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.

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.
