Couple Build DIY Reclaimed Off Grid Tiny Cabin for $7k

I found this story on Reddit and had to share it with you. It’s a couple who teamed up and decided to build their own 250 square foot tiny cabin made out of mostly reclaimed materials for only around $7,000 in material costs. They did all the labor themselves.

And since they built their tiny home on a foundation on their own land they continually make improvements to the place to better meet…
