In the previous post, I gave a list of links to the tiny home builders that I’ve most enjoyed spending hours looking at.

However, if I were to attempt a point-by-point comparison between them all, I would bore you to death. You may be bored to death, already.

I will discuss my three favorites — Tiny Heirloom, Brevard Tiny House, and Perch & Nest. I know I said in the previous post I was going to look at Liberation, but it’s my blog, and I changed my mind.

This first comparison focuses on cost. In the next post, I’ll start to look at these:

  • Base Model Price
  • Free Shipping/Delivery (or not!)
  • Degree of Furnishing Included*

All three models have my non-negotiables:

  • Fridge
  • Washer/Dryer Combo
  • Loft sleeping
  • Stairs (for our pups!)
  • 24′ in length
  • On wheels

A common thread through the advice I’ve read is to make sure the Tiny Home meets your minimum needs. Make sure the kitchen has the appliances that apply to your life. I cook frequently, so a stove, an oven, and enough counter space are essential. Some models of Tiny Homes don’t include more than a mini-fridge!

As we search for a Tiny Home as our primary residence, we are trying to keep our daily habits in mind. It’s really easy to get worked up and excited about this potential bundle of cuteness making its way into our life, but Tiny Home living isn’t for everyone. For example, my mother can’t handle small spaces, and the the extreme charm of a Tiny House isn’t going to change that.

What are the non-negotiables in your perfect Tiny House?
