LOWE’S buyers have found a cheap tiny house that can be assembled by two people.
The Lowe family home is selling for just $6,519.
The Lowe’s offering is 12 feet by 24 feet with large, high ceilings.
Lowe’s points out that the structure of the tiny home is fully included in the price.
“Everything is pre-cut and ready to assemble without additional cutting,” the company reiterates in the item’s listing.
The floor of the house is included – the homeowner must erect the structure on a level surface.
Lowe’s says the house’s construction is “durable and safe,” adding that the materials are resistant to fungus and mildew.
Clients need to add clapboards, drip edging, and paint to enhance the home’s interior and exterior.
The outer walls are primed white on delivery.
BUILD TINY HOUSES
Lowe has made it clear that construction is not a one-person job.
The company provides the screws, latches, handles, and nails required for construction, but recommends that two people be present when receiving the shipping containers.
“When the pallet reaches the customer’s local terminal, the trucking company will contact the customer to arrange delivery,” the company wrote.
“The customer is responsible for providing at least two people upon delivery to help unload the kit.”
From there, the customer has the shell of a structure that can be used to create a tiny home.
Customers must provide interior design, plumbing, electrical connections, land and energy sources for modern indoor living.
Popularity of Tiny Homes
Tiny homes are becoming increasingly popular as a housing solution in an increasingly inaccessible real estate market.
The trend followed years of rising house prices and declining stocks of low- to mid-range homes.
A financial expert estimated that homeowners can build a tiny house for $25,000 to $35,000.
The average American paid $505,300 for a new home in the second quarter of 2023 — over 90 percent more expensive than the expert’s highest estimate.
Still, many homes find it difficult to conform to local zoning laws as states often have outdated laws prohibiting the housing solution.
The money expert recommends building a tiny home in North Carolina, Florida, Colorado, Texas, California or Oregon because of updated zoning laws there.
