This is Michelle “MJ” Boyle. She’s a mother of two who recently built her own tiny home on wheels to retire in (sort of). Michelle plans on building more tiny homes so that she can rent them out for income.

Her THOW has what she calls a “modern nostalgia” style. In fact, Michelle spent two years collecting and refurbishing appliances from the mid 1940’s and early 1950’s for her kitchen. How awesome is that?

Anyway, I’m able to put together this post and share it with you thanks to the incredible Dylan Magaster on YouTube so be sure to subscribe to his videos (they’re amazing)!

Meet Alysha, her kids, and their tiny house in Red Bluff, California. It was built with the help of the Oregon Cottage Company.

She decided to move she and her kids into a tiny home after her husband passed away tragically and unexpectedly in his early 30s after serving in the United States Air Force.

Alysha knew she had to do the best with what she had. So she decided to pick up a lifestyle that would allow her to spend the most time raising her two young children, especially since she would do it alone.

Her tiny house was built by architect Todd Miller in Eugene, Oregon. She now rents out her former ‘big house’ for immediate income and lives in the backyard.
