My order is confirmed; I’ll be attending a tiny house workshop! In the meantime, I may start building my small house. I’m nervous about purchasing the land though. Do I build in town? I’m a country girl, but if I build in town I can walk to work. I wouldn’t have to drive, and car insurance would be cheaper. House insurance and taxes may be too, but land is cheaper in some of the smaller communities in the area. I really don’t want to invest $45,000 in a small house, but that’s my first estimate based on land, utility installation, a guestimate on the cost of the shell, and the finish work. That’s scary. What if I need to move? Will someone want it? Could I rent it out? If I rent it will someone abuse it?
Would it be more responsible to buy a larger house that’s on the market? It might, but I’m not sure. And I’m not sure I care. Or could I find a vacant lot in an area where land is a high commodity? There seems to be one lot available at a very good price. If so I could build for $35,000 or less including the land. That seems more doable. Tomorrow morning by 9:00 I will be there finding out.
