And Did We Mention How Much It Cost? All For $700!

Photographer Alla Ponomareva and her husband had some time one summer, and they wanted to build a tiny house with their own hands. They stumbled upon a particular set of house plans created by Derek “Deek” Diedricksen that they liked, and then decided to go ahead with the project. This is not the first time for the couple to build a tiny home.

The original price estimate from the house plans was $1500, but they were able to keep the costs down to $700 by using upcycled materials from previous projects.

They assembled the 80-square feet floor in their barn, and borrowed a tractor to carry the base over to the build site, somewhere in the forests near Missoula, Montana. Next, the walls and windows were put up, with the siding stained and painted with an aged finish. They wanted to make the interiors stand out, so they went with coral and mint green. Two small beds, custom mattresses and linens were also a part of the plan.

What makes this tiny A-frame rather unique is the movable see-through wall that opens up to a nice little patio. One can also gaze at the stars while in bed in this dreamy dwelling.

“As the sun dips below the mountains, the solar lights illuminate the hammocks and the stars slowly start to peak through the tree tops. If you haven’t seen the stars in Montana, then you haven’t truly seen the stars,” says Ponomareva. Sounds inviting.
