Steve and Di were living in an urban apartment when Di started crunching numbers and realizing that having a child was going to make it tough to make ends meet. That’s when she and Steve decided that a DIY tiny house would give them more time with their son, less time at work, and would allow them to get closer to the land.
They’ve been living tiny for about 5 years and have moved their home a couple of times before ending up in their current rural homestead in Australia. The house is off-grid with solar power and a composting toilet, a garden, and animals. They love their remote and quiet life, especially spending time on the huge porch that wraps around two of the walls.

- Di and Steve were wondering how they were going to keep up with their pricey apartment life once they had a baby and Di was off work. Steve thought he’d need to put in extra hours, which would prevent him from spending time with his son.
- The couple chose to go tiny instead! They used tons of reclaimed and recycled materials to keep the costs down and to make the home extra sustainable.
- All in all, they only spent around $20K (USD) on the build. They’ve been living in it now for five years.
- Their current location is super remote and required a lot of time and careful work to get the home into place. It’s entirely off grid with a composting toilet, solar panels, and a water collection system.
- The huge wrap-around porch nearly doubles their living space and they have a giant couch they can all lay on that looks out over their property in Australia. Amazing!
