Gael lived and worked in San Francisco for years, but the high cost of living made it impossible for her to retire there. So instead, she purchased a tiny home and secured a spot at Tiny Tranquility in Oregon.

Her beautiful home is filled with her artwork – pencil drawings and intricate scratch designs – and she has a comfortable recliner to sleep in (it’s the best option for her back). The only regret she has with her tiny home is the tiny bathroom!

Despite having a successful career, Brenda found herself homeless some years ago while trying to take care of her aging mother. A tiny house was a perfect solution to her predicament — until it wasn’t. Not long after buying her first THOW, it crashed on its way to Oregon and was largely demolished.

But Brenda got back up! She salvaged what she could, and ended up with a larger tiny home that makes sense for her “not minimalist” lifestyle. Now she’s been living at the Tiny Tranquility tiny house community for three years, and she loves her life and little home.

After a divorce, Bradley was looking for “Plan B” — how could he comfortably sustain himself for the next 20 years? He started looking for a Toyota Sun Raider and found a 1982 fiberglass shell that needed a total overhaul.

Wanting to off-road, he needed to upgrade the tires, engine, and shocks to make it happen! He added special bars to hold up his hammock in the front of the truck, and in the back, he added additional exterior storage. What do you think of his set-up?

Remember the Halloween house from last week? Here’s a full tour!

Shelley lives in a gorgeous 36 x 8 ft. tiny house on Whidbey island off the coast of Washington. She purchased land there after her divorce, and her professionally-built tiny home is a temporary housing situation while she gets approval and financing for a larger pre-fab home.

Her home has a first-floor bedroom with room to walk all the way around the bed, a loft guest room and a long galley kitchen that allows her to cook whatever she likes. Enjoy!

Denise is a knitwear designer and sewing patternmaker running a successful business from her 280 square-foot tiny cottage in California. She intentionally chose to rent a tiny space, so she can afford to live in an area where homes cost $2 million!

Her meticulously-organized space features a separate bathroom and micro kitchen, and she’s arranged the studio space to fit her living, sleeping, and workspaces. Enjoy the video tour of her space below!

Annie wanted to reduce her footprint and find “sonic freedom” by getting a house where she didn’t share walls with others. As a soul-folk musician, she built her tiny home around her instruments and music supplies.

She has a lovely little backyard lot in Portland, Oregon, complete with a little garden plot and patio space. What do you think of her professionally-built tiny home?

Rich had the American Dream with a big house and grown kids — but when divorce hit, he needed to pivot after the grief. That’s when he decided to leave his job in corporate photography and gift family portraits to single moms in shelters or who have left domestic abuse situations.

Living in his renovated Canadian military vehicle allows him to keep his expenses low, so he can keep giving generously! What a remarkable life. Check out the interview below.

Luz started her tiny living journey by building out the back of her Subaru Forester. After about 8 months on the road, she upgraded to her awesome A-Liner camper, which she lives in full-time (without running water!). She has some solar-powered battery banks to charge her devices and uses solar lights indoors.

During her life on the road, she co-founded Latinx Hikers, a community for Latinx travelers, nomads, and outdoor enthusiasts. She doesn’t sugar-coat how scary it was at the beginning to travel alone as a woman of color, but some two years into the adventure, she has finally found her stride. Enjoy her interview below!
