This family of 6 is such an inspiration! They left their 3,000 square foot home, bought 20 acres of land in Northern Idaho, lived in an RV inside a pole barn for 8 months, and built their DIY tiny house in the barn for under $20,000! Now they have just started building their dream home — doing all of it debt-free.
Their journey shows how hard work and good financial planning can make a world of difference. The home has a large main room with an L-shaped kitchen and living space, as well as a smaller master bedroom, and a larger kids’ room with mountain views. You can take a full tour of their space below, and then watch the following video for a breakdown of costs (including the cost for the land and pole barn).
In total, their tiny house is about 600 square feet, or 100 square feet per person. How many square feet per person do you think is ideal?

Here’s their Master bedroom with their King-sized bed
Their bathroom has everything but their toilet, which is actually in an adjacent heated utility room.
This is the kids’ room. The oldest daughter has the top bunk, the two boys share the lower bunk, and there is a trundle for the youngest.
View from the kids’ room. Amazing!
Here’s the utility room with a washer and dryer, and their composting toilet.
