The Half/Half House Makes Tiny Homeownership Even More Affordable

Monarch Tiny Homes

If you're in the market for a newly built tiny home, you typically have two choices. You can buy a professionally made one that will run around $200 to $400 per square foot, or you can construct it yourself for considerably less.

But what if neither solution works for you?

The Half/Half House by Monarch Tiny Homes splits the difference. The $22,000 dwelling comes with a complete exterior as shown here. All the heavy lifting that makes it a weather-tight and highly insulated home is taken care of by the builder.

What's the hitch? The interior is unfinished. But that's the enjoyable part. You get to customize the inside your tiny home on your own, for a lot less than what a professional builder would charge.
