Ready to live in a tiny house as soon as possible?
You can buy a tiny home the same way you would buy any other home, already built and ready to move into.
Many mobile tiny houses even qualify for RV financing if you don’t want to pay for it all at once.

Solid Build Wood Sheds & Cabins
The buildings come as a kit for you to put together with your family or a few friends. Solid Build cabins use only natural Norway Spruce boards that are certified as sustainably-grown by the Forest Stewardship Council. Many new wooden sheds are made from processed wood that contains formaldehyde and other noxious chemicals. Solid Build’s don’t—their materials are 100% natural.

Used Tiny Houses
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. Don’t let the word “used” turn you away. Buying a “used tiny house” just means you’re not the first to live in it and we buy lived-in houses all the time!
Buying a tiny house that has already been lived in can save you a lot of money. For example, a used Tumbleweed model can be found for $14,000—more than half the price of a new Tumbleweed model.
You’ll use fewer resources if you buy a used tiny home. There are enough homes, big and tiny, that we do not need to always be building new ones. If a reason for wanting to go tiny is to lessen your environmental impact and live more minimally, buying a used tiny house is a way to hold that intention fully.
Often people build tiny houses to live in temporarily, while building their “other house”. So this leaves a lot of newly built, “gently-used” tiny houses for sale.
eBay is a good place to start, they have a page listing all the tiny houses for sale on eBay, many of which are used.
Tiny House Listings connects tiny house buyers, sellers and builders from around the world. Converted school buses, small canvas yurts and other small homes for sale/rent can be found here too.
Tiny House For Us provides listings of tiny houses for sale or for rent, as well as trailers for sale and listings of property space for parking. They also provide resources for other tiny house related topics, such as books, workshops and a builders directory.
Craigslist and local community billboards are another great place to look for used tiny homes or used RVs and school buses that are ready to be converted.
