Woman Builds Incredible Home in Hawaii For Minimal Cash

Kristie Wolfe had some building experience from constructing her own tiny home on wheels in her hometown of Pocatello, Idaho.

After learning to love living small, Kristie wanted some land to build a tiny vacation home with some of the money she was saving with her pared-down lifestyle.

Kristie ended up buying a plot of land in Hawaii without seeing it for $8,000. A year later she and her mother flew down to the land with some tools to build a bamboo “treehouse” that blended with the surrounding jungle.

After two months of incredibly hard work, and spending about $11,000, she had her second home.

Some may feel the 15′ by 15′ or 225 square foot house is too small, but Kristie sees the size as an asset.

“My original house was 97 square feet so that was really tiny so this feels huge,” she said.

“I think small homes are beautiful because it fits with my lifestyle. I think having a lot of stuff mentally weighs you down even in ways that you don’t realize.”
