Catch another small house construction story early in the process.
“We are currently building a small 680 square foot house in our small town of Point Roberts, Washington. The construction budget is $55,000. You can see the plans and join our blog or Pinterest boards for photo & video updates.”
This isn’t tiny but nice and small, but seems like a very livable size for this small family.
“Portland, Oregon-based interior designer Jessica Helgerson has been living, for the past year, “rather experimentally in a 540-square-foot cottage on five acres of farmland.” She and her family raise chickens, turkeys, bees, and grow their own food.”
One of my new Facebook readers shared this with me. It’s the story of a gal named Heather and her adventure building her own 14′ by 24′ home. She’s posted many photos of the process including this one of her after a day of playing with plaster.
I really like the simple design of this small house. In fact it looks similar to the 12×24 house I designed. Kathi’s house is 12×20 and has 12-foot walls. Back in 2007 it took 11 days and cost $8,000 to complete the basic enclosed structure. This home is located in Georgia.
This small house concept has an interesting survivalist spin. It’s a simple hybrid shipping container home that is part container and part octagonal central unit. It’s flexible and can be expanded to meet the needs of multiple residents or kept small.
This is a newcomer to the small green home landscape. It’s a 200 square foot home that is carefully designed to provide space for a family of four. I like the concept and am looking forward to seeing it become a reality.
This is little adobe house in northern New Mexico is a bit bigger than tiny at 700 square feet; but I have a special place in my heart for nice little adobe homes so I wanted to be sure to share it with you this week.
