Mégane and Cédric purchased their tiny home about two years ago and have it situated on one of the most idyllic pieces of property in France! Whether the land is snow-covered or dappled with wildflowers, it looks absolutely magical. They are growing fruit trees and bushes and have a lovely garden and chickens as well.

Inside, they have a professionally-outfitted kitchen, loft bedroom, and a living room with a huge picture window that looks out on their property. They have wood heating and solar power, and a beautiful covered front porch. Read their story below and enjoy the photos!

As a fellow homesteader/self-sufficient wannabe, Kris’ tour of his smallholding that he created from basically nothing for very little money is absolutely astounding. He’s planted 2,500 trees, built a solar array and hydroelectric plant, crafted his own cordwood home as well as a huge workshop, greenhouse, and multiple outbuildings all using — primarily — materials from his land, hand tools, and reclaimed items!

His cordwood home which he started with cost him about $3,000 and took about a year to build since he was traveling to and from London to create it. Once he had a place to live, he took on all the other projects and has accomplished more in five years than many of us will in a lifetime! Incredible. Enjoy every minute of the video tour below.

This family of 6 is such an inspiration! They left their 3,000 square foot home, bought 20 acres of land in Northern Idaho, lived in an RV inside a pole barn for 8 months, and built their DIY tiny house in the barn for under $20,000! Now they have just started building their dream home — doing all of it debt-free.

Their journey shows how hard work and good financial planning can make a world of difference. The home has a large main room with an L-shaped kitchen and living space, as well as a smaller master bedroom, and a larger kids’ room with mountain views. You can take a full tour of their space below, and then watch the following video for a breakdown of costs (including the cost for the land and pole barn).

In total, their tiny house is about 600 square feet, or 100 square feet per person. How many square feet per person do you think is ideal?

When Tina and her partner went in different directions, it left her with a tough decision to make: Leave their barn home and sell her animals, or find someway to live on pasture with her herd of sheep and goats (and her cats and dogs)?

Tiny living was the perfect solution! With the help of her dad, she built a tiny home from the trailer-up for about 20,000 EUR (~$24,500) and gets her water/electricity from a nearby barn while living in the meadow with her flock. She (@tiny.tohuwabohu on Instagram) has everything she needs and didn’t have to sacrifice her animals to get it.

Inside her home she has a full kitchen, bathroom with composting toilet, and a loft bedroom. She even has a front porch from which she can see her animals and the lovely countryside. We got to interview her, so be sure to read the Q&A at the end of the post!
