Ashley and Dan spent one year taking their dreams of tiny living and bringing them to life building their very own DIY THOW. Now the couple is expecting a baby, and planning to continue their sustainable, mortgage-free life as a family of three!

They had a budget of $35K for the build, and came in spending about $40K for their 28-foot home on wheels. They did try to use second-hand and repurposed materials as much as possible, and designed the interior with a retro 70s flair. Neither of them had any building experience, so YouTube University taught them everything!

Right now they are parked on some farmland in British Columbia, and they talked to us about their tiny life below. Also, there’s a video tour from their YouTube channel you can enjoy.

Paul and Elaine wanted to spend more time as a family and work on their debt-free journey, which is why they sold their home and moved into their 5th wheel RV which they had owned for vacations.

Elaine homeschools their kids, and while they’re currently fairly stationary, they have plans to do some travelling as Paul’s job allows. You can follow them on Instagram here.

For them, the hardest part of tiny living is rainy days, but the benefits far outweigh the tough stuff. Enjoy their Q&A after the photos and walk-through below.

Sarah learned about #vanlife and wanted to jump right in, but Brandon thought she was crazy when he saw the rusty old van she wanted to purchase. Good news for Sarah, he did some research into van living and found there were other options, so we she came with her PowerPoint about why they should go tiny, he agreed immediately!

And before they knew it, their lease was up and they were done with rent payments, sleeping on the floor of their empty Promaster while making it home.

What a lovely home it is! They have a fantastic kitchen for all their home cooking, a handy swivel seat and even a hanging closet. Enjoy the Tiny Home Tours video below. You can follow the couple on Instagram.
