This is the story of the Mejia family and how they ended up to downsize into a tiny house that they built themselves. Before they were living tiny, they were super busy, and would hardly really get to spend very much quality time with each other and with their son.
Then, the lay off came. That’s when they started seriously looking into alternatives and ran into the tiny house movement. The rest, as they say, is history. Please enjoy. This story is brought to you by Tiny House Giant Journey. Thanks, Jenna!🙏

Family living in a 338-square-foot tiny house for almost 2 years and why they did it…
After crunching the numbers, as long as they built the house themselves, it would work financially. And so off they went to build their very own custom tiny home on wheels that would allow them to build a solid foundation in other areas of their lives to make improvements (in this case to their relationships, lifestyle, and their finances). On many days, they worked 12 hour days to get it done as soon as they could.

Isn’t it amazing how what was once a dramatic and negative event, actually led them into something really great? Sometimes that happens and it’s so hard to realize it, isn’t it? In this case, they ended up with their very own self-built, mortgage-free 338-square-foot custom tiny home.
And now they live a completely different sort of lifestyle. A more laid back, relaxed life, where they can take better care of themselves and each other. It seems to me like it’s creating a wonderful environment to continue to successfully raise their son. And pretty soon, a few years go by, and their bank accounts will grow (thanks to living tiny). And if they like, they can upsize.😊
