Brad Pitt recently helped build a tiny house that is almost too cute for words. The two-story home sold for $112,000 (a decent amount considering its size and location) and is designed to minimize the carbon footprint and electric bill with solar panels and energy-efficient appliances. High ceilings and a wraparaound deck aid in making the home feel more spacious than it is in reality.
Pitt has been interested in architecture for some time, and in 2007 he founded the Make it Right Foundation to build homes for families whose homes had been washed away during Hurricane Katrina. Since then, the foundation has built 150 homes in the Lower 9th Ward of New Orleans.
This home, however, stands out because of its energy efficiency standards. Built in 2016, the home was built to mark the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.
The Lower 9th is ranked as one of the least expensive neighborhoods in New Orleans, however, Pitt’s presence in the area is expected to drive up prices. The home’s listing agent Robert Van Meter commented, “People call it the ‘Make It Right’ Village. People are very aware of Brad Pitt’s impact on the area.”
