Vandila was ready to make the “next step” and get out of apartment living, but the housing market in Austin was crazy and she hated the thought of jumping into so much debt and not getting a great deal. Plus, she didn’t think she needed all the space a full home would offer.
That’s when she considered a skoolie, but her job kept her tied to one location. Eventually, she settled on a park model in a tiny house community in Austin. She has a ground-floor bedroom, roomy shower, and awesome built-in entertainment system for her TV & games. Check it out!

Leaving Apartment Life for a Tiny House Community
Meet Torey and her dog Dandelion! They’re living in their very own tiny home in Austin, Texas for $950 per month.
Torey was tired of paying rent and not owning anything, but couldn’t afford the $400K homes for sale in Austin. So instead she put $5,000 down on an ESCAPE ONE tiny home built by ESCAPE that cost her $60,000 ($400/month loan). For an additional $550 a month she rents a beautiful lot in a mobile home park with a detached shed, water, and plenty of space for Dandy to run and roam.
The average rent price for Austin is more than $1,700 per month according to Zillow, so Torey is saving, living in the city she loves and getting a beautiful custom space to call her own. Check out the video tour below from Jenna of Tiny House Giant Journey!
