It is a little off-grid fairy tale cottage.

I did everything by myself and It cost around 30000 us$.

With my wife, first we found the land and we adapted the house to the land to make sure that we’ll have the view of the 2 volcanos around us.

No challenge for us. We love little space.

More time to spend outside in nature.

Don’t be afraid to live in a little space. You’ll come back to essential things and you will enjoy spending less money in your home!
