Big Hearts Tiny Vegans – Photo 1

Zach & Leala from Big Hearts Tiny Vegans designed this unique and beautiful 24-foot long tiny house and built it from paycheque to paycheque, as well as with gifts of time and materials from family and friends.  

It cost them approximately $40,000 CAD ($31,175 USD) to build the 200-sq.-ft. house, including the cost of appliances.

Ultima Thule Family – Exploring Alternatives

Bryce and Misty paid off their debts, left the city, and have spent the last 12 years building a cob home, homesteading, living off the grid, and homeschooling their two daughters.

They live without a car, so for transportation, they use taxis and bicycles, and they eventually hope to have a cart that their two horses can pull.

Garage to Tiny Home Conversion 1

This 470 square foot garage conversion is on the Sunshine Coast in Gibsons, BC and the owners converted it into a rental space on Airbnb as a form of house hacking to help pay their mortgage!

It’s kind of like a micro cabin but instead of being out in the woods, it’s in a backyard and close to stores and other services.
