In the market for a tiny house? More than 20 homes are being sold in a court-ordered online auction after the Chapter 7 bankruptcy of "Lil' Lodges," a manufacturer based in Bear Creek, Alabama.

Pearce & Associates is conducting the auction for the U.S. Bankruptcy Court, Northern District of Alabama (Tuscaloosa).

"Tiny homes appeal to those who are seeking to live simply, more economically, or with minimal impact upon the environment. This auction provides an opportunity for people to obtain one at a great price," said Chip Pearce, president of Pearce & Associates, which is conducting the auction.

"These homes have a lot of character, constructed from high quality materials and generally in the style of a lodge or a log cabin. Most are built on chassis with four or five axles. Most of these are incomplete, so the buyers can save money by finishing some of the construction themselves," said Pearce.

Also selling will be tools, appliances and other items. Bidding is already under way at auctionbypearce.com, and the auction will run through April 4 at 7 p.m.

Homes are available at two warehouses -- 674 County Road 65, Bear Creek, and 8085 Highway 13, Bear Creek. Both locations will be open for inspection Monday, April 3, and Tuesday, April 4, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
