Purchased for $950 off Craigslist, Greenfield’s 50-square-foot tiny home is ultra-teeny compared to many tiny homes we’ve seen. He is living completely off-grid and almost zero-waste, using solar panels, composting toilet, natural refrigeration, and a rocket stove for cooking, harvesting filtered rainwater for his needs, taking dips in the nearby ocean for hygiene (he’s gone showerless for the last two years). From his tiny urban homestead, he can see the ocean.
In the mild climate of San Diego, Greenfield is able to spend much of his time outdoors, working the garden and building things. For his media work (he donates up to 90 percent of profits to worthy non-profits), he goes to libraries and cafes for an Internet connection. He outlines all the things he has done for his Teeny Greeny tiny homestead in this FAQ.
