Marc & Jen (and their cat, Starla) from Box Truck Tessa are an adventurous couple who decided to sell their home, downsize their stuff, and try something new.

They wanted to re-design their lives according to what was most important to them: skiing, hiking, traveling, making music, and being self-employed. So they decided that a box truck would be the best way to accomplish that.

This custom tiny house was designed built by Summit Tiny Homes for Liza (pronounced Lisa).

She was looking for an affordable cottage to enjoy with her two daughters in the short term, and for a home she could relax and retire in later on. She called it The Magnolia after her mom’s favourite tree.

This is the story of a couple who built their very own off-grid island. They’ve been living there for over 27 years now, and have added on quite a bit to it. It’s called Freedom Cove in Tofino, BC.

It all started with a tiny floating cabin they built with driftwood that washed ashore after a storm. And since 1992, they have been living in it and adding on to it. Pretty incredible, isn’t it? Please enjoy the video below from Exploring Alternatives for the full story.
