What I can see of this tiny appears well designed out and of good quality.
If I were still in the market for a THOW (am going small house/tiny values instead.), two things would stop me from going to the marketplace site:
The folding ladder. Two ruined rotator cuffs combined with aging muscles makes this a non-starter for me. Better for youngers.
Even more: Not any pix of the bathroom. Not forward thinking about potential customer needs and interests. Unthinking.
Oherwise, a beauty. Stunning setting.
There’s pics of the bathroom in the actual listing… They just don’t always copy all the photos when posting these articles.
I get some craftsman ahip touches adding to cost but even at a fairly high construction labor rate and with top end materials there sinply isn’t 85k of value here. Cost should be in the low 40s at most.
No, that isn’t realistic for a timber framed custom built home… Compared to conventional stick framing, timber framing easily costs 10-20% more at minimum and custom building can more than double labor costs.
Just take the cost of cabinets to give some perspective on the effect on costs… Stock, off the shelf, cabinets can run $60 to $100 per linear foot. Semi-custom increases that to $100 to $650 per linear foot, but on average homeowner can expect to pay $500 to $1,200 per linear foot for custom cabinets or $12,500 to $30,000 for the average kitchen with 25 linear feet. Similarly a custom bathroom or office will run $4,000 to $10,000 or more… And those are conservative numbers as some materials can raise the costs even higher and there’s plenty of ways of adding additional features that in turn add more to the costs… Like the stock is usually made of cheap material like MDF and has a basic design and hardware vs the custom that uses real wood, high grade veneered plywoods, high end hardware, and multiple levels of details from paint to trim to unique designs and layouts… Then add cost of appliances, etc.
So don’t underestimate how much custom can cost when applying that to the entire structure, both inside and out. Tiny Houses may be small but custom is by far one of the most expensive ways to do it!
But even without custom, you shouldn’t underestimate the cost of high end materials, which for this size home can cost over $30K… Just the choice of windows, for example, can raise the cost from a few hundred each to a few thousand each. Going from you basic off-the-shelf Low-E coating single pane windows to custom triple pane windows with R-6 or higher with multiple features and enhancements… Mind, the average tiny house has anywhere from 9 to 22 windows to multiply those costs by and there are other examples of high end materials costing significantly more that can easily add more to the total costs than what the usual baseline costs would be…
While this home also has a lot of luxury features like hydronic radiant floor heating, the deck can fold up for transport, Murphy bed/office desk bedroom, 3″ of closed cell insulation to handle extreme temperatures, fold flat ladder for the loft, all real wood and the flooring that is a continuous 24′ length tongue and groove fir flooring and 24′ length wood lap siding (no butt joints) that were all made from standing-dead trees milled and dried on site by the builder, and a list other details that shows they put quite a lot into this home…
Just the flooring… The average length of most wood flooring sold today is only 2′- to 3′-long. It’s hard to find real wood floorboards over 6′-long. Never mind one that’s 24′ long and real wood flooring is hardly the cheapest flooring option to begin with, so you can just imagine how much 24′ length boards would cost… Add hydronic radiant floor heating that can easily add over $2K to the cost of the floor for this size home (this compares to $7K to $15K just for materials for a 1500 Sq Ft home before adding cost of installation and the actual heating system) and you’re already looking at a pretty high premium just for the floor of this home…
So sure, you can DIY build a home this size for a lot less and still have a good and well built home. There’s lots of ways to build well with cheaper materials and less labor required. There are even a few commercial builders who could build a home this size for less than $30K, but it’s just not going to be equivalent at that price to what this offers… Houses are just not all equal and there can be a vast difference between a basic budget build from a advance custom high end build…
Very well explained. Maybe a general blog post to put up semi-permanently on the right edge of this site so people don’t have to be reminded that the definition of tiny varies, and the craftsmanship/materials make all the difference in the final costs?
Wow! That is NICE!
I’d drive across the state to bring that little puppy home!
It made me curious about other offerings from the company that built it, but I see its a custom, so not necessarily built by a tiny home manufacturer.
…oh yeah, and folding stairs, like we saw in another home a few days ago……looks like this might be the beginning of another Tiny Home trend!
Most tiny home builders are custom builders, it’s one of the reasons for the high prices many of them can go for because the owners are paying for a custom build… Custom just varies from basic choices to can change everything to whatever you desire…
The main ones not doing custom are primarily those who came from or adopted the RV industry business model, along with those trying to pass off RV’s as Tiny Homes. Though, some, like Escape Homes, evolved from only doing models to now offering custom options and even fully customizable models.
Anyway, this is by a Spokane Timber Framed Home Builder, which is a fairly large company that produces manufactured houses, log cabins, timber framed homes, green/eco homes, etc. and offer a lot of custom options and design choices.
Could you please post the name of that “Spokane Timber Framed Home Builder”?
Just Spokane Home Builders… One of those companies that literally just named itself by it’s location and what product they produce…
Tiny houses still concern me due to the lac of structural integrity. Having no secure foundation they remain unsecured in extreme weather. A low sealing loft can get very hot in warm weather.
Tiny Houses, just like Manufactured Houses, can be just be tied/anchored to the ground… Multiple tiny houses have been through extreme weather, like there’s quite a few in Florida that have been there for several years now and thus have withstood all the hurricanes during that period with basically no issue.
Also, since they are built like houses, they tend to be very heavy and thus even without anchoring are typically not something that will be easily blown over. Many handle being towed along the highways at over 60MPH for up to hours at a time and I’ve heard at least one owner say he got his to 90 MPH and had no issue.
Though, not all homes are built equal but on the high end there are tiny homes actually rated to handle over 200 MPH winds and over 9.0 earthquake at the same time. It is possible something on the low end could be a serious risk but most tend to over build them.
For the loft, that’s why many focus on cross ventilation or even have a mini-split in their loft. Along with high insulation values even if they live in a more temperate climate zone… Options like radiant floor heating can also help prevent over heating the loft area by simply not needing to heat the air as much to be comfortable… But lofts are really optional and just one of many design options…
The price is to overwhelming for a tiny house. Where I live at you can buy a house & acreage & still have money left over. It looks nice but, look at the payment for that. Will a bank loan that kind of money on that. I realize people must make a living.
I understand the sentiment, but all house prices just varies by what goes into them and how they’re built.
There are differences between a built new house price from buying an existing home, enough so that many will rather buy and renovate an existing house than built a new one, and an even bigger price difference between a standard mass produced track houses and a custom built house that is specifically tailored for someone.
Housing prices also can vary by a lot across the country… The median home value in Washington is $391,000, the state this is located in, for example… And there’s many other factors that make comparisons to a tiny house not so simple…
Like you may have acreage and more space but you’re paying more for all of that and your long term costs can add up to multiple times what you purchased the home for… There’s also different things you’re not getting, like your typical home won’t have features like radiant floor heating, or other features you’ll only find in a custom built home.
So mind that houses are not all equal and there can be a lot to differentiate even a tiny house from other houses. Along with the diversity of people because not everyone has all the same needs or wants either or will be dealing with the same situation in their life…
