Remember Jay and Kim Merrett? They’re the couple who built a 240 sq. ft. steel-framed tiny house in the woods, remember? You may also recall when they shared photos of their tiny home decorated for Christmas!

Well, today, we’ve got an update from Jay and Kim and I’m happy to be sharing that with you. If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to live tiny on your own land, and the costs associated, I think you’ll love this story/update! So I’m going to “pass the mic” to Jay & Kim. Enjoy!

Remember Professor Wilson? He’s the teacher I once told you about who took a dumpster and turned it into a tiny home and then followed through by living in it for 10 months!

That’s right! He actually lived in a converted DUMPSTER for ten months (happily)!

And now, according to Kirsten Dirksen, Jeff Wilson is creating, promoting and selling the “iPhone for housing”! And I think he’s on to something!

So this is the Kasita! It’s an incredible yet very simple idea but what do you think?
