    Finally someone with sense. It’s not a home unless it has a bathroom. I really like it. It’s cozy and almost fairy like hidden away in the woods 😍

    Yay! Finally, no high-end Air Bnb glamping but an honest to god place to live! Great little “nest” for a college student. Had to employ common sense, creativity and hard work. Not all about the $$$.

    Not all houses need insulation either they are used during warmer times or are in warmer climates. The toilet is a hoot! This is all we truly need to live. the rest is just telling the world how much money you have. Amazing young woman. I’m sure we’ll be hearing more about her and tiny homes.

    Do you take showers outside? I didn’t see one inside? Do you have a generator or do you use solar?

      Not all the tiny homes we feature have full baths inside. Sometimes they are separate (outhouse, bathhouse), they shower outside (camp shower, custom outdoor shower), or they use another structure on the property with an appropriate indoor bathroom.
