Cost of construction is one of the most common questions on our blog, and a big concern for do-it-yourselfers who want to build their own sustainable home. This video breaks down the cost of a DIY project on a custom 24 foot off-grid tiny house.
The total cost of everything including the trailer, license, building materials, appliances and tools came to just under $35,000. Derek admits the cost is a little on the high side because they didn’t skimp. It’s not dirt cheap but they got the home of their dreams just the way they wanted. This included a $5,500 kitchen as the main expense. It took about 6 months to build, working 3-4 days a week. The cost of tiny houses from tiny home companies is often over $50,000.
