By the time most of us graduate high school, we’re lucky if we’ve even managed to narrow down which university we’d like to attend or job field we’re interested in joining.
When New Zealand nativeGabriella Grace was finishing up her studies, however, she already had her eye on another prize: her own home!
That’s right, atjust 18 years old, Gracenot only became a homeowner, but she built the petite abode with her own two hands.With her father’s assistance, she designed and built an adorable home as her final project in school.
Two years later, she shows off all the nooks and crannies to Bryce Langston, the host of Living Big in a Tiny House. The series features several examples of compact living situations for those who like to live modestly.
Langston is clearly impressed by what he finds insidethehacienda, especially when he catches a glimpse of the amazing view of their country’s capital town, Wellington. Now 20 years old, Grace admits she just got lucky with the location!
Once they headindoors, Langston continues to be blown away by her ingenuity. Using mostly recycled wood and other items, Grace explains how the 172-square-foothomeonly cost her about $17,000. That’s less than some people pay for cars, let alone their house!
Take a look to hear more from her about the whole process of crating the pint-size sanctuary.
