Small house for holidays from Christy Wolf: project review

Small house for rest in bungalow style HouseSmall for recreation, located somewhere on a tropical island, is probably the dream of every person who has to clear snow of a car for several months a year before going to work and who knows what central heating is. In general, residents of cold countries tend to dream of distant refuges, palm trees sinking in the shadows, where you can hide at least for a while, so as not to hear the dreary howling of the blizzard behind the frozen window. Obviously, most of these people have no chance of fulfilling their dream due to financial constraints. For designer and fashion designer Christie Wolf from Boise, Idaho, the path to her own sunny land began with the construction of a tiny house, and this was the first project of the company she founded. Our heroine was aiming to make money on this in order to acquire her vacation home in Hawaii. The proceeds and personal savings were enough to fulfill this long-held dream. We offer you a video in which Christy herself tells her story. Brave girl calls herself a "hippie capitalist." Here's how she talks about what prompted her to give up all sorts of material benefits at a time when she was not yet thirty: “In 2011 I built a tiny house of recycled materials, spending $ 3,000 on it. I was able to do this, because the prospect of living side by side with three hundred neighbors, surrounded by apartments with the same layout and stamped furniture, among the white walls, literally turned my mind upside down. Initially, I intended to settle in my hut just for a year, as an experiment, but rather soon I adapted to existence in a confined space and was even able to see the advantages in the forced scarcity of the situation. ” Later, Wolf sold her first tiny home for $ 5,000. It took her $ 11,000 to build a bungalow in Hawaii, and $ 4,000 more for a flight, renting a truck to transport things and buying food for two months. Also for the site itself was paid $ 8,000. Christie's mother actively participated in the creation and implementation of the project. The interior, decorated by the hands of two women within a very modest budget, seems very creative, thoughtful and elegant. Every detail of this house is unique. It is completely autonomous: the rainwater collection system and solar panels provide all the needs of the residents. Here you can find more than amazing solutions. One of them is a combination of a washbasin and a toilet bowl connected to a single source of water. The water first enters the tank for washing hands, and only then into the drain tank. The house stands on stilts, and its living level is quite high above the ground, and at the bottom, Christie has equipped an additional recreation area with a hanging bed. Some may argue that the concept of lifeno frills runs counter to owning a second home. However, the experience of our heroine is inspiring in the sense that she managed to fulfill her dream in her own manner, as self-sufficient as possible. In addition, a bungalow in Hawaii became for Christy Wolfe a source of additional income, since she rents it all the months when she does not live there herself. The adventurism of this woman, her desire to experiment and explore the world from different points of view are quite understandable and admirable. Do you agree with this?
