Austin Hay is still in high school but builds his own home. It's only 130 square feet, but it makes it homeowner without a mortgage just 16 years old. He is currently parked in his parents' backyard, but he has built it on wheels, so he plans to take it to college and wherever he goes after graduating.
He has slept in his tiny house for a few months and has already decided not to return to the big ones (his parents' home is 1800 square feet). "Living small means fewer accounts, live means more bills," he explained from the tiny climb of his new home. "I do not want to pay big bills."
The 130-square-foot Hay House can make him the newest member of the growing Little House Movement.
Hay expects to spend about $ 12,000 to build his house (his used trailer costs $ 2000) and pays for working on two summer jobs (in a camp and at a snack bar in the park). It has cut its cost in half (the DIY's domestic price is $ 23,000) because Hay has wiped everything from doors, windows and floors to the kitchen sink (the wooden floors were $ 25 in a warehouse and the stainless steel sink).
