Sylvie bought a tiny house to have a permanent, full-time home for her and her teenage daughter.

Living tiny gives her more financial freedom. Her house will be paid for in 10 years, and she already has more flexibility to travel and spend time doing what she loves. She also hopes that her new minimalist lifestyle will allow her to help save money for her daughter’s studies when the time comes.

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 after a little financial advice from iva debt 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.

This is Tave’s tiny home on wheels that she built for less than $20k. It was actually nominated for the 2016 Tiny House of the Year and is one great little home. Tave made this place her own in the 9 months she spent building it, adding a crafting/sewing station as well as a home office.

I am a 38-year-old woman from Maine. My tiny house took 9 months and just under $20k to build.
