Budget

UPDATE (August 22, 2012): Due to construction decisions, rising cost of lumber (due primarily to oil prices), and our families needs we have reassessed our budget and feel we can build (with the help of our sponsors, of course) for no more than $12,000. Therefore, our new budget is set at $12,000 US dollars!

Below is the working budget for the Tiny r(E)volution tiny house/cottage. We intend on building our 30 ft. Tiny House for less than $10,000 US dollars. All will be paid for in cash so there will be no residual financing or payment plans post-move in. The budget will be updated as each purchase is made.
