Social Worker’s Tiny House Retirement

This post contains affiliate links.

Susan is a former dialysis social worker who was tired of working but couldn’t retire without selling her home. So she hired Movable Roots to build a custom tiny house, downsized, and moved to a Florida tiny house community. It’s been two years, and she hasn’t looked back.

She loves her home, with a small deck off the front for relaxing, a comfortable couch where she hangs out with her dog and a custom staircase that allows her to stand in her loft bedroom. Let us know in the comments which feature of her home was your favorite!

  • After a lifelong career, Susan was tired of working and wanted to retire.
  • In order to afford retirement, she needed to sell her regular house and go tiny.
  • Movable Roots built her custom home for $160,000. Since it’s her “forever home” she made sure all the features were what she wanted.
  • At 4’11”, she asked the builder to create a shorter staircase for her so she can stand in her loft bedroom.
  • She has a gorgeous kitchen with a bold backsplash.
