Most of these are great and I'm thinking about building one of these small home types, but number 5 is absolutely STUPID! $95,000 to build this house?!?!?! You kidding me?! I live in a small town called Galesburg, MI and you can find a 3 bedroom FULL SIZE HOUSE with a backyard and everything in this small great little neighborhood that is right in the middle of 2 big cities for just over 100K! lol

I thought the nicest house on Tiny House Listings wasn't featured. It is a charming Craftsman style that is simply gorgeous! http://tinyhouselistings.com/charming-tiny-house-for-sale/
 I would LOVE to live in a little house like this that feels so BIG inside!

I bought a 450 sf building at a sealed bid sale. Paid $1.50 (cash) for it. After the move and

remodel which cost about $25000 my wife and I lived in it for over 6 years and loved it. 

The remodel could have been done at a lower cost but we indulged in some nice things. 

We have since "upgraded" to a much larger condo (but not because we grew tired of the

mini home).  We now rent the mini home for $550 per month.  (A home of around 1000 sf would rent for about $650 in our area).  I guess because it is so unique we always have many inquires and have no trouble finding a tenant.  We could see ourselves going back to our mini home again someday. It was a good 6 years.  I could have bought it for 75 cents.  Ours was the only bid. LOL

I am also glad to see the trend changing to Less is More.  I have been downsizing for years now and  it feels awesome.  It's not as dumb as it seems esp when we are trying to leave a smaller footprint on our land....while we still call it ours! 


Hey to you Big guy:), if you have the right woman sweetie, the space doesn't  matter too much right:). Besides, we aren't locked into these sizes, its just a general idea, and could be added onto,.  But still, a great idea and when we spend less on housing then we can spend more on travel, fun, savings, etc. 


There are thousands and thousands....look at vrbo.com too, it shows rentals all over the country to try out before you buy.  Lots of fun looking at all the styles and vacation ideas too:)

worked government related jobs for 33 years, and was never allowed to contribute to soc security because we paid into our retirerment fund so that it would be fully funded.

Can anyone explain why teachers in Alaska could not draw their full teacher retirement and also their full social security? Two years ago, everyone in my district had to sign a statement that they understood that if they drew their teacher retirement, they could only draw 1/3 of their social security benefits. That also means that if they are married and their spouse draws more social security, then if he / she passes, they could only draw 1/3 of half of what he would have. It is called "double dipping".
Although I didn't feel it was fair, we were not given a chance to refuse. We were required to sign that we had read the notice.  Perhaps someone can shed a light on the subject.

Some people just don't want to hassle with a big house. Why buy a big house when there just two of you or one? If I didn't have my growing family, I'd seriously consider buying something like this. easy to maintain, and saves a ton on bills. Do your research before you make stupid comments like most people have been making on here. My favorite was the Painted Lady. When someone is hardly ever home, why have a big house when you really don't need it? Waste of time, money, and energy, And if you go with the right materials, you're good to go. Get the facts people before you open your big mouths.

$90,000 for the Rancher? I guess it costs extra to have a rusty tin roof and peeling paint.

People are just trying to keep up their own homes & not looking for some new shack to buy or live in. A lot of people have had drastic credit scores lowered which should be looked into by proper authorities. Since 2008 there are more people who can't refinance, get a loan, buy a shack such as these goofy looking one car garage homes. This is sickening to show these little doll houses. Neighborhoods need money to maintain their homes & haven't got it because they are paying off or trying to pay off debts preceding 2008. Banks are still playing games with people's lives. Why not help the millions trying to keep what they got & bring back nice neighborhoods where the Middle & Poor live among boarded up homes & unkept properties.

I wish they would show the insides of these homes.

ninety five grand


I'm a builder. The prices "Tiny Texas Houses" are posting are off the wall.

These people are more than likely using sub standard building practices, Inferior lumber and building materials.


PS: Look at their other buildings.

I have visited the sight where they build the Texas Tiny Houses. They are way over priced but very well insulated. They would work well for someone living alone. We have a deck in our back yard with a roof over it that we don't use anymore so we decided to inclose it to look like one of those and use it as a green house.We are using all recycled materials.It is looking really cute.They would be great for a grandparent or older single  adult child to live in in your back yard.I am sure a person could build one for about a thousand dollars or less with recycled materials.


Great for a girls tea party or boys club house. Bad for a big guy,

Really, who could honestly live in these spaces. They would work for a hunting or fishing cabin but to live in, I enjoy my space to much.

Well it might work for me in the back country,  but like most Americans, I'd have to rent a 40x40 storage unit for all the crap I've accumulated in life. LOL And I'd love the lower maintenance, cleaning costs and property taxes!
