by Simplify

Bre and Destiny are homeowners who have been living tiny for quite some time. And they believe in their smart investment so much, they’re willing to walk others through the process by breaking down the tiny home costs they’ve incurred.

Saving for a tiny home

How much do tiny homes cost generally speaking? That depends on a variety of factors, of course, but there are many ways to lower the price you pay out of pocket. And financing a tiny home is also possible.

Many people can’t help but wonder, how do tiny homes help save money? And the answer is pretty simple when you think about it. With a tiny home, you don’t have to pay for way more space, furniture, and personal items than you actually need. It’s not just the cost of building materials themselves that you save, but the cost of furnishings and other belongings that go into your home as well.

When it comes to tiny home financing, the first step is to come up with a reasonable budget. For Bre and Destiny, that came out to be around $90k. And since Bre and Destiny are young and in entry-level jobs, this is still a lot of money for them but at least they are paying into a home they can keep. And they can even move the home to a new location at any time making the tiny home cost they spent even smarter.

But it isn’t all about the cost for Bre and Destiny. They have done a great job making this tiny house their home.

When you step inside, you’ll notice lots of bright white, wood, and black metal accents that give the space a cool, modern vibe. And with a few pops of color, the tiny home cost is the last thing you think about while you’re there.
