In 2018, Heather sold her traditional home and later moved into a 380 square foot THOW built by Mitchcraft Tiny Homes. Heather spent more than a year creating hundreds of layouts for her dream tiny, until she settled on one that would work for her and her teenage son.
The tiny house features a private bedroom over the gooseneck for her son, and her own private loft bedroom on the other side of the home. In the middle is her spacious living room and kitchen, and a bathroom with a full-sized tub for soaking! Up above the bathroom, Heather has her own art studio for her lovely oil paintings.
Now Heather (@heatherdhansen) can work less and live more comfortably than before, spending $450/month on her rental spot with stunning mountain views! Check out the video tour with Jenna from Tiny House Giant Journey below.

The house has a cozy cabin/farmhouse vibe.
Over the bathroom, you can see Heather’s painting loft.
There’s a desk and comfortable storage couch in the living space.
Her son has his own private gaming area in his room!
Heather is happy with her choice to downsize!

Nice tiny house. I like the outside look too. Am first to comment, lucky me. Inside looks comfortable.
I liked the build but the video didn’t show very good angles of the rooms to see the overall look of things like the boys room and her desk and loft areas. Not sure why bc usually Jenna’s videos are very good.
