1. 2 miljonit dollarit: Los Angeles Lakersi 2009. aasta NBA meistrivõistluste võiduparaad

2009. aasta majandusraskuste keskel kinnitas nende NBA meistrivõistluste võiduparaadile järsk hinnasilt muutus vastuoluliseks. Töötute arvu suurenemise ja linnaeelarve vähenemisega nõustusid Lakers maksma poole paraadi maksumusest. Ülejäänud miljon dollarit, mida on vaja paraadi rahastamiseks, tuli Los Angelese linnalt.

2. 1,2 miljonit dollarit: Dallas Mavericksi 2011. aasta NBA meistrivõistluste võiduparaad

Pole kahtlust, et Mavericksi omanik Mark Cuban on oma meeskonna esimese NBA tiitlivõidu üle vaimustuses - ta pakkus hiljuti meelsasti, et katab kogu võidupraadi kulud. Ja hinnangulise hinnasildiga umbes 1,2 miljonit dollarit on see keskmise inimese jaoks kopsakas summa. Kuid selle uhke mehe jaoks, kelle netoväärtus on hinnanguliselt 2,5 miljardit dollarit, on paraad vaid 0,72% tema eneseväärtusest-nagu see, mis oleks 72 dollari suurune õhtusöögi kaart kellelegi teisele. International Business Times.

3. 332 000 dollarit: New Orleans Saintsi 2010. aasta Super Bowli võiduparaad

Oma 2010. aasta Super Bowli tiitlivõidu auks korraldas New Orleans Saints võiduparaadi, mis maksis umbes 322 000 dollarit. Kuigi koguduse ametnikud esialgu tuim jagades meeskonnaga pidulike sündmuste jaoks kopsakaid summasid (lõppude lõpuks mängivad pühakud 10 miljoni dollari suurusel staadionil, mis asub linnast väljas), tundsid nad, et 95 000 dollari panustamine oli tark kasutamine linnarahast, mis muidu võiks majanduse arengut hoogustada.

Milleks siis raha kasutati? Sellest läks 2100 dollarit ühe laulu esitamiseks Poolaeg (Tõuse üles ja võta Crunk), mida tavaliselt mängib pärast enamikku maandumisi pühakute kodumängudel Ying Yang Twins. Jah, see on üks kallis laul.

4. 157 000 dollari suurune baar Tab: Bruins 2011. aasta Stanley karika võit

Kuigi eeldatakse, et iga Stanley karika võitja joob ihaldatud karikast šampanjat, läks Boston Bruins oma kohustustest kaugemale. võidu tähistamine sellel aastal. Tähistades võitu Foxwoodsi kasiino kuurordis MGM Grandi klubis Shrine, röstisid mängijad hiljuti võitu haruldase 100 000 dollari suuruse 30-liitrise (40 pudeliga) Ace of Spades “Midase” pudeli šampanjaga Armand de Brignacilt koos tohutute kogustega. Red Bull, 136 Bud Lightsi ja 57 pudelit vett. Lisage sellele 24 869 dollari suurune teenustasu ja saate endale 156 679,74 dollari riba (ja loodame, et üks tore näpunäide).

5. 110 000 dollari suurune baari vahekaart (neljale): Mavericksi 2011. aasta NBA tiitel

Mis puutub tänavu spordivõitude tähistamisse, siis Armand de Brignaci Ace of Spades Champagne on valitud jook. Bruins jõi seda, et tähistada oma Stanley karika võitu, ja Mavericksi omanik Kuuba hiljuti langes 90 000 dollarit 15-liitrise pudeli (20 pudelit) mullimaksu eest Miami klubis Liv Fiamiinebleau hotellis neljale oma mängijale… ja jättis personalile helde 20 000 dollari jootraha.

6. 100 000 dollari suurune baari vahekaart: NFL-i Bryant McKinnie tähtede pidu

NBA tähtede nädalavahetusel näeb kahtlemata palju suuri kulutusi tegevaid kuulsussportlasi, kuid sel aastal paistis eakaaslaste seas silma Minnesota Vikingi ründetapp Bryant McKinnie. Räppar Rick Rossi korraldatud Tähtede “Kick Off Party” peol tellis McKinnie, kes teenib 2011. aastal 4,9 miljonit dollarit, rohkem kui 15 pudelit šampanjat ja kogusid öiste pidustuste ajal 100 000 dollari suuruse baari.

7. 79 500 dollarit: Pittsburgh Steelersi 2009. aasta Super Bowli võiduparaad

Kuigi esialgu tundus, et Pittsburgh läheb ilma linnukeste paraadita kui nende kodulinna meeskond võitis 2009. aastal NFL -i meistrivõistlused, kattis riiklik toetus lõpuks meeskonna 79 500 dollari hinnasildi võiduparaad peeti kaks päeva pärast kuuendat võitu Super Bowl XLIII võistlusel. Oh, ja see ei tee sisaldab seda, mida osariik tegi (500 000 dollarit), et katta politseipatrullide kulud, et kontrollida pühapäeva õhtul pärast mängu mitmetes linnaosades asuvaid fänne.

8. 50 000 dollari sisustus: Kobe Bryanti Hollywoodi kuulsuste allee tähistamine

Kui tähistate tähtede nädalavahetust ja olete esimene sportlane, kellele kutsutakse oma käe- ja jalajäljed Hollywoodi kuulsuste alleele väljaspool Graumani Hiina teatrit jätma, visake parem üks meeldejääv pidu. Ja LA Lakersi mängija Kobe Bryant tegi seda just selle aasta alguses Tähtede nädalavahetusel, kui ta võõrustas Aasia-teemalist üritust eksklusiivses Boulevard 3 klubis, kus oli uhke turvalisus, eksklusiivne külaliste nimekiri ja ainuüksi temaatilise sisustuse eest 50 000 dollari suurune arve .


12 väljamõeldud pisikest maja ja miks need nii palju maksavad

Maapäev saabus eelmisel nädalal, avades tavapärase planeedisõbralike sündmuste tulva-alates vihmaveetünnivõistlustest ja lõpetades animeeritud Google'i doodle'iga, millel on lehterkala ja Jaapani makaak. Minu arvates on nende lugude hulgas kõige põnevam väike maja.

Finants- ja eluasemekriisi tagasilöögi toel on neil kodudel-tavaliselt 500 ruutjalga või väiksemad-hetk aega. Selle kuu alguses müüdi Charlotte'is läbi aegade esimene Tiny House'i konverents, mis meelitas ligi 170 osalejat. Pisikese maja pioneer Dee Williams, kes on viimase kümnendi veetnud 84-ruutjalga kodus sõbra tagahoovis, teeb praegu ringreisi mööda rahvust, et reklaamida oma mälestusteraamatut "Suur pisike". Isegi Savannahi kunsti- ja disainikolledži üliõpilased astuvad mängu, ehitades vana kooli parklasse 135-ruutjalga kodude kogu korruse.

Need kodud võivad olla keskkonnasõbralikud-nad sunnivad omanikke oma vara vähendama ja sageli vähem energiat kasutama-, kuid need pole just odavad. Pisikesed majad maksavad tavaliselt 200–400 dollarit ruutjalga kohta. Ruutjalga alusel on see palju kallim kui keskmine Ameerika kodu-ja väikesed kodud ei sisalda maad.

Võtke Tumbleweed Tiny House Company, mida peetakse pisikese majamaailma Cadillaciks. Tumbleweed hindab oma 161 ruutjalga "Elm" mudelit 66 000 dollari ehk umbes 410 dollari ruutjalga kohta. Canoe Bay teeb veelgi kulukama mudeli: selle 400 ruutjalga "Escape" on sõltuvalt omadustest vahemikus 79 000 kuni 124 900 dollarit (umbes 200 kuni 310 dollarit ruutjalga kohta). Isegi keskmise suurusega väikesed kodud maksavad 20 000–40 000 dollarit-nagu Wind River Custom Homes'i 204 ruutjalga bangalos 40 000 dollari eest. Üks ehitaja, Greg Parham, Rocky Mountain Tiny Houses, hindas uhkusega oma 136 ruutjalga "Boulderi" hinnaga 27 350 dollarit. Nagu Parham oma veebisaidil kuulutab, on kogukulu tunduvalt alla konkureerivate mudelite lõpliku hinnasildi.

Sellegipoolest on isegi suhteliselt odav Boulder umbes 200 dollarit ruutjalga kohta-hind on Zillow sõnul kõrgem kui keskmine koduhind 48 osariigis. Ainult California, kus 2014. aasta märtsis müüdava kodu keskmine hind oli 268 dollarit ruutjalga kohta, Hawaii (420 dollari ruutjalga) ja Washington, DC (428 dollarit) kannatavad kõrgemate ruutjalga kodukulude eest. Zillow näitab.

Kuid võib-olla jääb ruutmeetrile keskendumine tähelepanuta, kui (enamik) pisikestest majadest maksavad palju vähem kui tavalised. Kaubandusosakonna andmetel oli 2014. aasta märtsis müüdava kodu riiklik keskmine hind 169 800 dollarit, Zillowi sõnul 290 000 dollarit uute kodude jaoks. Need arvud ületavad isegi tunduvalt kallima pisikese maja kogumaksumust.

Ehitajate sõnul on väikeste kodude kõrge ruutjalga hinnasilt tingitud hunniku kallite, kahanenud funktsioonide-veesoojendi, külmkapi, pliidi, tualeti, konditsioneeri-pakkimisest pisikesesse ruumi. "Kui lisaksime veel 100 ruutjalga, läheksid meie kulud alla," juhib tähelepanu Tumbleweed Tiny House Company president Steve Weissman. "Meil peab ikkagi olema vannituba, köök ja kõik mehaanilised seadmed."

Igatahes on pooldajate sõnul ühes elamise eesmärk lihtsam elu. "Et olla võlgadest väljas, elada oma võimaluste piires ja nautida oma tööd," ütleb Kent Griswold, kes juhib Tiny House Blogi. Esimene blogija, kes kajastas pisikest majaliikumist, töötab Griswold nüüd täiskohaga oma ajaveebis, mis teenib talle kuuekohalise sissetuleku. Ta märgib, et enamik tema lugejatest on 50ndates eluaastates naised, kellele järgnevad mõlemast soost inimesed vanuses 20–30.

Usin pisike koduehitaja muidugi suudab kulud madalal hoida. Oma mälestusi praegu reklaamiv kirjanik Williams ehitas oma pisikese kodu 10 000 dollari eest 2003. aastal. Vastavalt tinylife.com ja Tiny House Conference'i Ryan Mitchelli andmetele on keskmine kulu ise seda teha 23 000 dollarit.

Neli aastat tagasi elasid Andrew ja Gabriella Morrison nelja magamistoaga unistuste majas, olles stressis selle ülalpidamise kulude ja töö eest. Täna elavad nad koos oma kahe koera ja 14-aastase tütrega 5 aakril Oregoni osariigis Ashlandi mägedes. Nad ehitasid ja sisustasid oma 207 ruutjalga pisikese maja 33 000 dollari eest. "Ainuke asi, mida see ei kata, olid madratsid ja hambaharjad," ütleb Gabriella Morrison.

Morrisonid ei koonerdanud neile oluliste detailidega, sealhulgas täismõõdus köök täismõõdus seadmetega, tavaline vannituba ja valamu, trepid magamislauale ja piisavalt ruumi oma kodukontorite jaoks, kus nad mõlemad töötavad ajaveeb, tinyhousebuild.com. (Väärib märkimist, et nende 17-aastane poeg on tavaliselt eemal Colorado internaatkoolis ja et igal lapsel on privaatne maja, kui nad vajavad privaatsust. Sellegipoolest ütlevad Morrisonid enamasti oma laste teismelised hangoutid toimuvad peamajas, mitte eriti väikestes majades.)

"Kuna me oleme väikeses ruumis, ei kao keegi tagumisse külalistetuppa ega teise peretuba suletud uste taha," ütleb Andrew Morrison. "Meie suhtlustase ja peresuhted on palju tihedamad ja sügavamad kui kunagi varem. Ma ei oska midagi tähtsamat välja mõelda."

84-ruutjalga maja Williams ei ela kellegagi koos, kuid tundub, et väike elamine on võrdselt tasuv. "Parim osa väikeses majas elamisest on avastada, et saan nüüd töötada osalise tööajaga," ütles Williams FORBESile. "Ei ole kopsakaid hüpoteegi- ega kommunaalarveid, krediitkaardivõlga, mis on seotud ahju parandamisega või uue diivani ostmisega, et täita tühimik elutoas. Elutoas pole tühimikku. Nüüd on mul aega veeta sõpradega ja keset päeva pikale jalutuskäigule. Mul on aega oma naabri nelja -aastasega koos hängida ja näidata talle, kuidas aias päevalilleseemneid istutada. See on aja kingitus tehingu parim osa. "

Zillow ja Trulia aitasid FORBESil leida mõnda lõbusat pisikest maja, mis on praegu turul. Vaadake neid selle postituse alguses oleval slaidiseansil.

Pisikese maja pioneer Dee Williams, kes on viimase kümnendi veetnud 84-ruutjalga kodus sõbra tagahoovis, teeb praegu ringreisi mööda rahvust, et reklaamida oma mälestusteraamatut "Suur pisike". Isegi Savannahi kunsti- ja disainikolledži üliõpilased astuvad mängu, ehitades vana kooli parklasse 135-ruutjalga kodude kogu korruse.

See kodu võib olla keskkonnasõbralik-nad sunnivad omanikke oma vara vähendama ja sageli vähem energiat kasutama-, kuid need pole just odavad. Pisikesed majad maksavad tavaliselt 200–400 dollarit ruutjalga kohta. Ruutjalga alusel on see palju kallim kui keskmine Ameerika kodu-ja väikesed kodud ei sisalda maad.

Võtke Tumbleweed Tiny House Company, mida peetakse pisikese majamaailma Cadillaciks. Tumbleweed hindab oma 161 ruutjalga "Elm" mudelit 66 000 dollari ehk umbes 410 dollari ruutjalga kohta. Canoe Bay teeb veelgi kulukama mudeli: selle 400 ruutjalga "Escape" on sõltuvalt omadustest vahemikus 79 000 kuni 124 900 dollarit (umbes 200 kuni 310 dollarit ruutjalga kohta). Isegi keskmise suurusega väikesed kodud maksavad 20 000–40 000 dollarit-nagu Wind River Custom Homes'i 204 ruutjalga bangalos 40 000 dollari eest. Üks ehitaja, Greg Parham, Rocky Mountain Tiny Houses, hindas uhkusega oma 136 ruutjalga "Boulderi" hinnaga 27 350 dollarit. Nagu Parham oma veebisaidil kuulutab, on kogukulu tunduvalt alla konkureerivate mudelite lõpliku hinnasildi.

Sellegipoolest on isegi suhteliselt odav Boulder umbes 200 dollarit ruutjalga kohta-hind on Zillow sõnul kõrgem kui keskmine koduhind 48 osariigis. Ainult California, kus 2014. aasta märtsis müüdava kodu keskmine hind oli 268 dollarit ruutjalga kohta, Hawaii (420 dollari ruutjalga) ja Washington, DC (428 dollarit) kannatavad kõrgemate ruutmeetri kodukulude eest. Zillow näitab.

Kuid võib-olla jääb ruutmeetrile keskendumine tähelepanuta, kui (enamik) pisikestest majadest maksavad palju vähem kui tavalised. Kaubandusosakonna andmetel oli 2014. aasta märtsis müüdava kodu riiklik keskmine hind 169 800 dollarit, Zillowi sõnul 290 000 dollarit uute kodude jaoks. Need arvud ületavad isegi tunduvalt kallima pisikese maja kogumaksumust.

Ehitajate sõnul on väikeste kodude kõrge ruutjalga hinnasilt tingitud hunniku kallite, kahanenud funktsioonide-veesoojendi, külmkapi, pliidi, tualeti, kliimaseadme-pakkimisest väikesesse ruumi. "Kui lisaksime veel 100 ruutjalga, läheksid meie kulud alla," juhib tähelepanu Tumbleweed Tiny House Company president Steve Weissman. "Meil peab ikkagi olema vannituba, köök ja kõik mehaanilised seadmed."

Igatahes on pooldajate sõnul ühes elamise eesmärk lihtsam elu. "Et olla võlgadest väljas, elada oma võimaluste piires ja nautida oma tööd," ütleb Kent Griswold, kes juhib Tiny House Blogi. Esimene blogija, kes kajastas pisikest majaliikumist, töötab Griswold nüüd täiskohaga oma ajaveebis, mis teenib talle kuuekohalise sissetuleku. Ta märgib, et enamik tema lugejatest on 50ndates eluaastates naised, kellele järgnevad mõlemast soost inimesed vanuses 20–30.

Usin pisike koduehitaja muidugi suudab kulud madalal hoida. Oma mälestusi praegu reklaamiv kirjanik Williams ehitas oma pisikese kodu 10 000 dollari eest 2003. aastal. Vastavalt tinylife.com ja Tiny House Conference'i Ryan Mitchelli andmetele on keskmine kulu ise seda teha 23 000 dollarit.

Neli aastat tagasi elasid Andrew ja Gabriella Morrison nelja magamistoaga unistuste majas, olles stressis selle ülalpidamise kulude ja töö eest. Täna elavad nad koos oma kahe koera ja 14-aastase tütrega 5 aakril Oregoni osariigis Ashlandi mägedes. Nad ehitasid ja sisustasid oma 207 ruutjalga pisikese maja 33 000 dollari eest. "Ainuke asi, mida see ei kata, olid madratsid ja hambaharjad," ütleb Gabriella Morrison.

Morrisonid ei koonerdanud nende jaoks oluliste detailidega, sealhulgas täismõõdus köök täismõõdus seadmetega, tavaline vannituba ja valamu, trepid magamislauale ja piisavalt ruumi oma kodukontorite jaoks, kus nad mõlemad töötavad ajaveeb, tinyhousebuild.com. (Väärib märkimist, et nende 17-aastane poeg on tavaliselt eemal Colorado internaatkoolis ja et igal lapsel on privaatne maja, kui nad vajavad privaatsust. Sellegipoolest ütlevad Morrisonid enamasti oma laste teismelised hangoutid toimuvad peamajas, mitte eriti väikestes majades.)

"Kuna me oleme väikeses ruumis, ei kao keegi tagumisse külalistetuppa ega teise peretuba suletud uste taha," ütleb Andrew Morrison. "Meie suhtlustase ja peresuhted on palju tihedamad ja sügavamad kui kunagi varem. Ma ei oska midagi tähtsamat välja mõelda."

84-ruutjalga maja Williams ei ela kellegagi koos, kuid tundub, et väike elamine on võrdselt tasuv. "Parim osa väikeses majas elamisest on avastada, et saan nüüd töötada osalise tööajaga," ütles Williams FORBESile. "Ei ole kopsakaid hüpoteegi- ega kommunaalarveid, krediitkaardivõlga, mis on seotud ahju parandamisega või uue diivani ostmisega, et täita tühimik elutoas. Elutoas pole tühimikku. Nüüd on mul aega veeta sõpradega ja keset päeva pikale jalutuskäigule. Mul on aega oma naabrinaise nelja -aastasega hängida ja näidata talle, kuidas aias päevalilleseemneid istutada. See on aja kingitus tehingu parim osa. "

Zillow ja Trulia aitasid FORBESil leida mõnda lõbusat pisikest maja, mis on praegu turul. Vaadake neid selle postituse alguses oleval slaidiseansil.


12 väljamõeldud pisikest maja ja miks need nii palju maksavad

Maapäev saabus eelmisel nädalal, avades tavapärase planeedisõbralike sündmuste tulva-alates vihmaveetünnivõistlustest ja lõpetades animeeritud Google'i doodle'iga, millel on lehterkala ja Jaapani makaak. Minu arvates on nende lugude hulgas kõige põnevam väike maja.

Finants- ja eluasemekriisi tagasilöögi toel on neil kodudel-tavaliselt 500 ruutjalga või väiksemad-hetk aega. Selle kuu alguses müüdi Charlotte'is läbi aegade esimene Tiny House'i konverents, mis meelitas ligi 170 osalejat. Pisikese maja pioneer Dee Williams, kes on viimase kümnendi veetnud 84-ruutjalga kodus sõbra tagahoovis, teeb praegu ringreisi mööda rahvust, et reklaamida oma mälestusteraamatut "Suur pisike". Isegi Savannahi kunsti- ja disainikolledži üliõpilased astuvad mängu, ehitades vana kooli parklasse 135-ruutjalga kodude kogu korruse.

Need kodud võivad olla keskkonnasõbralikud-nad sunnivad omanikke oma vara vähendama ja sageli vähem energiat kasutama-, kuid need pole just odavad. Pisikesed majad maksavad tavaliselt 200–400 dollarit ruutjalga kohta. Ruutjalga alusel on see palju kallim kui keskmine Ameerika kodu-ja väikesed kodud ei sisalda maad.

Canoe Bay teeb veelgi kulukama mudeli: selle 400 ruutjalga "Escape" on sõltuvalt omadustest vahemikus 79 000 kuni 124 900 dollarit (umbes 200 kuni 310 dollarit ruutjalga kohta).

Nagu Parham oma veebisaidil kuulutab, on kogukulu tunduvalt alla konkureerivate mudelite lõpliku hinnasildi.

Sellegipoolest on isegi suhteliselt odav Boulder umbes 200 dollarit ruutjalga kohta-hind on Zillow sõnul kõrgem kui keskmine koduhind 48 osariigis. Only California, where the median price of a home for sale in March 2014 was $268 per square foot, Hawaii (at $420 per square foot) and Washington, D.C. ($428) suffer from higher per-square-foot home costs, data provided by Zillow shows.

But perhaps a focus on per-square-foot misses the point, when (most of) the tiny houses cost so much less than regular ones. The national median price of a home for sale March 2014 was $169,800, according to Zillow, $290,000 for new homes, according to the Commerce department. Those figures are still well above the total cost of even the most expensive tiny house.

Builders say the high per-square-foot price tag for tiny homes is due to packing a bunch of expensive, shrunk-down features--water heater, refrigerator, stove, toilet, air conditioner--in a teeny space. "If we added another 100 square feet our costs would go down," points out Steve Weissman, president of Tumbleweed Tiny House Company. "We still have to have a bathroom, a kitchen, and all of the mechanicals."

Anyway, the goal of living in one, advocates claim, is a simpler life. "To be out of debt, living within your means, and enjoying your job," says Kent Griswold, who runs Tiny House Blog. The first blogger to cover the tiny house movement, Griswold now works full-time on his blog, which earns him a six-figure income. The majority of his readers, he notes, are women in their 50s, followed by people of both genders between age 20 and 30.

A diligent tiny home builder, of course, can keep costs down. Williams, the author now promoting her memoir, built her tiny home for $10,000 in 2003. According to Ryan Mitchell of the tinylife.com and the Tiny House Conference, the average cost to do it yourself is $23,000.

Four years ago, Andrew and Gabriella Morrison were living in a four-bedroom dream house, stressed out by the costs and work of maintaining it. Today they live with their two dogs and their 14-year-old daughter on five acres in the hills outside Ashland , Oregon. They built--and furnished--their 207-square-foot tiny house for $33,000. "The only thing it doesn’t cover was the mattreses and the toothbrushes," Gabriella Morrison says.

The Morrisons didn't scrimp on details they cared about, including a full-sized kitchen with full-size appliances, a regular bathroom and sink, stairs to their sleeping loft, and room enough for their home offices, where they both work on their blog, tinyhousebuild.com. (It's worth noting that their 17-year-old son is usually away at boarding school in Colorado, and that each of the kids have a teeny house of their own for when they need privacy. Nonetheless, the Morrisons say most of the time their kids' teenage hangouts take place in the main house rather than the extra tiny houses.)

"Because we’re in a small space, there is no disappearing to the back guest room or the second family room behind closed doors," says Andrew Morrison. "Our level of communication and family relationships are so much closer and deeper than they’ve ever been. I can’t think of anything more important than that."

Williams, of the 84-square-foot house, doesn't live with anyone but seems to find small living equally rewarding. "The best part of living in a little house is discovering that I can now work part time," Williams told FORBES. "There’s no hefty mortgage or utility bills, no credit card debt tied to fixing the furnace or purchasing a new couch to fill the void in the living room. there is no void in the living room. Now I’ve got time to hang out with my friends, and to go for a long walk in the middle of the day. I have time to hang out with my neighbor’s four year old, and show him how to plant sunflower seeds in the garden. It's the gift of time that’s the best part of the deal."

Zillow and Trulia helped FORBES find some fun tiny houses currently on the market. Check them out in the slideshow at the beginning of this post.


12 Tricked-Out Tiny Houses, And Why They Cost So Much

Earth Day arrived last week, ushering in the usual flood of planet-friendly events--from rain barrel contests to the animated Google doodle featuring the puffer fish and Japanese macaque. Among the most fascinating of the stories, by my count, is the tiny house.

Fueled by backlash from the financial and housing crisis, these homes--typically sized 500 square feet or smaller--are having a moment. Earlier this month the first ever Tiny House Conference in Charlotte sold out, attracting some 170 attendees. Tiny house pioneer Dee Williams, who has spent the last decade in an 84-square-foot home in a friend's backyard, is currently touring the nation to promote her memoir "The Big Tiny." Even students at the Savannah College of Art and Design are getting into the game, building an entire floor of 135-square-foot homes inside an old school parking lot.

These home may be environmentally friendly--they force owners to reduce their possessions and, often, to use less power--but they're not exactly cheap. Tiny houses typically cost between $200 to $400 per square foot. On a square foot basis, that's far pricier than the average American home--and tiny homes don't include land.

Take the Tumbleweed Tiny House Company, considered the Cadillac of the tiny house world. Tumbleweed prices its 161-square-foot "Elm" model at $66,000, or about $410-per-square-foot. Canoe Bay makes an even costlier model: its 400-square-foot "Escape" ranges from $79,000 to $124,900 (about $200 to $310 per square foot) depending on features. Even midrange tiny homes cost between $20,000 and $40,000--as in the 204-square-foot bungalow by Wind River Custom Homes for $40,000. One builder, Greg Parham of Rocky Mountain Tiny Houses, proudly priced his 136-square-foot "Boulder" at $27,350. As Parham declares on his web site, the total cost is well below the final price tag of competing models.

Still, even the relatively inexpensive Boulder amounts to about $200 per square foot--a price point higher than the median home price in 48 states, according to Zillow . Only California, where the median price of a home for sale in March 2014 was $268 per square foot, Hawaii (at $420 per square foot) and Washington, D.C.

"Our level of communication and family relationships are so much closer and deeper than they’ve ever been. I can’t think of anything more important than that."

Williams, of the 84-square-foot house, doesn't live with anyone but seems to find small living equally rewarding. "The best part of living in a little house is discovering that I can now work part time," Williams told FORBES. "There’s no hefty mortgage or utility bills, no credit card debt tied to fixing the furnace or purchasing a new couch to fill the void in the living room. there is no void in the living room. Now I’ve got time to hang out with my friends, and to go for a long walk in the middle of the day. I have time to hang out with my neighbor’s four year old, and show him how to plant sunflower seeds in the garden. It's the gift of time that’s the best part of the deal."

12 Tricked-Out Tiny Houses, And Why They Cost So Much

Earth Day arrived last week, ushering in the usual flood of planet-friendly events--from rain barrel contests to the animated Google doodle featuring the puffer fish and Japanese macaque. Among the most fascinating of the stories, by my count, is the tiny house.

Fueled by backlash from the financial and housing crisis, these homes--typically sized 500 square feet or smaller--are having a moment. Earlier this month the first ever Tiny House Conference in Charlotte sold out, attracting some 170 attendees. Tiny house pioneer Dee Williams, who has spent the last decade in an 84-square-foot home in a friend's backyard, is currently touring the nation to promote her memoir "The Big Tiny." Even students at the Savannah College of Art and Design are getting into the game, building an entire floor of 135-square-foot homes inside an old school parking lot.

These home may be environmentally friendly--they force owners to reduce their possessions and, often, to use less power--but they're not exactly cheap. Tiny houses typically cost between $200 to $400 per square foot. On a square foot basis, that's far pricier than the average American home--and tiny homes don't include land.

Take the Tumbleweed Tiny House Company, considered the Cadillac of the tiny house world. Tumbleweed prices its 161-square-foot "Elm" model at $66,000, or about $410-per-square-foot. Canoe Bay makes an even costlier model: its 400-square-foot "Escape" ranges from $79,000 to $124,900 (about $200 to $310 per square foot) depending on features. Even midrange tiny homes cost between $20,000 and $40,000--as in the 204-square-foot bungalow by Wind River Custom Homes for $40,000. One builder, Greg Parham of Rocky Mountain Tiny Houses, proudly priced his 136-square-foot "Boulder" at $27,350. As Parham declares on his web site, the total cost is well below the final price tag of competing models.

Still, even the relatively inexpensive Boulder amounts to about $200 per square foot--a price point higher than the median home price in 48 states, according to Zillow . Only California, where the median price of a home for sale in March 2014 was $268 per square foot, Hawaii (at $420 per square foot) and Washington, D.C. ($428) suffer from higher per-square-foot home costs, data provided by Zillow shows.

But perhaps a focus on per-square-foot misses the point, when (most of) the tiny houses cost so much less than regular ones. The national median price of a home for sale March 2014 was $169,800, according to Zillow, $290,000 for new homes, according to the Commerce department. Those figures are still well above the total cost of even the most expensive tiny house.

Builders say the high per-square-foot price tag for tiny homes is due to packing a bunch of expensive, shrunk-down features--water heater, refrigerator, stove, toilet, air conditioner--in a teeny space. "If we added another 100 square feet our costs would go down," points out Steve Weissman, president of Tumbleweed Tiny House Company. "We still have to have a bathroom, a kitchen, and all of the mechanicals."

Anyway, the goal of living in one, advocates claim, is a simpler life. "To be out of debt, living within your means, and enjoying your job," says Kent Griswold, who runs Tiny House Blog. The first blogger to cover the tiny house movement, Griswold now works full-time on his blog, which earns him a six-figure income. The majority of his readers, he notes, are women in their 50s, followed by people of both genders between age 20 and 30.

A diligent tiny home builder, of course, can keep costs down. Williams, the author now promoting her memoir, built her tiny home for $10,000 in 2003. According to Ryan Mitchell of the tinylife.com and the Tiny House Conference, the average cost to do it yourself is $23,000.

Four years ago, Andrew and Gabriella Morrison were living in a four-bedroom dream house, stressed out by the costs and work of maintaining it. Today they live with their two dogs and their 14-year-old daughter on five acres in the hills outside Ashland , Oregon. They built--and furnished--their 207-square-foot tiny house for $33,000. "The only thing it doesn’t cover was the mattreses and the toothbrushes," Gabriella Morrison says.

The Morrisons didn't scrimp on details they cared about, including a full-sized kitchen with full-size appliances, a regular bathroom and sink, stairs to their sleeping loft, and room enough for their home offices, where they both work on their blog, tinyhousebuild.com. (It's worth noting that their 17-year-old son is usually away at boarding school in Colorado, and that each of the kids have a teeny house of their own for when they need privacy. Nonetheless, the Morrisons say most of the time their kids' teenage hangouts take place in the main house rather than the extra tiny houses.)

"Because we’re in a small space, there is no disappearing to the back guest room or the second family room behind closed doors," says Andrew Morrison.
