Their Family Tiny House (2021 MiniMotives Tour)

This is a 2021 update of the MiniMotives family tiny house. You may remember Macy Miller, who originally built the tiny house over a decade ago for less than $12,000. Over the years, the tiny house has evolved as well as moved. See below to learn more!

An updated tour of our tiny home which was built for $11,416 ten years ago. We have called this home for nearly a decade, it once sat downtown in an urban core, now it has gained legal status and moved off grid to property we purchased with the money saved while living tiny.

    Oh my! It’s so good to see this family again! I remember them building this tiny house before the baby, then the updates after the baby came. I was impressed then, and it’s even more impressive now. They are one of the pioneering families in the tiny house movement. Great to see you guys again! Wonderful home!
