She Sleeps in a Piano!?! Tour her Victorian TINY HOUSE


Shorty Robbins built a civil war themed Tiny House to use during reenactments and loved it so much, she sold her big house and moved in! This tiny house has lots of clever, concealed features as well as Victorian period charm and antiques. Rave reviews on YouTube.

I love working with antiques. I’ve restored quite a few pieces. Consider paying a company to strip the finish so the dirty, hard work is done and then it’s joyful work. Finding affordable antiques is easier in rural areas. Often the value can be significantly increased with a few simple improvements. There’s a good video here on our blog that shows how to make a living doing simple repairs to antiques.

Off The Grid Cabin In New Zealand Paradise


Hidden amongst the spectacular mountain ranges of the Kahurangi National park of New Zealand, this beautiful off-the-grid cabin sits in paradise.

Affectionally titled the Honeywell Hut, after it’s builder Jack Honeywell. The off the grid cabin, although relatively new, looks as though it could have sat on the land for a hundred years.

Watch The SHED Tiny House Being Built Before Your Eyes


Robert and Samantha decided they want to build a tiny house. So…they got to work. And fortunately for us, they had their camera ready to go throughout the process. Sit back and enjoy while we watch this young married couple whose “combined construction experience is relatively minuscule” take their tiny house ambitions into their own hands. Thanks Robert and Samantha!

YouTube
Wow, over 3.3 million views. Obviously there’s growing demand for tiny houses. Their use of plywood interior paneling and recycled metal siding simplified construction and cut costs. It would be great to see timelapse videos of houses built with more sustainable materials.

Debt Free Family of 5 – build 1000 sq ft Home NO Mortgage


Meet the Latigo family – Rachel, Jared and their three kids. They sold more than half the stuff they owned, as well as their house, and converted a metal building into a much smaller home on Rachel’s parents land. Building the house themselves made it possible to design it specifically to their needs.

In this interview, Jared and Rachel talk about getting debt free and show us around their house, where a lot of their rooms have custom build items. They also share about how much happier and stress free they have become since downsizing their life. Getting out of debt made it possible for Rachel to quit her job and become a stay at home mom, and she’s able to homeschool the kids and they are all able to spend much more time together as a family.
