A Teeny Tiny House Built For Around $100

This is the story of Brother Paul Wright’s teeny tiny house that was built for just around $100 over in Dothan, Alabama.

You see, Paul has been building tiny little structures like this ever since he can remember, using wood and even cardboard as a kid to build temporary forts. So now, Paul is bringing that childhood energy to this little project so that they can have a travel trailer tiny house as well as a micro guest house on their property. How cool is that? Enjoy the full story and tour below (with more photos coming soon, too, hopefully)!

What helpful piece of advice would you give to others who are interested in going tiny? What mistakes could you help them avoid?

The number one thing is to truly let someone else do it for you and design it for you. It takes time if you do it yourself.

    Good story and advice. I think we would all like to see a bit more of the design and the interior. Also, what amenities did he incorporate into it.

    Hi Brother! Just remember that you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you! God’s timing is perfect and you will finish it in His time! Have fun and I hope you enjoy it when it’s done. I also live in a tiny house and it has become such a place of Peace for me. Yours could become quite a ministry for you! Bless you and your wife.
