20K Tiny House: How She Built a DIY Tiny Home From Scratch
Jessica, an attorney from Austin, Texas, built a 20k tiny house by putting in three years of sweat equity herself and receiving help from her dad along the way. While the original plan was for her to build a tiny house all her own, she fell in love shortly thereafter and has been living in the space with her girlfriend Bernadette ever since.
Wondering how much it costs to build a tiny house like the one you see here? Jessica shows us how anyone can build a tiny house for under 20k with a little elbow grease and some creative thinking.
At only 24 feet long, 8½ feet wide, and 13 feet long, this couple’s home has more character and charm than one might originally think.
The exterior of the home has a very modern look with white siding and a black metal roof, a green front door, a large wooden porch, and string lights hanging down. Plus, it’s parked next to a large poured patio that’s perfect for entertaining and offers an abundance of seating options.
Building a tiny house from scratch may have taken Jessica some time to complete, but stepping into the home makes it all feel worth it in the end.
With a white subway tile and dark grout backsplash, wooden countertops, and a large under-mount sink, the kitchen has plenty of space to work in and cook up a decent meal.
The seating area has space to lounge in comfort and watch tv. The bathroom is large enough for a full-size shower and bath, vanity, sink, and toilet along with some hanging basket storage. And there’s a loft bedroom with vaulted ceilings.
The original plan was to live in this 20k tiny house for a decade or more, so Jessica included full-size appliances as well.
