Family Of 4 Lives In 168 Sq. Ft. House And Seems Pretty Happy

[youtube width=”425″ height=”239″][/youtube]Anderson Cooper profiled a family that lives in a home with a 168 sq. ft. footprint. After closing their restaurant in 2008, Carl and Hari needed to downsize their lives. They moved from a 1500 sq. ft. home into their current “tiny” house that only cost them $12,000 to build. Thanks to their home’s small size, their expenses have also dropped (average power bill is around $40/month) and this allows Hari to bank her paycheck each month. Their goal is to save enough to make their next home mortgage free.

I’d be all in to go this “tiny” house route and I’m sure my wife would encourage me to build it. When it was completed, she wouldn’t move in but she would strongly encourage me to. [MNN]
