Just when I think I’ve seen it all! This is a Tiny Castle on Wheels, built by Justin and Jola.

When travelling, the turrets of the home fold in, making the housetruck look more or less “normal.” But as soon as they arrive at their destination, the couple opens up the house and you see a striking medieval castle. No way!

Jola works with her twin as an acrobat in New Zealand, and I’m certainly jealous of her castle home. Watch the video tour posted below with Living Big in a Tiny House and check out this post for more details.

This is a Room to Move home in New Zealand.

It’s a super solar-powered house built from SIPs. New Atlas wrote:

Ex-boat builder and carpenter Jeff Hobbs from New Zealand-based studio Room to Move was recently commissioned to build a special bespoke tiny house for local resident Briar Hale. The 23.95 sq m (257.8 sq ft) house was built using structural insulated panels (SIPs) made from plywood and foam; recycled wood materials and sports multiple off-grid solutions. Hobbs chose to build the home using 62 mm (2.45 in) thick SIPs due to their lightweight, strength, durability and excellent insulation qualities, and also meant that he had extra floor space to work with when designing the home’s interior.

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.

But Why?
