This Single Mom Facing Homelessness Built A $10K Home Instead Of Taking Out A $300K Mortgage

22 August 2018

Life is hard as it is, now imagine being a single mom in this cruel world? This woman here is a true hero, you should hear hear story:

Charlotte Sapwell was told in order to get a home, she’d have to take out a $400,000 ($300,000+ USD) mortgage to finance it. The debt was too much for her.

She refused to pay the mortgage and built this amazing tiny home.

With her grandfather’s support, and her children as motivation, Charlotte built a 3×6 meter (roughly 10×20 foot) tiny home.

It took her about five months to build the space, which includes a combined living space, kitchen, and bedroom for Charlotte, and a second bedroom for the kids.

Charlotte shares her own bedroom with the living, dining, and kitchen area.

Charlotte has been giving the home upgrades, including a sliding barn door for the kids’ room.

She’s even used her new skills to create fun toys for her kids, including this Ice Cream stand that they often pretend is the shop Charlotte bought her building supplies from.

She is so motivational with all the things she managed to acomplish

While she never expected any fame, she says that the experience has helped her see that she’s not the only single mom who has experienced financial strain when it comes to housing.

“It’s nice to know I’m not the only one but this fact alone makes me even more aware of Australia’s housing crisis- and I would love to help in anyway!”

She has documented all her experience on the social networks

While there has been an overwhelmingly positive response to her story, there are some people who choose to bring her down.

Charlotte has used this experience as an opportunity to teach her sons an important lesson.

She told Daily Mail, “I just want other females to know they are capable of anything.”

She certainly has a talent for building, and for living a minimalist lifestyle.
