When deciding how much to pay for a tiny house, keep in mind that some places require permits for this type of construction. Additionally, you will need to cover electrical and plumbing work. You may also have to employ a plumber and electrician for these tasks. Cost of labor depends on what type of work is required, and the location. For example, if you plan to build a tiny house in a rural area, you may have to pay a higher fee for labor than you would in a city.
