Debra and Gary were tired of working four jobs just so they could barely afford their mortgage, so they looked back to their days as wild and crazy kids:
Before having their son, Debra and her husband Gary had spent 9 years living in very tiny homes in South America. Living small hadn't felt like a sacrifice, but a way to stay focused on what is important. They decided they wanted to get back to that.
They stopped working so hard, sold or gave away all of their extra stuff and began looking for the perfect tiny home.
The couple decided to build a $15,000, 320-square-foot house where they now live mortgage-free with their teenage son. Take the tour in the video above, it's pretty interesting.
