Tiny house living isn’t always forever, but it’s often a wonderful chapter for individuals, couples, and families looking to save money. That was the case with the Krebs, who transformed an old shed into a gorgeous farmhouse tiny home and lived in it for a year and a half while renovating their forever home. We interviewed them right at the beginning of their tiny life, and now we are back with an update!

The family has plans to put their shed-to-tiny home on Airbnb (a great source of passive income) and live in their “big house” with their two girls. Enjoy the photos and interview with Katy below, and then stick around for the video tour from February 2022.

This family of five (soon to be six!) has been living in their renovated toy hauler now for about two years. They got started on the tiny living journey when husband Troy became a travel nurse — an RV allowed his wife Elizabeth and their three girls to take home wherever he went for work!

They purchased the RV for about $45K and put $3K into the renovation. Using mostly paint, they were able to take the dark “stock RV” and make it into a lovely boho home that’s lovely and inviting. Enjoy the photo tour and their interview below!

This wonderful family was frustrated by the rising costs of rentals in the UK, and it led them to explore other living opportunities. That’s when they found van life on YouTube and Instagram and started thinking maybe they could live tiny as well!

So they found a van, moved in with family and started their wonderful conversion for a once-in-a-lifetime adventure. Enjoy their story in their own words below!

Every now and again, we see a home that just makes our jaws drop — and this is one of them! This amazing Norwegian family designed and built an incredible glass dome around their cob house built only from natural and reclaimed materials.

The dome allows them to grow grapes, veggies and multiple fruit trees, and they have a wastewater recycling system that waters their plants from the water they use in the house. The whole set-up is mind-blowing, so please enjoy the video below!

Pretty sure we’ve never seen this many coffee-making apparatuses in a tiny home before, but for this coffee-loving couple and their two kids, it’s a must! They run a family-owned coffee distribution/pop-up cart so of course, they need a spot to try out all the varieties.

Below, we have a video tour of the family’s DIY tiny house on wheels, but that’s not their only compact home! They also have a van conversion and sailboat that they rotate in and out of depending on the season and where their coffee business leads them. What a cool life!

Everyone has different reasons for choosing nomadic living, but for this family, #buslife is giving them the opportunity to scout out the country in search of land to put a home and homestead! They don’t have any particular ties to one place, so they are trying out all the places.

This is actually their second bus conversion, this one is much larger and comes with tons of undermount storage, including what will be a secret playroom for their daughter! They have oodles of solar power (enough to run an ice machine in their full-size fridge), tons of windows, and a gorgeous design.

You might remember Kirt and Jen’s family as the family of four living full-time in their Sprinter van! As their boys grew up, they decided they needed more room — but they didn’t go the traditional route of re-purchasing a home. Instead, they built out this DIY Overlander that doubled their space and made it easier for them to stay boondocking for a couple of weeks at a time.

Their Overlander is a combination of a dualie truck and a brand new specialized box that they attached to it and converted into a home. The space inside has a large kitchen, bunks for the boys, and a standard queen-sized bed for mom and dad. They also have a shower and toilet in their mini bathroom and an incredible fold-out outdoor space with an awning.

Just wait until you see this amazingly well-organized Airstream tiny home owned by an adorable couple of entrepreneurs. They started downsizing their stuff a few years ago until they finally realized they didn’t need that 2500-square foot home anymore! So they started traveling and staying in Airbnbs.

When 2020 hit, they needed a home base, so they moved into an Airstream. They’ve been living in that ever since and are welcoming a baby soon! In this tiny home, literally every little thing has a home/container and it’s pretty amazing. Tell us what you think in the comments.
