This is a bit of a misstatement. If you are calculating the home’s price by how much it costs per square metre, then there are some tiny homes which do cost more by the square metre. However, this calculation does not account for the fact that when purchasing a tiny home, you are quite literally getting everything that you need to live a comfortable life as a part of the package. Many owners of average-sized homes cannot say the same thing. Additionally, because the dimensions are small, owners often customise with very high-end materials, because only a bit is required. So, a person who could not typically afford solid mahogany cabinets or a custom slate roof for an average size house may be quite willing to add these special touches to a tiny home. This ups the total cost, but also increases the value and the livability of the home.
