Michele’s Pawsitively Tiny House Update – Living Tiny For 5 Years And Going

This is the story of Michele’s Pawsitively Tiny House. Recently, she reached five years living in her tiny house, and has recently made some pretty big changes, which I’ll allow her to fill you in on… Enjoy! 🙂

This is year 5 living in my tiny, and I have had many changes in the last 6 months. After living in the country for 3 years, I decided to move back to the city, (Cleveland, Ohio) to be closer to family.

Michele’s Pawsitively Tiny House Life in 2019 – Big Move And Interior Redecoration

Micheles Pawsitively Tiny House Update 2019 001 – On the Road

It was sad to rehome my pigs and chickens and leave but I am so very happy now that I did it. I am living legal in a mobile home park surrounded by metro parks on two sides and Lake Erie on the other and very cat friendly. There are 2 other tiny houses here and more to come very soon.

My house is built on a reinforced camper frame, (so I am a legal RV), and I felt it would be safer to move it on a RGN trailer rather than tow it 100 miles. The move was flawless, tho it was stressful following behind your house flying down the highway at 65 mph.

I absolutely love living in my tiny house. You are not confined on style, for a few hundred dollars you can completely change your interior and get a brand new look. I decided to update my interior, and wanted to share the new pics of it and update my story. I hope your readers can get inspiration to do the same if they are bored with their current decor!

    I love your tiny house.
    The way you decorated it is beautiful.
    I wish I were good at figuring out how to place things, I live in 447 sq. ft. and don’t feel as though I’m utilizing the space properly.

    Hi Michele, I absolutely love your tiny house! I’m not as “lacy” as you are, but I’m definitely one of the “Queens of Shabby Chic”. Your place is just delightful. I’ve pretty much decided to do a van conversion on a Ram PowerMaster box truck that I plan to live in. Your sweet little place has shown me that I can Shabby Chic the truck with some of my favorite things that will really make it feel like home. Thanks for your inspiration. Diane Young

      Hi, I love to see tiny houses on wheels. I would like to stay in it one day.

  • October 28, 2019, 7:31 pm

    Probably my favorite Tiny house. I feel it is EXACTLY what makes a home a home. True I would extend it to put the bedroom down but keep the decore and style. A little help on the foot traffic stair surfaces maybe is the only major change I can see. Countertops might need a rework as well. So often too much is expected when all you really need is a change of habits to find happiness with the sace you have. A single person using this format to pattern their own hideaway can be very successful be it Boho, Shabby Chic or simply a country cabin recycled look via Tiny Texas Houses. Looking for an example, Start Here.

    Beautiful! I love your tiny home and the decorating is perfect. I have been in my tiny home for 14 months now and love it. I live in a beautiful forested area and there is an area here for tiny homes. There are about 40 here now with good sized lots and room for gardening. I am still looking to find some “perfect” items for my home for decorating and you have given me some ideas and inspiration. I cannot imagine living in anything other than a tiny home now. Loving tiny home living!

    I love your home so much. I am learning all I can to start my new journey to do same. I find it hard to find out what laws and things I need to know so far. I am 62 and my grandson and I are learning all we can. I wish you great happiness in your new place. Thank you for sharing.

    I’d like to know how they managed to put it on the truck for transporting. Did they take the wheels or the frame off it beforehand. When looking at it the pix of the tiny on the truck it appears those features don’t exist. How did they tie it down. If no wheels, how did they manage to unload it?

      A RGN trailer drops to the ground in the front, so I had a tow truck company load it and unload it for me. The wheels stayed on, so it could be rolled on and off. It was over legal height so the trucking company just got a permit. Total height of house on trailer was 14′ 2″ . They strapped the frame to the trailer, it was actually very easy.

    Love your house. Wish I had the building plans. I plan on going Tiny by the end of next year. I’ll be 65 and I’m going to put my two grown children and my grandson in my house that I own now. This way I don’t have to sell anything.
