Actually, this house is priced very fairly. It boils down to “you get what you pay for.” People can surely get a house for less but I doubt if will be this nice! People who say this price is “nuts” obviously have no idea of what it takes to build a house of this quality. Remember, Home Depot offers storage sheds that look like tiny houses for under 5k. Again, you get what you pay for.
When tiny houses first came about I had plans to buy one. The trouble was that I could not find a community that was zoned for them so I waited thinking it would eventually happen. During my wait, tiny houses skyrocketed so now I have NO plans to buy one. Maybe one day I will build one of my own but I would NEVER buy one at current prices.
Same here. I was over the moon when the THM first appeared because it answered so many needs for me, but there was no place to park it because of suffocating McMansion codes and zoning laws (to wit: Dee Williams’ TH in WA state that she is forced to vacate for several months out of every year.) So, I have been waiting for this to change (while I planned my THOW.) Now, the profiteers have moved in, just like they did with Hobbit Holes, Bermes, floating homes, house boats and living on sailing vessels; the docking, support services, fees and maintenance making this a rich man’s game. There are days when I see my dreams of a THOW of my own moving farther and farther away as the prices rocket. I’ve seen THOW’s that are going for $325.00/sf!!! I don’t know what the answer is but at present, it’s very disappointing and I’m struggling to keep my enthusiasm for the whole movement alive.
agreed. It costs about ten grand to fully build and deck one out. Why would we pay so much more to get one pre-built? It’s on sale is laughable. I can buy a gently used jaguar for less…
Sure Charlie… but remember a TH doesn’t bite. Jaguars do… lol
I agree the price is pretty much in line with what I’ve been seeing, if not actually pretty reasonable. People who are unhappy with the price must be remembering articles about tiny homes that folks have built themselves from scratch for half the price – but not everyone has the mad skills to do that. So sure you can have this place at half the listed price if you’re willing to just get the material sans labor and pour your own sweat, time and construction expertise into it. But if you need to have someone build it for you, then that’s where the other half of the price goes. It’s fair and frankly, just how things are and always have been.
Meanwhile, this is a nice unit – fairly standard, but some extra nice touches are the stairs vs. ladder, the space for a w/d, and just on a personal note, love the HOME clock! Must research where to get one.
Perhaps the price seems fair or not depending upon where we live. I am in the Midwest. To me, it’s quite high. To someone in New York or LA it would be reasonable.
Why are wooden coutertops in tiny house kitchens so common? Yeah, they look cool, but they are a pain to keep clean, and not practical long term. Surely there are good, lightweight, green countertop materials that would be more appropriate.
I agree, wooden counter tops are definitely not practical unless sealed with a marine type waterproof finish.
Although this is a very nice tiny home, they certainly aren’t cheap. Feels like my dream of owning my own home tiny or not will never come true.
Years ago I stayed with friends in their pre-revolutionary war era home and it had wood countertops in the kitchen. I got up in the morning and there were mushrooms growing out of the wood! Seriously! I think I would go with something less au naturelle…
I think part of the reason for the wood counter tops is just because it is easy for the builder to put in, and is cost effective; cheap. Another reason is because tile surfaces don’t move well, nor do granite counter tops; they crack and split up with any torquing travel motion.
Personally, I’d prefer a stainless steel, copper or aluminum counter surface. Easy to clean and thus are more sanitary. There are some composite materials, I’ve heard, that travel well, but even there, they are porous with tiny microscopic holes that are places for bacteria to hide and grow. Better a sheet metal surface you can scrub down with a cleaner that has a fine pumice to it, and then give it a once over with some bleach to keep things good and clean (and bug free.)
I love the idea of the stainless steel or Copper on the kitchen counters!!!!
Wood counters == as a retired restaurant owner with several decades experience, I verify wood’s durability and cleanability. All my prep areas and the sandwich-making boards at the grill were wood. Of course, we had superb air-exchange.
One of my reservations about many TH cooking areas concerns lack of a decent exhaust fan to clear air over the sink and range. Moisture plus heat increases the potential for mold. And mushrooms.
Mushrooms == I suspect a two-century old building might have air-exchange issues. Mold is like cockroaches and mice and ants, any you see is multiplied by a thousand in areas you can’t see.
strongly agree that air exchange and exhaust are significant issues for small spaces. These issues are seldom addressed by either the builders or the consumers of Tiny Houses. I can imagine what it would be like after frying a half pound of bacon some Sunday morning or after a bout of dysentery……….. highly unpleasant.
I would be nice if the GVWR of the wheeled Tiny Home Review was part of every build. Does this one weigh in at 15,000 lbs?
This is nicely done – w/d, stairs, nice storage and wonderful looking outside; good price too.
The cost of this tiny house is only half the problem. Notice the dually which is required to pull it. They don’t come cheap unless you get an old one which is OK if you are a skilled mechanic.
If you look for problems everywhere, you will find them. (Sigh) If an owner plans to use it RV style and travel over the country, then cost is really not a factor for the owner. If you’re only going to move it a few times a year, if at all, hire someone or rent a truck. There! Next problem??
I am interested in tiny houses, but how do I find out how to get one. I live in Michigan. I would like to check them out and get price.
Nicely done! I noticed the clock immediately also; thinking how quickly from China can I get one?!?!? Ha!
It’s not LOOKING for a PROBLEM when one has to consider the entire cost which simply goes with proper planning! 🙂 it is a must to ask yourself 1)how often will I move this house? 2) how much is the weight so I can purchase the expensive vehicle to pull it? Or rent, hire.
3) or never move it at all? The vehicle IS also a major investment; Charlie is correct!
Found the clock. Walmart, $19.97.
Very nice. Just curious, how is this leveled as parked? I have seen leveling jacks on the TV shows. Does this have leveling jacks? Also, can’t quite tell, is the refrigerator part of the wall under the stairs?
Yes, the fridge is under the stairs. The fridge they used looks a little smaller than the space that was built for it, or at least shorter, so the owner could also put storage in above the fridge if s/he wanted.
There’s a much larger gallery for this particular tiny home that you can see here: http://www.tinytreasurehomes.com/gallery.html
If you look at the external photos, specifically the ones where it is parked in a field near a pond, there are indeed leveling jacks under the house when it is parked 🙂
please allow me to make a negative comment! There is no political party called “The Tiny House Movement”, where poverty level incomes are entitled to dictate prices that can be charged for the small and movable houses. Very small living spaces, movable or not, are of interest to more than a single demographic, there is no single group of people with the same views, needs, wants, and incomes. I have seen tiny off grid places that very young people have built for themselves for $10,000. Also, I’ve seen larger more well crafted, versatile places for $70,000. If you want a flush toilet and a dishwasher, you can have it and if you want a hay filled mattress on the floor and an out-house, you can have that. There is room for all mind sets. I admit I am tired of the whining about prices.
“Affordability” is different for everyone, and the costs of upkeep, electricity, plumbing, etc. are also major factors in that. Where I live, $70k is not even a down payment on a home, so that much for a tiny house is perfectly reasonable in comparison.
Tiny houses are loved specifically BECAUSE they are so versatile in both function AND price. There are workshops out there specifically for people who do not have building experience to help them build their own for minimal cost. There are also companies that will build them to order much like purchasing a custom RV. What you pay is based on both what you want and how much you’re willing to put into it.
If you are “tired of the whining about prices” then don’t read the posts.We are talking about a place to live; our future home. OF COURSE price is going to be a MAJOR consideration and people have a right to express their concerns about pricing; especially when that pricing is unwarranted. I hear builders trying to justify some of the over-the-top pricing when the truth is it’s just market greed. When tiny houses first appeared, Jay Shaffer said he built his THOW for seven thousand dollars. Nowadays, some of these tiny houses are going for one hundred thousand dollars! I get really annoyed by those who criticize modest income people for their pricing concerns. Strikes me like they’ve been listening to too much El Rushbo, and other Right-wing clowns.

OK, I’m closer to 87 than 86, looking for an easily moveable unit not necessarily aimed at jaunting about the country. This cabin speaks to most of my needs, even if I must prussik up the stairs. Just from viewing the photographs, I’d say to those who find the manufactured price too steep, go have a look at what some of the aluminum cans called travel trailers will cost you with the same amenities. I’d happily buy the place now for the discounted price if I wasn’t committed to other arrangements for the next six or seven months.
Of course, there are a couple of features that I’d change:
I agree with the anti-wood countertop folks–such tops, even with marine-grade finishes are incipient Petri dishes for the microbe of choice. Even an old-fashioned tin-covered counter is better, and is probably what I would have the builder install were I to order one of these (cutting board work find on tin tops, and are much easier to sanitize.
And I’m really not thrilled by the sight of a loft bed that apparently depends on a carpet for a mattress. I’d want to know whether there is headroom enough for installing a futon frame that supports a MemoryFoam pad (the current, very satisfactory arrangement I have for supporting an arthritic and much-abused carcase).
How is insurance for these homes handled? I have had problems finding a company/agency who will insure one. Does anyone have any suggestions?
i am wondering why the roof pitch on tiny houses isn’t at the front. It would reduce wind resistance significant, less fuel consumption and easier to tow. However, most of them aren’t designed to be moved often.
Can you imagine trying to drag in groceries every two weeks by climbing in over the tongue? The house is positioned (in reverse) for easy access. Besides, a great many tiny houses are destined for permanent parking and not a life out on the road, so gas consumption really isn’t in the ownership equation.
Sorry Lisa, think you’ve got the wrong end of the handle (as we say in NZ). Think he means why isn’t it angled downwards at the front of the TH so that when towed there is less wind resistance. I’ve thought that many times too. And I’ve thought that a lightweight frame that could attach to the front to create a rounded surface with a Nylon or other synthetic fabric over the frame.
The shape he is talking about (as I read it anyway) can be seen on:
This is just a fencl
Some of us like fencls. I acknowledge your right to call this “…just a fencl…”, but please don’t lump all fencl lovers in one group. Fencl lovers come in all shapes and sizes.
This one is not for me since I’m looking for THOW plans that don’t have lofts. Even so I don’t really like this one but most of my issues are abut personal preference. I think it is clunky and poorly planned in terms of space usage. At 24′ x 8.5′ I think this space could be much more efficiently used. I don’t like all that wood, and I’m not just talking about the counter-tops. I’m not sure why that doesn’t appeal to me but it doesn’t. I also don’t like those little corner porches; I think they are such a waste of space. In addition it seems pretty dark even with the lights on during the day. Moreover I doubt that it is easily movable; I think it would be fairly heavy to tow but if you are planning to park it somewhere or not move it often that probably doesn’t matter much. As for price, I do understand why some would see this as too expensive. It does seem to be the antithesis of the movement’s philosophy of small, affordable housing. I also see that others can afford to have a more liberal approach in terms of costs. However I disagree that it is necessarily a function of “you get what you pay for”. I don’t think that is what is happening with this particular model.
Well first I would make it 28 ft . Next I would put in an RV flush toilet. I would put refrigerator where washer is. where refrigerator is I would put stacking washer/dryer.
Really awesome tiny house on wheels! Beautiful wood, craftsmanship, lay out and great stairs to loft!!
Housing prices all over the country usually reflect the cost of wages for labor for that area. And that contributes to the general cost of living for that area. So just have someone build you one in inexpensive part of the country (depressed)–and then just pick it up. Made to be mobile anyway, right? I would negotiate with some Amish carpenters–give them a complete set of plans–get five or more bids. Ask them for value-engineering ideas. Corian countertops are perfect. No dark wood interiors. Make it light-weight as much as possible–aluminum siding. How about towing to Florida for Winter, then Ohio for Summer?
Aluminium siding is a heat nightmare. Will transfer heat out in winter and inwards in the hot seasons. Only way to stop that would be to use lots (and I mean LOTS) of insulation. Thereby making the walls thicker and the inside of the home smaller. IMHO
Needs a proper thermal break, and insulation, sure–especially up North. What R value do YOU have in mind for your walls? Then we can discuss thickness. I’d like at least R23 in the walls in cold winter weather otherwise your HEATING or COOLING COSTS will be the nightmare. Should be well insulated anyway…but I am not sure if any building codes apply here so…somewhat unregulated industry. Not as bad as corten siding which is used a lot. Many houses have aluminum siding–been around forever. Look at Airstreams, and most mobile homes, campers, all do this…lower weight would save gas and just maybe you can tow it with your pickup. But, I understand that mobile homes depreciate much like cars. Any house on a frame and wheels is considered a mobile home and prone to huge depreciations just like cars. Maybe someone can clarify this. I would just set a prefab on a code-approved foundation and it appreciates just like any other normal home–because it is. Some additional costs (land, foundation) but you can double sf with a basement and a much better roi, and you can get a conventional mortgage. I don’t know about loans on a house on wheels (seeya–catch me if you can). Also the labor cost on a tiny house is usually much higher per/sf for many reasons. All depends how often you’re going to move your “house.” I would just tow my mechanicals only, then couple to a shell that just has a couple of bedrooms, living/dining room. These shells can be pre-fab or stick built. Have one up North and one in the South–migrate twice a year. Envision communities of these shells all over the country…just pick up and go. Just a thought…
Affordable == my pal Mike rented a nice home for him and his son in Eugene, Oregon. US$1300 a month. He stayed six years, or about a hundred thousand dollars.
I built my THOW and toyhauler in 2003 for about US$15,000. I pay fuel and registration and insurance, generally about US$4,000 annually.
Pay upfront, or pay downstream.
I think I could pull together a few dollars for a tiny house and rent a truck to pull it to a site but my biggest obstacle is where to put it? Knowing where I will put it also dictates how I construct it. Off grid? On grid? If I live at an RV park, I have to vacate it for half of the year. This defeats the purpose of having it in the first place. So, is there someone willing to rent a spot on their land for me? So far, no! The legalities for homeowners willing to allow TH on their property is complicated. Sometimes fitting the pieces together is more complicated than just having the finances for the build. Half the problem is making this practical and legal.
I love the concept of tiny homes and have been dreaming about owning one for quite some time. However, with a capital H, I have a huge problem, with a capital H, with designers putting so much emphasis on the three rooms where one would normally spend the least amount of time: bathroom, bedroom and kitchen. Where is the LIVING room? I would have to insist on a larger space where more than one person could comfortably sit without the feeling of waiting for public transportation. To date, I have not been impressed with spatial allotments. Will someone please think outside of the rectangle?
I just like plumbing where I can put it in a lot space and not worry about a composting toilet.
I would not buy a tiny house with a complicated roof like this.
I would instead require a sloping flat roof, just one plane. My reasons:
Save weight, minimize chance of leaks, save cost of building the roof, avoid complex carpentry on the inside, avoid unnecessary top-heaviness, maximize options for skylights or a fire escape, minimize turbulence when towing, send all the snow to the back (or front if you choose), and simplify collection of rain, with one sloping channel to a pipe & barrel.
WHY do manufacturers pay scant attention to these concepts?
I left out a concept that matters to me: maximize interior volume.
Actually a gently sloping gabled roof is slightly more efficient that way,
but I would opt for simplicity at the slight cost of maximum interior height at the low side.
I think it’s a big aesthetic thing, honestly. You make amazing points about the benefits of a single-plane roof, but some people just don’t like the look and are willing to pay more (in the short and long term) for a different design 🙂
Your point is evidently stronger than all of mine. Elegant roofs with as many as eight gables seem to sell and keep on selling. I saw a show about a TH custom built for a man six feet ten inches tall, and it had three dormers on each side, plus the main roof fore and aft of those. Excellent carpenters and roofers can finish the insides and outsides beautifully, but I’ll bet that complex roof added ten grand to the final price.
No way! You are so right that a flat roof is better in a million ways. I was just addressing the “why people do it” haha.
Nice to finally see a bedroom loft tiny house without a window at the head of the bed.
But look closely at the bedroom loft photo. In the current world of “fake”, that photo has been “faked” to make the livable height of the bed-loft look taller. What looks like a floor-bed is actually just a bedspread on the carpet. So, in reality, the head height of the space will be 4″-8″ shorter than the photo suggests. Factor in those overly large wall lights and one is left with a head-banger situation, especially when the mattress is in place.
I do like what the roof design does for headroom in the loft. However, the overall design looks like a Tumbleweed knockoff.
