College Student Builds Tiny Home for $15,000
The cost of college in America has skyrocketed in recent years, making many question whether its actually worth it. Design major Joel Weber wanted to avoid the high priced dorm environment, so he simply built his own house. He ended up spending just US$ 15,000 on this well-designed 145 sq-ft tiny home, saving tons of money to invest back into his education. To put it into perspective, an apartment on campus at the University of Texas, Austin where he was attending, would have cost him US$ 1,500 a month, or US$ 72,000 over the course of 4 years.
