When Joel Weber, a student at the University of Texas at Austin, started building a tiny house to escape the grip of debt and high rent, he probably did not think that his initiative would become a life project, an example, and an inspiration for thousands of people. 

His tiny house, which looks like a child's dream come true, offers almost all the comforts of a normal home with a realization cost of around $13,000 and maintenance costs understandably reduced to a minimum.

The only negative? The toilet. For now, Joel has not yet solved this problem, so he is forced to use external services. It may sound like a hassle, but if you need to get rid of mortgages, utility bills, and neighbors ... maybe it is worth it.

In such a small environment, it is necessary to exploit every corner and space. In fact, the staircase that leads to the upper floor, for example, is at the same time also a desk, bookcase, and storage space.

Surely there are more comfortable houses than Joel's tiny house ... But is that not outweighed by being able to move and go anywhere you want and save money at the same time?
