Teenager's house on wheels

Mark Burton from Custom Built Surrey has been hard at work, as he explains... "Our stroppy teenage son informed me that he "needs his space". So, as if by magic, a House on Wheels appeared at the bottom of our 100ft garden within 3 weeks. I will also be driving the house through central London to The Grand Designs Show with the message "All Teenagers Should Have One." You can visit Mark - who builds custom made garden buildings, log cabins, garden offices and workshops - at Grand Designs Live, Stand G360. -------------------------------------------------------------------------

    While I can address the fact that "all teenagers should have one", he did a great job and the possibility is there that you can "hire" him out for his services. He's now proved himself - he wanted his own room and now he could help others build their own. A thought: or maybe he could pull in a good income with it. On a serious note, the building looks really good - he did a nice job.

    At first I took for granted that the teenager built this tiny house himself. But upon re-reading it, I do not see that indicated at all in the article. But I think it is a good idea--a teen can have his/her own house, if he/she can build it. Consider it...a rite of passage to becoming a responsible adult, capable of providing for a family.
