This couple is living legally in their off-grid tiny house and homestead! They live in a 24 ft. THOW in Arizona and describe themselves as “digital entrepreneur nomads” promoting “a minimalistic debt free lifestyle.”

You can see a few screenshots of their crisp, modern tiny house below, and then watch a number of their videos from their YouTube channel, Life inside a Box. The couple started their “vlogs” when they first got the idea to build the house, and now they have hundreds of videos documenting the entire process, including DIY videos for those who want to follow their lead.

I love that they go into detail about the different off-grid aspects of their life, as well as dedicate time to telling us what about their tiny house they’d change, how much the house cost and how they are living legally! You might lose a few hours watching all their videos — don’t say I didn’t warn you!

This is Derek and Hannah. They’re a married couple with a tiny house on wheels in Tucson, Arizona! I think they have one of the nicest showers I’ve ever seen in a THOW!

My wife Hannah and I are beginning the build of our tiny house on a trailer. We currently live in Tucson, Arizona and plan to do the entire build here. We are both digital nomads. We work at home and make our entire income from promoting a plant-based vegan diet on YouTube and from our best selling recipe books. You can find all of that information on our website, Raw Till Whenever.
