Did the first house sell? We are very interested in the property. Or are there other homes like it for sale is it is sold. We would purchase with cash.
Thank you.

    Collin Vickers - August 5, 2016 Reply

    Hey Lanette, that particular listing has been archived, which may mean that the house has sold. I recommend having a look at http://tinyhouselistings.com/ and searching for homes in the area you’d like to live in to see if there are similar opportunities available. 🙂

    My wife and I are coming to Traverse City in the near future. Do you have any tiny homes that we could take a look at. We have never actually been inside one and would like to see one first hand.

I am very interested in a small home. I would like to stay around the Grand Rapids area. How do I go about looking for properties to purchase a tiny or small home. Thanks in advance

Penny - February 14, 2019 Reply

I have a 32′ 5th wheel that I would like to replace the roof (rubber) to a traditional tiny home roof and replace the fiberglass siding with another type of siding. I would like to replace the flooring material with a laminate flooring but have two slide outs (Bedroom and LR/DR).
Is there anyone out there that is willing to tackle such a project? At least replace the roof at this time. It is a 2000 Coachman and the first to be a metal frame RV. It is located just south of Battle Creek, Michigan

Joann Michigan - February 25, 2020 Reply

I would love to have one because I feel like it would be very cozy and affordable.
