WATCH: Teenager Builds Mobile Home On His Own
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.
