This is Ralph’s Under-$20K Small Home he built back in 2007.
Ralph doesn’t live here anymore, but worked hard to create this wonderful, inexpensive house. In the end, it came in at 960 sq. ft. — definitely more “small” than tiny — and is a great inspiration to us all.

He Built A Small House For Under-$20k (in 2007)
Now it’s 2021, and who could have predicted lumber prices skyrocketing, and everything else that has ocurred…
But one thing is for sure, if most of us had a crystal ball of some sort, we would’ve gotten busy building long ago.
Here’s the framing for this small house.
Metal siding was chosen for the exterior walls.
This is partly, what helped make the build so affordable.
It’s got windows in the front and a nicely built covered porch.
Going inside to the kitchen. Hey, how about those orange cabinets? You don’t see that everyday!
Some built in shelving. It’s always nice to see some of that wall space being utilized.
A cozy red couch.
The bar in the kitchen seems nice.
The sliding glass doors add a nice touch as well.
- 960 sq. ft.
- Cost less than $20K to build
- Built-in shelves
- Propane heat
- Lots of storage in the kitchen
- Used footers from double-wide trailer to build foundation
