Small Cabin Subdivisions?
« on: December 20, 2010, 04:38:41 PM »
Thought Id inquire whether anyone knows of/has experience with "small home" subdivisions?  Seems some states like Oregon are beginning to have the conversation...

Very interesting article:

I am by this guys manufacturing facility almost daily.  It has been pretty quiet there lately.  I did not know he was still in business.  I know several sales lots around here have tried to carry his product along with the standard fare of single wides and doubles and triples.  I have looked at them and freaked out over the price tag.  However you can usually get a great deal on one of them when those lots go out of business.  As far as these units - they seem to offer pretty good quality for what I have seen.  They look more hand made than the ones made on an assembly line, but if I am going to lay out the asked $80,000 + (That seems to be the mid level from what I have seen.)  Sorry but I think I would do one of John's builders cottages:

Even if I had to hire an out of work carpenter for day help I would be dollars ahead.
