This is to announce a new TV series on Canadians living in tiny homes and other alternative houses too called HomeMade: Dwelling Differently. It’s a new four-part series premiering online and on TELUS Optik TV. It already started so you can already start catching up on episodes if you’d like.
The four-part series features Canadians doing home differently in BC and Alberta; individuals and families who have spent a great deal of time and energy to reimagine what it means to build a home within their environment and society.
We hear it all the time…Why do tiny houses cost so much?
Folks on the coasts or in big cities (who could easily pay $400-900K for a home) typically understand it, but if you are from a more rural spot where you can get a regular home for $70,000, the cost of tiny house can seem exorbitant.
In order to help you see where all that money goes when a builder creates a tiny house for you to purchase ready-made, I’m relying on a great breakdown from our friends at Rocky Mountain Tiny Houses. Then we’ll compare that with a DIY-ers cost breakdown.
Rock Mountain starts by laying out its goals: an 8×16 tiny house with average finishes should cost $35,000, while a larger one with great finishes should cost $80,000.
This is Pat’s original cob house (not his current residence) — a few days ago he shared his story with us — click here to read it. He also has built teardrop trailers, which you’ll learn about on that page.
Over the years he has built more than 25 cob structures. I’ve seen only seen pictures but I can tell you they’re all beautiful and one of a kind. One day I’ll make it up to one of his workshops to get first hand experience.
So let me show you some pictures of his first one — it’s a 240 square foot tiny cob home.
Man, I love these!
After you check out these pictures, I’ll send you over to Cob Works so you can visit Pat and the rest of the crew.
