Tiny house for $362

Sign up for my daily-ish email, or my devious plots for world domination:

This tiny house is occupied by a couple and their cats. This piece of property came with a shack that could have been … who knows what. A storage shed? Whatever it was, it was uninabitable. It was nothing close to air tight.

Here is a rundown of where $362 comes from:

$10 – front door
$60 – fabric to hold in wool insulation
$120 – 400 pounds of wool in roof and door (it’s nine inches thick in the middle of the poofy part)
$27 – three straw bales for wall insulation (clay/soil was free)
$60 – wood (the rest was milled on site from trees we’ve fallen or salvaged from the site’s existing buildings or the cabin itself)
$85 – large window, the rest were free
