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:)
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.

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.
We are the liberals your momma warned you about!!!! USADreamBuilder.com
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!
