Teen built his dream tiny house from scratch using recycled materials and now lives rent-free

Most people would probably have finished building their dream home when they’re at least 30 years old. The exhilarating feeling of building the home of your dreams with your bare hands is incomparable.

Imagine envisioning a plan, pouring your blood, sweat, and tears, and finally seeing it to fruition.

That’s what Tom did. With the help of his craftsmanship, resourcefulness, and resilience, he was able to turn his dream into a reality. And guess what, he’s only 17 years old when he started!

It was the high prices of houses and Tom’s desire for freedom that motivated him into building his humble abode using recycled materials. He realized that he could build everything from scratch—all while using recycled materials and staying on a budget.

“My idea on building the hut was to keep it all simple and just live that simple life stress-free, to be honest. Well, I own everything I’ve got, and I’ve paid it all off—it’s all mine.”

Now that Tom is 20 years old, he’s relieved he doesn’t have to spend his hard-earned money on rent. “It’s just a simple life and all you’ve got once you’ve built it, it’s just yours…” Tom said.
