Tiny houses built on trailers

You've probably heard of Jay Shafer before who helps bring these little houses to you by living in several of them over the years and building more than 12 himself.Tumbleweed Tiny House

If you wanted to buy one of these brand new it would run you around $45,000 and it would come fully equipped with almost everything you need. This includes plenty of clever storage throughout the tiny space.

If you want to build it yourself it will only cost you $20,000 and some have done it for less by using reclaimed materials.

Just be sure to either do a lot of planning and designing or use Tumbleweed's professional building plans. The initial cost might seem a little high, but you'll find them super helpful.

Even if you just end up hiring a contractor to do the work. Learn more about these awesome little homes in our tiny house section.
