Tiny House On 1/2 Acre City Lot. NEW Construction!

MinotTiny House in Minot NDI'm working with a Contractor that purchased a lot at the right price but wasn't sure what to build on it because it's a bit of peculiar neighborhood. It's a big lot, 1/2 acre, but it's not the right spot to build a big fancy home on in Minot. Another agent showed her client the lot and said he is a minimalist and was interested in building a "Tiny House" on it. We said "We can do that" but then weMinot Tiny Home Interior never heard from them again. HOWEVER, the contractor loved the idea and said we need to go ahead with this and he would build a spec Tiny House. Interior of Tiny HouseThe pictures in this post are provided by PAD Tiny Houses and you can see more if you Google them. The square footage of the house is 136sq' not counting the loft area. Our Tiny House will have a 6' crawl space Tiny House Bob Timm Alliance REunder the house assessable through a hatch in the floor for ample storage. ALL this for just $79,900! That's a Brand New stick built home on 1/2 an acre lot for just $79,900.

What an incredible deal! MMLS#172743

Good morning Bob - I find the Tiny house very interesting.  I have set to see one up close.

The ones I saw set up at the State Fair this year were very unimpressive Grant Schneider but this one is really a thing of beauty with good functionality. Maybe you can drop by this coming summer and see it?

I like the concept ... and can see where, in the right place and in the correct circumstances, tiny homes could be the perfect answer for someone, Bob "RealMan" Timm.  I could see them being a great alternative housing for aging parents, etc.  I'm hoping that municipalities in our area will consider allowing for them in the future, but it will certainly take some new thinking regarding building rules/regulations .... and placement.

Great post ...

Thanks Gene Mundt, IL/WI Mortgage Originator - FHA/VA/Conv/Jumbo/Portfolio/Refi with my daughter heading off to college next year I am already looking for a lot near the campus she wants to attend to build on. I'm sure when she is done with it another parent would purchase it for their student. No big college parties at this house!

I love it.  I'm pretty sure I would be as happy as a bug in a rug in that place, Bob!

Tiny house, tiny price huh Bob. These types of homes sure are popular these days. I saw last night on the news where a couple drove over a thousand miles to give their tiny house to a couple who lost everything in the wake of Hurricane Maria.

That's one of the cool things about them Debe Maxwell, CRS is they are easy moved and in fact I saw on the website that sells the plans for this one that many are built onto trailers.

Tiny houses are an interesting trend Bob "RealMan" Timm .  I couldn't live in one...but they aren't meant for everyone!
