Off-Grid Tiny House With Additional Deck For $35k

With this tiny house the solar panels aren’t mounted to the roof, which is nice because if you wanted you can rotate them throughout the day for max solar gain. The 8×10 deck adds a lot of outdoor space.

Going inside, it’s a pretty basic tiny house with a kitchen, futon, bathroom, and upstairs loft.

The flip up table is nice to leave down when not in use to maximize walkthrough space.

There are tall cabinets for storing needs. Great for a wardrobe.

The french door entry adds a nice touch.

A look at the shower stall.

And the Nature’s Head composting toilet.

    This is a really nice little house. I like it! I particularly like the floor plan, especially the kitchen, and of course, having a nice covered deck doesn’t hurt. It is very pretty, and the use of cedar makes it that much more promising. For the money, this is a steal.

      Depends whether you like that much cedar in the place. Personally I don’t. Well any kind of wood actually. I like it to be broken up by other materials. YMMV or course.

    I would prefer that the 8×20 be the dimensions of the interior living area so maybe you could have a better size kitchen for example. A porch can be built around the tiny home if desired. I do like the idea of the solar panels not being mounted on the roof.

      Kurt do the math. A sleeper sofa is 7 to 8 feet long. Look at the kitchen and see 6 to 7 feet of counter space and there’s that corner cabinet before the bath. Then you have a minimum of 3 feet wide for the bathroom. Add in the spaces and wall divide and you have near 20 feet inside this home. The deck adds another 10 feet giving you a total 30 feet exterior. If you want more space inside feel free to close in the deck and use it as the bedroom.

    The exterior photo shows the deck mounted on the ground and attached to the entry doorway. Not sure where the tongue of trailer is. As pictured the deck would need to be put on a separate trailer if moved. This is a simple and basic home for a single person or possibly a couple. If you like remote living or small towns this is nice. Perhaps the price includes lot space but needs to be confirmed. The Beaumont area is remote but located in some beautiful hills with a popular restaurant for travelers. Just minutes away from all modern conveniences and transportation services. Many recreational attractions are also close. Come visit us.

      That’s actually a fold up deck… So doesn’t need a separately trailer, and I’m pretty sure the tow tongue is under it… While listing states no land… So it’ll have to be moved to a new location but is ready to go off-grid, without hookups, which means it can be placed anywhere and has higher than normal R-Value insulation, which means they put in an extra inch of spray foam that should let it handle more extreme climate than most THOWs…

    I’m interested in this house and have a few initial questions. Is financing possible (if I were able to put 50% down, let’s say)? It’s off-grid but do those two solar panels take in enough energy to run the refrigerator and all the other appliances 24/7? And it says there’s a stove but I only see an oven, maybe it’s hard to see in the photo? Also, is there a fan of some sort to let the cooking smoke outside? Or a window near the stove that opens? Thanks!
