Hanna and Nathan wanted a debt-free lifestyle, so they chose a gorgeous park model from Recreational Resort Cottages in Texas and put it on an acre and a half of unrestricted land in Texas. The couple and their two young children are living the tiny dream!

The interior of the home has a gorgeous white-and-dark-wood farmhouse vibe, and features a large main living/kitchen space. We got to interview Hannah about what it’s like to live tiny with tiny humans, so be sure to check out that Q&A at the end of the post. There’s also a video tour of their home!

Think that tiny homes aren’t for families? Check out this 232 square foot tiny house on wheels that is home to two adults, two babies and a Great Dane.

From the outside, you’ll notice a beautiful rustic wooden exterior with a sloped roof on a gooseneck trailer. At one end of the trailer, you’ll see corrugated metal siding which envelopes what used to be a patio and is now the bedroom for baby Hazel and her soon-to-be baby brother.

When you go inside, you’ll find a beautiful open-concept house with a small love-seat and chair in the main living room. The color scheme consists of white and bright hues. The king-sized bed sits on the elevated portion of the trailer with underneath storage and closet space. The long kitchen lies against the front wall and includes an oven and four-burner stove, a smaller refrigerator, a microwave and a dishwasher. The butcher block counter tops allow plenty of cooking space. Lastly, the bathroom includes a stunning tile shower with a rainwater shower head.

People often wonder if tiny houses are practical for families. They might work for an individual or a couple, but what happens when a baby comes into the picture?

Macy Miller had her first child while living in the beautiful, modern tiny house on wheels she designed and built herself. She knew the house made sense for the way she used space, and was excited to have a home of her own without taking out a mortgage. She wasn’t actively planning to have children when she designed the home, but she made sure her design could accommodate an additional room, just in case. When I visited her last spring, she was happy with the house as it was, but was also open to making changes in the future based on what her family needed:

Macy: I did consider all the options, even having a kid. My life could have gone any number of directions, so I designed it to be very flexible. I designed the porch so it could be enclosed, so if I wanted more privacy, I could have a separate bedroom, or it could be a little nursery. I thought about doing it, but I love my porch, and I don’t need it: kids want to be around their parents… There may be a point that it makes sense for her to have a separate space, and I enclose that patio and it becomes her room.

In this video interview you’ll get to meet a family of three (husband, wife, and daughter) who have downsized to a 117 sq. ft. tiny home on wheels.

They built it the house from scratch by hand in the mornings while later working nights. It took only 3 months to have it move in ready.

They went from paying $400 a month in utilities with their big house to paying only about $20 a month today in their tiny house. Now the family lives simply with no television.

And for them the decision to go tiny wasn’t just about money. It’s about living a better life for everybody. The house cost about $6-$8k to build thanks to being able to use recycled materials.

They spent an extra $12,000 to put up solar panels to power the house without having to completely rely on the grid. Please enjoy the video tour below.

Since I’ve been getting several questions from readers related to families and tiny houses

I wanted to share my most recent thoughts on the idea of- let’s say- a family of 5 moving into a tiny home.

If you’re here it’s likely that you’re either thinking about moving your family into a tiny home

Or you might know somebody who has that ‘crazy’ idea.

Either way, I’m here to give you what I think are my most honest and helpful thoughts without the b.s.

I’ve been researching tiny living since 2009 and I care about every single one of you so I’d like to save you as much sweat, blood, and tears as possible.

Tiny houses on wheels, in my opinion, are not a great long-term solution for the majority of families with children.

And here’s why…
