    I think something has been lost in translation here, much of the article does not make sense to me, for example: “From $1,500 you can DIY everything for your 3’ x 4’ house with a kitchen, a wooden bed with mattress, a small working space”. Are you talking meters here? Most designs are around 7′ x 18′ and you are looking at around USD $15,000 on the low end for new materials and building it yourself (with a loft, kitchen, shower, composting toilet).
