Thieves steal house posted: Jan 05, 2015 8:45 AM ESTUpdated: Jan 05, 2015 9:04 AM EST A San Antonio, Texas couple had build a 'tiny house' to commit themselves to 'green living' but the entire home ended up being stolen. Casey Friday says, "It was depressing, devastating, made me angry and shocked all at the same time." An advocate for so-called green living, Friday and his wife had invested 2 1/2 years and $35,000 into building a tiny home from the ground up. They had just moved it to a plot of land they had purchased in Spring Branch. However, someone stole it, leaving behind only a damaged paver driveway they had recently built. After a local TV station reported on the theft, the house was reported being found on the south side of town. Neighbors had apparently seen it for days but did not know it was stolen. Friday says, "There was a lot of frustration and anger at the beginning." He also said that he was pleased with the response and support he's received on social media since the house was reported missing. Though they have the house back, they don't know if they want to live in it anymore after signing a lease for an apartment. Friday says he may sell it to someone who wouldn't be able to afford it otherwise. The Bear County Sheriff's Office says the person who stole the house will face charges but officials say that the thief is not necessarily the owner of the property where the tiny house was found. As for how the house was stolen, it was on a trailer that the thief simply attached to a truck and drove off with. On his blog, Friday wrote: "I'll be completely honest – I didn't even know that a hitch lock was a 'thing' before our house was stolen. I only researched them after the house was gone. I am now WELL aware of multiple forms of security that I hope ALL tiny housers will implement on their own Tiny House builds."
