Tiny houses can cost upwards of a couple of hundred thousand dollars, which seems like overkill for undersized. The folks at Pin-Up Houses have something else in mind. Build your own with some affordable full instructions and plans. Their Gaia Container house is actually a smart home that’s self-sustaining with solar energy and rainwater. Buy the full plans for $190, procure the container and materials, and get to work. Gaia uses a 20-foot High Cube shipping container and makes use of solar panels, a wind turbine, and a rainwater collection system. there’s even an app to check power consumption. The house makes room for a bathroom, kitchen, refrigerator, water heater, and other appliances. There’s also a convertible sofa bed, storage, tables, and stools. Perhaps the coolest feature is the winch-controlled folding front terrace for relaxing and entertaining. Every detail needed to learn how to build your own is included, and the full estimate stands at about $21,000. Not bad to get a house for about the price of a Honda Civic. Now, you just have to figure out where you want to live.
