He Makes $6K/Month Off of His Three Tiny Homes

Ansel is a self-proclaimed “tiny house hacker,” and that’s because he’s figured out how to earn $6,000/month off of the three tiny homes in his backyard! Oh, and they’re all legal dwellings so he doesn’t have to worry about getting shut down.

He owns and lives on the small plot of land where his 800-square-foot home sits, and then he has two THOWs and a detached garage he turned into a luxury ADU. Ansel rents all three spaces on Airbnb and the income has completely changed his life (for the better). Enjoy the tour of all of them below.

  • Ansel is an amazing entrepreneur living in Oakland where he has an 800-square foot home with a detached garage.
  • He started getting interested in tiny homes, and decided to purchase one. He wasn’t sure if people would want to stay there, though.
  • Once that tiny house took off, he decided to convert the garage and get another tiny house.
  • Now he makes $6,000/month, which covers his $1,600 mortgage and leaves him with enough money for his other bills.
  • Each of the tiny homes has a unique design, filled with Ansel’s personality and flair.
