128-sq.-ft. Tiny House Built by Hobby Carpenter


This is a 128-sq.-ft. tiny house built by a hobby carpenter while he lived in Maine. It’s now in New York and the seller’s lifestyle is changing so he’s selling his tiny house.

It has a loft bedroom, and a kitchen and bathroom under it. There’s a little sink, a shower stall, and it’s plumbed for a toilet but the seller used a composting one instead.

You can contact the seller over at Tiny House Marketplace here.

Highlights:

  • I built this tiny house in Maine in 2016. I grew up doing carpentry and fixing things. I had fun building this and have loved to own it. My life is switching and I no longer need it. The design is simple and clean.

  • Here are some more specs.
    Insulation: 4” (R 22)rigid polygon in the floor, 2.5” (R 14) rigid polygon. 4” (R14) cellulose.

    love it! Great Job! I want one but with a real Toilet. But I can’t afford 50,000.00.

    The word that comes to mind is “perfection” not too much not too little just perfect. I would keep the compost toilet. The only thing I might consider changing is the refrigerator. I really like icecream and TV dinners
    so I need a large freezer. But not anything else.

    $50,000? I would only pay that much if it came with a nice chunk of land otherwise, imho, it’s highway robbery!

      Well, it may be asking a bit much to include land with it at that price but it is otherwise definitely asking more than it should for what it is, normal price range for a commercially built 16′ THOW would be between $32K to $48K for basic to high end… and this is definitely not high end. Add, budget builds can be as little as half of this asking price before really cutting corners to go lower and having to be DIY built…

      If it had been built in the last several months, then it would be more reasonable because material prices have skyrocketed but it was built in 2016.

      But listing does say OBO (Or Best Offer), which usually means it’s negotiable and the high listing may be just to discourage any low bidders. Though, being in NY may be a factor as depending on area people there can be used to much higher housing costs, similar to other high priced areas of the country like California…

      In NYC, especially, owning property can run into the millions and there is the trend of more people wanting to get away from the city life for at least a getaway, which this may appeal to even at the clearly premium asking price…

    Very cute and well built. But (cough cough), 50K? Um…no.
    But really nice and well designed! Thank you for sharing.

    I enjoyed the typo: “combustible toilet.”
