This is the newest version of the 36′ Bunkhouse built by Indigo River Tiny Homes which has not one, not two but THREE bedrooms that you can stand in. Pretty remarkable.
It’s a great layout for a family, with a bottom-floor bedroom that can be completely closed-off for sleeping kids. Each bedroom has a wardrobe for storage, and the bathroom even includes a tub (and lovely tilework). What do you think?

Love all the detail and everything about this Tiny House except where the living room might be…??
The colors, fit and finish perfectly. Not really a seniors place but great for a family. Love the color coordination and choices, it’s seashore every day. When I get a spare $100K they can do my “C” series seniors 1.5 bath unit as proof of concept. The wardrobes really sing in a small home being so flexible. I plan three about this size on casters for most of my designs as I am using no stairs or lofted spaces. Need an entry closet? Just wheel a unit to the front door area…
So tell me… what is a seniors colour? I didn’t know that they were segregated by age… roflmao
Personally, I dislike the green cabinets etc. But that’s just me. Preferences… nothing more, nothing less.
Very nice indeed but too bad these tiny homes have gotten so expensive. I went to their website to build one for me and see how much it would cost me. I chose the 28′ feet 8′ wide and selected almost every standard item to keep the cost low even though some of the standard items are the cheapest option and not of my liking, most of the nicer additions are options and very costly. I ended up with a $148,000 tag and left some things out I want (like a desk or drop down table) because the price for just that (IMO) is not justifiable. There are items there like ceiling fans and sconces that I can get for half the price. I wish they would allow the consumer to buy the items and deliver them for installation during the built. If this was allow I would be ordering one right now. And I know what some will say, COVID, Supply chain issues, labor shortages – I get but still some of the options are way overpriced. I am disappointed.
Costs aren’t just for materials, even for a basic unit price would include the Ceiling Fan Unit, Labor, Mount, Downrod, Wiring (If needed, which can add the cost of a licensed electrician). So average Cost per Fan typically ends up being between $542.42 to $901.69. That’s up from a few years ago when it was between $150 to $350, for an idea how much construction costs are up and not just in tiny houses, as those are industry standard numbers.
And that’s before you get into multiple units or higher end options like Dual Oscillating Ceiling Fans that depending on features and design can go up to over $2000 just for the fan.
While there’s also shipping costs, buying locally isn’t the same as having it shipped anymore. Especially for larger items there can be a very hefty shipping fee that can cost you more than the item… Even Amazon is hitting sellers with a 5% price hike due to inflation and rising gas costs, and that’s of course going to get passed along to the consumers. Before then adding supply chain issues as you can also be hit with a premium to get hard to find items to you…
But question for you, their list shows the basic ceiling fan as included. So $0… How do you figure that’s twice the price if you were choosing the standard/basic options?
Went through their options and the only way to get it to $148,000 was to choose multiple upgrades. Otherwise it stays at $100,045 with the standard/basic options that are included in the price. Though, there is a “no loft” option that would reduce it by $5,350 to get it under $100,000…
Also, only the options that said (Required) did you actually have to choose…
So, did you consider you could have certain options not included to install your own? Or even that they have a shell option so you can just do the interior yourself for a much reduced price?
In a custom build you can just have them wire it and then you only have to install the fan…
Or look for a builder that does standard models instead of custom, as custom will cost more… Incredible Tiny Homes, for example has largely given up custom and is now pushing a line of standard model options, maybe check them out if you don’t want to pay what custom costs but still have the builder do everything…
Or wait until the economy gets more sane… May take awhile, as we’re likely to go through a recession before that happens, but eventually…
Like I said, I completely understand all of that but it would be nice if the customer was allowed to chose cheaper options or their choosing. For example: There is sealing fan I like that costs $95. I would rather buy a couple and provide it to the builder which could potentially allow me to then choose some of my must haves. Here is another example, there is a builder I liked near my home, I contacted them and asked if I could have a composting toilet instead or regular flush and they said yes. However, it would cost me more. I explained that I won the toilet at a Tiny House event and it has never been used or even opened. The box is still sealed. I was willing to drive up and bring it to them for installation and they said no. The same happened with a unopened convection oven I have. They were not willing to do it and said all items have to be chosen from their inventory. So…I had to walk away.
Well, it’s more complicated than that… While you can use a builders allowance, this is basically what you’re referring to, to your advantage to save on a build. It can easily be done wrong and builder allowances can lead to delays, conflicts and other problems that can skyrocket the costs.
Mind, they’re basically tailoring the build to specific standards and getting everything to fit like a glove where every inch is being accounted for to make the entire layout work and integrate everything… So anything you bring in will be a new variable that can require making up to major changes to the layout, making them do more work, adding costly delays to production, and adding potential liabilities if anything goes wrong and they then have to deal with fixing the problem to finish the home.
Appliances aren’t all the exact same size, specifications, hardware, etc. and many can require to be installed in a specific way to get warranty from the manufacturer, which can make some much harder to install than others. The builder’s own insurance may not cover a product that isn’t on the approved list as well, posing increased liability for the builder… All while getting in the way of production, and time cost money to a builder…
Mind, you would not be the only customer, and there’s typically a waiting list already. So they also want to be able to finish in a predictable time frame to get the homes to their customers and every delay adds to how long it takes to get to the next name on the list… Add, the sky high demand right now has many builders with jobs already booked for the next 2 years that they have to get through and complete…
So that’s not as simple an ask as you may be thinking. There are builders who will allow you to have such Allowances, though, but they’ll be usually bigger companies that can handle the overhead it may cause. Or a full custom builder who will cost more up front but will be able to tailor every detail of the build to how you want it done and allow you to trade that control for some cost savings with the Allowances…
Otherwise, consider the shell or a more basic build you can finish yourself… Since, you won’t have to deal with everything the builder does and are thus more free to just do it…
You make very good points but at the end of the day I have a budget and have no choice but to make it work for me without going over. I like their designs and homes, and there is always a way to work with the client if they chose to. My other option is to buy with the items in my must have list and switch simple things like light fixtures, etc. At the end of the day, I will get what I want based on what I can afford but will not compromise, especially when spending over $100k.
But it’s not really a choice the builder can always make when doing so can be the difference between staying in business and going out of business. End of the day, the business has to be sustainable and they have to consider what’s realistic for their budget as well…
If that means you have to look elsewhere then that’s what you have to do and thus why I gave you some alternatives to consider because it works both ways, it’s not just up to builder to make it work.
Just like shopping for anything else, there’s lots to consider because not all builders are set up to provide the same things or cater to the same range of needs as there’s different builders optimized to do different things and will provide different range of options and services.
There’s budget builders like Incredible Tiny Homes, there’s full custom builders like Movable Roots Tiny Home Builders, there’s builders who fall in-between with standard model builds that they can provide a level of customization to, there’s builders who only do standard models, there’s builders who cater to specific needs like sustainability and only using reclaimed materials, there’s everything from some person with trade skills who decided to build homes on their own to large corporations that operates nationally or even internationally, and there’s always DIY, etc… All catering to different range of products, options, and details…
So, if one doesn’t fit what you want to do then just keep looking but also keep in mind the trade offs each may deal with to be sure that’s what you really want to do and is actually giving you the benefits you think it will…
