This is the story of Brenda and Marvin’s Tiny Cottage that they designed and built themselves. They did it for only $25,000 and they built it in less than a year.
You can actually see how they did it below, you can look at their floor plan, constructions costs, and you can even inquire with them about buying a set of plans so you can build one just like it for yourself.

Couple Design/Build Tiny Country Cottage in Less Than 10 Months for Less Than $25k
We built our tiny home in 10 months and moved in it on the 5th of June.
We still have cosmetics to finish but more money and time can resolve that once the ship comes in!
Every inch was thought out for maximum storage and usage. We love it and it feels perfect to us!
Tiny Home enthusiasts, Brenda and Marvin’s Tiny Cottage – They Built It For Less Than $25k!
We did use recycled doors and wood for the counter tops. And it really only took us 8 1/2 months to build.
I hope that the floor plans will be what folks want to see. We also figured up our costs to build our cottage.

Good morning Alex!
I hope that the floor plans will be what folks want to see. We also figured up our costs to build our cottage. We did use recycled doors and wood for the counter tops. And it really only took us 8 1/2 months to build. And what only a handful of people know is that towards the end of getting the roof on Marvin fell off of a walk board and was knocked out, received a concussion, and hurt his back. He slept in a chair for 5 weeks or more. We had no idea how he would be able to finish, but he is the most determined, and hardest working man I have ever known.
Our costs for materials were $24,630
Thanks for this wonderful opportunity to showcase our Gift from God!
We feel blessed beyond measure.
Brenda and Marvin
