Here’s a gorgeous tiny house built on a Tumbleweed Trailer. It’s been home to Aja and Dan, and their cat, for the past four years. However, they’ve been given an opportunity to buy some land and are now planning on upsizing — so the home is for sale!

It features gorgeous skylights, a loft bedroom, galley kitchen with bright red refrigerator and a bathroom with a Nature’s Head composting toilet.

They’re asking $50,000, and it’s for sale in Margarettville, NY on Facebook Marketplace. You can scroll through their Instagram to see how they’ve been living in the THOW up until now.

“One of the best things in life is to find out that you are perfectly happy without the things you thought you needed the most!”

Susan says that’s her favorite saying, and it couldn’t be more relevant to tiny house living! As a retiree (“who isn’t getting any younger”), Susan chose to go tiny even though she still owns her 800 square foot home (which she lived in for 50 years!) outright. Owning that land allows her to classify her tiny as an RV, and keeps her from paying a mortgage or lot rent. She uses a room in the “big” house for her sewing and her treadmill, and for guests when family comes to town. Otherwise, she enjoys the minimalism of her 180 square foot abode with her adorable dog, Moxie.

She was kind enough to reach out to us and answer some questions about her tiny life — be sure to read the Q&A after touring her lovely home!

I know open floor plans are all the rage right now, but this couple’s Tumbleweed THOW features a really cozy layout that allows for separate spaces, which I actually really like.

You walk into the kitchen, and there are storage stairs up to the loft bedroom. But then a bathroom and hallway separate that half of the house from the cozy living room and storage loft. This allows for a big comfy couch, and sometimes it’s nice to just shut a door and not see a mess, or maybe get away from your significant other (ha!).

The couple live in Durango, Colorado and are both musicians following their dreams (follow them @bailey.b.sings). Allison over at Tiny Home Tours did a great video tour and interview with them, so be sure to watch the video.

This is the Tootling Tranquility Tiny House, a Tumbleweed Elm that Katrina moved into five years after a major life interruption: Being diagnosed with MS in 2011:

Now years later, divorced, my house sold, major debts paid off, I started working with Tumbleweed Tiny House Company, on the way I was going to redesign life further and help others. September 2016, I enrolled The Institute of Integrated Nutrition which is an online certification program to become a health coach. I want to use all my experiences in life, that have been life changers for me, to help others.

My new journey is to be a roaming health coach. I will be providing support, how to foodie videos, recipes, online programs via Skype, and travel blogs to hopefully inspire and provide strength, encouragement to others to take back their power and step outside their own comfort zone to obtain AMAZING for themselves.

What a great way to use a tiny home! Take a look at her house below! To explore more amazing tiny homes like this, join our Tiny House Newsletter. It’s free and you’ll be glad you did! We even give you free downloadable tiny house plans just for joining!

Bette Presley, of Arroyo Grande, was already living relatively small before she decided to go tiny.

She downsized from her Grandmothers’ Club mobile home park into her own Tumbleweed Tiny House of just 166 square feet.

Part of the goal, she says, is to save her five adult children from having to go through all of her belongings when she passes.

Even better, she hopes she can completely avoid having to go into a nursing home and instead, just stay in her beautiful Tumbleweed cabin.
