THE owner of a tiny house has shared how she built it for just $35,000 — and the only downside she found.
Precious Price built the house in the backyard of the larger house she had already bought.
The home is located in Atlanta, Georgia and looks incredibly spacious inside.
She started construction in October 2020 and finished it in March 2021.
Precious added a slew of windows to give the space a “light, airy, and open” feel.
“You don’t feel like you’re in a shed, you actually feel like you’re in a house,” she said in a video.
It doesn’t look like you’re in a shed either.
The house has a full bathroom and a small kitchen with a large sink and refrigerator.
The only thing Precious doesn’t like about the tiny house is the attic, which is a bit cramped.
As she climbed a ladder to her bed, she said the attic-to-ceiling height was a little too low and all she could do there was “lie down and sleep.”
After moving into the tiny house, she decided to rent out the larger house on the property as an additional source of income.
Because she travels so much for work, she was able to rent out the tiny house and made $32,000 back.
She uses those funds to pay the $1,200 mortgage on the tiny house.
If you dream of owning a tiny house and it’s way beyond your budget, you’ll be happy to know that there are more affordable options.
A TikToker known as Modern Nomad (@amodernnomad) documented how he plans to turn a $3,500 tuff shed into a tiny house.
The shed was delivered directly to his property already assembled.
He said he could live in it immediately if he had to, but he has plans to polish it up.
It is a 10 x 12 loft mini barn with a large living area and two loft areas on either side.
He plans to put in his own windows, set up proper power and plumbing, and add a folding staircase to access the attic.
Another option for a prefabricated tiny home, this $7,700 cabin is perfect for warmer climates.
