Dad Quits Job to Build and Rent Tiny House Vacations


Matt Shaw had been working a stressful job for years, keeping him away from his wife and children. Together, they set out on a risky adventure — he quit the job and is building tiny vacation homes instead! The venture has been successful, and they now rent out the five tiny homes they built in Hocking Hills, OH to vacationers.

Best of all? They see each other way more and their stress levels have drastically reduced. Below, you’ll get to go on a quick tour of their tiny homes, and you can always book a stay in one yourself!

    I used to work with Matt Shaw at Battelle and would like to talk to him about something and have questions about tiny houses.
