Yesterday I went to the Tortoise Shell Nursery to see Bill’s new design that is currently under construction. He is building a larger Tortoise Shell Home that may be the sweet spot as far as size is concerned.
This Tortoise Shell Home is based on a 26 foot trailer base, and has a shed style roof. It will include a full size bathroom, a kitchen, living area and a small bedroom.
Bill is using green components such as bamboo flooring and energy efficient appliances. He will be using both sheet rock and pine tongue and groove on the walls. Cedar siding and windows in the raised roof for additional natural lighting.
The price range will be between $26,000 and $30,000 depending on finish.
This home should work great for a couple, with 208 square feet, I think this home has great potential. I will be visiting again in the near future and will give you updates as Bill completes this home.
Visit the Tortoise Shell Home website and if you think this home might work for you, be sure and tell Bill that you were referred by the Tiny House Blog.
