Also Know, are tiny houses really cheaper?
Smaller Means Cheaper — Well, Sort Of Let's state the obvious: A small home is generally less expensive than a McMansion. The average do-it-yourself tiny home costs about $23,000, while the average U.S. home price is up around $273,000. But square foot for square foot, tiny homes are actually tremendously expensive.
The main cost depends upon how handy you are with a hammer. Tiny houses can be built for as little as $8,000 if you're able to do the work yourself, but the average cost to build one yourself is $23,000, quite a savings from the average cost for a traditional home, which is $275,000.
