The $22,000 (Tiny) Dream Home

Screen Shot 2014-12-18 at 8.42.43 AM

“It only cost the Morrisons $22,000 to build their dream home. They now live mortgage-free, which has improved the quality of their life and the closeness of their marriage. Thanks to a brilliant design, this 207 sq. ft. space feels much bigger on the inside. The Morrisons have everything they need. There’s a spacious kitchen, with an oven, fridge, and sink. Definitely no lack of counter and shelf space here! They also included a reading area and an office desk that doubles as a dining table. Under the stairs to the loft is a big ‘closet.’ Not a single inch is wasted.”

  2. That is actually quite expensive at $160 per square foot, for the building only not the land it sits on, and higher than the median cost per square foot ($120) which includes the property the housing is on. That number is skewed by high urban housing costs, if you are living rural like they are you should likely be in the $80/sqft range with land.
