What Size Does Your Dream Home have to be?
For couple Christopher and Merete, not very big at all. With no building experience, Christopher and Merete decided to build their dream home…on a flatbed trailer.
As house sizes in the United States continue to grow bigger, this couple decided to be a part of the “small house movement” and proved to themselves that what is important to them, can fit in some very small places. They taught themselves the skills to construct their home, with a lot of YouTube videos, Home Depot employees, and some trial and error.
This home is solar powered, has a composting toilet, and can be moved anywhere. With all the money saved from having a much smaller home, they realized that their world actually got bigger:
The world gets a lot bigger when you’re living small because I can afford to do a lot more things now in terms of cash and time. The whole world is my living room.
