I smiled from ear to ear when I read these words from the messages area of our Tiny House Talk Facebook Page, “I haz a tiny cabin in the woods! I’m on the Olympic Peninsula.”
Yes! I love when I get to hear of people achieving their goals, especially when they finish building a tiny cabin in the woods. So Bogdan was nice enough to let me share some photos of the tiny cabin with us so you can enjoy them below… So, when are you going to start building your tiny cabin in the woods?
If you currently find yourself in a house that exceeds your needs and you want to create extra time or money for yourself then this article is for you. But what would you do with the extra time and cash?
You might be tighter on money than you used to be or you might just want to increase the amount of money that you’re saving for whatever reason. Whatever your goals are, we all know that more time and money directed towards them will help you. Maybe you’re trying to save money for retirement, start your own business, or help your kids out.
So here’s how my friend saved $11,076 one year on housing alone
In 2007 my friend Mike did something crazy. He decided to go from a luxurious two-bedroom condominium to sharing a smaller and less expensive apartment with a roommate.
He went from paying $1,473 per month in house-related payments to $550 per month. That’s a savings of more than $923 a month and a total of $11,076 in one year.
That’s an extreme example but what if you went from $900 per month to about $650? That’s still $250 a month and $3,000 after one year. It’s an idea that can be pretty powerful after a while. I know, moving sucks but it’s worth it sometimes.
So what would you do with the extra money you’d have if you lowered your living expenses by more than $300 per month?
Tiny motorhomes are appealing because you get better gas mileage and they’re easier to drive around in, park, and clean, right? Especially when comparing to larger motorhomes and travel trailers.
Almost everyone that I talk to that likes the idea of tiny houses loves the idea of really small campers. Unfortunately, most of these are not available in the United States. On the bright side, I think it’s very feasible to convert a minivan into something like this with a little creativity and the right tools. The pop-up feature might be the most expensive part of the project, what do you think?
This one is a Piaggio commercial vehicle converted by JC Leisure. It has a pop-up roof, pull-out bed, and a kitchen unit. There’s even a hidden port-a-potty along with some storage for your traveling needs. The great thing about a vehicle like this is that it can easily be used as a daily driver as well as an adventure traveling machine!
