Jay Shafer is a man who many know as the Godfather of the modern tiny house movement. It was 20 years ago that he built his original tiny house on wheels and that has since inspired thousands of people all over the world to construct their own tiny homes. His new tiny house design is aimed at taking things back to the absolute basics in all aspects. That means a home which is simple and pleasant to live in, simple to build and also simple to afford. This new tiny house design cost a remarkably low sum of US $5000!
