I wouldn’t even consider looking into one of those houses that you mentioned above. The plans alone for some of them cost in the range of $500!

I’ve seen these things on tv documentaries before and here that they cost around $50k to build! That is straight insanity!

You can build a shipping container house for around $2k.

There are also hay bail houses, log cabins, geo-domes, and all kind of other alternatives that you can build on the cheap using stuff that is already around you anyway.

I’ve even considered getting an old school bus, and turning it into a mobile home.
