Brian and Stella Sullivan used to pay big rent to live in a two-bedroom apartment near Seattle and felt like finances were always tight and they weren’t spending quality time together as a family.

But when Brian got a job offer that would have required a two-hour commute, they ditched the conventional apartment life and created Big Bertha, a solar-powered bus conversion perfect for their family of five.

Freedom. Freedom with our money, our time and our location. [..] The most important thing in life is people, and spending the most time with our family and children was a huge priority. We were not about to sacrifice our family time to work multiple jobs, paying for a lifestyle we didn’t want. [..] Less space, less stuff, less time cleaning, less stress. More time to enjoy life and our children.

This is a video tour of their awesome tiny dwelling.

This is one family’s 200 sq. ft. travel trailer tiny house conversion story.

We’re James + Sarah, two passion-seeking nomads who are genuinely inspired by the world around us. We’re living full-time in a 2005 Jayco Jayflight with our baby daughter, Stella and dog, Lavender.

Our beloved self-made home named NOLA,  whom we renovated out of a FEMA trailer, was originally purposed for citizens of New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. She found her way to us and we spent the summer of 2015 completely renovating her interior.

This is one woman’s amazing DIY tree house in Miami where she raised her three children.

Outside, you’ll notice a huge tree with a cozy home tucked inside its strong branches. The farm on which this house is located has many other small huts and structures, so you get a different look depending on what you focus on.

When you go inside, you’ll find her open-air bedroom. She has a queen bed up against one wall with a railing for safety. The wide roof overhang keeps her dry and she wakes up to the gentle breeze from outside. The main living space has the same open-air feel with similar wide roof overhangs. When you go inside, you’ll find a desk, couch, and a full kitchenette with a sink, refrigerator and a three-burner stove and oven.

Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!

In this video based post you’ll get to see how a family of five lives in an 850 sq. ft. small house that’s 100 years old. And if you do the division, that’s only 170 sq. ft. per person. So if you really wanted to, you can say that they’re living tiny, right?

But it’s really more of a ‘normal’ small house with fenced in yard (which is great!). They even bought a shed that they’ll later on be turning into a tiny house to use as a guest house later on. You can get the full story from Talya Rose in the video below so you can learn how and why they’re living in this little home as a growing family.

I think they made a great decision for their life long-term because it seems like this house will work well for them for many years to come if not for the rest of their lives. What do you think about families and tiny houses? In your opinion, should they go tiny or go small instead? Please share your best thoughts in the comments below. Thank you.
