The Upfront expenses of building a Tiny House:

Though it may seem that upfront expenses are on par with a traditional home in some respects, putting in a septic or and well or tying into town Water and Sewer for instance.

Keep this in mind, it’s not going to cost as much as a big home, and it’s not going to have the same maintenance requirements as a big home.

Not to mention early expenses on Heating and Cooling costs will be much lower. Heat pumps are very efficient in this area and they couple well with an alternate propane heat source. In addition, you may be able to add some solar panels and a composting toilet which require maintenance but allow off-grid freedom.
