Even though I have a family of 4 — that sometimes feels like a family of 16 — I dream of owning a tiny house.
Who knows, maybe one day I can make a tiny home my home-away-from-home in my backyard. LOL!
There is one couple — Alla Ponomareva and her husband Garrett — who have made a way to put an inexpensive, simple small A-frame house on their property, and they got it for basically a steal.
It cost them a mere $700 to build, and it only took 3 weeks to put together.
They did their research, and did it right!
They found an inexpensive A-frame tiny house design from Derek Diedrickson, and then they looked for and used upcycled materials to finish the house.
The cabin, once completed, clocked in at 80 square feet — so it’s really no wonder it only took 3 weeks to finish.
Now, this A-frame beauty is on the rustic side.
It is completely off the grid — which means no internet or TV for this little house.
Alla and Garett did decide to use a solar panel on the house that can power a light or charge a phone for emergencies.
There is also no bathroom in this 80 square foot space — heck, there’s no room for one!
There is a portable toilet and solar powered shower just a short stone’s throw from the cabin.
Now, Alla and Garett do use this small space for when friends and family come to visit — like a guest house of sorts — but it can also be rented from Airbnb.
While the cabin is on the property of Alla and Garett’s “real” home, it is part of a 20-acre plot of land, so you will feel plenty secluded.
The cabin can comfortably sleep 3 people — but one of those lucky people will have to rough it on the floor.
It can be rented for just $100 a night, and it is located in Missoula, Montana.
If you want to read more about how they built this tiny cabin, you can do so on the Alla Ponomareva website.
