Cost Breakdown

This page will be updated every time we spend money and show a running total at the bottom. We have a secured loan for $18,100.00 to get our Tiny House to a liveable point. After moving in we will pay in cash for all the finishes and furnishing. We do not need to buy any tools, as we are using Cody’s dad Bruce’s stuff. Lucky us!

Our projected end total is $25,000. Our projected move in date is August 2016 and we’re hoping to have it 100% finished by June 2017.
