Mother & Daughter Leave the City for Country Tiny Home Life


This post contains affiliate links.

Cat and her daughter lived in an apartment in Brisbane, when they were told they had to leave within 8 weeks because the landlord sold the apartment. That and the rising cost of rent was the final straw that convinced Cat to get back to her roots and back out to the countryside!

After designing the perfect tiny house for the two of them, they moved the Eucalyptus-green THOW onto a friend’s gorgeous property in Queensland, Australia. It has everything the two of them need, including space for all her daughter’s toys (her daughter didn’t want to downsize them). What do you think of this lovely tiny house?
