Tiny forest home built in 6 weeks for $4,000

Carpenter Dave Herrle decided to build the house of his dreams, hoping to lead a more Waldenesque self-sufficient life of simplicity. Herrle set about building, keeping the footprint small but functional, and using salvaged materials whenever he could.

After a few too many glasses of wine on New Year’s Eve, I promised my soon to be wife that I would build her a tree house on our property. We woke up the next morning and got to work. We had all the lumber milled locally…all the doors and windows came from salvage yards, and after six weeks of construction we had a house!
