Elizabeth Turnbull was planning for Yale grad school and started estimating her future living expenses. As an incoming Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies student, Elizabeth calculated that she would spend ~$14,000 over two years of school and wanted to do something effective with that money. So she channeled a little inspiration from Tumbleweed Tiny House and decided to build her own tiny home as economically as possible.
So far, she’s made incredible progress building the 8′ x 18′ modish home on a flatbed trailer. By the time she’s done, the off-grid home will price out just over $11,000 or so. And it’s surprisingly spacious inside, too.
