He made a house of only 89 squares, but wait until you see the inside

Luke Thiull, a thirteen-year-old student from Iowa, was unlike any other school-age child you have ever seen. Most kids his age are preoccupied with activities other than building houses.

This gifted child took the initiative to build his own tiny haven in his backyard, which is located in his parents’ backyard. The project cost him about $1,500 USD, but it’s his ideal small home—come have a peek!

It is amazing that this fearless teenager is taking on this challenge, particularly in an era when kids have access to cutting-edge gaming computers and systems, iPads, and smart phones. He made the choice to bust himself in a more “conventional” manner.

On his YouTube channel, he goes into great detail about how his desire to create a little house for himself was motivated by his boredom.

Following much deliberation and much investigation, Luke had a clear notion of how his imagined strategy would be carried out!

In order to gather the funds and supplies needed to complete the work on the house, he raised money by doing fund raisers online, cutting lawns, hiring people for odd jobs, and doing whatever else he could think of. In all, it took him about a year.

Luke knew someone who was handy with electricity, so he helped him install all the electrics in return for Luke emptying out his entire garage—a kind of trade-for-trade arrangement.

Luke used a lot of items from his grandmother’s house that were left behind for his project, and his uncle’s buddy gave him the front door! About 75% of the materials Luke used were recycled!

The tiny home is roughly 89 square feet in size, measuring a full 10 feet in length and 5 ½ feet in width. It has electricity, but it lacks plumbing, so there isn’t a shower or toilet yet!

Luke stated:

“I enjoyed the simplicity”

“And I desired a home free of a sizable mortgage.”

Luke has created numerous short videos that he has uploaded on YouTube. In them, he describes his idea and the reasons behind his decision to pursue it.

Luke recieved quite a lot of help from his parents both with the building and with the finances, but dad Greg ensured that it was Luke that would pay for most everything himself.

Greg said:

“It was a chance for a kid to do something more than play video games or sports”

“It teaches life lessons.”

The house is a complete dream house for a teenager, a little sanctuary for him to realx and have his own space, it has a microwave, TV and a loft with a bed, there is even a BBQ out back!

Luke diligently does his homework after school time in his little house then in the nighttime, at least some of the time, he gets to sleep there too!

Luke already has plans to build another house, maybe a little larger for when he wants to go to college. He also wants to serve as an inspiration to others!

He declared:

“I want to show children that building is possible even at this age.”

Luke’s storey is an inspiration what a kid can do that has a clear goal and a determined work ethic, and of course a little support from his parents too!
