It’s not the most affordable tiny house you can find, but it is a high-quality home. Please take a look and let me know what you think? This tiny house is called The Luna.

Mark singlehandedly built this DIY tiny house on a tight budget, and used mostly reclaimed and secondhand materials to furnish the interior.

The entire home cost $30K CAD (~$24K USD) to build, and that includes the cost of a new custom trailer, new lumber, and the rent he paid for a building space.

He and his girlfriend lived in the tiny home for a year and a half in Stouffville, Ontario (near Toronto) at an RV park where they legally parked their tiny house year round and spent approximately $300/month on rent and $100/month on utilities.

Wintergreen Studios built this eclectic micro cabin (less than 100 square feet) with cordwood walls from old cedar fence rails found on the land, ceiling rafters from a local woodlot, recycled glass and mirrors in the walls, reclaimed windows, door and wood stove, and slate floor tiles from an architectural salvage depot in Vermont.

We love the folding plywood bed, the charming simplicity of the tiny space, and the natural green roof!
