Girl, you got the skills
Gabriella Grace, just 18 years old when she completed this school project, is an inspiration to us all. Not only passionate about her studies, she also had the determination and wherewithal to back it up with action. Keeping costs at only $17,000, she built her own tiny home comprised of various found and recycled construction material. Check it out!
New Zealander Gabriella Grace is one of these experimental souls: she constructed this 172-square-foot abode as a school project when she was 18 years old. Made with a lot of recycled materials, clever details and a bit of technical help from her dad, Grace’s home is now temporarily parked in a scenic spot about 15 minutes by car from downtown Wellington. The sofa is made from pallet wood and a mattress, doubling as a guest bed and as storage. There’s plenty of light streaming in, thanks to the double French doors. The kitchen counter and cabinets are actually an old unit from the 1960s that Grace bought for cheap and refinished to look new and modern. Power can be supplied both by solar panel and by main grid hookup.
