Her Self-Built Mom and Daughter Tiny House

This single mom wanted a way to raise her daughter in their own space, and regular homeownership was out of the question financially. But a DIY tiny home? Stephanie knew she could do it if she committed herself! And she did!

For the past six years, she’s been living with her daughter in their custom house on wheels, and just recently she was able to move the tiny house onto their very own piece of land! They have a whole off-grid set-up and love the freedom of this lifestyle. Watch their tour below.
