My wife found an amazing story on, about a man who decided he wanted to escape from the “rat race” of normal life. So he decided to build a house for himself that would only contain the essentials.

He ended up building an 89-square-foot home that includes everything that he needs to enjoy his life. He pays less than $100 PER YEAR in utilities, and has no mortgage or rent. I guess he doesn’t have to think about how to yard sale either ;-) .

You can view the full video of his story below:

What I love the most from this story is that he was able to make a business out of it! I’m sure that wasn’t his goal when he set out, but apparently there is a large enough demand for this type of living. I guess there are a lot of people who do not want to worry about buying a home ever again!

I wonder how well he would get along with the man who is eating well for $1/day?

So, could you live in his home? What would you miss about your current living conditions? Do you think he’s crazy? Are you planning on contacting him for a quote?

I look forward to your comments below.
