They’re still young with two small children who are getting to share a sleeping loft with each other.
But don’t worry- the plan is to save up for a ‘small’ house in the very near future. They plan on paying for it in cash.
When you take the tour I think some of you will agree with me that the home is tiny yet still luxurious with its tongue and groove pine walls and elegant simplicity.
The family moved into this tiny house from a 1,500 square foot 3 bedroom home. A drastic change, but with pleasing results. Mom is able to save her entire paychecks.
They used Craigslist to find salvaged/reclaimed materials to keep construction costs low and did most of the work themselves.

Their utility bill is just $40 a month. Most of their other costs have been drastically reduced too. This is allowing them to save up incredibly fast.
