    OMG……….sigh. That looks so nice.

  2. Tim says:

    That is an amazing price for all you get with this! Good job Scott!

  3. SMARTY PANTS says:

    looks great but the flooring looks a little to woody for me :)

  4. Jeff says:

    Very nice, great price, nice to see a builder who isn’t insanely expensive like others we’ve seen. I’m designing on my 2nd,10x30ish, thanks for the inspiration!

  5. Zoe says:

    Do you do custom designs? (We need more 10′ models!) – 10′ is actually large enough to live in! Thanks.

    • scott stewart says:

      Hi Zoe, yes we do custom designs, in fact nearly every unit we build is totally custom to fit the buyers needs and or budget. Ten, eleven and twelve foot models are very popular, if you have any ideas or questions just let me know, thanks,

      Scott

        Hello Scott I have a question say I’m making a 10×30 tiny house on wheels would I need a special permit for building one or registration for having it on the road?

        A friend of mine said that code enforcement would cry about permits and that it would need to be registered every year.

        I live in Florida.

        How would one register it, as a trailer or travel trailer?

        • scott says:

          Hello Me’chelle,
          I can only go by what my experiences are with the laws here in my area but Im guessing its probably the same in Fl as well, if you already have a trailer that you plan to build on and it has been licensed then you should be able to use that license as far as registration, I think this is pretty common for most tiny houses built on manufactured trailers, if you are building your own trailer as well you will need to apply for a new title which here in AR gets you a title showing a home made trailer, this route allows you to register it as an rv, here no length or width is specefied so you dont even have to mention the 10′ part, as far as registering every year, it should just be like renewing the tags for a trailer, or here you can buy a permanent tag one time and you are done, now here is a “trick” so to speak on moving time, again going by AR but I think its the same anywhere, when I get a permit to move a 10′ wide building all I need is a permit and wide load signs with a caution light, no escorts, this is the case if the building is a portable building that I am hauling on a trailer and plan to take off the trailer once on site, if you are hauling a 10′ wide trailer you are required to have escorts, so therefore, every unit I haul upto 12′ wide is a portable building, and sometimes we decide to just leave the building on the trailer once its delivered , if you catch my drift, kind of a loophole in the permit process but its never been a problem here, I hope I have answered part of your questions, let me know if you have any others I can answer for you,

          Scott

          • Me'chelle says:

            Yes you have answered my questions Scott actually very fast, I’m sorry I didn’t respond sooner I thought I would receive your reply from this website in an email.

            I didn’t know you could build a portable tiny house from custom plans.

            That’s cool!

            Where would one connect their power source?

            From the largest height being 13.5 feet how high would the loft be?

            How much would a 10×30 portable tiny house be with all the furnishings?

            You can email me at Esuterure2006@yahoo.com

            Thanks Scott!

    These are so nice. I really like the Slabtown Annemarie. great value for the money.

  7. Sam says:

    Can you build without porch and do they have electric stove and a/c we need model to work on 50 amp in a park

    • scott stewart says:

      Hi Sam, thanks for your interest. We can build without a porch, we do this quite often. The units do have air conditioning. As for the electric stove, we can install small electric burners and a toaster oven that can operate on 110 power, a true electric range requires 220 service which is not available in an rv site. Usually when a customer wants a true range we install a gas apartment size range, these are just like a full size range with 4 burners and complete oven but only 20″ wide.
      Please let me know if you have any other questions,

      Scott

  8. Karyn says:

    These look great, Scott! Do you have a website?

    Thanks,

    Karyn

    • scott stewart says:

      Hi Karyn, thanks for the compliment, I do not have a website at this time, it is a work in progress. I will be sure and ask Kent to pass it along once it is up and running.
      Thanks,

      Scott

  9. Andy says:

    I MUCH prefer the work of Scott to many of the more expensive builders. Everyone has a right to choose, however, part of the appeal of Tiny Houses is they don’t cost as much as traditional homes. Scott does nice work at a GREAT price. To me that is what it is all about……getting a fair price for a great product.

  10. LT says:

    What does the pricing run on cabin look? And fairly good size?

    • scott stewart says:

      Good morning LT, you know I just have to mention the timing of your post, 10:10 am on 10/10/10,
      I probably wouldnt have thought about it except my 10 yr old daughter was watching for that to hit on her clock. Anyway, to change the exterior siding from the painted to a rustic pine in either lap or old school board and batt doesnt change the price at all, I do have access to log siding but this will add around $2500 to a unit that size , (10×38) the rustic pine looks much the same as the log siding when installed in a lap siding using 1x6s or 1x8s.
      Thanks for your question, please let me know if you have any others,

      Scott

  11. LT says:

    I would very much like to look at some of your buildings, would this be feasible? I am located in mountain view.

    • scott stewart says:

      LT, I will be more than happy to show you what we are working on at any given time, I have a unit that is almost finished now I can show you , it will be here for the next couple of days, it doesnt have the rustic siding but I can show you the material and a couple of buildings here in the county that do have the rustic siding. Just let me know when you would like to come take a look, feel free to call me any time at 870-213-5310, thanks,

  12. Katie says:

    Hello Scott,

    I am turning 50 next year, I have married and divorced, lost my credit rating along with the divorce, took in my mother, took care of my three children and have paid rent and have no hope of ever owning a home. When I first saw these tiny homes it really brought me hope that I could achieve some kind of backup plan in order to not burden my children when I am older. When I saw the prices I was so deflated, I know nothing about building a home myself and the cost of having it built was too far out of my reach. I just want you to know that when I read an article about your product I actually felt hopeful again. Most of us work our fingers to the bone day in and day out, robbing peter to pay paul, keeping optimistic, but, in truth, I have always have this fear of what if. Thanks for the renewed hope in something obtainable.

    • John - Ocala, FL says:

      Katie:

      I hate to see someone in your position – it reminds me of my mother-in-law’s situation, which is just like yours. I am sure your kids love you and if it came down to it, I’m sure it would be an honor for them to help you out.

      You have a trait that I respect, independence! That’s what’s wrong with this country, today: we have too many that EXPECT others to provide for them. You keep that spirit and things will work out for you and remember, kids love their Mothers. I would do anything for mine and if that involved her living with us, that’s great. It just means more precious time with her.

      I don’t know your age or health; however, if possible, you may want to volunteer on some projects, like Habitat for Humanity and learn some of the skills it takes to build a home. You never know what kind of contacts you can make and you would be making something happen, instead of sitting around, waiting on it to happen on it’s own.

      I wish you the best and continue to be an inspiration to your kids and others.

      Sincerely,

      John Curtis

  13. Hi.

    I actually have a few questions. First, who would I contact about permits on one of your homes?

    Do most owners of these tiny homes put them into rv parks, trailer parks? What would I do to find out local acceptance in order to actually park one and live in it?

    How would you hook up the septic for the bathroom? If you have property, would you be able to tie into a septic tank or county water, just like a regular home, or are they equipped with a tank like an rv?

    Do you make 2-story units? If so, can these also be moved as a “portable building”?

    Lastly, we are thinking about purchasing one to take with us to Ecuador when we retire. They use propane down there. I have also found 110-volt real counter-top convection ovens and portable propane burners through our local restaurant equipment supplier that I thought might work for cooking.
    What size refrigerator could work? Is it possible to fit an 18 cu.ft.?

    Sincerely,

    Paula (Starting to plan!)

  14. P.S……

    How close are you to Lowell? I have family there. I may like to come up and look at your homes in person.

    OMG…I want this sooo VERY bad…:( Someday I will get one!!

  16. Nora Mae Smith says:

    I love this one but I would change the front porch a bit to be able to use the space a bit more. I would make the front porch more enclosed so that it could be used as a place to leave the shoes and coats and have more sleeping area I have 15 grand kids and still counting so when they if they ever come to stay over it would be nice to have that extra room… like side benches with top fold down bunks Screen windows that would open to let in the breeze. I might just go with this style with a front door and a side door to the back.. That would come in handy if I were to gain country property later to run up to a deck.

  20. irene says:

    i like this.. until i saw the electrical outlet in the upstairs loft was right under the window… not a great place for an electrical outlet

  21. hazel says:

    are you all stark raving mad? leave poor scott alone. do you think he has all day to answer stupid questions and listen to you going on and on about yourselves and nothing? and how many pester him to death and then don’t even buy a house? quit sucking others energy.

    scroogle should be your friend, learn to use it.

  22. What a beautiful house!

    This house seems like the ideal size and configuration for my wife and I. Right now we’re renting a small apartment, but before that we traveled and lived full-time in a used 34′ Airstream travel trailer (interior area under 250 square feet) and we found it was wonderful. We’d still be living in it, except that we live in Canada and such a trailer cannot be properly heated and vented of moisture in our harsh winters and we don’t want to spend every winter in the US (we love our winters up here).
    Could you tell us if, within the design constraints of this house, if it would be possible to build one that could handle a very cold winter? This would mean heavier insulation in walls and roof, double-paned windows, double doors, and water lines, sewage lines, and propane lines that are suitably insulated against freezing.
    Have any of your houses been purchased and inhabited year-round in the northern states or Canada? We might want to be the first!

    Any information you could give us, be it positive or negative, would be appreciated.

    Sincerely,
    Martin
