The majority of tiny houses that we see for sale tend to cost $30,000 and up, many of them in the $40,000+ range. So, it is a pleasant surprise anytime I find a tiny house that you can buy for under $20,000.
It is especially delightful when the tiny house in question is uniquely and artistically designed. Where the Red Fern Grows is a 8’ x 16’ tiny house model by builder Incredible Tiny Homes, which classifies it as a Randy Jones Original. Let’s check it out.
The materials and design for the home are entirely rustic with a minimal awning above the entrance. As the sign you see in front of it mentions, it keeps your living temperature comfortable with spray foam insulation.
The kitchen and the seating area are joined together, as is common in tiny house layouts. But what really grabs attention in this interior is not any one specific feature, but rather the overall rustic aesthetic of the home. Every single element is infused with it.
I just love the natural branches which have been used to prop up the shelves in the kitchen. Between those shelves and the wood paneled walls, living in this house feels like being simultaneously out in the forest. It’s a best-of-both-worlds setting—the splendor of nature and the comfort of home.
The lamps bring a warm glow into the room during day or night. The couch looks like the best place ever to kick back and read a book, or just enjoy looking out the window.
Above the kitchen is a small loft. We don’t get much of a view of it, but I presume that one can use it for storage, and that one sleeps on the sofa bed. I can’t help looking at the picture on the wall which reads, “When one door closes, another door opens,” and think to myself, “If that’s the door to my old home so I can move into this one, I’m all for it!”
Even the design of the kitchen cabinets are fitting with the rustic theme. Not a single detail has gone overlooked. I don’t see much in the way of appliances, but adding a cooktop would be easy,
From the seating area, looking toward the front door, you can spot the bathroom on the left with a flush toilet. A sliding barn door can conceal it for privacy.
If you want to move to Where the Red Fern Grows, it can be yours for a base price of just $15,000.
Lest you worry that that doesn’t include anything, think again. As listed here, all the company’s Randy Jones Original Cottage Style tiny houses come with a trailer, spray foam insulation, metal roof, wood floors installed, kitchen sink and faucet, cabinets, shower stall, residential toilet, 19-gallon electric water heater and more. They are also available in larger sizes at an additional cost. But even the largest layouts cost only $36,000. To get in contact with the builder about purchasing your own, just visit the link above.
