Bette Presley, of Arroyo Grande, was already living relatively small before she decided to go tiny.
She downsized from her Grandmothers’ Club mobile home park into her own Tumbleweed Tiny House of just 166 square feet.
Part of the goal, she says, is to save her five adult children from having to go through all of her belongings when she passes.
Even better, she hopes she can completely avoid having to go into a nursing home and instead staying her beautiful Tumbleweed cabin.

Since the clutter is now gone, she can enjoy nature, live simply, and enjoy her family more.
She recently cleared most of her unwanted belongings from her previous mobile home which included getting rid of her:
- extra beds,
- large chairs,
- and more!
She still has a laptop, cell phone, and radio to entertain herself.
And, of course, her new Tumbleweed Tiny House has a kitchenette, mini refrigerator, bathroom, and A/C.
At just 8′ x 24′ it’s a truly tiny home. But inside you’ll still find a platform twin bed downstairs, plenty of built-in shelving for storage, and there’s even an upstairs sleeping loft with a queen bed for guests!
Since Bette is inspired not just by living simply but also to go off the grid, she will soon be adding enough solar panels to go completely off grid.
Congratulation on your new found freedom, Bette! We’re really happy for you!
