Eco friendly tiny house

The house is eco-friendly, as many tiny houses are, and is built atop an 18-foot flatbed trailer for mobility.

With the help of a carpenter, Weber started construction.

He wanted to make the house out of as many recycled materials as possible.

In all, Weber spent about $20,000 making his tiny house. He saved up a considerable amount, and the rest came from donations from friends, family, and his community. Weber designed the house himself, and a professional carpenter and an electrician both volunteered time to work with him to realize the design.
Besides planning, organizing, and building his own home, Weber also does landscaping, house-sitting, and works as a nanny for people in his Dallas community. Weber used the money from these jobs to save up for his project. And he's no money-grubber, either. When he has a bit more cash, he'll charge people less for his services. "It's about being able to give back to people in my community," he says.

The interior is surprisingly spacious for being under 200 square feet.

This mini stove, which is propane-powered, allows Weber to cook meals.

The house, seen here in its completed state, features two lofts for extra storage space, or for guests.

Shelving doubles as a staircase up to one of the lofts, and as a desk space for all the schoolwork Weber will be doing soon.

Weber crafted this unique sink himself from an old bowl.

Weber also picked out some colors to make his house really pop.

He drew inspiration from the natural surroundings.

The house is looking good!
