Lower Housing Costs Goal of Spearfish Business

A new affordable housing option will soon be available to Black Hills residents of the Black Hills as a new business joins the tiny house movement, which seeks to promote a simplistic lifestyle with a smaller environmental footprint, reports the Black Hills Pioneer.

Black Hills Tiny Cabins and Cottages of Spearfish builds tiny houses that are less expensive than traditional houses and are made from quality materials meant to last. Most units will cost less than $60,000 for 308 square feet, including appliances, a covered porch and an additional 88 square feet of loft storage space. They will be built at the Spearfish business and then moved to a concrete foundation. Owners Molle Palmer, Joe Palmer and Corey Alrich started work on their company in 2015 and are nearing completion of their show model, which took about two months to create.

Simplicity is the ultimate goal of tiny houses. While small, the tiny houses built by the new company offer a living and dining space, kitchen, a bedroom with a queen-sized bed, a bathroom with shower and flushing toilet, a bedroom closet, and many appliances found in a more traditional home. More environmentally sound options with composting toilets and solar panels are also available.
