A TINY HOUSE WITH A BIG MESSAGE

ROB GREENFIELD IS ON A QUEST TO PROVE THE TINY HOUSE LIFESTYLE IS MEANT TO BE YOUR WALLET’S BEST FRIEND AND NOT ITS WORST NIGHTMARE

Tiny House Living puts an emphasis on minimizing the costs of building and living in a home. Sure, there are more luxurious models out there—but what’s the point of living in a tiny home then? Rob Greenfield reminds the world what the Tiny House Lifestyle is really all about by building himself a tiny 100-square-foot home. This project cost him no more than $1,500.

He mostly used recycled materials for his tiny house, such as plywood and some fencing. Nothing goes to waste as he used the leftover materials to build a small shelter for his outdoor kitchen. Everything he uses in his tiny home that needs electricity is solar-powered.
Rob’s tiny home is as cozy as it is cost-efficient. Truly a reminder to the word that the Tiny House Lifestyle shouldn’t be turned into a status symbol, but to be kept as what it is—a lifestyle.

“I often find tiny houses to be very inaccessible,” explains Greenfield on his blog. “At the festival I went to in Oregon, there were plenty of houses in the $40,000-$80,000 range and even some as costly as $150,000. Don’t get me wrong, they were amazing tiny houses, but I know many people just find that idea to be totally absurd. There’s no way I could afford a tiny house that expensive, even if I wanted one, which I don’t. I love simple living, and living far more simply than most tiny house dwellers even.”
