UPDATE: Added floor plan picture!

While this family isn’t living anywhere close to “tiny” in their 1,500 square foot home, they intentionally purchased a small home (did you know the average size of new homes in the US is 2,687 square feet?) after looking at many large opulent homes, and being inspired to live more simply by Marie Kondo.

I love this story because it shows that even if you aren’t ready to squeeze your family into under-400 square feet, you can still choose to live more simply and reap the benefits of minimalism. Bigger isn’t always better! Mom, Elena, said she was stressed out thinking about keeping up with the housework in the larger homes they were touring, so when she came across a small gem, it clicked!

We got to interview Elena (@elena_winn) about their choice to live small and downsize, so be sure to check out the Q&A at the end of the post!

This inspiring couple had a dream to live with their sons off-grid and debt-free, and they made that a reality with their $6,000 tent home on a riverbank in New Mexico!

They’re such an inspiration that Living Big in a Tiny House has done two video interviews with the couple: During this most recent tour we get to see the family’s finished solar set-up, new outdoor shower, and fresh bedroom layout for their 16×20 wood-frame tent cabin.

Enjoy the video tour and be sure to follow the family on Instagram (@denforourcubs) to keep up!

With stories of people creating their very own all-electric motorhomes and van conversions, it can’t be long before we actually see something like a ‘Tesla Motorhome’ become available, right? In fact, there’s already news of an all-electric VW bus coming back to the United States.

That’s why I’m glad Motor1.com created this now viral rendering. Why wouldn’t Tesla possibly create an all-electric motorhome? And if not Tesla, then why not any other RV manufacturer that can simply use a Tesla Semi or maybe the upcoming Tesla Pick Up Truck as a base?

This is the Tvan Camper Trailer by Track Trailer in Australia. It’s a micro travel trailer that you can tow with just about any vehicle, including off-road vehicles.

Once you’re at your camping site, the rear folds out into a tent with a platform at the bottom. On one side of the camper, there’s a nice outdoor kitchen compartment that you can pull out. It also features an awning that sets up in less than two minutes right above your kitchen area. It’s very, very cool!

Take a look at it below and let us know what you think in the comments.
