$100k 400sqft Tiny Cabin: Is it Worth The Price?

Tiny Cabin

OK, This is a beautiful tiny cabin, with gorgeous interior and exterior. But $100k for a 400 square foot tiny cabin? That seems extremely expensive for such a small unit. Lets see what we get for our $100k.

The exterior has a gorgeous rustic look and feel, complete with porch area and over hanging eaves. The fit and finish is high quality and yes, impressive.

The beauty doesn’t stop on the outside. The interior is phenomenally pleasing to look at in wonderfully aesthetic pine tongue and groove walls ceiling and floors, presenting a  warm and cozy feel that isn’t lost on the price.
