“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”

This is Matt and Lisa’s mind-blowing tiny home on wheels. It features a jet black exterior finish which compliments the modern design. Their tiny house also has an abundance of large windows including skylights along the entire roof. You can tell right away that this is a very special and one-of-a-kind tiny home. One of the most unique features about it is the double shower in the bathroom. Yes, this tiny house has two showers in the same bathroom. As it turns out, Matt is a professional bathroom remodeler/builder.
Another unique feature of this tiny house is the extra ceiling height which allows you to stand up before laying down in bed in your loft. I love this! So if you sometimes feel claustrophobic I think it might be different in this loft, what do you think?
