Pitt created the Make It Right Foundation in 2007 to provide homes for communities in need of affordable housing. The vision is to help people around the world own environmentally sustainable homes, but this is the first time they have embraced the tiny home concept.  Nola.com reports that the tiny home will sell for less than $100,000 and should be finished by the end of August 2015. The house will have two floors, a living room, kitchen, bathroom and a washer/dryer. The top level will contain the bedroom and closet.

The tiny home is has an eco friendly design with green standards, including solar powered panels and it will be LEED Platinum certified. Since this house is connected to a TV series, we can probably expect to see an upcoming episode sharing the entire process!
