Couple’s Tiny House Financial Freedom


This is the story of Laurel and Brandon’s first tiny house. They built it so that they could create financial freedom and the ability to pursue their dream careers and hobbies.

They’ve been living tiny for 5 years now, and have even built other tiny homes which they’ve sold! Besides that, they enjoy nature, their hobbies, and the freedom that their lifestyle offers. Get to know more about this tiny house and their story in this full video tour below. Big thanks to Jenna of Tiny House Giant Journey for sharing the story.

Much of the wood used for building this tiny house came from Brandon’s family’s property, so there’s also a lot of history in it, he said. Plus, it’s local which makes it all that extra special, right?

And here is their table. It folds into this compact side table whenever they don’t need it which saves space. Cool, right? There are even drawers on the sides.

I love the sleeping loft because of the skylight. Getting to stargaze up here would be really special.

    Looks like a well made THOW. One thing we notice ALL our THOW peers have in common with us is their need for shed roofs which allow for a higher roof area in the sleeping loft so you can stand up a bit rather than crawl to the bed. Even more so if you are age 50+ or are unable to put pressure on a knee.
    And we also agree, having a real couch that is comfortable to sit on and welcoming to visitors is a MUST. Nothing screams ‘you are not welcome here’ more than a stiff uncomfortable couch in a THOW.

    Noticing the stairs with the storage spaces inside of them.
    Was just a few years ago Alex showed us one in one of his articles….now E-V-E-R-Y-O-N-E includes those in their tiny house.
    Way to sway the movement, Alex. -b

    Well I hate compose toilets. I would put in a RV low flush toilet. How big is this house? Is it 26×8.6? They build these and sell them,so how much do they sell them for? Also I would bring the door flushed with the front of house to give more room inside and add a 4 foot wide porch to the front of house. Great job Guys!

    Yes people over the age of 55 years old need a REAL sofa sofa. I look at pictures of sofas in other tiny homes and they look so so uncomfortable. I would in a L-shape so you can relaxed and enjoy. So important.

      Don’t blame you one bit! I think this is oftentimes an issue that is overlooked due to the excitement of going tiny. I’m glad you brought it up.
