This is a 950-square-foot two-story small house in Harbor Beach, Michigan that’s on the market for $50,000.

There’s an interesting story behind this house because it was originally in Detroit but made its way to Harbor Beach more than fifty years ago, according to the listing on Zillow. And it gets better… This is only half of the original house. The other half is nearby on another lot.😊 So what do you think, is this a good opportunity to live small for less than the cost of most tiny houses on wheels? Is something like this a better option for you than a THOW?
