DIY Tiny Cabin with Deck: Less than $20k to Build?

There’s something so inspiring to me about tiny cabins like this. First is the fact that you can easily build something like this yourself pretty easily and affordably as long as you have the land already. Depending on where you get your materials and if you do the labor yourself, something like this could cost you way under $20,000. If you happen to get your appliances, windows, doors and other things like that used or recycled you can really bring the price of your build down. How much do you think it would cost you to build a cabin like this yourself?

  1. This is a great little cabin, but… I think you’re waaay off with regard to the price to build it. Everything from the radially-arrayed panels for that “sunburst effect” on the front, to the diagonal clerestory window between the two rooflines, to the shape of the roofs themselves – all of this is custom work, special angles and cuts, that requires much more skill and time and patience (each of which means money) than most do-it-yourselfers would be able to provide. Being a 2+ bedroom unit like this, I can’t imagine it coming in at under $50k.
