How to go Tiny and Mobile on the Cheap
As I was driving back from Colorado this last weekend during the big freeze that took place and coated everything in ice, I got a chance to visit my cousin in Southern Missouri who I hadn’t seen in a while (first time visiting since he moved there).
It was quite a journey – you can see a few photos below and more on facebook, but in doing some more Tiny House research I found a Tiny House for sale about 90 minutes south of where my cousin was, pretty much en route back to Huntsville.
So of course, I had to call up and make an appointment to see this Tiny House for sale.
So the next morning I drove through the 8 inches of snow that fell (luckily it had warmed up to 34 degrees so everything was melting or it would have taken a real long time!) to meet Ed and take a look at his Tiny House for sale (see below).
He had the tiny house parked facing a small creek in the trees – it was a cool spot showcasing the potential of Tiny House living in that tiny home.
The back story on the home is that it was part of a trade for a couple from Ohio who had built the tiny house and then moved down to Southern Missouri with it and traded it in part for some land.
Own a Tiny House for under $10,000?
Yes. And it’s ready to go. The unit is plumbed and wired for electricity and ready to live in. It has a propane hot water heater, propane oven and stove, small though neat shower and tub, composting toilet, 2 lofts (one big enough to sleep on a queen mattress), a couch, mini-fridge, ample counter top space all in around 150 sf (I can’t remember the exact length of the trailer).
Personally, I would customize it a little more and add my own finishing touches but it has everything you need to live (just need a water and electric supply of course).
You can find the Craigslist listing here and Ed’s website who’s listing it for sale is http://homesteadcrossinginc.com. He sells lots of land all over, so who knows, perhaps we can work together to create the next Tiny House Community there?

Until next time,
