Yesterday Newt showcased Jenine Alexander’s $3,500 DIY tiny house on a trailer.
So today I wanted to introduce you to Matthew Wolpe’s humble abode.
So far it has run him approximately $5,500 in material costs and he seems to be near completion.
He designed and built it himself and it has everything you can ask for in a 120 square foot home:
- Full sized bed in a loft
- Complete kitchen
- Hot water heater
- Outdoor shower
- Composting toilet
On the exterior you might notice the beautiful reclaimed redwood siding which came from fencing and ended up running him just $1 per piece.
In addition he’s hooked it up with 120V electrical outlets and a greywater system to take care of used water. If you like what you see, I encourage you to check out the rest:
Inside you’ll find beautiful maple flooring and a pricey propane boat heater that Jay Shafer likes using in his designs.
One of the home’s multifunctional features is the staircase which also serves as a closet with drawers.
Matt also builds chicken coops, tiny campers, bicycle trailers, and unique furniture over at Just Fine Design where you can view his full portfolio. He also blogs about his house project over at oaklandtinyhouse.blogspot.com so be sure to follow his progress right there.
