Just before the pandemic, a young woman decided to buy a three-bedroom house in Atlanta. The amount paid: $196,000. She planned to rent out some of the rooms. But when the health crisis hit, her project fell through, reports CNBC.
Looking out the window, she had the idea to build a tiny home in her backyard and live there, renting out her main house to a family.
After getting the necessary construction, electrical, and plumbing permits, she then hired professionals to pour the concrete foundation. In total, building her tiny home cost around $35,000.
But she didn't take out a bank loan. Instead, she decided to cash in $8,500 in stocks she owned and put around $20,000 on her credit cards. She finally paid off this debt in 2022.
The kitchen is complete and even has a huge fridge.
The bathroom is small but complete.
There is also a porch to enjoy morning coffee.
As for the bed, it is on the loft.
