84 Lumber Bringing Tiny Homes to the Masses


Building materials supplier 84 Lumber is making tiny houses accessible for everyone.

With the launch of their new offshoot, 84tinyhouses.com, they’ve begun offering multiple options to help do-it-yourselfers hop on the small home bandwagon.

The company is offering four tiny home models, ranging from classic to contemporary.  All of them are under 200 square feet and easily moveable.


These homes are surprisingly beautiful, inside and out.

“The Roving” is a 154 square foot, farmhouse style design with cedar lap siding.  It features a vaulted walnut ceiling, a reclaimed wood accent wall, butcher block countertops, and a space-saving barn door.  The loft bedroom can accommodate a full-size bed.  Green features include an Energy Star refrigerator, cork flooring, LED lights, low VOC paint, and a composting toilet.  Solar panels are an optional upgrade that is coming soon.

Unfortunately, it’s currently the only model available for purchase.  I suspect the company is waiting to release “The Degsy,” “The Shonsie,” and “The Evergreen” until they see how well “The Roving” sells.

You can purchase “The Roving” in various stages of completion:

The Build Your Own option starts at $6,884 and provides you with the trailer, with subfloor already installed, and plans (blueprints and a materials list).

The Semi-DIY option gets you started with a “shelled in” house, framed with windows, door, and shower installed.  Blueprints and a materials list help guide you in selecting custom finishes for the inside and outside.  This option starts at $19,884.

The Move-in Ready option provides a complete home starting at $49,884.  This option takes about 8-10 weeks for completion.

You can tour a tiny home at the company’s headquarters in Eighty Four, PA – call 888-456-8491 for details.  The homes are available for purchase at any 84 Lumber nationwide.
