Student tired of paying rent builds $15,000 tiny house to live debt-free.

Studying can cost a pretty penny in tuition alone, and the cost of housing, food, clothes, books all add up to that. Many students leave college with a lot of debt accumulated over their four years (or more) of college. But some students get creative in figuring out how to avoid debt. Bradley went to college with big dreams and ambitions. However, what the teen realized was how expensive it is to live on your own. Hailing from Jacksonville, Florida (USA), the young man decided to change this. Instead of paying absurd amounts of rent, he decided to build a house for himself. The motivated young man got to work and decided that he could build a tiny house on wheels to save costs. His house measures 8.3 x 2.5 meters. 

Bradley didn’t just want a motor home or standard interior and exterior. He decided that his tiny house would look like a Florida beach bungalow and be made to last with tough, durable vinyl on the outside. He designed his porch in a southern style, which allows him to sit on it and enjoy the view. Although the dimensions seem small, Bradley used many tricks to make his house appear larger than it is. He installed a large window on one side of the house to make everything seem more spacious. Bradley calls his house his “rolling headquarters” and has dedicated his own Instagram page to his tiny house and also helps others build theirs. The house gives Bradley the freedom to roam and also financial freedom as it ensures that he does not accrue debts. When it comes to the interior and layout of his tiny home, Bradley really prioritized the kitchen, which has an 8-foot-long countertop to give him plenty of space when he cooks and prepares food. He has an electric hob under his couch that he uses for cooking and the sink is quite large and allows him to wash the dishes. 

The sitting area is very cozy and has plenty of storage space. The bench has storage space underneath and a small table that overlooks the windows and doubles as a dining area. Bradley also has a large shower in his bathroom and a compost toilet, allowing him to use the facilities at all times without having to do anything about the water. need to connect. He has a loft bed that looks incredibly inviting. He has repurposed an old locker to give it more storage space, but the space is still empty. It’s a combination of Bradley’s minimalism that gives him a lot of storage space, most of which he doesn’t even need. At the back of the house is an office space that Bradley uses to do his college work, as he is, of course, a student. Bradley built his entire house on a budget of $15,000 and remembers how his family thought he was joking when he revealed to them that he was going to build his own house. “Right after high school I paid a year’s rent and decided that wasn’t for me. So I moved back home and saved up some money to pay it all in cash and build it,” said young Bradley. Not only has his DIY project helped him save money on rent, but it’s also a potential investment, as it can be used extensively if he decides to expand his home.
