This is such a great opportunity to get into tiny living without spending a huge fortune up front! This 20′ container tiny house, named “The Abilene,” is finished inside and out with electricity, plumbing, siding, and a mini-split. All it needs is furnishings, kitchen appliances, and decor to make it the perfect starter tiny house.
At just $17,450, you’ll get an open-concept space that resembles a studio. There’s a small 3/4 bath on one end, and the original container doors still open wide over by the living/sleeping area if you want to let the outdoors inside!
