up being the best one, she says. Now she lives in her happy L-shaped home just steps from her son and teenage granddaughters. She cooks family meals a couple times a week and yet has her own private space.

Thankfully Danville recently allowed for ADUs, giving Janet this great option for retirement! See pictures of her home and read her story at the end of the post.

Kris is a Tiny House Talk reader who was willing to share her gorgeous tiny home on a foundation in Alaska with us! It’s 500 square feet, and was built by a local contractor from a Sheldon Homes design (which, unfortunately, has gone out of business EDIT: We added layout sketches which you can see below). Kris owned the land the tiny sits on outright, and after a couple years of making payments on her home, now lives debt-free!

She moved from a city apartment with neighbors sharing her walls to her cozy home in the country with her own space where she can craft and garden. There’s even a stream that runs through her property and lulls her to sleep at night.

We got to ask her some questions about her tiny life, so be sure to read our Q&A with Kris at the end of the post!

Check out this adorable, rustic Old Hickory Tiny House on skids that’s for sale in Knoxville, TN. Built from some kind of house kit, this 384 square foot home has a metal roof, two porches (one detached) and two lofts.

Inside there’s a spacious living room that could easily double as a ground-floor sleeping area, as well as a kitchen and bathroom. One loft is great for storage, while the other could be used as a bedroom (although the ceilings are fairly low).

At $35,000, it’s hard to beat the price for something so finished — but keep in mind you’re responsible to pay for towing. Make an offer at Tiny House Marketplace here.
