Tiny House a College Student Decided to Build After He Was Frustrated About Rent Costs
The rent was just too high for one University of Michigan student until he decided to take matters into his own hands.
Christopher Cerk, a 21-year-old computer science student, didn’t care too much for the freshman dorms and spent $800 per month on rent last year. So Clark dished out about $13,000 on materials over the past two years and built his own small home to reside in during his final two years at U-M.
“Around freshman year I didn’t enjoy living in the dorms so I wanted to do something different,” Cerk told the Ann Arbor News. “I started researching different ways to live. I wanted to put all the money that would be going towards rent in Ann Arbor to something else.”
