true7005: I don;t know the specifics of these BUT I think, like many, that this is a good option. My problem/ worry is the exterior material and flooring these are made of. If its pressure treated in any kind of way its a no go. those chemicals aren't something you would want to be living in imho, not when you are heating etc. If they aren't made with PT exterior then all is well, if so then I would be pulling that stuff off the side and putting a layer of thin plywood, one way vapor barrier, seal both sides of the exterior then put it back on. Just be aware of the details, ALL details when you make a decision please, for your own safety.
SunriseBoy: Here in 'the best country in the world' (ha!) that same unit would cost around 85-95 thousand!
Treenet: I have been reading about Tiny Houses for some time. There was a documentary on NetFlix as well. Very Interesting. After reading the many comments here on the subject I am quite surprised there has been no discussion on using multiple tiny homes to create whatever space requirements might be required. All it takes is a good plan for connecting each home in a way that minimizes alterations. Start with one and add others as needed. Sky is the limit.
Anyone wanting to live in a tiny home would do well to learn some basic construction techniques in order to do some, if not all, of the construction themselves. After all, saving money is the point here.That said, I have to agree that $10,000 could go a long way towards completing a home rather than just an exterior shell.
MR, BOSTON: you forgot to put a header on the window, If someone climbs through that window your gona have a problem
Oni EL'AMIN: I love this wow..
Jordan Kaufman: I want a smaller version.... Like 10' X 12' external measurements, preferrably on wheels. Anyone know where I can get that pre-built? We are in Nevada.
treehouseinparadise: Great ideas for starter structures. It's time that we went back to a simpler way and smaller foot print. If you get one, continue with the videos and let us in on the process. Good luck. Love it.
Sam Short: I lived in a 10x50 mobile home for a short time and it was adequate. This is pretty close in size and could probably be ordered without the porch to give a little more useful square footage. Definately doable as a basic living structure but watch out for the zoning rules even out in rural areas.
Joanna HillsMo: I have a Derksen 12x32 I am going to move into on my land. Building $7,000, Costs for bathroom, kitchen, wall size southern windows, wiring, insulation, paneling, $4,875, Off grid appliances, fridge, stove, LED lighting $3865, 6 panel solar array and batteries $5675, Wind Turbine $1675, 60' tower for TV $1175. Now the rest of the world can kiss my ass. Oh, I am growing, producing most of my own food.
christar999: Where in America are you legally allowed to live in a place like this? Example areas please. I am very interested. Thanks!
Rickugg: He thinks its a great deal, its only the beginning. You need land, well, septic, kitchen, bath room, insulation, wiring, sheet rock, lights, Buy an older home on a lot and fix it up and you have a real house that can be sold if you want to move.
Joseph Atnip: My apartment is all electric with a heat pump unit like you see in motel and I live in Missouri .it would work grate in this ...the bill can be as low as 23 bucks a month with just lights and TV water heater and fan computer no ac or heat ....and up to at most 68 bucks running everything but rent is only 379 and 39 for internet I'm trying to live as cheap as I can
Joseph Atnip: The inside of my apartment is 11.6x25 and that's with the bathroom and everything .....and I sleep on a Murphy bed
Brandon Dietz: I want to live in one after i get out of college, until i get out of school debt and build a house. my dad had a cabin like this and it didnt cost him a lot of money to put in electrical, insulation, sheet rock and two ceiling fans. it wouldn't cost a lot to cool it, one window unit should work. you can take one and make it liveable on a cheap budget. you don't need the fancy thick sheetrock, cheap crap thats in mobile homes will work. a 12x30 cabin like this would only cost about $350 to insulate right. according to home depot website.
Charlissa Van Louvender: Can you buy land and put this on and turn it into a house or is there laws that make it that you cant i live in PA where would I find something like this what are these places called?
beemerupscottie: Can you pop in more windows ? like up stairs on the ends
youkronify: theres a 16 x 36 with full legth so no porch and two full lofts for not even 9
ToniMattTony: I love it.
laptopcommando: There's no reason why you couldn't put up some insulation and cover it with some inexpensive wall board. Interior walls could easily be made. Add some solar power gear, a composting toilet, a propane stove, and maybe a shower stall...that could make a REALLY nice home for less than what my car cost!
Blue Orb Diving: Going small...just have to decide when and where!
