    I can appreciate how awesome this tiny home is. The problem I see is the hefty price tag. Many people resort to tiny living – not just to go green and downsize – but for economic reasons as well. If people are going to sell these tiny homes for (sometimes) more than a 1200-1500sq. ft. house – where’s the economic value it that? You are still going to have a mortgage payment.

      Hey Chrystal. Tiny house prices are all over the map, ranging from a couple thousand to ones even more expensive than this which makes tiny houses attainable for almost any budget. The upfront cost of a tiny house is only the very beginning of your savings. Utilities and the time saved from keeping up a tiny house are others, with lots more. Here is a list of 10 reasons why to buy a tiny house. http://tinyhouselistings.com/10-reasons-to-buy-a-tiny-house/

    Thanks! I’m the builder! One of the reasons it is so expensive is as a result of building the tiny house up north (northern Canada, near Alaska). We don’t necessarily have affordable building materials as readily available to us up here, and because of the harsh winter climate, I had to use specialized building products to insulate to such high standards. I estimate that if it was built in Southern Canada it could be built for about 20% less, and with more salvaged materials (even harder to find up here!) it could be built for an even lower price. Just to give you an idea typical new construction here is around $250/ft2 (that’s with vinyl siding etc..) It can run as high as $450-$500/ft2 for the higher end construction. A 50′ x 100′ lot (a gravel pad basically) can cost $250,000.

    Still I recognize that it is prohibitively expensive (though the asking price still doesn’t reflect labor costs) and one of the next cabins I hope to build – version.simple, I hope to be able to sell for $20,000. It is going to be much more basic, but also much more accessible in terms of cost for people.

    These details will all be up on the website which should be launched soon!

    Cheers!

    Love that design. I agree with the other poster one of the best designs I have seen. I’ve been looking for a while but they are all so very far away from me here in CT.

    AWEsome!! I live in the west Texas area, so I wouldn’t need the extreme components of a structure built in an area near Alaska. Did you build this based off of a set of plans, or just as your mind created it. Either way, I love it. It is one of the most unique and outside of the box creations that I’ve seen. I have a 25′ flatbed trailer that is not being used, nor has it been for sometime, and this looks like a perfect application for it. I would have to tweak the design based off of the different dimensions of my trailer, but that shouldn’t be that hard. If there were a set of plans, what would they run for??? Thanks for posting.

    Others think the habvit is more likely connected to theiur checking the
    ground for the scent of its enemies, since the dog has itss
    nose to the ground during the turning around. Go ahead.
    s : This is thee scent your pup will leave behind.

    Hi Laird…..still the best looking and (probably) built little house ever. For the Texas guy: we would NEED the insulation etc of this northern home to keep us cool in the summer!
    I am from Austin and lived in Maine most of my adult life…this well bult little jewel is what we southerners must have to combat heat and humidity.
