DIY home for less than $3500



Jenine Alexander

co-founder at *faircompanies

Posted: Apr 27, 2012


In a town where the median home price is over half a million dollars, Jenine Alexander decided to build her own. Using resources like the tiny house blogs and the 1950 bestselling DIY book “Your Dream Home: How to Build It for Less Than $3,500” (a gift from a friend), Jenine spent less than $3,500 on her home. In fact, she used nearly only materials recovered from the dump or found on craigslist and the only things she paid for were a used trailer and fasteners (nails, screws, hinges, etc). She built it on wheels not just to get around minimum size standards, but mostly because she couldn’t afford land in her hometown of Healdsburg, California.

This woman rocks! I imagine her going to Burning Man in her house; she embodies many of the Ten Principles, and she'd be about the only one there for whom Home was actually home.
