Tiny Houses...The Next Big Thing
so my parents sold their beautiful little house in Romeoville. That's step one to moving back to the U.S.. Step two is selling their beautiful house in Mexico (starting bid at 60,000.00 USD). Step two is just a technicality though. My little familia is hoping that they'll move here sooner rather than later. In any case, step three is moving here to Houston means jumping head first into the housing market again. The last time my parents were here, they talked about the differences between purchasing an older house, versus buying a newly built one. This would decide where in the Houston area they would live. My father was more inclined to looking into a newly built house. It seems that in Katy, they are pretty reasonably priced and he wouldn't have the worries of an antiquated electrical system or something similar. So, I started thinking about what options there are in building affordable housing.
This is what I found. Tumbleweed Tiny Houses.
Conceivably, I think Killy and I could build a small house in our back yard. It seems that this house, built complete with a mini toilet and loft bed, can be built and delivered into our back yard for the great price of 47K.
Now wouldn't this solve the Office Space problem...
Plus, it would be a great place for guests!
