How about building your own tiny home for less than $5,000

Living in a tiny home comes with a number of benefits, which is why it is no longer surprising that more people are opting to live in them. The most obvious advantage of having one is the financial gains that it provides – you save up on a mortgage, rent, and other costs that come with living in a traditional house.

Being a tiny home owner also gives you mobility, granting you the freedom to pack up and transfer it elsewhere if you wish for a change in environment.

The Lillevilla Escape is an example of a tiny home in a box that you can easily build, with help, in one day.

This tiny home which has one main room measures about 113 square feet and weighs at over 3,000 pounds.

It is sold in Amazon by tiny home manufacturer Lillevilla for around $4,200 and takes approximately a month to ship. The shipping cost is something you won’t have to worry about, as it is already included in the price of the house.

Do it yourself step-by-step instructions come with the kit, and building the tiny home would take about 6 hours for two adults. You can do it yourself, however, doing so would take longer and is not safe.

Only minimal and basic tools are required for construction of the house. For a fee, Lillevilla USA can also install the cabin for you.

The manufacturers also recommend the installation of drywall and insulation for home builders that intend to live in the tiny home year round.

If you are thinking that a tiny home equals a cramped space, think again! Take a look inside this cabin and you will be amazed at how extremely cozy it is – it can even fit a whole living room set.

As for the cooking space, there are adjustments that need to be made as the area might be a bit sparse. But as every tiny home owner should know, things are achievable with a little bit of resourcefulness plus the right equipment.

One of the perks of having a tiny home is that it has a sentimental feel attached to it, especially when you assembled the house yourself.

To make the space more inviting, you may add personal touches such as your choice of decor, additional lighting, and rugs to soften the hardwood floor.

The tiny home can also serve as a guest cottage, workshop, home office, or any other space that would suit your needs. You may also add a porch if you want an open area perfect for entertaining visitors or just relaxing while taking in the fresh air and the sun.
