Meet B.A. Norrgard. She’s a woman who attended a Four Lights Tiny House Workshop in February of 2013. After the event, she bought the Gifford tiny house plans and started building.

Five months later, her little house on wheels is complete. And now she’s been hired as COO to work with Jay Shafer and the rest of his Four Lights Tiny House Company team in California. Now that’s a pretty awesome story, isn’t it?

Once upon a time she was a litigation paralegal. And she desired a change. Now she’s helping others simplify their lives to live more purposeful lives. Just like she’s doing. Jay Shafer is calling her a “tiny house superhero.” And right now I just felt I had to introduce you to her. So, please, take a video tour of her new tiny house below, enjoy, and re-share if you feel compelled to!

If you haven’t seen Jay Shafer’s latest 312 sq. ft. tiny U-house cabin design that’s coming soon (it isn’t officially released yet) then you’ll get to preview it here right now.

This is a much larger tiny house relative to Shafer’s earlier designs that range from 65 to 200 sq. ft. but this one is geared towards the ‘average’ person since not many are cut out to live in 100 square feet.

So this new tiny cabin design has just enough space for all of your modern day needs. It includes a washer and dryer, full kitchen, full bathroom, large refrigerator, full-sized bed, dishwasher, dining space for 6, store space, and even an extra bed for guests

I ran into this news segment on the Tiny House Movement by Global News 16×9 in Canada.

The episode takes you on an adventure into a few people’s lives who live very tiny lives.

And the question is, for these people, do small spaces mean more freedom?

But it’s not just that. These micro homes are also much better for the environment.

What do you small spaces- including tiny homes- mean to you?

Since 1997, Jay Shafer has been wowing the world with his incredible tiny house designs.

In 2002 he co-founded the Small House Society with Gregory Johnson.

Last year he split with his original company, Tumbleweed, and founded Four Lights Tiny House Company.

“I’m always fidgeting with how to make spaces more efficient,” says Jay.

Today he’s working on constantly improving ways to make his tiny houses as flexible as possible so you can adjust the homes to your needs as easily as possible.
