How much does a tiny house usually cost?
I’ve seen owner builders do it for as low as $6K-$8K but on average is seems $20K is common. To buy one that has been professionally built expect to see $30K-$50K price tags. Also see http://tinyhouselistings.com for homes for sale.
You can get materials from scrap, from resale places or Habitat For Humanity stores. A lot of big construction sites have scrap for free. In the area I live you can purchase a larger already built structure, custom built for your needs starting at about $3500. The one we looked at had two loft spaces, one big (for a bedroom like setting) and one small just under the doorway into it for storage.
