This has been Terry Scott’s 8×35 tiny house.
Hi! So what’s your name?
Where are you from?
How did you first become seriously interested in tiny homes?
Just by reading and learning about them over the last few years.
What type of tiny house do you have or are you working on?
8×35 thow built by another individual. Half living space half storage.
Why did you go tiny? What are you hoping to get out of it for yourself?
Turned in maintenance for stealing power where I was living. Was eventually forced to move from there. It’s extremely hard to rent when you own pets so that’s when I went tiny.
How did you figure out where to put it? Do you keep it in one place or do you move around?
Moved it to Lexington NC and set up in an old grandfathered in mobilehome park. Then found out that the county hates those and has not allowed me to hook to the electrical grid. First reason was because of not having a company name/hud sticker on it. Then even knowing I’m on a rented lot was told that if I put it on a permanent foundation I could have power.
What’s been the most challenging part about your tiny house so far?
What benefits are you experiencing from it so far?
Cheaper cost of living.
What helpful piece of advice would you give to others who are interested in going tiny? What mistakes could you help them avoid?
In my situation I was in somewhat of a pinch. Try to plan well ahead. Also try to find someone a little more honest about why their selling it in the first place. Finally admitted to selling it for the same problems I’ve been facing. He built it in Fl. Then moved to SC.
Everything has been alright about living here with a generator even after the park has been sold. That is right up until I notified them of a leak on their water line. Now since I’m not hooked to the electrical grid I’ve been nicely asked to find somewhere else to move it to because fixing the line will be money out of their pocket and that they didn’t really want a generator in the park. This after first being told that as long as I paid my lot rent and was happy living like I am I could stay.
