Woman Living in a Tiny House Loves the Small Space and Financial Freedom

Christine is a dental assistant who decided that she wanted to live in a tiny house for three reasons: because she likes small spaces, because she wanted to be comfortable financially, and because she wanted to have a smaller environmental footprint.

Her ex-husband George built her tiny house after she committed to the project by buying a $6000 trailer.  The tiny house is built with extended roof trusses which double as the home’s framing. The insulation is a combination of rigid foam insulation and spray foam insulation.

For heat, hot water, and cooking Christine uses propane; and she hopes to have solar panels installed at her next location for electricity and then she’ll be fully off the grid.

For now Christine has parked her tiny house in the backyard of a friend for the first year, and after that she’s looking to find a tiny house community of like minded people.

While the idea of living in a house that is technically illegal (where it’s currently parked), Christine is still very happy with her investment, with her home, and with her lifestyle. Living tiny has allowed her to live a simple life with fewer expenses; and that makes her happy.
