Michael Janzen: Pallet House on wheels

If you haven't already taken a browse around Michael Janzen's Tiny Free House site, do nip across. Essentially, he's building a titchy house (on wheels) modelled partly on Thoreau's Walden cabin. But while Thoreau's cabin was cheap to build, Michael's is going to cost nothing, largely because he's using wooden pallets as his primary source of material. As he very quotably puts it: "Shouldn't the true value of a home be measured by the happiness and security it brings instead of its size and cost?" Incidentally, issue 4 of his weekly Tiny House Living newsletter is also now available for reading.
