How we can help

Why pay 80K for a tiny house?  The home shows that boast this price range aren’t giving you all the information.  Classic Buildings specializes in portable buildings with a priority on building the best storage sheds available. Years ago, storage sheds and other quality outbuildings, i.e. small cabins, etc. became popular as living space. Living in a tiny house might seem like a trend, when in fact people have been living in small portable houses for a while now.

Our reputation of building the best portable buildings and structures, is well known. The quality and craftsmanship is truly second to none. Every homeowner needs outdoor storage. Our family is Amish and we appreciate true Amish quality and craftsmanship. Others can say they craft their buildings using Amish standards and represent their products as such, yet they are not from a true Amish builder.

Do others know Amish craftsmanship, why of course they do. Are we the only ones that offer the ‘highest quality’ buildings? In all sincerity, others can capture an essence of what they do, but they will never duplicate our team. Our team is our heart. Our team of quality workers, employees and associates are top of the line and super-dedicated to a company that truly sells the highest quality buildings available. They can copy our buildings but not our family and our team family.

Buying Tiny Houses – Reasons for the trend of living in a tiny house

Buying tiny houses are popular for a host of reasons. With about 1/3 of adults within the US now living with relatives or in a room-share, it appears that people can not afford to buy a home or are being put off from buying for other reasons. Your tiny house doesn’t have to be on wheels, or a small 250 square foot home. You can order a 14 x 20 structure or room, if its lofted for a bedroom or bedrooms above, your square footage can be as much as 540 usable square feet and bigger than a New York apartment costing thousands per month.

Classic Buildings also offers larger structures that would still constitute a smaller home. A 14 x 40 if lofted makes for a nice size small home that anyone can afford to buy.


Buying a Tiny House – A good option for first time buyers

Whether it be the fact that potential buyers are struggling with student debt or that many are single and can not afford the cost alone, house buying among adults is a much different proposition to what it was, even 20 years ago.

That being said, people tend to consume themselves with finding the ‘perfect home’, the home that they see advertised on the television, with 4 bedrooms, a huge garden and garage for two vehicles. Inevitably, this is out of their price range and that is when the option of living with relatives or in a room-share begins to take hold.

However, there is a new, alternative way for people to own their own homes. One that is both easier on the pocket and also easier on the eye, they are known as ‘Tiny Houses’. First time homeowners are using this option, growing their home, adding on a little at a time. A tiny home on a piece of property with a detached guest house and a detached storage shed is an awesome way to have all the space you need without the upfront cost of home ownership! In addition, if you need more space to store addition items it is very affortable to purchase utility sheds to go in hand with your tiny house.

With the cost of almost $80,000.00 for a 250 square foot tiny house, there are far better options and ways to save nearly, if not more than half the price on more usable space. In fact, in my small town in Missouri you can purchase a large 1500 square foot home for less than 40K, why spend 80K on a fraction of the space, other than to save money on utilities? It just doesn’t make sense.

For those of you who live in larger, more expensive areas you might be paying as much as two thousand per month for rented space. In Missouri the average cost of rent is 650.00 per month so choose your locations wisely.

Tiny Houses Are Good For The Environment

In addition to the fact that tiny houses can save property buyers money, they are also significantly better for the environment than running a 3 or 4 bedroom property. Using less energy, such as gas and electricity, a tiny home can help reduce the negative impact we are having on the world and this is a key reason as to why many people are choosing to live in them.

Tiny Houses As A Second Home

Tiny houses can also make the perfect holiday home. Imagine being able to go on holiday and actually taking your tiny house with you, well this is fast becoming a reality. Instead of having to spend hours on the internet, trying to find a hotel that is within budget or close to where you want to be, you can use a trailer and this makes the whole process easier and more relaxing. At the end of each day, you can return to your house and this will save a great deal of money.

Of course, having a small space to live in, means that there is not as much room to store or horde items and this is a positive step for many people. Being able to remove items that are simply not required to be able to live a good life, means that tiny houses can assist people in getting back to what is most important to them. Coupled with this, is the fact that the time it takes to clean a tiny home in comparison to a larger house is huge. There can not be many people in the world today who look forward to a day of cleaning around the home but with a tiny home, cleaning and tidying takes no time at all. This frees up time for the more important, fun things that you want to do with your life.

Portable buildings are no longer being used simply for storage or business purposes. With the style and quality being created by people such as, these buildings are fast becoming the best way for people to live. Tiny houses are the future of ideal living.
