The amount of money you’ll spend on your tiny house will vary wildly depending on how large your house will be, how much labor you perform yourself, and how many luxury fittings you choose. To build a small, safe, comfortable, and simple tiny house with basic materials and without any extra odds and ends might cost you about $10,000. But if you’re looking for some fancier digs, you can truly spend as much money as you want depending on your priorities. It’s not unheard of for people to spend over $80,000 on a tiny house.
The sample budget below shows the average range of prices you’ll expect to see for new materials bought stock, not custom. This doesn’t account for labor costs. Use this chart as a starting point to know what to expect when you’re designing and pricing your materials. Some things you may be able to find reclaimed or secondhand, which will reduce your costs.
