Ambershawn recently brought something interesting to my attention.
Costco, the big box store, sells a tiny house.
It is called the “HomePlace” guesthouse and is one of their many small structures. Costco builds tiny houses, play houses and garden sheds. Personally, I think the Bungalow Garden building would make a perfect tiny house, it ranges in size from 12ft X 16ft to 12ft X 24ft and the costs for what appears to be a shell range from $4,995 to $7,244.
You can select a paint color, asphalt shingle color or even have wood shingles. According to Costco, the Bungalow provides a great mix of pleasing functionality and aesthetics.
Engineered drawings are available upon request to help you get many of our Garden Buildings/Garages approved for your site. These drawings detail standard features of the unit, and provide information about snow and wind loads.
Some locations/municipalities require that a stamped engineered drawing be prepared in order to obtain a permit; contact one of our Design Consultants for further details if you will need drawings. Be sure to obtain any required permits before placing your order.
Standard features include:
- 2×4 Rafters 24″ on center
- Doub le plywood gussets
- Screened wood vents
- 2×4 Double wall plate
- Factory primed trim
- Boxed in 12″ gables
- 2 Wrought iron flower hooks
- Factory primed siding
- Sidewalls 2×4 16″ on center
- Insulated raid panel double house doors
- Real lock set
- Black antique hinges
- Three vinyl flower boxes
- 24×30″ Aluminum sider windows
- 18″ wide front overhang
- Off-set A-frame roof
So, if you are looking for an economical starting place for your tiny house, this is for sure an option. Check it out online here and or visit your local Costco and ask for more information.
