How Did Teenager Luke Thill Afford His Own Home? Well, He Started By Mowing Lawns (Video)

Not bad. Actually, kind of¬†very cool! Think back to when I was 13… Was I doing anything remotely this bright? Nah. Not anywhere near. Hahaaa!

Now, you armchair conservationists and construction engineers should take note: (1) Luke’s built and “financed” this house on his own, (2) using LOTS of reclaimed/repurposed material, (3) for less than $1500, and (4) HE IS 13 YEARS OLD!

Meet Luke Thill, who at age twelve started working on his very own tiny house- one a mere 5′ by 10′, but with a sleep loft, transforming dining table, and even a small kitchenette. At age thirteen, using money from summer lawn-mowing jobs, and bartering (electrical wiring help in exchange for cleaning out a garage in one case), Iowa’s Thill completed his tiny house – one that he calls the practice precursor to a future “real” tiny house he plans on designing and eventually living in.
