A Micro Home Marketing Survey

Guest Post by Walt Barrett

In order to get an idea of the number of people involved in the actual market for micro homes we are asking you to answer a few questions. We are not asking for personal information, but taking a poll to learn your interests. If you answer these questions it may very well speed up the permit process and also the emergence of mass produced micro homes to the marketplace. Mass produced homes and kits will greatly reduce the costs of each unit. Competition is the great equalizer.

Thank you in advance.

Please comment below on the three questions at the end of the poll. Short answers for numbers 12, 13, and 14 would be appreciated.

[poll id=”10″] [poll id=”11″] [poll id=”12″] [poll id=”13″] [poll id=”14″] [poll id=”15″] [poll id=”16″] [poll id=”17″] [poll id=”18″] [poll id=”19″] [poll id=”20″]

Use comment section to answer the next three questions.

12. How much a month could you afford to pay?
13. What do you think is a fair price just for your particular choices from above?
14. What state would you prefer to live in your micro home?

12. How much a month could you afford to pay? $200

13. What do you think is a fair price just for your particular choices from above?
$5000-8000 for a modular kit, I would think

14. What state would you prefer to live in your micro home?
Somewhere in Appalachia, likely in the northeast GEORGIA (1st choice) mountains or possibly western North Carolina (2nd choice), or eastern Tennessee (3rd choice) both near the Georgia state line (making them farther south is the reasoning, so less snow and milder winters)

Jen - April 24, 2011 Reply

I would like to pay less than $1K a month for two people in an 800 square foot home. I think, depending the on the cost of land, I should be able to build the house for about $60K. I’d like to stay in Colorado. I want the house to be on the grid, but feed to it with geothermal and solar as well as use a passive design to decrease energy needs.

Somewhere in the neighborhood of 25 to 30,000. Maybe $ 35,000.

Somewhere near a college so I could teach. Preferably one that wouldn’t have a problem with my buying land and parking the small house on it.

I would only build what I could afford to pay for up front–no loan at all.

I would be paying cash for the home.
Something small, full of light, well insulated.
I would pay up to $35,000 but prefer a basic shell and to choose my own embellishments and appliances. Probably composting toilet, though in Ca. you usually are forced to also have a septic tank. Prefer catchment to a well and solar panels for sure. Want to live in rural California, Santa Cruz mts. or Nevada County. Thanks!

SCL - April 24, 2011 Reply

I could pay up to $500/month, but would hope to have cash.

I would prefer to live in California, but that won’t happen, because it is too expensive. I need to be reasonably near medical and school facilities.

I think ~$35,000 is fair.

12.) As of right now 300 a month.
13.) In Kentucky the amish will build you a basic shell for about 8000 or less. I would also have a composting toilet, probably solar panels (let’s just say partially off the grid for now. All together with land no more than $50.000. Want a log cabin with loft or a wooden yurt.
14.)Colorado

Jen. - April 24, 2011 Reply

Hey– Cool idea with this survey. Unfortunately, I think the results won’t be very useful. I have no idea how to answer most of these questions. Eg. if I want two floors, for some styles that essentially doubles the square footage, and for some it doesn’t add anything. I want a washer/ dryer on the property, but not necessarily in the house. I’m open to a variety of ready-made, DIY styles, etc., but my dream is to definitely live small.

Some people will have a very concrete plan in mind, and so will have specific answers, but those won’t necessarily be useful either. For instance, they may say their dwelling should be on wheels, but that could be because of the zoning in the area they hope to put it in, not because of ultimate preference.

I think this is a useful exercise but the questions you have here aren’t going to get you very useful answers.

Suzanne - April 24, 2011 Reply

I could pay between $500 and $800.

Price is a huge variable depending even where I go in my city and I don’t necessarily want to stay here when I retire. I want to be in an urban center. My family has a double-deep lot in a very exclusive area so I could put my micro-house on the second lot and help care for my elderly mother. I’m guessing that option would still cost me close to $100K.

I prefer California, even with all of it’s problems.

Cindy - April 24, 2011 Reply

I intend to pay for my home upfront,

I think I can build it for around 5K with basic cabin and solar oven and humanure compost toilet and solar hot water shower outside

Would like somewhere with no restrictions and low land cost… closest to get to that at the moment in Texas is in Brewster County, the Chihuahuan desert… so you tell me, where else are there no restrictions?

I don’t plan to have any reoccurring monthly bills for anything but insurance, taxes and utilities. I intend to pay cash for land and materials for home.

$40,000 — any more than this and I could buy a tight, smaller home in my hometown without any of the inherent headaches of a tiny home.

13. My father and I have already estimated $25,000 at the high end to build it ourselves. He’s an environmental architect so I have a golden spoon in this venture.

We acutally have our dream home here in Raleigh, NC now. We affectionately call it The Love Shack…all 687 sq.ft. Over two years ago we began downsizing from 3,800 sq.ft. to 1,405 sq.ft. apartment to our final retirement home. It’s located in a community and the HOA dues are a little of $100.00 which includes the entire grounds and outside maintenance of our home. It also sports a 18 hole golf course, 2 swimming pools, tennis courts and a full gym with interior basketball courts. We are very blessed indeed.

Audrey - April 24, 2011 Reply

11. Neither. My house will be run off of solar grids and a well and as there is no viable washing machine that would not require a separate DC converter/generator, I found that it would not be suitable for my needs. Besides clothes last longer by hand washing so I purchased a standing wash/utility basin and will hang clothes in front of my wood burning stove to dry.

12. How much a month could you afford to pay? I will not pay rent to anyone and I thought that this is the main reason for downsizing and/or building my own house…I’m okay with paying someone else to do some of the work to build, but at this point the tumbleweed houses do not include modern amenities and are basically a shell so besides building materials and the cost of the designs, what would I be paying for?

13. What do you think is a fair price just for your particular choices from above? The cost of the home, no more than $50,000 (fully built and with some plumbing), and property taxes.

14. What state would you prefer to live in your micro home? The Rocky Mountains of Colorado near fresh water and fishing.

Audrey - April 24, 2011 Reply

One more note. Many of these homes with steep ladders do not seem appropriate for those who are even slightly disabled or elderly and I intend to purchase once and be able to live in my home until old age. Any chance that full stairs could fit into the designs?

For the house, I would want it to be reasonable. I think a lot of the challenge people run into is having the money for it without getting a mortgage. I’d love to set up a company for mortgages for small homes because I can’t afford one out of pocket.

Hi,
I’m interested in building micro mobile homes as I think there is a segment of the young population that’s wary these days of buying a home on a long term mortgage. I envision some people as ready to make a small investment in a home that can be readily moved based on need.

We will be looking at a small new construction on our adult children’s property. When we are gone, they have a rental unit. Hope to not have a monthly payment at that point. Maybe 500-700 sq. ft. all on one floor with stackable washer/dryer and little upkeep. Probably match adult children’s home in color at least.

      I did leave a few details out, I’m afraid (some for good reason)

      My “tiny house” is 400 sq ft, wired and insulated, with another 92 sq ft of storage and shop space all under the same roof.

      There is water and power at the street of an owned lot in the southern US. (I have never owned, nor wanted, washer, dryer, TV, microwave, stereo, and other “standard” American amenities. Electricity, phone, computer, small fridge and secure shelter fill all needs).

      There are two basic innovations.

      1.I bought a 16×36 pole shelter, upgraded to comply with resident standard reinforcements and hurricane resistance specifications. Installation by a trained crew was included in the price. I then had a slab poured, doing the prelim work myself. I then enclosed most of the space under the roof (leaving room for a porch) all completed to look like an attractive gable-end residential home.

      2. Second innovation was to utilize a lightweight 16 foot travel trailer as a kitchen and bath “module”, eliminating the need for a waste disposal system on the property. This also serves as a guest cottage. I haul it back and forth seasonally to a similarly built “docking station” up north.

      Total cost (not including trailer and lot) is under $8000.

      Hope this helps.

1. i’d really like to pay nothing per month, ideally. although $150 would be it for right now. 2. i’m looking at used rv’s right now and i’m budgeting about $2500-5000 for that.
3. not sure where i’d like to settle yet, that’s what the rv is for.

ultimately, i’d like to build a cob house, off the grid, my land.

While living in my tiny home and having virtually no expense but this I look forward to paying off all my financial obligations and school loans. Then I would like to build a slightly larger tiny home. Right now I am collecting the materials for my XS tumbleweed. Just ordered the trailer custom, without sides, rails, and minimal boards to save the work and additional tools, this did not cost any more to order this way.

I am looking on keeping costs for my initial xs home to be below 10k.

I spent most of my adult life in the tropics of SWFLA but have come to love the trees of the north…i just can not stand the cold! Maybe I could become a snowbird or jst simply live halfway down the country!

12. How much a month could you afford to pay?
Based on current expenses, leaving aside what I’d still need to pay for such as taxes, insurance, etc: about $260 per month

13. What do you think is a fair price just for your particular choices from above?

Given that there is a huge range of costs, degree and kind of finishing, for the house: I think I could do it for around 20,000 to 25,000, depending on how much I had to hire out (I am partly disabled). That’s house alone.

14. What state would you prefer to live in your micro home?

I live in Vermont now, in a small (but too large for me) village house I own and want to sell. I’d love to move back to the west (home for me), but feel, given my resources, not realistic. So looking and asking around about a rural lot, preferably in or near community of like-minded folks, here in Vermont. Would be lovely if someone was looking to move out or up and had a little house to sell!

I haven’t looked into this enough to know what is fair. This is only doable for me if the costs are low enough.

As someone else said I need big enough that you can have stairs for when you are no longer able to easily climb a ladder with your hands full – even if storage is the only thing up high.

I’d also like to echo some of these questions had other answers than yes/no

Also a good way to anchor one of these down if they are on wheels so you don’t have the trailer park tornado/hurricane problems in high winds

at the time i voted, there were 688 responses to the first question but
695 to the second?
there was no provision for no responses
which culd also have helped in this …
I suppose I can tell you that
my NO is because I have some hobbies that just need ROOM. mostly for documentations. followed with photography STUFF wich does lessen as time goes but finishing etc requires room for stuff.(no i dont like working in a barn, i want the STUFF and the work to be part of my living, not remote and hidden or out of the way.
I lived in a small place when I first started out. I am not in favorof multitasking a room. I have done it, dont want to do it again, but that does not mean i have no interest in what others are doing or that i cant advance it for the ease of others and for businesses(those building travel trailers and mobile homes) .
I am intersted in the considerations of a small house in the midst of zoned properties greater than 800sq. SO, an effort to nest similar/like minded individuals would be a good thing. Planning and Zoning must be brought in.
I think for seniors, some needing a kitchen, bath and bed/common room with ramps and open floor plan would be a good thing. Single button window closure, curtain drawer, remote fans, remote MASTER OFF on stove, Remote on temp for furnace all would be in the scheme for the seniors.Ramp and covered car and covered doorways essential. assisted but IN ONES OWN SPACE sounds great. APARTMENT halls are not to my liking.
I like the eccletic of some of the tiny’s but people must be able to LIVE in them. still, they are nice to look at and the venue is definately part of the magic.

12: $300/month

13: I chose off grid, and off wheels, so I expect to pay about $4000 for the 128sq ft, single story structure, $1000 for a relatively small solar system (400 watts, with batteries and charge controller, no inverter), $500 for rain catchment, storage and filtration, and $500 for solar hot water system (with on demand propane backup). From the decisions above, I expect less than $10 monthly costs for propane and no other utilities.

14: I expect to buy about 10 rural, wooded acres for $50K somewhere with a temporate mountainous climate, such as the big island, Hawaii, Idaho, the Pacific North West or the middle east coast. Expected annual taxes should be less than $3K.

This isn’t a very good survey, the questions are to vague. For instance : Do you prefer a 1 story or 2 . Well they don’t say if a 1 story with a loft is considered a 2 story ?
Do you prefer it to bbe off the power grid? Well again, I would like it to be off the power gridd, but I would like it to have the ability to connect to the gridd if I so choose to.
Do you want water and sewer ? Does this mean city water and sewer , or does it mean having a fresh, grey and black water holding tank ?? …………

I didn’t press “publish” because I simply can’t answer many of these questions. Hate to be a bummer… but you guys should test out surveys like this on a few people before going live to get the kinks out.

    alice - April 25, 2011 Reply

    Not sure what comes up on your screen but I had individual vote buttons for each question and the option to answer the last 3 as comments. If I didn’t have an answer I could leave that question blank. Each question has a total number of voters as well as percentages shown at the end so you can compare how many people answered each one. For example on the washer, dryer or both question I would assume that if you don’t answer it that means you don’t want either. I think it’s more to give a general idea rather than be a fully “scientific” poll. People’s ideas and opportunities are always in flux so it’s really just a momentary snapshot anyway and some answers may be more indicative of “what should be” than “what is”.

As a contractor I would build the tiny house out of straw bale and used timbers for the post and beams. I belive I could build the whole thing for about $10,000 not including land. It would have a gray water system, a way of storing rain water, septic and leach field for sewer. The land would have to have water for a well at a reasonable depth. Propane and solar for energy use. Mid Arizona, where it is not too cold and not too hot..along the rim. I have built this type of home and they are very energy efficient and very DIY friendly. Conserve, and use old lumber and look for demoliton of buildings for use materials. This cuts cost.

I plan to live in a storage building or cheap travel trailer while building and I will build it as I have the money…no monthly payments. I will spend as needed to build it, and will use as many free materials as I can aquire, and am not putting a time limit for building, so I have no set figure for finished price (I am already collecting components). I have property in Arkansas, but hope to build in Texas, as job opportunities are better, there is no state income tax, and most of my family live in Texas.

I would love to pay $75.00 dollars a month.
The price should be be 7,ooo dollars off grid, and $9,000 for extra amenties.
I would love to own a piece of lot in any city urban enviroment.
I currentl live in Philadelphia,and I should be able to live in a tiny house without all the restrictions.
The rural enviroment is not for everyone, I want to live in a urban city enviroment.
The tiny house companys should really think about creating extra creative spaces within the tiny house, for children and pets.
I currently need a tiny house for one adult and two children,including 2 cats and 2 dogs.
I want to spend less than $ $9,ooo dollars, and I want to own a small low cost lot in the city.!!!!!

12. How much a month could I afford to pay? If this question refers to a mortgage payment, then my answer is $300 per month, for a 250-square-foot home. I also assume that there would be no additional fees for a homeowners’ association.

13. What do you think is a fair price just for your particular choices from above? If I obtained a 15-year mortgage, with monthly payments of $300 per month, then the total fair cost (with mortgage payments) would be $54,000. That would be fair. If paid in cash, then a fair price would be approximately $40,000.

14. What state would you prefer to live in your micro home? I am a city-dwelling California native, so I would prefer to remain here. However, I certainly would consider other locales, if they met my need for walkability.

12. I plan to buy a more remote property so the price won’t be so outrageous. I’m hoping for about 5 acres on a lake. I’m hoping to keep the price at $20,000 or lower for the land. The cabin I will have to price out materials depending what way I decide to go with building ie logs, 6×6 lumber, post and beam, or frame. Depending on the location of the property I have also thought of milling my own lumber with the Alaska mill.

13. Depends on the above information.
