This is the story of a man who built his own tiny house for less than $500.
His name is Scott and he calls it his transforming tiny home because it has a custom and very simple fold-out bed. And here’s what’s really interesting. This is the biggest house he’s had in almost 3 years because before this he lived in a dome-tent, and before that, out of a backpack. So for him, the 83 sq. ft. cabin is roomy. Scott and his friends designed and built the simple tiny shelter for less than $500. It’s located on a friend’s 20-acre plot of land. Enjoy the full tour below. Can you imagine building a house for only $500 in materials? Talk about life-changing…

How he built a $500 tiny cabin with help from friends
It’s far from fancy… But it’s better than you might think for a $500 home. Let’s go inside…
It’s a one-room transforming tiny house design… So this area serves as the living area (couch), kitchen, office, and storage.
Here’s how it works with the bed folded down.
Pretty nice tiny house for only $500 and the fun of building it with your friends.

How Does One Get An Opportunity To Do Something Like This?
How do you get a chance to do something like this? I think it takes getting out there and doing interesting things and meeting interesting people. I suppose sometimes it takes being interesting enough that others welcome you to build a cabin on their property. That’s one thing I’ve noticed in common with just about everyone who gets to do something like this. They’re interesting and quite adventurous. What do you think?
