Le Koroc is a beautifully handcrafted tiny houseboat built by Richard’s company, Daigno, in Quebec, Canada.
From the outside, it’s hard to believe there’s a full kitchen, a full bathroom (with shower), a large dinette that converts into a bed, and another smaller eating area crammed into this micro cabin. Not to mention the enormous deck for enjoying the water and fresh air!
Pat & Mel built this tiny house in Ontario, Canada as a way to stop paying rent, and to start living a simple, minimalist lifestyle.
They lived in it completely off the grid for 3 years while it was parked on a friend’s land, but they recently decided to sell the tiny home and buy a house because it was cheaper than buying vacant land (a down payment on a piece of land in Ontario is often 35%, while the cost of a down payment on a home is often as low as 5%).
While they were living in the house, they were completely off the grid. They used a wood stove for heat, solar panels for electricity, propane for hot water and cooking, and they collected rainwater for all of their water needs. They used a composting toilet (Nature’s Head) since they didn’t have access to a septic system.
Christine is a dental assistant who decided that she wanted to live in a tiny house for three reasons: because she likes small spaces, because she wanted to be comfortable financially, and because she wanted to have a smaller environmental footprint.
Her ex-husband George built her tiny house after she committed to the project by buying a $6000 trailer.
The tiny house is built with extended roof trusses which double as the home’s framing. The insulation is a combination of rigid foam insulation and spray foam insulation.
After finishing school, Jocelyn and Jarvis had $96,000 of debt from student loans, credit cards, and buying a small rural property.
They made some big changes to their lifestyle – using cash instead of credit, buying nothing new, and moving to a smaller apartment – and they were able to pay off their entire debt in 20 months.
After getting out of debt, they had the option to buy a conventional home but they didn’t want a mortgage, even though a mortgage isn’t necessarily a bad debt to have. Instead, they saved up some money and built themselves a tiny house, starting with a trailer that had already been framed by someone else.
