Check out the tiny house Vermont resident Ethan Waldman built after quitting his job so he could do some traveling. The 30 year-old Waldman gave up his well-paying job and did almost all the work himself, finishing the 200-square-foot home on wheels in just over a year.
Waldman’s new home ended up costing about $40,000 in total. Roughly $26,000 in materials and $14,000 in labor, hiring a professional roofer and paying a company to install the insulation. An investment well worth it for the Vermonter, as he’s traveled extensively since finishing the home.
Ethan has written and published a book titled Tiny House Decisions, guiding others who want to build a small home. In addition, his website thetinyhouse.net offers insight and instructions on the process of building a tiny house.
