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.
Trailer Made’s custom tiny house trailers are available in lengths from 12′ to 44′. With tandem and triple axel foundations, these trailers come in standard or wide configurations. These trailers are designed with safety in mind and feature a tube steel construction and electric brakes on every wheel. Trailer Made has also stopped using scissor jacks due to their failure rate.
The kits range from small sheds, to full blown tiny houses and cottages. They are all created in Vermont from locally sourced rough-hewn lumbers, including hemlock and white pine. Each piece in the kit is color-coded and labeled, and includes the assembly hardware needed to build the structure. Very detailed assembly instructions make it easy for even novice builders to see exactly how to build a tiny house.
