Economizing to make ends meet is one thing, but a Florida family who lost their home and business in 2008 has gone a little overboard. Resolving never to rely on credit again, the Berzins — Hari and Karl — bought a plot of land in Virginia in 2011 and built a house there for their themselves, their two children, and large dog.
The size of the house? A minuscule 168 square feet. That’s the size of a standard 14-by-12-foot living room, which is another way of saying there’s not much living room.
The cozy group seems happy enough. They maintain their own blog, titled, fittingly, www.tinyhousefamily.com.
The MailOnline reports:
It cost the couple $12,000 to make their tiny house, which was built on a flatbed trailer using materials found on Craigslist and from other sources.
The three-acre plot of land it is built on cost the couple $25,000, according to House Logic.
The mister did most of the construction himself.
