Small Houses in The New York Times

On February 16, 2007 Bethany Lyttle wrote a great primer on Small Houses called Think Small. There are links to the featured designers and manufacturers at the bottom of the post. Definitely worth the read.

“PRICES for tiny houses vary by region, but in general reflect degrees of finishing, who does the building, types of materials and design options. In general, count on spending anywhere from $35 a square foot for a very basic structure to more than $200 a square foot for designer models built with specialized or luxury materials.

Manufacturers’ prices do not always include delivery fees, and there can be other costs, including site preparation, foundation work and installation of electric, water and sewer services.You have to go into this with open eyes, said Jay Shafer, owner of the Tumbleweed Tiny House Company. Zoning laws, land covenants, building permits, restrictions and codes vary within states and across the country, and these impact what has to be done at the site, and how.
