This tiny house is occupied by a couple and their cats.    This piece
of property came with a shack that could have been ... who knows what.
  A storage shed?  Whatever it was, it was uninhabitable.  It was
nothing close to air tight.

Here is a rundown of where $362 comes from:

$10  -  front door
$60 -  fabric to hold in wool insulation
$120 -  400 pounds of wool in roof and door (it's nine inches thick in
the middle of the poofy part)
$27 -  three straw bales for wall insulation (clay/soil was free)
$60 -  wood (the rest was milled on site from trees we've fallen or
salvaged from the site's existing buildings or the cabin itself)
$85 -  large window, the rest were free
