If you are from Northern California or Oregon you might be interested in this tiny home that is for sale on Craigslist in the Cotati area north of San Francisco.

Derek built this home shortly after attending one of Jay Shafer’s workshops in Sebastople back in 2007. He went on to design his own home and Jay gives him high points for his design.

Derek and his wife are growing there family and are having to move out of the home as it will be to small when the next family member arrives.

Derek's House

Here are some features of Derek’s home: The siding, trim, windows, and door were custom made from recycled Cedar.  Inside, the floors are made from salvaged Douglas Fir and the paneling is salvaged from old-growth redwood fencing.

The home uses a Dickinson Marine fireplace for heat, has a stainless steel refrigerator. It includes a fold-down eating table for two, a walk-in closet and bathroom with toilet, sink and shower, and of course a sleeping loft.

The house is set up like an RV for plumbing and uses a RV hose connection for removal and includes a 50 AMP service connection. Derek is asking $34,000 or best reasonable offer and the house will be available in May.

I want to thank Hillary from ThisTinyHouse for letting me share this with you. You can visit the Craigslist listing to get additional information and to contact Derek.

    A beautiful small home! Congrats!

    I have to say, however:

    It is too bad all of these are getting so expensive.

    Jay is charging well over $800 dollars for most plans now.

    I suppose it was bound to happen! With a ready made Fencl now going for $54K, it won’t be long till true lovers of mother earth are better off restoring character homes with reclaimed materials . . . .

    • Corby says:

      Peter, I agree with you wholeheartedly! If I make the decision to live in a tiny home, I want the freedom of not being tied to a mortgage and many of the financial trappings of a larger space. Of course, $54K is a lot less than even some of the lowest priced traditional homes, but it is still much more than I would expect to pay for living in something the size of a parking space.

      By the way, I have always lived in spaces less than 400 square feet.
