When Austin Hay´s school invited students to research anything they were passionate about, the 16 year-old began investigating the growing trend of building a tiny house. He then set to work constructing a place of his very own, one which has wheels so he can take it to college and then wherever he goes after he graduates.

Austin´s house is only 130 square feet, but it makes him a homeowner without a mortgage before he´s even finished high school. Right now, it’s parked in his parents’ backyard and he’s already decided not to return to the family home- he loves the space and freedom he has living separately from his folks.

“Living small means less bills, living big means more bills,” Austin explains. “I don’t want to pay big bills”.

The used trailer cost him $2000, which he paid for working two summer jobs (at a camp and at a park snack bar). Austin then scavenged everything from doors, windows and flooring to the kitchen sink for next to nothing.

This home is really inspirational, and shows that the small home movement is for everyone, even those with very limited budgets!
