Mom and Teen Daughter in Their Expanding THOW


After a divorce, this single mother was looking for a place that she and her teen daughter could call home. They were downsizing from more than 3,000 square feet, but not wanting to get into the rental market again, this mom chose to go tiny!

She was able to park her THOW, built by Mint Tiny House Company in Canada, on her parent’s property under an exemption for caretakers. Now she’s able to take care of her elderly parents, and give her teen daughter a cool hangout (all her friends love that she lives in a tiny house).

The home has two large slide-outs that give its road-worthy 8-foot dimensions lots of extra wiggle room. Oh and mom has her own downstairs bedroom. Enjoy the full video tour below!

High ceilings add even more “space” to this little home.

Lots of quality time for mom and daughter.

She has a private spot despite being on her parent’s property.

    Wonderful layout, I agree be about adding a wall cabinet or shelving – slide outs make be all the difference!

    Wow! this tiny totally impressed me — didn’t see anything I didn’t like. Very creative use of space — especially nice that there is a backyard area — very charming and great way to enjoy entertaining. Perfect!!!

    This is lovely and in such a pretty setting. It’s nice to be near family and yet have your own space. Of course, most of us parents don’t mind you dropping in whenever you like to visit or help out, and being so close by for emergencies is priceless. This is such a nice arrangement.
