Habitat for Humanity Cabarrus County recently held its newest home dedication with the second “tiny house” the organization has built in Cabarrus County, North Carolina. The first one was built in 2015.

The typical Habitat home is built for a family and ranges from around 1,050 square feet to 1,120 square feet and costs around $79,000. But the newest tiny house is only about 488 square feet with a cost of about $45,000 to $50,000 and is located on East C Street, Kannapolis.

Every adult over the age of 18 that lives in a Habitat home has to invest 250 hours of sweat equity and participants pay a zero interest mortgage over 30 years.
