The $14,000 micro cottages at Serenbe in northwestern Georgia.

A team of architecture students designed a seemingly impossible home.


After more than a decade of designing, editing, and reworking, the students at Rural Studio - Auburn University 's architectural-design program - built two cottages in 2016 with raw materials that cost just $14,000 each. (The team calls them the "20K Homes.")

The goal was to create a model for building homes that are both beautiful and affordable.

In late summer 2017, Rural Studio will begin planning two more homes with materials that cost even less than $14,000. The students expects to start construction in early 2018.
