PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WJAR) - If America can run on Dunkin', why can't one tiny house?

The 275-square-foot Home That Runs on Dunkin' is temporarily sitting oceanside in the Massachusetts town of Nahant.

Officials with Dunkin' Brands say spent coffee grounds power the home. They said to make 1 gallon of fuel, it takes 170 pounds of coffee.

Dunkin' Brands listed the home on Airbnb and for the next two weeks, seven couples will spend two nights apiece at $10 a night.
