Diana and her husband had a dilapidated cinder block garage in their Oakland, California backyard, but instead of seeing it as an eyesore, they saw it as an opportunity! They turned the space into a lovely guest house called the Rockridge Casita for both family & friends and to rent out on Airbnb. In just four years the tiny house has paid for itself, meaning anything else they get from now on is profit that goes to support the couple and their two kids.

Inside there’s a lovely studio-style space with a queen bed and kitchenette, as well as an ensuite bathroom complete with a large walk-in shower and flush toilet.

When their kids are older, they plan to use the guest house as a homework/hangout space for them, but who knows what the future will bring. Huge thanks to Allison at Tiny Home Tours for the great video tour of this spot you can watch below.

Chad and Leanna — ages 26 & 24 — got married three years ago and knew they wanted out of their oversized townhouse and into tiny life — but they didn’t realize *how* tiny.

They started by gutting and renovating a 30-foot RV, but it was too difficult to travel with, so they decided to downsize into “Vinnie the Van” — a Ram Promaster Campervan. Now the couple and their dog have been on the road for three months.  Leanna is a full time virtual health and wellness coach while Chad is a musician in his band.

Allison over at Tiny Home Tours did an awesome video tour with the couple, which you can watch at the end of the post!

This enchanting tree house is the perfect place to relax. Not only does it have a Hobbit-esque book nook (where you could easily take a nap!), it has an outdoor hot tub/bathing tub where you can soak and take in lovely forest views.

There’s a kitchenette with a retro mini-fridge and hot plate, as well as a king-sized bed with a mosquito net canopy and magical twinkle lights. A garage-style-door opens up the indoors to the spacious outdoor deck. Plus, there’s a modern bathroom complete with a two-headed shower!

You can book your stay in this Fredericksburg, Texas treehouse here.

Carla and Simon lived busy lives before their paths crossed in 2015. They married in 2017, and by 2018 — a bit on a whim — they sold their home, bought a boat, and decided to spend their days sailing the seven seas! Two years later and they’re still loving their life on the water.

They live full-time on their Lagoon 400, along with an orchid and their adorable cat, Dobby. They even survived a storm off of the Bahamas during COVID-19. Their boat was damaged badly enough that the country generously let them moor there and ride out quarantine, despite the fact the country had already closed their borders to outsiders.

To date, the couple have visited some 40 countries on their journey, and they don’t have plans to stop any time soon. You can follow their travels on Instagram, but make sure to watch the tour of their catamaran below.
