$5k Tiny Cabin on a Foundation: Mortgage-free Living!













Many times we get discouraged with the pricing found for tiny houses. In most cases they end up in the $20,000 to $50,000 range and they’re even smaller than this house. Most of it is due to the cost of materials including the trailer, labor, and high end materials used to build. But if building a humble home is your main goal.. So you can start living the mortgage-free lifestyle, I’d recommend to look here. This project only ran about $5,000 according to the owner/builder and it serves perfectly as a small cabin that gives you what we all want… freedom!

It took the owner 6 months to build using free time on the weekends. It was done back in 2005.

“Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you.” ~Carl Sandburg
