How Much to Build a Tiny House | Budget Breakdown

Tiny house builds are a lot like regular home construction—you need land and materials. Whether you choose to hire a builder or do it yourself, it’s up to you to choose your budget.

Factors that affect the cost of your tiny home:

  • Location
  • Whether you build on a foundation or trailer
  • Quality of materials
  • Size
  • Complexity of the building design

You can build a tiny home to match any budget.

Tiny House with a Builder 

If you choose to use a tiny house builder, you’ll spend on average between $45,000-$70,000. The budget can increase from there depending on finishes, materials, and labor. A luxury tiny house could run you upwards of $100,000.

Though a builder adds significant costs to labor, it could shorten your building time.
