When You Need A Mobile Home But Hate Mobile Homes | The Canadian Mini Home

Pre-fab homes have been around for a while now, but here’s one worth watching on video. This design is called Mini Home, and as you can see, it’s well named. The design is basically a well-insulated trailer, with some smart design choices and green building materials. This trailer isn’t too different from a regular trailer you might find on a Texas lot, except for the materials and tasteful design. The one big difference is the cost. This trailer is coming in at $400 plus a square foot, which is amazingly high, even for a specialty trailer.

Here in L.A. the average house is coming in at $200 to $250 per square foot on the West Side, and the luxury ones are coming in at $350 to $500, depending on land cost and finishes. So, $400 for a small box is a lot. But with the economics aside, the idea is great and the intention is amazing. So, we hope the price can drop and the design expanded. We would love to see more sections working together to make up a whole house. Maybe two or three modules.

After the jump to the next page, there is a video by HGTV about the mini home. You get a full tour.

    I’ve followed this home for a while, and it’s amazing. It’s pricey, sure-but so is all housing, for this member of the working poor. As for this quote:

    “We would love to see more sections working together to make up a whole house…”

    Ummm…it is a whole house. Just not a house for everyone.
