Incredible Tiny Homes
Randy Jones of Incredible Tiny Homes was in Newport Monday to address the Cocke County Legislative Body and to involve the commissioners to the ribbon cutting of his enterprise at 10 am on Friday. He also had a Tiny Home on display outside the courthouse. The manufacturing facility and planned Tiny Home community, are located near the Airport Road intersection on Highway 160 in Bybee. A custom built home ranges from 8 to 12 feet wide and from 16 to 45 feet long. The homes start at price at $25,000 unless the buyer wants to build the home. "Once a month we have a week-long class, while the builder lives in our bunkhouse. Then the price of a home starts at $18,000," says Jones. All of the homes are self-contained with solar power, collects rain water and re-circulates it, and has compost toilets. The homes are equipped with solar cells that collect power even on cloudy days. As a result the site is not served by electric lines, or water or sewer. Jones also has leased a 20 acre site, and plans to offer a Tiny Home community, with the 30 to 40 lots renting for $200 per month.
