    At $38k this is way over priced, even with the solar system. $380 a square foot?

      Nah, this isn’t overpriced. The materials alone probably cost $20 to $25k, and RV manufacturers don’t take zero profit on their off-gassing machines, so tiny house builders shouldn’t have to either.

      Why does such a majority of the internet think tiny houses should be ridiculously cheap / free?

      I agree Sandra. That is a really small trailer and no way what I see in these pics, materials or space does it justify that price. I’m all for people making a profit but this is robbing one blind. IMO.

    The front porch looks too big and therefore takes footage off the internal area. The kitchen window looks (and is) far too low, and it looks unfinished.
