    wonder what that big concrete wall behind it is? I hope not the freeway

    • Paul October 16, 2015, 12:07 am

      ‘Tis indeed a new freeway/road.

      But that’s ok, because sound tends to travel up rather more than it does down.

      • Rebecca October 16, 2015, 5:25 pm

        I would have more concerns about gas fumes than noise. Location is very poor. Nice setup otherwise.

  • Andrea October 15, 2015, 1:48 pm

    BEAUTIFUL!! I would love to buy some land & build a community of these homes. I want know how much are they to build?

    • Lisa October 15, 2015, 1:52 pm

      Me 2

    • Payton October 15, 2015, 7:58 pm

      Andrea, I started this 12 yrs. ago and this person backed out on selling the property. I still want to do this, if a few people could get together and do this and sub divide some small lots, I am in, ASAP. I know what I want built now. I am disabled, but, this has been a life dream. I agree with you ….. no one will tell you how much these cost, or leave a phone # to get in touch with anyone that has the know how and also the land. Hope some one will , come up with something,

      • Rebecca October 16, 2015, 5:30 pm

        Plans for apartments above a two car garage are easily ordered online. Search house plans and look for garage apartments. You can buy the plans and submit them to your local building authority. You can also submit them to builders for bidding.

        The are darlings small homes.

      • John October 18, 2015, 12:03 am

        Payton, here are some places that sell beautiful prefab garages with full apartments over them: Brads Barns & Gazebos in Woodstock NY, http://www.bradsbarns.com, and Sheds Unlimited in PA, http://shedsunlimited.net. If you live in another part of the country these folks will surely direct you to someone nearer your intended build location.

  • sheri October 15, 2015, 1:56 pm

    Perfect for one person or even two, and a dog. Not even sure I’d need but room for one car, but it’s great to have room for bikes and other “stuff.” Thanks for sharing. How much does it cost to build? Is it legal then in Boise to own something this small?

    • Nancy L October 15, 2015, 2:33 pm

      It looks like a sweet little home and apparently they can get away with this in Boise because “The tiny house comes with an oversize two-car garage mandated by local building codes” (see the Realtor link above). So house size isn’t mandated as long as you have the big two-car garage LOL.
      The link also has the asking price and the name of the company that built it. You could contact them for more info.
      I wish they would have a basic drawing of the floor plans for these things so you could get a better idea of the actual size of the rooms.

    • Alex October 16, 2015, 10:06 am

      Yes. Seems like building an attached garage can be a way to overcome zoning/building codes (and meet minimum building sq. ft. requirements) in many areas. Something to think about!

      • Sheri October 16, 2015, 10:19 am

        Of course, now it’s lost the ability to move it somewhat quickly, which is a nice feature of tiny homes on wheels. I live where there’s lots of fires (if you live away from the city and even sometimes in the city, as in Colorado Springs) and I think it’d be great comfort to know you can tow your home the moment there’s a warning that a fire may consume your home. So now we need someone to make a two-car garage with a detachable top, ha ha. Or make a garage big enough to park your REAL home in, which can drive away at a moment’s notice, lol.

        • Rebecca October 16, 2015, 5:37 pm

          Something I have not considered. I live in a forest and the possibility of fire is always present.

  • Jan Price October 15, 2015, 2:02 pm

    Love this,perfect for me. What’s the cost?

  • helene October 15, 2015, 2:23 pm

    I found it on realtor.com listed for $114,900.00

    • Paul October 16, 2015, 12:12 am

      On Zillow, before it was sold, for $109,900… and sold 14 Sept 2015

  • Liz October 15, 2015, 2:26 pm

    This is simply and absolutely PERFECT. It’s all anyone needs. I sure wish I had a home like this!!

  • Malinda October 15, 2015, 3:41 pm

    So much I like about this house. Maybe the angle in the picture but placement of the refrigerator seems odd. That corner is wasted space. I would have to have a rear exit for fire safety. Deck maybe?

  • Dominick Bundy October 15, 2015, 3:45 pm

    Beautifully done. I like that built in desk area.. Very nice workable kitchen that flows into the living space.. And with more than enough cupboard space.. It’s a perfect well thought out plan..

  • KathK October 15, 2015, 4:59 pm

    Nice little house. I live in north Idaho in a small town. I could see myself living in a 300 to 500 sq. ft. home.

  • vee October 15, 2015, 6:56 pm

    Like it! I especially like the built-in desk/vanity (whatever) and
    the updated finishes. What is a real bonus to me is having extra room in the garage to put in more storage if necessary — super!!!

  • Cassie October 15, 2015, 9:02 pm

    Hey everyone! I like many of you love this little house. I love it so much that I went in search of a builder that could build a tiny log home and guess what? I found one. The house I wanted was similar and turn key with a basement was a little over 60k. Now I’m sure that didn’t include the septic electric etc. However this gives you some idea. Oh and for those who would like to know my builder is Blue Ridge Log Homes in Staunton VA. The commonwealth is very strict so I had to back up and go with the pros so the cost is more but soooo worth it.

  • Pat LaCerva October 15, 2015, 9:32 pm

    These need to be legal everywhere in the USA! Some type of national law prohibiting building codes based on square footage?

  • Peter gall October 15, 2015, 11:08 pm

    Thanks

  • Diana October 16, 2015, 8:31 am

    Boring, love the concept of the garage but don’t like the kitchen especially no window with sink and its so traditional and boring! UGH

    • Rebecca October 16, 2015, 5:47 pm

      It is just a box so you can fix it up however you want. Especially with a full garage for a workspace.

  • curt October 16, 2015, 12:20 pm

    like the house- the frig might be a little to big. you can get windows that help knock out some sound not sure if the owner is a big outdoor person – no easy access to backyard – possibly take out one of the garage windows and put in a patio door or even a garage door and the garage could become your patio and would make a kicker of a studio or even storage for a small business. do you think there might be laundry in the closet by the hot water heater? Its a split unit- so do not think that room would have a furnace in it.

  • Susanne October 17, 2015, 8:38 pm

    Isn’t $119,000 still high for that square footage? Thought it would be much less. Should be.

    • kris October 18, 2015, 9:24 am

      Whhy should the price be less? $100 a foot for enclosed space is cheap in urban markets

  • kris October 18, 2015, 9:21 am

    Good use of small lot. On a regular size lot, this footprint would provide space for earth friendly landscaping. Trees or garden or a water feature. The design,decor,craftsmanship, and finishes are mediocre. The Japanese do this beautiFully.

  • Carol Perry October 20, 2015, 9:39 am

    Oh my gosh!! This house is awesome!! I just love the fact that they have a garage you could use that for anything such as storage, camping equipment, actually if you wanted to you could probably make another room out of it if you chose to. The kitchen is my favorite, I just love the cabinets, SS appliances, the granite countertops. I think I would like to move the fridge to another location and put in a large pantry in that spot. I have to agree with Diana I’m one of those people who would like a window above my kitchen sink. But I’m sure you could work all that out with your builder. The bathroom is really nice and love the fact they have a window in there. They have a good size closet which always comes in handy. I love the front stairs and the landscaping around it, looks really nice!! Great Place!! Thanks for showing us something with a different concept, it was really nice!! Carol Perry

  • Shannon Schomaker November 14, 2015, 4:59 pm

    Hi..
    I am disabled, permanently… I have a section 8 voucher, but CAN’T find anyone that will take it, OTHER than a few disgusting places, that have long waiting list!
    I wonder if there are non profit organizations that will help build places, and write them off on taxes… Any suggestions?
    Shannon

    • Valerie November 15, 2015, 4:35 am

      Hi Shannon – I sympathize with your situation. I had to go on disability a few years ago and am really struggling financially. At the time I was seeing alot of tiny homes for $50K and under, I thought it was the answer to my housing problems b/c a mortgage at that price would be lower than any rent I could find.
      But then I found out you can’t get a mortgage for a tiny home, and there seems to be so many obstacles as to where to put them. And now the prices seem to be skyrocketing. It’s such a shame, it could be a great housing solution for so many of us.

      • Carole November 15, 2015, 5:28 am

        Nice house. Yes these should and could be great housing solutions but dealing w code and zoning and ciy issues is a key problem and now they are popular, the greed in pricing. They should be cheaper to build than big ones but nooo, they cost a lot. I don’t get it.

  • Marsha Cowan November 15, 2015, 9:05 pm

    I saw this house plan in a book at a store and fell in love with it. How clever! Wish it were mine!

  • Paul November 16, 2015, 8:57 am

    A stair lift could easily be installed to overcome any disability issues.
