Imagine the joy, pride, and heck yeah bragging rights that come with building your very own tiny house. 

Tiny Heirloom is a custom home building company that embraces the minimal lifestyle without forgoing indulgent features like claw foot tubs, or tricked-out kitchens. Their latest offering, is a tiny house kit called The Perfect Startfor DIYers who want to minimize luxuriously without the custom-built price tag. Packages, which include a tiny house shell start at $15,000.

The tiny house movement is all about downsizing your lifestyle so you can live a more fulfilling life without a lot of debt or a huge mortgage hanging over your head. While you can buy a prefabricated dwelling or a customized small house on wheels, you can save a bundle if you make your tiny house yourself. 

Pre-cut components including floor plates, ridge beam, roof paneling and fasteners for assembling.Standard R-13 insulation.

The Roving is a rustically inspired dwelling with 154 square feet of living space.The Shonsie is a modern cottage with 160 square feet of interior space and a picturesque front…MORE porch.The Degsy is a single-level contemporary home with less than 200 square feet of livable space.

The Countryside (shown above) is 203 square foot rustic abode covered with reclaimed wood.

For the budget minded, 84 Lumber offers two different DIY options.

Shelter in a Day is a 144 square foot structure that you can build in a day. The kit costs $4,999.

A professionally built tiny house on average costs $85,000. While most are tricked out with features that make them worth every penny, most people (myself included) can’t afford them. That’s what makes building it yourself so appealing. If you have expert construction skills, you can create a livable home for a fraction of the cost. 

Have a look at the…MORE following five tiny homes for some examples of how it can be done at prices ranging from an incredible $500 to a little less than $12,000. 

Each kit comes with precision cut components crafted from durable MDF that’s not only waterproof but also rust and termite resistant. All of the pieces snap together using a patented tool free interlocking system. Keep in mind; you’ll need to place this tiny house on a solid foundation like a concrete slab.

The kit for the Apple Blossom cabin shared above starts at $14,900. FYI, Jamaica Cottage Shop offers free shipping across the U.S.A. and Canada.

Cabins packages are available in a wide range of sizes. A basic package for a 12-ft-by-32-ft structure that provides 384 square feet of living space costs less than $6,000. 

During that time, Macy fell in love, got married, gave…MORE birth and adopted a 150-pound Great Dane named Denver. Properly planned and executed, a tiny house can be perfectly comfortable home for a family.  The MIllers, now with two children and the dog, have lived in this home full-time since 2013, 

Originally used for emergency shelters and temporary structures such as auxiliary school classrooms,…MORE recent years have seen Binishells adopted by the tiny-house crowd. Construction costs start at around $3,500.

These tiny dome-shaped homes are called Binishells. They are constructed using a process that is similar to making a papier-mâché balloon base. In this case, concrete is poured over a heavy-duty air pump bladder and a steel rebar framework. Next, the bladder is deflated to reveal a tiny, resilient home that can stand up to extreme conditions such as earthquakes, high winds or even lava flows. 

The door and windows have locks.Paintable waterproofing…MORE for the roof costs extra.Shelters can be enlarged using an extension kit sold in 4-foot increments for $950.

He’s the founder of Pin Up Houses, a company that creates and sells building plans for tiny homes. The Cheryl Cabin shown above is a 107-square foot vacation retreat with a 47-square foot porch. The estimated construction costs for this beauty is $2,900. The plans cost $29, and they come with a money-back guarantee.

One drunken New Year’s Eve, Dave Herrle promised his wife that he would build her a tree house. So he did, and it soon became their second home.  The project cost $4,000 and took six short weeks to construct, though this was possible only because Herrle is a skilled craftsman. Elaborate treehouses for adults are increasingly common as permanent residences for those dedicated to tiny house living.

Rookie building mistakes happen. The thing is, a costly blunder can sabotage your construction budget or worse, torpedo your tiny house dream. But what if there was a do-it-yourself solution that goof proofed the DIY process?

Each basic kit includes everything you need to build a tiny house with an unfinished interior.Insulation, plumbing and electrical packages cost extra.Custom interior options like flooring and built-in storage are also available a la carte.

Every item in the kit from fastening hardware to precut panels are color-coded and labeled clearly for fast assembling.Two adults with beginner-level carpentry skills can put together a basic kit in approximately 40 hours.

Additional house features including windows, doors, siding and a shower cost extra. Financing is…MORE available.

First is the semi-DIY package. 84 Lumber does all of the heavy construction that newbie builders find intimidating like framing the structure. That means you can get crackalackin on the fun DIY stuff, like creating a feature wall. 

But the reality is, creating one from scratch can be a tall order for first-time builders — unless you know about these seven entirely doable and relatively affordable tiny house kits. Each one is designed to empower do-it-yourselfers with little or no construction experience to build their own homes.

Building plans. A trailer for towing.Materials list.Technical support.

The Barn Raiser by Tumbleweed Tiny Houses is a handcrafted tiny house shell on a trailer that can save DIYers more than 200 hours of build time. A no-frills package starts at around $16,000.

Recently, Monarch Tiny Homes debuted their tiny house kit called The Half/Half House. We share all the DIY goodness here. 

If you get stumped during the building process, technical support is available via their toll-free phone line. 

The average cost spent by a do-it-yourselfer building their own tiny dwelling is around $23,000, according to a recent survey. But you can build one for less–a lot less.

Wouldn’t it be convenient if you could buy a tiny house kit at your local hardware store? Well, you can, if you live near 84 Lumber. The national home improvement retailer recently launched a line of tiny houses on wheels that you could either build yourself or buy move-in ready. Currently, four models are available:

Either a Cypress, Elm, Linden or Mica tiny house shell placed on a trailer.Fully insulated subfloor.Stick built walls with a vapor barrier.Stick built roof with both rain and ice shield.

Dave’s tiny house is nestled on a wooded hillside. The home features a raised deck…MORE overlooking the woods. Low-maintenance, natural wood siding covers the home, with aluminum roofing completing the cabin-like mood.  Herrle says, “It is the ultimate getaway that fuels our creativity.”

Finally, here is a fantastic custom tiny home built by Scott Brooks for a mere $500. Although it’s only 83 square feet, it is remarkably cozy and comfortable. To slash building costs, he constructed this cozy Pacific Northwest abode out of salvaged materials, such as the large reclaimed picture window looking out on the Northwest forest. Currently, Brooks is working on another residence, a cabin in Shaw, Washington. We cannot wait to see what he builds next.

Jamaica Cottage Shop created a line of cottage and cabin kits that their founder Domenic Mangano says anyone who can use a hammer can put together. Even better, each DIY package is made to order so you can customize your future dwelling based on your needs and budget.

The second option is the build your own package. Prices start at $6,884, and kits come with the following:

A tiny house shell placed on a custom trailer. If you’re not in the know, a “shell” is a home with a finished exterior and an unfinished interior. This one comes equipped with windows, exterior doors, and a shower.

The architectural blueprints including a materials list for finishing touches you can DIY. So that you know, all materials are available at 84 Lumber. 

Just because you’re downsizing, doesn’t mean you can’t live luxuriously large with a small footprint.

The price for a move-in ready dwelling starts at around $50,000.

Macy Miller purchased an old recreational vehicle for $500 and then spent the following two years transforming it into the beautiful 196 square foot home shown above. Most of the home is made of upcycled materials. For instance, the siding incorporates wood from upcycled shipping pallets. The house is also loaded with resource-saving features, such as a composting toilet. For comfort, the tiny abode is tricked out with radiant floor heating.
