After owning a conventional home and feeling stressed by the pressure of paying a large mortgage on her own by mortgage arrangers, Natalie, a Canadian woman in her mid-thirties, decided to build a tiny house on wheels.
Starting with plans from Tumbleweed, she adapted the design for extreme winter weather by installing spray foam insulation, a heat recovery ventilation system, electric in-floor heating and a propane heater. Natalie built the house with the help of a contractor and the whole project, including labor, cost approximately $36,000 CAD (although the roof still needs to be shingled).
The tiny house is currently parked in a suburb of Montreal, Canada where she has been living in it for a year and a half. She plans to live in this house forever and, with a little bit of work (i.e. taking down a portion of the backyard fencing), she can take her home wherever she goes.
This is Haley Kalb’s Buddhaful Tiny Home on Wheels. She used to be a banker but has now transitioned into a new career where she teaches yoga and is also an Ayurvedic practitioner.
With her new career change came an entirely new lifestyle with her custom-designed and built tiny house on a trailer that she parks in a growing tiny house RV community in Orlando, Florida. Please enjoy and re-share below. Thanks!
That’s why I want you to see why these five people decided to leave their tiny houses and go back to a more mainstream type of home. Beware. Tiny living isn’t right for all. The good news? As the years go by, tiny living options are increasing and the lifestyle will be less challenging and more obtainable to most. Is a tiny house right for you in your life right now? Are you prepared to go tiny? Read the full article and let us know in the comments below. Either way please enjoy and re-share below. Thanks!
I’ve talked about April Anson and her tiny house before. She’s a Ph.D. graduate who decided to go tiny for economic reasons since there were no jobs in her field. Living in a tiny house has made things better for her.
With the cost savings from her decision to be living tiny she’s able to travel to more conferences she enjoys, she can buy and read more books, and she just gets to have more personal freedom.
Otherwise, April says, she’d be having to spend up to 75% of her income on rent. And that’s no way to get ahead.
