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)!

It have been wanting to build one so my wife and I could do so host camp worker work and travel some in the US.
How long did it take you to finish your tiny house?
Not done yet (but working on it for over a year)
Did you do it yourself? Who helped? How much did it end up costing you to build it? (optional)
I have done all the work and design alone. It has costed me between $80 to $110 dollars.
How did you figure out where to put it? Do you keep it in one place or do you move around?
We have decided to travel in it to do camp worker work. As host for the camp sites. We keep it in our yard so far but we can move it around when we need to.

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.
