Vancouver Craigslist ad selling tiny $40,000 house

The ad is for a tiny $40,000 house that is on display at the Shipyard Friday night market as part of a North Vancouver micro housing showcase.

Designer Ben Garratt said in an interview on YouTube that the total size of the small home is 150 square feet. Almost all of the materials used to build it are recycled and sustainable.

Garratt seems to especially pride the home on being chemical-free; all the wood is finished with hemp oil.
