Tiny Houses, A good Idea?
I am sure by now you all have seen some type of TV show, you tube video or magazine article on Tiny houses. I am all for affordable houses. I, myself are looking at doing some type of project using shipping containers also known as cargo containers. The thing is I am worried that this will just be Fad. The whole point of this is to be “Green”, lower our “Carbon Footprint” and less pollution by using recycled materials. BUT, some people are going a little bit off tract. When I see a tiny house where the person uses new materials and has spent nearly $100,000, I have to ask, What is the point?
All ready the prices of used Cargo Containers have gone way up from $500-$800 to $2000-$3500 per container. Still that is not bad. There are some great designs using containers. Here is a great house in the east bay hills in the San Francisco Bay Area. It over looks the Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge.
I, however, want to know why no one mentions mobile homes.I have seen mobile homes go any where from$1-$500 and with as little as a few thousand dollars the are brought back to life. Surely that would be true recycling and reducing pollution by using these. I guess Mobile home or Trailer just doesn’t sound sexy. Unless it is an Airstream or a Scamp.
Either way you have to put your tiny house some where and vacant Land is what you need. So Give me a call and lets get started on your tiny house.
