Tips to build your Tiny House on a budget:

1. Do all the labor work yourself. Watch YouTube videos to help you build your tiny house. Ask your friends for help.

2. Learn to love second-hand materials. Check out your local second-hand building supply stores for good deals.

3. Buy a used trailer frame and other materials from Craigslist. You may even find vendors selling brand new parts on Craigslist for cheaper than the store price.

4. Check the free section of Craigslist. Some contractors may be willing to give away leftover materials from a finished project for free.

5. Start collecting your materials before building your tiny house. Write down a list of materials needed for the project.

6. Frame your building to fit your windows. Windows are incredibly expensive, so consider buying them first and then frame your walls to fit them.
