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.

The Dekker family (@thedekkertrekkers) loved spending months at a time traveling in their pop-up camper, so they decided to bite the bullet and get a larger RV to travel in full-time. After six months on the road, they ended up finding an adorable tiny cabin in Colorado to fix up and act as their home base.

Right now they’re renovating the cabin so they can winter there and then head out in their RV during the warmer months. Honestly, it’s the best of both worlds! They can rent it as an Airbnb to help offset the costs of full-time travel. I can’t wait to see what the cabin looks like when it’s done, but for now enjoy pictures of their RV renovation.

Also, there’s a Q&A with them at the end of the post you won’t want to miss.

Katy and Michael transformed a storage shed on some family property into their adorable 280-square-foot farmhouse! The couple have two girls, and together they just finished their second week of tiny living.

Their main goal in going tiny was to save money so they can eventually build their own spot. After years of renting, they wanted a home that really looked like “theirs” while being able to save. They spent just $15,000 on this amazing build, which includes a downstairs bedroom, bathroom, and an open-concept living and kitchen space.

They’re located in Round Top, Texas and shared their story with us below! Enjoy!

Shed-Turned-Farmhouse: A Family Tiny Home

Sometimes living tiny is a lifestyle choice, and other times it’s a stepping stone on a journey. For this awesome family of five, downsizing into a camper is allowing them to save a whopping $1,500/month so they can save up to buy land and build their dream home. The Price family is a great lesson in delayed gratification.

That said, their home (while tiny) is gorgeous! It’s light and airy with fun pops of color, and a far cry from the drab and dark canvas they started with. Despite being cooped up in an itty-bitty space with three kids under three, mom Angelina said her love life with husband Cliff has been better than ever before because the only place they can really hang out once the kids are asleep is in their bed 😂 Amazing!

We got to interview Angelina about living tiny with littles, so be sure to read that Q&A after the photo tour! And go ahead and follow the family on Instagram here.

When this couple first met, they jumped into travelling and ended up eloping! But when a baby came, they settled back into standard “American” life with their three-car garage and large home.

The coming of the pandemic gave them the “go-ahead” to chase their nomadic dreams once again. They felt like it was finally ok to homeschool and start traveling with their kids in tow. So they rented out their home, bought a partially-finished bus, and made the space their own!

Enjoy the video tour with Jenna of Tiny House Giant Journey below!

The Kaja Project: Family of 5 Hit the Road in a Skoolie

We’ve seen plenty of Skoolie families, or tiny house families, but a van family? They are few and far between! And this one didn’t just jump into tiny living a year or two ago — they’ve been doing it for seven whole years. They’ve proved any naysayers wrong, showing that a family of 4 with two school-aged kids can happily share a Sprinter as a home.

The kids’ even have their own room in what’s normally the “garage.” And yes, this home has a toilet and shower! We got to interview mom, Julia, and she said she can’t imagine being as close to her kids if they lived a “normal” life in suburbia. And because they’ve been parenting tiny since their oldest was one, she said she doesn’t know any other kind of life with kids!

Be sure to read our Q&A with her at the end of the post, and follow the family’s amazing van journey on Instagram.
