Rob Greenfield’s Teeny Greeny House

Rob's teeny house

Last week someone shared Rob’s tiny house with me on Facebook and I wanted you to see and experience it. I’ll let Rob take it from here.

Here’s an update to my off the grid, tiny house life, in the city! I live here without a bill or debt to my name and life is splendid. I grow food, live on rainwater, compost, harness the energy of the sun with solar panels, practice a near zero waste life, and ride my bamboo bike around town.

My last video left a lot of unanswered questions so here’s a new video that answers a lot of them and gives an update of all the change I made to the place! It’s just hard to cover everything I’m doing in under 10 minutes but this video will answer questions like: where do I shower?, what about city code?, who’s land am I on, and do I pay rent?

I’ve made a lot of improvements over the last month. Every week the place is more beautiful and more self sustaining.

Bob I love what you’re doing and what has been achieved by your desire to live by the Earth. I’m 70 and live in NC, and after a lot of complications in my life which has left me almost totally broke I have now decided after watching your video a number of times to follow your simple lifestyle and be happy once again after years of turmoil. Regards, Peter

Rob is doing it right, great video.

Get rid of the trailer, add a canvas outfitters tent, 5 acres of land on a wooded ridgetop and this will be me next year.

This guy is fun, informative and brave! Rob, I use an air (vacuum pot) for hot water while camping. They are usually used for serving hot coffee. It’s really useful for washing hands.
