A Couple Started Building Their Own House And What They Created Out Of Nothing Is Amazing

Lately, the size of houses in America has been getting bigger, as the style of living has become more modern, with top class facilities available at everyone's disposal.

However, there are still people who choose to live away from the crowd and the loud city noise. Talking generally, the big houses might give us more security and comfort, but the smaller ones give us a lot of financial freedom, independence and most importantly, peace.

As they say, the thing that matters most is how much we value our relationships and not how bigger the houses we own.

Christopher Smith and Merete Muller, a couple from Colorado held on to a thought of having a house far away and did incredibly well setting up a Mobile Home in South Park Valley, situated on the outskirts of Colorado.

Watch out the following pictures, watching how they successfully built their 124 square feet home which took almost a year to construct.
