If you’re in the market for a tiny house, you may want to check out the Incred-I-Box by Incredible Tiny Homes. It’s an assembly-line-built tiny house that’s 8’x16′ and built on a trailer.

It’s unfinished but comes with everything you need to make it livable – all you have to do is add paint, appliances, and furniture to make it your own. And the best part is that it’s only $20,000! Watch the video below to learn more about this affordable tiny house option.

If like me you’ve been wanting to see more tiny house communities come to life you’ll probably really enjoy this post (and the videos below).

Because projects like this can serve as a model for any of us to follow or at least learn from to create more tiny living micro communities around the world.

I like the idea of independent ‘micro’ communities created by relatively small groups of people who exchange labor with each other to keep building costs low.

Two weeks ago, I wrote about the LumenHaus, a small, energy-efficient tiny house prototype by Virginia Tech. With its very high-tech features, it’s a neat example, but its $450-650,000 price tag puts it out of the reach of most of us.

But another university group has been focusing on designing small houses with a much, much lower price tag. That’s the Rural Studio at Auburn University.

The Rural Studio is a long-running design-build program that does most of its work in rural Hale County, Alabama. The Rural Studio’s 20K House project has produced a series of houses, twelve so far, so named because they’re designed to be built for $20,000. While some have met this budget and others haven’t, they are all interesting examples of simple but well-designed dwellings.

Take, for example, the Roundwood House. Its designers wanted to explore building applications for “thinnings”, small-diameter timbers that are removed to encourage forest health but are too small to be milled into conventional lumber.
