If you thought that a 15-year-old building a mortgage-free tiny house was amazing, now there’s a 12-year-old with her sights set on her very own mortgage-free humble home.
Austin Hay is the young man behind Mini House Builder. Today he’s 17-years-old in his senior year of high school is has just about finished his little home.
Now on the horizon is a 12-year-old who goes by the name of La Petite online. In her blog, Tiny Maison, she’s already begun to share her knowledge and passion for building.
In one of her recent YouTube videos, which you can watch below, she’s laid out the possible floor plan for her house inside her living room using tape. By the way, this is a great way to tour get a feel for a tiny house without having to travel very far.
Right now La Petite is in the process of creating blueprints and ideas for her house and by March of 2013 she plans on having acquired her materials and having started the construction process.
So far she’s already acquired some reclaimed building materials like her bathroom door, front door, and some windows. And she’s sketched out some of her design ideas which I’ll share with you in this post.
Here’s something La Petite wrote on why she wants to build a little home on one of her blog posts that I really enjoyed.
“Tiny houses, in my opinion, symbolize freedom and independence; you peel away all of the accumulated stuff (blog on stuff to come soon, you might want to set aside some time for that. I’ve got a lot to say.) and then there you are…the real you.”
She also drew up some bubble plans which is such a simple way to gather design and usage ideas for your future tiny house.
