In Dream Big, Live Small, we visit tiny home-dwellers, discovering why they choose to live this way, how they manage it and the possibilities to do things like travel, learn and grow that have resulted from downsizing so significantly. In the long run, living small is really about living big.
Downsizing in order to move into a tiny home often helps homeowners remove material clutter in their lives. But for some, it also affords flexibility and the ability to move easily.
In this episode of Dream Big, Live Small, you’ll get to see inside one couple’s tiny house in Yelm, Washington.
Brian and Alexis say they “have a problem with commitment.” In fact, they haven’t ever stayed in one home for more than two years at a time. So moving in to a house on wheels was a solution that jusy made sense.
On the outside of their 290-square-foot tiny house, you’ll see corrugated aluminum and cedar, which was a design decision to make the home as light as possible for easy moving. Inside the home, you’ll find a large kitchen, which is a third of the home’s size, because Brian and Alexis enjoy cooking. The home is equipped with a composting toilet, creative storage solutions and a washer-dryer combo that the couple calls one of their “little luxuries.”
To get a complete tour of Alexis and Brian’s tiny home, be sure to watch the full episode above. And in case you want to join the tiny house revolution, check out these kits you can buy on Amazon to build your own.
