TikToker Steph Douglass (@stephinvests) documented how she built the tiny home in her backyard in Austin, Texas.

She told fans that she hired builders to do the “big jobs” but said that she did some of the projects herself.

Steph revealed that it took her around three-and-a-half months to build the property and forked out around $39,000.

But, she claimed that she’s able to make $3,500 per month, which equates to $42,000 in a year.

Steph, who is the co-founder of the real estate agency Open House Austin, also showed off the interior of the home.

She revealed that she had connected the electrics and plumbing to the existing home, but had to get permits.

But, TikTokers seemed to misunderstand Steph when she said she’s able to make $3,500 a month.

Albert Perez (@Albert_perez10) thought she was charging $3,500 in rent.

Robert Peart said: “I can’t see anyone paying that high and I live in LA.”

And Cody Edlin posted: “So what you’re charging some poor guy 3500 to live in that a month?”

Steph revealed that she’s not charging a monthly rent of $3,500.

Viewers joked that they couldn’t wait to see the comments from “Karen’s.”

Karen has become a popular term to describe entitled middle-class women who talk down to others.

TikTokers sympathized with Steph after trolls criticized her.

In another video, she said that some people were “triggered” by the $3500 number.

Steph told Insider that the tiny home helps pay for the mortgage of the home she and her fiancé live in.

And, she revealed that around 90 percent of her renters come from Airbnb.

Steph also told the outlet that she tends to choose neutral-colored furniture and most of it comes from secondhand shops or Goodwill.

She said that turning her tiny home into an Airbnb has allowed her to kickstart her real estate career.

The investor said: “There are just so many ways you can be creative, and I cannot emphasize enough the power that comes with eliminating your mortgage payment or your rent.”

Steph is just one of many influencers who are part of the tiny home community.
