Low-Cost DIY Tiny Homes

This English-Style Tiny House was Built from Scratch for Around $8,000

— March 12, 2020 — Art & Design
This English-style tiny house is a charming home located in Bristol, England that was created by the owner for an impossibly low cost that allows him to live in a debt-free manner.

The home was built by 20-year-old Tom Lear who started building the dwelling when he was just 17 on his grandparent's property using as much reclaimed materials as possible. The home was built by Lear from scratch and ended up costing him just £6,000 (around $8,000) thanks to his carpentry background that allowed him to do a lot of the work himself.

The English-style tiny house is well-appointed with everything required for comfortable daily living including a cozy seating area with a TV and fireplace, a kitchenette, bathroom with shower, sleeping loft and more.
