If you plan to build a tiny house and are looking to avoid all of the expense and hassle of traditional house site development, living green and off the grid may be easier than you think. We know that site work, such as bringing power to a remote areas, well drilling and engineered septic systems, can be cost prohibitive. If you are seeking the comfort and security of a traditional home, rather than the tent like experience of a Yurt, the professionals at the Jamaica Cottage Shop has a 3 room Tiny house that is designed for maximum living on a minimum footprint. Our Eco-friendly post and beam Micro design is built of native lumber and is a complete turn key home with off the grid capability.
Also important is having a plan to heat and cool the building, so you can live in it year round. Electricity is an obvious choice, but can be difficult to tap into in remote areas. Solar power is an option, but can often be as expensive as the cost of the house for adequate power. All of these factors should be budgeted in addition to the cost of the tiny house kit.

If you want complete control over the cost and type of materials you use, consider buying a tiny house plan. Some of the leading tiny house builders, who sell finished homes for $60,000 and more, sell the complete plans for those homes for $500 and less. If you don’t have construction experience, you’ll have a lot to learn as you go, but these plans are designed for DIYers. Some are available—from reputable builders—for as little as $79.

Shower stalls can be expensive if you buy them, I will be using a 350 gallon plastic water tank for my shower. I will cut a door opening using the part cut out as the door. The door will be hinged with stainless steel hinges and door latch. Plumbing will be installed through tank wall, and in the top of tank is an opening where a small ventilation fan will be installed to let out steamy conditions. A drain will be installed in bottom center of tank with hole through nonslip mat. Hand hold rail will be installed for safety. Total cost less than $500.
One of the most intimidating aspects of taking the plunge and moving into a tiny house is how to actually build the tiny house itself. Many people wanting to embrace the tiny house lifestyle are young or maybe have corporate backgrounds, with no building experience to speak of. Buying a house from a builder can be far more expensive than buying plans and building it yourself, but for a first time builder that can be an impossible task, or can lead to costly mistakes and time delays.
