Her Retirement Park Model Tiny House with a Crafting Room

Brandy retired just before 2020, and the pandemic set her on a new path to tiny living. She’s honest about her downsize — it hasn’t been easy to purge her items or give up wall space for relatives’ artwork. But she’s also found ways to make the space work for her, including using her downstairs bedroom as an awesome crafting space (I’m jealous!).

She lives in a tiny house community with community gardens and she loves to cook and prepare the food she’s grown and give it to her neighbors. She sounds like someone you’d love living next door to.

      She doesn’t say, but from the description and the fact she’s in a Tumbleweed Tiny Home by Platinum Cottages (9770 SH 31 W Malakoff, TX 75148)… It would seem likely she’s in Village Farm, in Austin TX…

      On Platinum Cottages website, you’ll also find a list of Parks and Resorts that have at least one of their models…

    I love her honesty on what works for her and what doesn’t. It’s a lovely home.

    What a very nice fit for her at this stage of her life. I like it it a lot — what more does she need?
    It is certainly hard to give up wall space for loved art work and I can certainly commiserate with her.
    Otherwise, I hope she will enjoy what a nice place this is for her to live at this point in her life!!

    seems she is adapting very well – giving up “stuff” is very hard, especially when it has personal meaning. I’m happy to hear that things can be omitted from the original plans of the home and changes can be made to suit the owner, good to know.

    I can’t think of one thing I would change from her home, it is perfect for me as well.

    Sincere congratulations to Brandy! Your home is lovely, perfectly designed, and so livable. What a blessing that U can have the key things that U “must have,” which are beautifully organized. (I’d hate for U to see my small tool closet, as it is something out of a horror movie.) I will pray for your continued good health — at this stage of life (I am 72 and much older than U) each of us must deal with this and/or that health complication. May U live to be 120 years old, with your health complications in check and U continuing to enjoy your upstairs bedroom with morning sunshine greeting U each day through your east window. Kindest regards, Stephan of Arkansas
