Tiny House Kit For Under $1,000 Is The Perfect Home

We’re betting you’ve already noticed the tiny house trend is still going full speed ahead. Tiny houses offer inexpensive solutions to leave a smaller footprint on the environment, simplify your life and detach from the tempting draw of over-consumption, and have your own independence that even a condo or high-rise apartment can’t offer.

For some, tiny houses are a simple way to bring family closer together. For others, they’re a much-needed source of extra income. For others yet, they’re a life-saving shelter that’s keeping them from homelessness.

No matter what type of tiny house bug you’ve caught, you’re going to love this unique looking and totally adaptable space. Introducing Arched Cabins! Manufactured in Texas and delivered nationwide, these tiny houses come with all the materials and instructions you need to build your shelter in as little as 6 weeks!

Arched Cabins are built to be durable in American summers and winters, with materials that will last long. The design also lends itself to be environmentally friendly:

We believe in being green! Our Super Span roof paneling has a 40 year warranty, is made from 32-50% recycled steel and comes in 23 Energy Star rated colors! We encourage the use of alternative energy systems and the shape of our cabins lends itself to water collection! All of our cabins come with a minimum of R13 insulation for energy conservation.”

Before You Build

Tiny house laws in the United States can vary by state, county, and city! If you’re interested in the benefits of tiny house living as a way to simplify your lifestyle, as a cute mini vacation, or even as a “granny pod”, you’ll need to be aware of the zoning laws and building codes in your area.

For example, in Illinois, tiny houses are permitted in campgrounds, RV parks, and private property. If they’re on wheels, they must be registered as a recreational trailer and abide by trailer regulations. And they’re completely banned in Chicago. For an overview of the tiny house laws in your state, check out Tiny Society. For more details, go to your local city hall.
