She Built This Beautiful Tiny Home After Divorce

You may remember Michele’s story when we first featured her back in 2017. Today, we’ve got an update from her to share with you!

All is good with Michele, thankfully. And she’s made a few changes to her tiny home to share with us.

Michele’s got a new barn, three pot belly pigs, and two goats! Plus, some new decorations. Enjoy!

I decided to go tiny after living on a boat in NYC for a year. My 4 children are adults and live on their own, and I got a divorce in 2014. By living tiny with very little expenses, I am able to pursue my passion of rescuing animals and working in a non-profit animal shelter.

Be sure to read our interview with Michele from 2017 right here.

    I recall seeing this once before and loving it. Now with the garden in full bloom, it is even more lovely. It was nice to see a Victorian, shabby-chic, feminine tiny house for a change. It really appeals to me!

    I loved it the first time I saw it featured. You did such a wonderful job making it look like a home and not a cookie-cutter tiny house. God bless you in your new life and thank you for sharing!
