At just 240 square feet, Alex Lisefski built this tiny house on an 8-by-20-flatbed trailer. Because he didn’t want to commit to a location or pay rent, he decided to construct his own home using cheap local materials and the help of his friends.
Lisefski, a web designer, has always had an interest in architecture and was very excited to take on the project. The home has all the amenities any other home has from hot water to lights and a stove. He documented some of the process on his website The Tiny Project and uses the site to educate the community about alternative, affordable and more sustainable ways of living.
“Inhabiting such a small space forces me to live in a simpler, more organized and efficient way,” Lisefski said. “I’m forced to spend more time outdoors, in nature and engaging with my community.” He currently shares the home with his girlfriend and their dog in Sebastopol, California.
