Life always brings us unexpected problems and we have to make the necessary adjustments to deal with them. Charlotte Sapwell became homeless when her marriage ended. Instead of buying a new home that could use up her savings, she built one herself with just 10K! Let’s take a closer look at that!

1. Doing it for the boys

Fortunately, Charlotte was allowed to build the house in her grandfather’s backyard. She could guess how difficult the process would be, but she was determined to build a roof over her boys’ heads. It took her a year and a half to complete the construction, and the result was amazing!

2. Small but big enough

Charlotte’s tiny house, which occupies just 230 square feet, seems too small for a family of 3. “The first few weeks were tough with 3 people living in a box,” she said, “but then things started happening. like running water, we’re all excited.” Let’s take a look at the ingenious design inside!

3. A room for the boys

The boys’ bedroom is Charlotte’s proudest creation. “It fills my heart with joy that my boys are finally getting their own place.” However, given the limited space in the house, she had to squeeze her own bed into the living room next door.

4. The living room

Charlotte had her bed, kitchen, and dining table all in the living room. She sold everything that wouldn’t fit in her new home. After doing this, she realized that a house didn’t need too much stuff and that downsizing could help her focus in this hectic world.

5. Lots of space

The living room is efficiently furnished so that the children have plenty of room to run around. And wait till you see the backyard outside!

6. An ice cream stand

Since Charlotte was on a tight budget, she had to get a little creative to make things work. She built lots of toys and instruments for her boys, including this lovely backyard ice cream stand!

7. A great wife and a great mother

With determination and hard work, Charlotte managed to change the life of her family. More importantly, she taught her children an important lesson that there’s nothing a woman can’t do as long as she sets her mind to it.

8. Tiny Houses On The Rise

After Charlotte’s story went viral, she decided to start a construction company to help people with financial problems. “Tiny houses offer an affordable and simple lifestyle, which is a great way to reduce our financial stress.”
