This is the story of Molly and Ken’s and their 267-sq.-ft. Born And Bound Tiny House they live in with their two fur babies, Mel and Tucker. Believe it or not, they were even able to squeeze a sauna into their bathroom! Their tiny house has everything you need, including an apartment-style stackable washer and dryer and a railed staircase that leads to their cozy sleeping loft.

They live in their tiny house out of Austin, Texas, but since it’s built on wheels, they could move anywhere pretty easily. That’s what can be so great about tiny homes, they can make you very flexible and mobile. Molly and Ken chose the tiny life for the freedom it offers (low cost, low maintenance lifestyle). Why do you want to go tiny? Please take the tour of their beautiful tiny house and life below and let us know your thoughts in the comments. Enjoy! You can follow them @bornandbound on Instagram.

Carole Lyne Robin is an impressive and inspiring woman and we love that she has designed her life around what is most important to her.

She’s a freelance photographer who helped build her own tiny house so that she could afford to live where she wants (off-grid in the bush!) and spend more time with the people and projects she loves.

“A mother lives in a 270-square-foot tiny house with her 2 children and 2 dogs. Here’s what it’s like inside,” is the title of the story over at Insider by Frank Olito who did the story on Amanda Burger and her tiny house life in Florida.

According to the story, before going tiny, she lived in a 2800-square-foot home. After separating from her spouse, she decided to downsize into a tiny house. What do you think?

This is a guest article by Shaylynn Bates – “How she got her tiny house and ways you can too”

With all the articles out there about downsizing and living small, I’m sure the title of this article is very misleading. I’m not writing yet another article warning about the difficulties of living in a small space and how it’s overrated, and not all it’s cracked up to be; I have lived in a 10 ft. X 10 ft. space, 600 sq. ft. with another person, and the sleeper cab of an 18 wheeler (I am a proponent of living small). One needs to have a small space in order to live in a small space. After getting my tiny house I received several requests asking for information on how I successfully got into tiny house owning. All the information out there is either (at the time of this writing) 6 years old or very vague and general. A brief overview of tiny houses will be necessary as the rest of this article will discuss financing your little dream and where to put it. “Disclaimer this information is one person’s experience in the state of Oregon, your state and your experience may be different”

First – here’s Shaylynn’s beautiful tiny home…😊
