Yesterday Newt showcased Jenine Alexander’s $3,500 DIY tiny house on a trailer.

So today I wanted to introduce you to Matthew Wolpe’s humble abode.

So far it has run him approximately $5,500 in material costs and he seems to be near completion.

He designed and built it himself and it has everything you can ask for in a 120 square foot home:

  • Insulation
  • Full sized bed in a loft
  • Complete kitchen
  • Hot water heater
  • Outdoor shower
  • Composting toilet

On the exterior you might notice the beautiful reclaimed redwood siding which came from fencing and ended up running him just $1 per piece.
