"Purple Palace" Tiny House
Lets talk affordable tiny homes.... as a custom builder we've done some really high-end builds, but custom doesn't have to mean expensive. In this build (called the Purple Palace), we worked closely with the client to reduce costs without compromising on quality, and keeping options open for the client to add features later as funds become available. Tips for keeping costs low - limit the amount of windows (just enough to create adequate ventilation), limit the amount of built-in custom cabinetry, and do your own painting - this is an easy DIY job that can save thousands! Wondering why it’s called the Purple Palace when there's not a single hint of purple in the photos? Our client is DIY'ing her paintwork, and these photos were taken before she took ownership. We’ve been told that the bathroom door and some other accents have been painted a vibrant purple, so hopefully we can share some updated photos in the future in all her purple glory!
