A $30K tiny house project in Florida is getting a lot of attention, but how much would you pay for a one-room house in a small town?
We recently asked two experts to weigh in.
We’re talking about the small town of Katoomba, North Carolina, which is located near the state’s borders with North Carolina and Georgia.
In January, Katoumba officials approved a $15,000 house to be built in the small city, with the goal of attracting a “high-tech industry.”
According to the town’s mayor, the goal is to attract “high technology,” as opposed to just a “manufacturing industry.”
The goal is also to attract investors.
But if the town is to achieve this, it needs to build its own housing, so it has to build a tiny house.
The tiny house isn’t a new concept, but it’s not the only one that can be built for this amount of money.
“I’m going to get a couple of thousand for a house,” says Ken Williams, an architect who is building the home out of recycled materials and recycled materials from nearby townships.
“The house needs to be made out of materials that will be recyclable, so that’s where my focus is.
It’s not about making a big house.
I think the biggest problem with a big-budget movie is that you don’t get to play with the toys and have a lot to do with the building of the house.
You need to build it yourself, but you need to make it yourself.”
Williams is a member of the Construction Builders Association, which represents builders in North Carolina.
He says that, as an architect, he is often asked to design tiny houses, but he says he doesn’t feel compelled to do so.
“It’s not a project that’s on my radar right now,” Williams says.
“It’s one that’s a lot more in the background.
The construction industry is very focused on the movie industry and that’s one of the main reasons why we’re seeing so much interest in these kinds of projects.”
The first few houses built in Katoobas tiny house were built for $15 a week, Williams says, which was a lot less than the $60,000-$70,000 he paid for his previous tiny house projects.
The town plans to build another $10,000 tiny house in the next few months, with a price tag of around $40,000.
It seems like a lot, but Williams says the town doesn’t need a lot in the way of money to keep the project going.
“The only thing that I really care about is keeping the town going, and the goal we have here is to create a place that people want to call home,” he says.
Williams has also helped build a small-town restaurant, the Katoabans Seafood and Fishhouse, where the small-time chefs earn about $3 an hour.
His restaurant, called Katoabeats, is also being designed by a local company, and it is currently in the process of opening its doors to the public.
We asked Williams if he thought the tiny house trend could be a boon to the construction industry.
“I don’t think that it’s going to hurt construction,” he replies.
“There’s still a lot going on in construction, and I think it’s an important industry to have.”
