She Built Hawaiian Bamboo House for $11,000
Kristie Wolfe bought land in Hawaii sight un-seen for $8000 then arrived a year later with power tools in her luggage. With help from mom, this dynamic duo built this lovely 2nd house in the Hawaiian jungle for the an amazingly low price of $11,000 in 2 months. Thank you FairCompanies.org for another great video! They find the best projects.
Building her own home meant that Kristie was able to design everything custom: from a toilet-sink to save water (she’s not only off-grid, but she relies on rainwater capture for water) to an indoor/outdoor shower with cork-bark tiling. Whether she ever moves here permanently or simply moves on to building yet another home, she now knows she can build her own shelter.
