Today, more and more alternatives are emerging when it comes to living arrangements. Small mobile spaces are increasingly popular, we call them tiny houses. In self-construction or turnkey, the prices of these small houses vary according to several criteria. Find out, the estimate of a tiny house.
Evaluating the cost of an empty or turnkey structure
There are several estimates regarding the acquisition of a tiny house.
The structure alone
It is possible to buy only a shell or a tiny turnkey, that is to say fully equipped. On average, the price difference between the two models is between 15 and 20% of the final price. It is not easy to give a precise estimate. As a general rule, we estimate for a tiny house of 6 m² empty, that is to say without equipment, a budget between 28,000 and 30,000 euros. For smaller models, i.e. 4.5 m² without terrace, the price starts from 25,000 euros. Beyond that, for an area of 10 m², the price of a small house with a terrace can start from 50,000 euros. These prices are indicative, as they do not include the layout and possible taxes.
The key in hand
If the budget is not a problem, it is quite possible to consider the purchase of a turnkey property. Many manufacturers offer ready-made homes. Depending on the models and manufacturers, prices vary greatly. On average, based on a small area with entry-level equipment, it costs around 29,000 to 32,000 euros. Conversely, high-end models around 8 m² will be offered between 60,000 and 70,000 euros. It takes an average of 45,000 euros for a tiny house equipped.
Prices for self-construction
It is also possible to opt for self-construction. This solution is suitable for DIY enthusiasts. This system is the most economical way to meet your desire for a miniature house. However, this type of good takes a lot of time and energy.
The purchase of raw materials
Materials largely make up most of the budget. Indeed, it is necessary to buy wood, insulation wool, steel, etc. This represents approximately between 8,000 and 15,000 euros of the total budget. In the case of green equipment, the budget can also easily increase. It is therefore interesting to use recycled materials to limit costs and their ecological footprint. However, new materials must be used when it comes to the framework. The overall price of a self-build is between 20,000 and 25,000 euros.
It is also important to account for the ancillary costs during the construction of a tiny house, especially with regard to tools. You also need to have the capacity to store the material. Also, it is necessary to find out about any taxes depending on the region and the size of the dwelling. Indeed, a tiny house also responds to local taxes and development tax.
