SUSTAINABLE HOUSING:


So much of our limited resources are wasted on building huge houses / mansions to live in that have a massive amount of waste. Single couples living in excessively large houses. There are also a huge number of "snow birds" who go south in the winter and have houses that are vacant half the year. Such a waste. Many people contribute the majority of their income on housing, forcing them to be corporate slaves working 40 + hours a week just to get by. We are not meant to be living like this. Why not simplify things, living in a much lower cost, simpler house and enjoy life and our family more? I don't get it. DITCH YOU MORTGAGE / RENT!


The average size of new, single family homes built in the United States grew 62 percent from 1,660 square feet in 1973 to 2,687 square feet in 2018, an increase of 1,027 square feet. My micro homes start at under 100 sq. ft for a single person, and up to 240 sq. ft for small families. That is a factor of 10 times smaller than the average home, and approx 10 times cheaper. Think about it, you could build 10 tiny homes for the cost of an average size home. And my tiny homes are so simple. They don't have septic systems and use environmentally friendly composting toilets and grey water systems. You can easily drop $10k to $20k on a septic system, that is about the same cost as the tiny home itself. My spaces are either heated with wood heat (with propane backup) or propane in floor radiant heating as a cost of less than $500. Many are completely off grid.


I am not a builder myself, I am more of a designer and project manager. At times I play the general contractor role. I have worked in industry as a Project Engineer for over 22 years. My whole career is all about reducing waste and getting the most done for the least costs. I am all about efficiency and use of super low cost (often free) building materials. I build micro homes for under $5k. I have several school bus conversion that also cost me less than $5k and are fully road worthy/legal. I fully support diy in the constructions of your homes. I often offer free advice, or can be hired as a consultant, project manager or general contractor.
