13-Yr-Old Boy Builds Own Home For $1,500

Postby oneh2obabe » Jan 20th, 2018, 8:03 am

Meet Luke Thill, who at age twelve started working on his very own tiny house- one a mere 5' by 10', but with a sleep loft, transforming dining table, and even a small kitchenette. At age thirteen, using money from summer lawn-mowing jobs, and bartering (electrical wiring help in exchange for cleaning out a garage in one case), Iowa's Thill completed his tiny house- one that he calls the practice precursor to a future "real" tiny house he plans on designing and eventually living in.

Dance as if no one's watching, sing as if no one's listening, and live everyday as if it were your last.

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.

Resourceful young guy.

Edited to add;

Something tells me this kid isn’t out in his community causing trouble or eating tide pods.
