After graduating college, JP decided to take his rescue dog, Chance on the trip of a lifetime in a renovated 1995 Sportsmobile. Chance’s previous life was hard, but now he goes where JP goes, spending hours of everyday outside and exploring!

JP does freelance photography work to fund his travels, and has a great hanging space in his van for his nice clothes for wedding work. He loves to host friends even in his compact space, so he has some board games tucked away and four cups and dishes for whoever wants to join him.

This is a 2021 update of the MiniMotives family tiny house. You may remember Macy Miller, who originally built the tiny house over a decade ago for less than $12,000. Over the years, the tiny house has evolved as well as moved. See below to learn more!

An updated tour of our tiny home which was built for $11,416 ten years ago. We have called this home for nearly a decade, it once sat downtown in an urban core, now it has gained legal status and moved off grid to property we purchased with the money saved while living tiny.

With the help of her brother, Holly built her daughter, Tilly, a tiny home to act as her college dorm! The pandemic made Holly and Tilly realize how little of their huge home they actually used, and Tilly had a lot of anxiety about what her future was going to look like.

That’s when they came up with a plan: Sell the big house, purchase Indigo River Tiny House plans, DIY their own awesome build, move to Colorado (where Tilly wants to go to college) and get the benefits of in-state tuition when the time comes!

Tilly gets the home as long as she needs it, providing that once she has a post-college career that she pays back her mom for the build so her mom has some retirement funds. In the meantime, Holly and her partner purchased an RV and they plan to travel the US while working remotely.

Emily traveled Australia in a suitcase and lived in a 300-square-foot apartment before hopping on the #vanlife wagon, so you might assume she’d transition into her van without much trouble. But she was honest — it took about 5 months before she really felt like her vehicle was “home,” and it’s harder to live in your car than you’d think!

Her candid interview tells it like it really is — and she shares her #solofemaletraveler tips for avoiding murderers in the back of your van (with a tinge of dark humor, of course). Right now she has a full-time job (with an onsite shower) and stays parked in one spot most of the time, but she’s hoping to hit the road at some point and explore all Canada has to offer.
