For a little backstory, Tim & Sam bought a THOW, Tiffany the Tiny Home, more than three years ago. They ended up buying an island in Florida to give Tiffany a full-time home, and then built their octagonal vacation home by Deltec Homes on the property (following all the proper codes!). Now Tiffany lives full-time on the 1.5 acre island along with the vacation home which you can rent on Airbnb!
Tiny House Tours did an interview with Tim about living in Tiffany, and the financials of tiny house living. He has now paid of Tiffany, and the rental income is taking care of his mortgage and other expenses. Wow! Watch the video below.
