This is the story of a couple who built their own 67 sq. ft. tiny house in 3 months for only $420 using mostly recycled materials!

The teeny little house has a small living area downstairs and above it a loft with a double bed. As they’re living in community Liam and Rachel didn’t need to include a kitchen and bathroom, as they have shared facilities and a communal living space nearby.1

If you’re interested in building an earthbag tiny house someday, I think you’ll love this fascinating time-lapse construction sequence.

Outside, you’ll notice a circular home that has an “adobe” feel. You can see the whole entire process below, from the laying of the first earthbags to the many layers of mud that create the exterior, to installing the roof. Watch in wonder and follow the links below for more details!

This is Fred Shultz’ fantastic tiny home for his family of three. He built this off-the-grid masterpiece by himself for about $45,000, $12,000 of which he spent on the solar panels that keep the home running.

Outside, you’ll notice this tiny house on wheels is covered in corrugated steel siding and sports two awnings for extra outdoor living space. The solar panels decorate the roof of this 107 square-foot home that took him about four-and-a-half years to design and build. When you go inside, you’ll find pull-out storage beneath his “lounge” or couch area with lovely red cushions. There’s even a table tucked under the loft that can be removed and taken down to create a large dining room table, or even a bed for guests. They have a wood stove to heat the space that doubles as their hot-water heater and built-in shelves to store their kitchen essentials. Their baby daughter has a loft space with plenty of safety gates and a loft across the way provides a sleeping space for mom and dad. Their bathroom includes a composting toilet and a large Japanese-style tub.
