Matt and Linda used to live across the street from each other because they couldn’t find a spot large enough for their blended family. But when they found a fixer-upper with a huge backyard they saw the potential!

That’s when they decided to put twin tiny homes, built by Alternative Living Spaces, in their backyard — one for each teen daughter! The oldest has gone to college, and their daughter’s friend rents the space now. In the future, Matt and Linda want to use the containers for their aging parents. How awesome!

In August, we introduced you to this couple who were building their own 620 sq. ft. DIY shipping container tiny home. On September 1st, they officially moved in and I’m happy to report to you that they couldn’t be happier!

I wake up to a gold glow in the house from the Sunrise and relax on the couch at night while watching the sunset over the pond, couldn’t get better. 8 months of craziness was worth it. Now we have a mortgage free home that we built with our own hands. Living the dream! 🙂
