Melanie is a National Spokesperson for the Tiny House Alliance USA, and the author of “Trailblazing Tiny: A Guide to Breaking Free.” She and her husband live — legally — in a tiny house on wheels that sits on an acre homestead.
They built their 144 sq. ft. tiny house in just seven days with the help of three other people at an Incredible Tiny House workshop back in 2018. Now they are enjoying a peaceful life outside the rat race — raising chickens, growing veggies, and spending less than $300/month on a land mortgage and utilities! We got to interview Melanie about her tiny life below, so be sure to read that after the photo tour.
Digital Project Manager, Stace, lives in a gorgeous 24×10 tiny house in a (undisclosed) tiny house village in Canada. She had her home professionally built by a company she doesn’t recommend to others, and finished a lot of the interior herself once the home was delivered.
Her home includes high ceilings in her kitchen and bathroom, and a cozy living room space that doubles as her office (and triples as a guest room). She had a ladder to her loft bedroom, which is snug, but comfortable. Enjoy her tour below and be sure to follow her on Instagram.
When Jess and her husband were dating, they immediately agreed that someday they wanted to live on a narrowboat. After saving up for more than 2 years, and spending 3 months on renovations, that dream has come true! They have been living on the water in Whiltshire for about a year and will soon move to Oxford and live on the Thames.
What’s your favorite part of their renovation? Could you live on a narrowboat?
Do you love travel AND being at home? Alex and Megan had experience with international travel and outdoor exploration, but also love being home — so they decided to bring their home with them as they explore the world.
Megan had already built out a van when she met Alex, and since he converts vans as a side gig, the interior got an overhaul. At a “normal” van height, they had to get creative to make a functional space that they can’t stand up in — and the results are gorgeous! Read our Q&A with them after the photo tour below.
Nicole and her family lost their 2,000 sq. ft. home in California in a fire. When they found out they were $500K underinsured, they decided to pivot and purchase three tiny homes instead of rebuilding. They get to stay on their land and have adjusted well to tiny living.
Her two older sons use the 250 sq. ft. homes when they are around, and otherwise, the homes are used as a big living room and an office. Enjoy the photo tour and make sure to read our Q&A with Nicole!
Tiny house living isn’t always forever, but it’s often a wonderful chapter for individuals, couples, and families looking to save money. That was the case with the Krebs, who transformed an old shed into a gorgeous farmhouse tiny home and lived in it for a year and a half while renovating their forever home. We interviewed them right at the beginning of their tiny life, and now we are back with an update!
The family has plans to put their shed-to-tiny home on Airbnb (a great source of passive income) and live in their “big house” with their two girls. Enjoy the photos and interview with Katy below, and then stick around for the video tour from February 2022.
DrAntonika was no stranger to tiny living when the opportunity to buy this home with her parents presented itself. Working as a healer/naturopath on yachts meant that she was often living out of a couple of suitcases in a small room. But when she and her traveling parents needed a place to ride out lockdowns, a tiny home in this Texas community seemed like a great option.
She and her parents split time between work and being home in this beautiful 399 sq. ft. tiny house that has a huge kitchen, removable deck, and downstairs bedroom. She can grow herbs out on her porch and has space for her air fryer and smoothie maker. What do you think of this tiny house and community?
Nikki, a special education teacher in Austin, lives with her three dogs in a gorgeous 43-foot gooseneck tiny house built by Nomad Tiny Homes. She designed the layout, which includes a loft bedroom and gooseneck bedroom, galley kitchen, and an office space.
Throughout her video tour, Nikki is honest about what works and what doesn’t in her tiny house! Some things she thought she’d love (her microwave/oven combo) she really doesn’t, and there are challenges like the lack of counterspace in the bathroom. And that office? She discovered she uses it primarily for crafting or other things, but not as much for work.
