I included Jenna’s video tour of the house below the pictures, and I also got in touch with Jadon and Katie myself and asked them some questions about their tiny life and adorable tiny home.
Their house is completely custom, built by Canadian tiny house builder, Mint Tiny Homes. It has one of the most amazing bathroom/mudrooms I’ve ever seen in a tiny, and it includes a back-wall staircase which is one of the best ways to include stairs in a THOW in my opinion.
So tune out the world for a few minutes and enjoy the pictures, video tour and interview below!
Interview (& Video): Jadon and Katie’s Good and Tiny House
Enter through the front doors and find an awesome living room.
Just admire at the kitchen with stove, fridge and microwave.
Love the “his and hers” desk space/eating area.
Beautiful views and nice large blinds. Super classy.
Here’s the bathroom/mudroom. Look at all that space!
One of the two spacious closets inside the bathroom area.
The 36″ x 36″ shower fits the 6′ 1″ Jadon comfortably.
Adorable yellow towels and a handy Nature’s Head composting toilet.
Washer and dryer unit beneath the bathroom counter. Smart!
Loft bedroom with built-in bookshelf in the back.
Aww! Here’s the puppy’s favorite hang-out.
Love their retractable awning! That’s so smart.
Interview with Jadon and Katie Good
What are your name(s)?
Jadon and Katie Good
How many people (and animals) will are living in your tiny house?
Just us our little 12 lbs dog named Maisy (She’s a Teddy Bear – half shih tzu & half bichon)
Where do you live?
Now that we are in our THOW, we’ll be in Wisconsin for half the year and somewhere else the other half! We just got back from the Pacific Northwest.
Why did you decide to go tiny? What are you hoping to get out of living tiny?
We went tiny so that could keep our roots here in WI (family, friends, jobs, etc.) and yet still get to explore other parts of the country. We love to travel, but you can only learn so much about a city or state in the few days a vacation provides. Staying for half the year allows us to really get to know those other places.
How did you first learn about tiny houses?
We learned about them by seeing them on TV on networks like HGTV. Once we were a little more serious about them, we stayed at a tiny house village in the Mt Hood area. Jadon also took a two-day tiny house workshop.
How long did it take to finish your tiny house?
From order to pickup, the process took around six months. The actual build took around 3-4 months.
How did you build your tiny house? Did you have any help? Did you do it yourselves?
Our house was built by Mint Tiny Homes. They are amazing and you should definitely go check them out! http://minttinyhomes.com We had initially wanted to build our own, but our timeline for wanting to go tiny didn’t leave us enough time. One of the many reasons we chose Mint was that we were able to do a completely custom build. We gave them drawing after drawing on graph paper and they were able to bring our dreams to life. Since we couldn’t build our own, having a lot of say in the design was a must.
How did you find a place to park and live in your tiny house?
We picked up our house from our builders near Vancouver, BC. After the pickup, we parked our house just north of Portland at an RV Resort. For any tiny houses looking in that area, Silver Cove RV Resort was great 😀
While in WI we will be staying on private property. Each time we travel, our preference is always private property, but we’re always open to what’s available.
Before going tiny, what was life like?
Normal(ish), we guess? Haha. We owned a great house in an amazing location. So there weren’t any major negative factors that pushed us to go tiny. We are just adventurers at heart and saw this as the next big adventure for us!
What benefits are you experiencing after going tiny?
Honestly, the adventure! We’ve already had the chance to really explore another city/state and we can’t wait for the next. And, of course, the awesome “side” benefits of being more environmentally friendly, saving money, and being a part of a growing community of people from around the world.
What about some challenges?
Parking is always a challenge. We were blessed to have some connections for a place to stay in WI. But tracking down parking for the other places we go takes a lot of research, phones calls, etc.
What makes your tiny house special?
Everything!! Haha! But seriously, we really love every part of our THOW. One of the more unique features of our house is the back room. It is a combination mini mud room, bathroom, closet, stairwell, and more. It is bigger than almost any other tiny house bathroom we’ve seen. It has two full closets and a 36″x36″ shower (which is SOO nice). It’s most unique feature, though, is the stairs. Instead of a ladder or stairs that descend down the wall in to the main part of the house, ours are contained on the back wall in a space a less that 4’x4′. It is easy for us (and our tiny dog) to get up and down safely. Another benefit of having it at the back of the house is that it leaves space for a nice big living room/kitchen in the main area.
What is your favorite part of your tiny house?
Wow. Tough question. The bathroom is great. So is the big galley kitchen. And the open living room. Oh, and the drop down porch on the front. Ah, we can’t decide!
What helpful advice would you give to others interested in going tiny?
Plan. Plan some more. Than go run your plans by someone else and plan more after getting their input. Also, stay in and visit as many tiny houses as you can. We can’t stress that enough. The more you see and stay in, the more you know what will and will not work for you.
