The #1 Question I Get Is….


How much does a brown house cost?

You said you like the idea of living off grid… Think about how much that alone would cost you as well as having to have a spot for water containment and graywater. Its the not the house that cost money its the insulation, the heater, air conditioning, composting toilet, all the appliances etc…. Depending on design your windows could also be a major expense.

These houses might be tiny but they cost more per square foot because you are putting a livingroom, kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, all in one tiny space. If it was just four walls and a roof it would be cheap.

Sorry to rant, I get that question a lot and everyone wants one, but when they find out the prices they tend to move on, disappear or go real quiet. You can usually see in their face the “no way it cost that much” expression.

That being said, it cost me around $**,000 to build this last tiny house, but that does not include my time, and this is not a live-in tiny house, it’s more of a summer cabin or guest house for a few nights stay, not a full kitchen, not full of other amenities .

Im actually very very reasonable compared to others out there


Back in the tiny saddle again

After nearly 2 years, I have sold the current tiny house and will be building a new one, I purchased the trailer over the past weekend and will be starting right away on the new tiny house. This one will be more modern and I will take what I learned on the old one and make some changes to the new one. Im pretty excited and will be posting more images and videos of the new build.READ MORE


In the local paper

Everything you need sits inside Jamie Hiner’s “tiny house.” Minifridge under the kitchen counter. Shower behind the hallway pocket door. Queen-size bed in the loft above.


In the Newspaper

The Omaha World Herald is going to be running an article about me and the tiny house. Its scheduled for Saturday on the front page, but it could change. I will post the article here once it comes out.


And the weight is?

So I moved the tiny house on Saturday for the first time. What far off destination did we go? Sapp Bro’s Truck stop to weigh the house. Exciting I know. The whole thing about the weight and moving the house has been “weighing” on my mind. What if I couldn’t get the house out of the backyard, what if the house tipped over when I went down the curb to the street, what if things just started to fly off the house as I drove down the street, what if it was so hard to pull, what if when I got it weighed, it weighed a zillion Pounds.
