He Built a 22 sq. Ft. Micro Home for $1,470

David Rule built the world’s smallest (functional) home for $1,470 — and you need to see it! Another YouTuber had previously built a 25-square-foot tiny house complete with a sink and kitchen space, but David wanted to go smaller — and he did it. He built an adorable tiny home that’s just 22 square feet (including the “chimney” toilet).

Believe it or not, this little space includes a kitchen, a sink, a shower, and a bed! You can watch him build the entire home in the video below, but the best part of it, by far, is the dinner party he hosts for three of his friends and a dog inside his micro home!

VIDEO: I Built the World’s Smallest House


  • This is the world’s smallest functional home! David made it just 22 square feet to make it smaller than the 25 square foot home another YouTuber made.
  • The bed is a number of pillow cushions placed inside the “shower.”
  • A 2 quart jug holds water for the sink and the shower, with a shower head that attaches to the faucet when it’s time to shower.
  • A single burner propane stove that runs on butane hides beneath a pretty box, and he has an extra tiny “fridge” cooler beneath it.
  • He has a single solar panel attached to the roof that runs his sink and charges his devices.
  • A mini battery-operated fan adds some ventilation in the space.

      32 sq ft would be noticeably larger, so no…
