Would you live in a tiny house... in Hawaii?

Posted By on Fri, Mar 2, 2012 at 6:00 AM

You may not have ever considered living in a teeny-tiny house - but what about one the size of a two-car garage in beautiful Hawaii?

Housekeeper Johnny Sanphillippo earns less than $20,000 a year, but by saving money, gradually building a small 480 sq. ft. house, taking his time and paying cash for everything as he went, he now lives a block and a half away from the Hawaiian shore.

He asks, "If you don't have a mortgage and the taxes are low, how much do you need, really, to keep going?" Where would you build your tiny, affordable house?
