This is the story of a man who is living in an underground home on only $5,000 a year. The roof is covered in moss and pine needles while the outside wall of the home is built using large stones. A tiny wooden door leads you inside.
Once inside, you’ll find the walls and low ceilings are covered in wood paneling and the floor is covered with carpeting. The bedroom is on the other side of the home which you can access by crawling through a circular hole. Using a separate entrance, you can access the bathroom which has a composting toilet, a shower, and there’s even a pine wood sauna.
Outside, you’ll notice a classic red barn feel with deep cranberry clapboards and white trim. Inside the walls, Giffin used advanced insulation from plastics which improved the home’s energy efficiency and made it more eco-friendly.
When you go inside, you’ll find a covered “mud-room” entryway that gives you loft space for storage. There is beautiful dark hardwood flooring in the house and a crisp, clean kitchen. It includes open shelving, solid grey countertops and more. The living space even has a custom spiral staircase to take you up to the bedroom loft. Watch the video below!

An Energy-Efficient Tiny House on Wheels by Zack Giffin
This is Zyl Vardos! It’s an interview with a famous tiny house builder named Abel. He (and his team) have been designing and building custom tiny houses on wheels for other people for the last 8+ years.
Below you’ll get to take a tour of his magical tiny house building workshop and you’ll even see many of the famous tiny homes he’s built. All of this, thanks to Tiny House Giant Journey and their amazing YouTube channel.
We officially moved into the 85 sq. ft. tiny house on June 1, 2014. We have lived in our small abode for a full year.
From its conception the house has cost about $11,000 out of pocket. Right now we rent the spot we are parked in, we pay $200 a month, and of course $18 for electric on average. After our latest projects like building stairs to the loft (to replace our tiny ladder) and prime and paint the house we anticipate being finished with total spent of approximately $25,000.

In this post you’re getting to go on a guided video tour of the Tiny House in the Big Yard. It’s a 144 sq. ft. tiny house on wheels with an additional 56 sq. ft. sleeping loft that Korie and her husband, Alex, live in.
When you walk inside the house you’ll immediately see the built in bench with storage. Windows throughout the house to give you lots of natural lighting. There’s a wall mounted LCD TV, ladder to the sleeping loft with dormers, kitchen, bathroom, and more. Please enjoy and re-share below. Thank you!
The video tour is 27 minutes long so you might have to save this post for later if it’s not a good time but in the video the couple answer pretty much any possible question you might have about living tiny while they give you a complete guided tour of their tiny home.
Their tiny house is pretty awesome! They have a projector screen, sleeping loft, convertible multi-functional furniture, and so much more. I had fun virtually ‘hanging out’ with them and their friends while getting to learn about how they live. I think you’ll enjoy it and get to learn from it too so please enjoy and re-share below. Thank you!
