Man Cuts Down His Cost Of Living By Moving Into A Tiny House

This man didn’t want to pay high rent fees, so he moved into a tiny house. It may be small but it’s actually kind of awesome.

Joel Weber is a student in Texas who wanted to manage his student debts better from the outset so he decided to build his own 145-square-foot house on wheels to save on rent while he is studying.

With the average rent close to campus being about $800, Weber’s new home will save him about $19,200.

He added: ‘I may live in it forever and I’m cool with that, 145 square feet might not be for everybody, and that’s OK. ‘It’s more about how I can live simple and still be grateful.’
