    How much this cost?

      (Owner) About $75,000 all totaled – a lot of the cost came from some pretty extreme requirements by the city – like a full foundation (2 engineers stated it wasn’t needed that pier and beam would be fine) – a complete additional septic tank, erosion study, etc. I think it could have been a lot less and understand why tumbleweed tiny houses moved to a ‘mobile’ model for their house plans.

    I, too, would like to know if you would be willing to share these plans. I love what you’ve done and am looking to build a tiny house on my daughter’s property.

      The plans are a modified version (for Redmond city code requirements mostly) of a Tumbleweed Tiny House plan – check them out.

    Very cute, but I would need a more complete kitchen.

    The camera plays a lot of tricks on the eye.I guess U are looking at the same space downstairs from diff angles.?
    Its tiny and another loft so?Evidently he has no possessions?
    Its cute but,really too tiny for reality,

      It is too tiny for some people. Not for me though. For Thoreau it might have been too big, but I don’t think so. You’d probably be amazed at how you can adapt once you let go of things you’ve been taught you have to have.

      Certainly not too tiny for reality as it is a real house with real people living in it for years. It is about 200 square feet – the pictures are of the same space – there are a lot more pics on my site. The bed is in the loft (up the ladder). The pictures featured on the site were before it was lived in – I assure you it is fully functional with posessions. A shelf and hanging rod was added to the downstairs room. There is a 3′ crawl space under the entire house for storing things (and the hot water heater).

    I am also in Redmond. Is Redmond more strict than Kirkland? 75k sounds a bit steep for the size. Couldnt you have built a detached ADU?
