I found this video on my permaculture forum I frequent, the video shows a house which apparently was free, but then insulated with wool for only 362 bucks.
I wanted to let you know that Louis over at austintinyhouse.com is having a open house of his brand new tiny house, for those of you are near Austin Texas, go check it out. If anyone does get a chance, bring back some photos for us and share your story, I will make a post!

Where: Far south east corner of the property at 5213 Jim Hogg Ave in Austin, TX.
If you need more directions, feel free to call me (Louis): 512-698-6673
Hey all, some exciting news, TheTinyLife was featured on Creative Loafing. Many of you might not be familiar with it, it is in 5 or so cities on the East coast, it is our free alternative newspaper. For the Charlotte location, its a pretty well read publication.
Most of us have too much space and too much stuff, both of which lead to too much responsibility. Think about it: You have to manage your stuff. First, you have to get a good price for it — then you have to find a place for it, care for it, keep it from falling apart, store it and, eventually, dispose of it. Multiply those responsibilities by all of the possessions in your life and you’re not going to have much time for anything else other than stuff-management. That’s not even counting all of the energy and resources that went into creating, packaging, shipping, storing and selling your stuff before you bought it. It’s this type of realization that has helped spur the tiny house movement, where people are building and living in houses smaller than most of the rooms in our houses.
A great commentary has been done by Bethany Lyttle of the New York Times, she talks about Tiny Houses, the movement, and why people are turning to this solution.
Note: the Audio is a bit echo-y sorry for that, but it still very clear.
