WATCH: Teenager Builds Mobile Home On His Own

He started building his home at just 18!

Shares

Josh isn't like most teenagers. While kids his age are out attending parties and stressing over school, he was already set on finding a way to live a debt-free, mortgage-free future.

His solution? Building himself a custom-made, tiny home. At just 18 years old, he was inspired by a fellow teen he saw on YouTube who has also made the transition into living with less. He got a summer job, saved up to buy a car-hauler trailer, and has been working on refurnishing it since. 

Today, Josh is set to move into his new home with his girlfriend Lindsay. Their 18-foot trailer has a three-foot deck and two lofts—one with two shed dormers and extra windows while the other is reserved for sleeping. All the furniture inside were hand-built by Josh himself, too.  

The pair is also planning to have their home certified as an RV. They hope that the freedom of having a rent-free, minimalist lifestyle will allow them to travel more and spend time doing things they love.
