Have we told you lately how much we lurve Tumbleweed's tiny homes? In case you haven't had a chance to check them out, here are 7 of the latest in their growing line of awesome and small buildings that have a negligible footprint. Each lilliputian house has its own special character but they can all be custom designed with add-ons to suit your needs. And if you aren't a fan of red tape, this news will definitely get your attention: all of the structures featured here are smaller than 120 square feet, dodging the permitting requirements of most municipalities. Step in for a closer look at these seven wonderful, affordable mini-houses.
The Anderjack home has 2 columns flanking either end of its entrance that are supported with a nice-sized purlin, eave and window trim. The kit costs $12,999 and assembled, it costs $14,999. The price includes concrete footings, but this can be changed depending on how much you don’t love concrete!
The beautiful Beavan home costs the same as the Anderjack and also has columns on either side of the entrance. The exterior is 7 x 16 feet, not including the porch which adds an addition 2 feet. The interior can be managed however you like, but Tumbleweed recommends using their mini homes as a backyard bedroom, office, yoga retreat, or office studio.
The Gifford home has massive purlins that support a front gable and porch. The kit costs $11,999 and the base and assembly pushes the price to $13,999. Given that it’s under 120 square feet, it’s unlikely your municipality will require you to purchase a permit to install it, but it’s a good idea to check first!
The stamper home is a little larger at 107 square feet and features a alcove in the main room and 3 windows. Additional windows can be added for a sum, and the house costs $16,599 assembled. The exterior dimensions are 7 x 18 feet and the porch adds an additional 1 foot.
The Weller home featured in Colorado has a distinctive gable offset over the front door which also generates a little extra loft space. It comes with an insulated fir floor and knotty pine tounge and interior grove siding can be added for $1,599.
The Zinn house featured here with a pile of roses in the front yard is in some ways the most quaint of them all – probably because of its endearing paint job. This house has an end gable design and a front door on its long side. It also comes with two windows and massive purlins supported by an awning and broad eves. The Zinn costs $13,999 with foundations and assembly.
We left the best for last! The Walden is a little different than the rest of Tumbleweed’s tiny houses. Set on a 7 x 18 utility trailer, it comes ready made at $49,997 or you can put it together yourself for $21, 250. Unlike many of the homes, it has vaulted ceilings, a full shower and a large kitchen. It also comes with a fireplace! Go to Tumbleweed’s website to learn more – and start dreaming about putting together your very own tiny home.
