Many routes to low cost accommodation exist. Modular or prefabricated structure, modest sizing of the dwelling all contribute to reducing costs.

Timber seems to be the route to lower cost along with wood composites.

With a good and reasearched plan you can make low budget house. Some points to consider.

  • Always choose lands little bit far from town areas where you will get lands little bit less price as compare to town area.
  • If you want to stay near town area then it is better to take less amount of land.
  • Always try to make your ground floor as parking ,which will help you to keep as much as tenants.
  • Try to make comfortable rooms not so small or not so big.
  • Always try to invest in step level for making home ,no need to apply for home loan.

For constructing  a low cost house rectangular design of the rooms  demands less steel rods and  using flamed granite stones for the stairs of  house and  broken pieces of stones or bricks for the top portion of house avoid polish  walls, and choose white color to decrease  cost  and opt for weather-coat paints for outer parts as it will decrease  maintenance expenses

The Tiny House Trend

The tiny-house movement is an architectural and social movement that advocates living simply in small homes.

As of 2018 there was no set definition as to what constitutes a tiny house. However, a residential structure under 500 square feet is generally considered a tiny home. The tiny-house movement promotes financial prudence, economically safe, shared community experiences, and a shift in consumerism-driven mindsets.

Any thoughts?
