vancouver tiny house

A Craigslist ad WAS offering up this 250 sq ft studio for a mere $20,000. In a city with an average home price of $1 million, that’s a real deal!

The tiny home was converted from a former workspace/garage dating back to 1952. It measures 12′ x 24′ and the owner says will likely last another 100 years.

So what’s the catch? You had to move it. The ad is no longer active so maybe it actually sold!

The home is currently illegal under Vancouver by-laws which stipulates that homes be no smaller than 398 sq. ft.. There is an exception for laneway houses, which are allowed to be a minimum of 280 sq. ft. The owner  offered to arrange for the move, and even set up a foundation at the new site. The buyer’s obligations are to pay for the home, and its associated logistics.(power, water, etc.)

For a small home, it offers plenty of amenities:

“The interior design has been very well thought out and it is arguably the most comfortable tiny house you can find, there is no sacrifice in any way. The interior space is approximately 250 sq ft. Everything is custom. The loft bed fits a double mattress, under the bed has massive storage, a full slide out closet and the stairs pull out as your dresser. The kitchen feels larger than a full size kitchen and has a Miele cooktop and GE dishwasher. All contents of the house are included: fridge,46″ TV, Blomberg washer and dryer, etc.”
