How Much Will You Spend?

In my last survey we asked what kind of foundation people wanted we learned that about 50% of people want a house on a permanent foundation. My friend Michael at the ran a similar survey and discovered that 40% of people wanted a 400 square foot small house. So the next question…

I would suggest that you might want to add in a range such as 0-$5000 and $5001 to $10,000

Personally, I’m going to spend less than $5000 including having purchased my 1 acre of land to put it on…

Good poll though. It does not surprise me that most people see that paying $45000+ for a “tiny house” is absurd, especially hen you can buy or “recycle” and old RV for so much less and have more ammenities…

Hi Matt – Thanks for your input. I’ll see if I can add that change.

I put down $10K but with my current planning, Its closer to $12K. I’m not looking so much at recycled building materials, rather, looking for good quality materials to begin with, such as, Denim Insulation, pine interior, Low-E windows… Right now, I’m overseas so my planning will change between now and when I get back home.

(decided to add my so called blog. Not much on it but it’s a start)

I was just thinking of an idea for another poll.. I was curious as to how tiny of a house a person has or is considering to build. Maybe in 50sqft. increments or so; 1-50, 51-100, 100-150..etc.

I lived in a 560 sq ft home before and loved it. I’m not a pack-rat – small is fine. I work from my laptop.
I don’t know where i want to live yet, and I have two horses, and more an more I’m thinking of buying a used gooseneck live-in horse trailer, and changing the interior to fit what i need. This way I can travel to the national parks to ride in, have my home and my office with me – and my horses. i can also unhitch my truck if I have to go places. Has anyone done this before me? Big question…how can I keep my internet connection? (all else I can do off the grid, already figured that out) But the internet.. 🙁
