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.
