After going through a nasty foreclosure, architect Macy Miller of Boise, Idaho did not want to deal with a mortgage or banks, and built her own 196 square foot modular home on a flatbed truck for $11,400. Doing most of the work herself, the home has a king-size bed, an oversize shower and full-function kitchen, a washer and dryer, a living room area for two, radiant floor heating, storage and expenses of about $250 a month. According to homes.yahoo.com, she is connected to the power grid and receives potable water, but a composting toilet that uses sawdust instead of water precludes the need for septic. As MHProNews has learned, she shares the home with a Great Dane and a baby girl due in March. While she and her boyfriend live separately, they spend a lot of time in the mini home, where she intends to remain after the baby is born, although a larger mini-home is planned.
