Widow Downsizes to Tiny Life in Incredible Tiny House Village

Melody lost her husband of 40 years suddenly and had to figure out her own path after so many years together. Downsizing made sense, and a tiny house from Incredible Tiny Homes — in their community — seemed like the perfect fit for this new chapter.

She purchased the house for $63,000, and spends about $355/month for rent and utilities. She did an exemplary job decorating the interior and making it into a quaint cottage space. You’ll love the tour below!

    I wish photographers would not distort the pictures with their bowing lenses. I can never get an actual idea how cute the house is because the photographer is trying so hard to make it seem bigger or to see how much can be included in the picture. I was disappointed not to get able to really see this adorable cottage. Yes, I got up the wrong side of the bed this morning 😑

    The space where the TV is what is the size? Is it 3 feet wide? Also in the bathroom I would not have the washer or the drawers. I would have a sink.mirror and light.
