"Japanese ..Netaro built himself this very small, solar-powered house back in 2009 for a mere $1,000. His goal was to see how inexpensively he could live without sacrificing what mattered to him. That means he has a laptop, Internet, satellite TV, transportation and electricity. And he uses them all regularly...for only $250 per month."
