This 145 sq. ft. tiny house on wheels was built by a University of Texas design student, Joel Weber, for only $20,000.
Inspired by his childhood love for tree houses Joel decided to go tiny in an effort to live debt free. Thanks to a very small loan for his home he will soon be a debt-free college graduate and a homeowner.
This home was built on a 18-foot flatbed trailer. Joel says he loves the fact that he can move the home anywhere he wants to. It’s currently parked in a family friend’s backyard.
Once you go inside the tiny house to your right is a nice lounge area surrounded by windows. The storage staircase to the sleeping loft triples as a work area and pantry for the kitchen.
The kitchen has enough room for a mini refrigerator and full size oven for home cooking. In the bathroom you’ll see there is a full shower but at the time of this writing the toilet is still currently on Joel’s project to-do list. He currently uses the main house facilities when needed.
In the future Joel hopes to design and build more sustainable tiny homes similar to his own. Please enjoy and re-share below. Thank you!
