A Student Builds A Mini House On Wheels To Avoid Paying Rent, It Is Small But Equipped With All The Comforts

College years are not easy for everyone. When you’re young and want to build a future for yourself, everything seems difficult, especially if you don’t have a lot of resources at your disposal. Ingenuity, will, and courage, however, are elements that can emerge from the most difficult situations.

Finding your own space without spending too much money and being able to continue your education is one of the problems that many young people face. Joel Weber, an American student who, in order to save for college fees and be able to pay his tuition without much effort, had a great idea: he designed and built with his own hands a very special little house. A space of only 14 square meters which is much more than just a “room”: it is in fact a real mini-apartment on wheels!

Those who have studied far from home know very well how difficult it is to find decent accommodation at a reasonable price often the amounts required are so high that you can hardly pay the rent. So instead of dropping out of school in Austin, Joel created an environment of his own. After learning construction techniques from books from a library, he decided to invest his savings in a long-term project: a small but cozy wooden house on wheels.

From an initial basis, a 4-wheeled cart, Weber created what looks like a “trailer”. But in reality, it is much more than that, as one only needs to go inside to realize that the external dimensions do not at all reflect the space it can offer inside.

14 square meters is not a lot: it’s about the size of a standard room in today’s accommodation. In this space, however, Joel managed to create a living space with a kitchen, a bathroom and a lovely loft bed .

The secret ? Brilliant and skillful exploitation of every corner. The stairs, for example, are not only used to go up and down in the sleeping area, but also contain practical storage compartments . The wood used to build the little house also comes from the remains of people who, having learned of his project, decided to give it to him.

The kitchen is quite well equipped, as is the bathroom, and everything is in a fairly rustic and welcoming atmosphere , perfect for spending many moments of relaxation.

Not to mention that Weber’s little house is easily transportable : just like a caravan, it can be attached to the car and moved from place to place.

Joel’s project took about a year of work and almost $ 15,000 to complete. Money well invested, considering that he will have nothing more to spend to go where he wants, certain to be able to count on his charming personal mini-house on wheels.
