I enjoy following the social media accounts of people (and families!) who are making it work living tiny. People always ask "could I really make small square footage work for me ? " Well, here are some families who have embraced the tiny home lifestyle.
The Tiny Canal Cottage - " The Tiny Canal Cottage® is a 1924 Craftsman-style home located by the Venice Beach Canals in Southern California. The house's interior measures under 400 sqft, and includes space-maximizing features such as built-in furnishings, pocket doors, and vaulted ceilings. The Cottage is home to Creative Director Whitney Leigh Morris, her husband Adam, their son West, and two rescue beagles, Stanlee & Sophee."
Arrows and Bow - " In April 2017 my husband and I and our 3 kids decided to sell our 5 bedroom home, buy 2.2 acres of land, and build a house. And of course we did the only rational thing and moved into a trailer on our land. I designed and my husband I renovated the trailer. We have grown to love the trailer life and all that it has taught us. It also spurred a business, renovating trailers and airstreams for others. This is our journey of renovating, living tiny, and encouraging those around us to find joy in the in-between."
True North Family - "Thanks for stopping by! We're Stephanie, Randy, Greysen (3), and Emmersyn (2) - A family of four adventure seeking, nature inspired, tiny home living Canadians who traded in our 1,200 sq. ft. home for a 200 sq. ft. RV with the purpose of filling this one precious life together with memory making experiences! With our home-base in British Columbia, we are currently living and experiencing Ontario until we hit the road for our cross-Canada tour spanning over two months, where we will be visiting each province and territory in this stunning country of ours! Our hope for this space is to inspire fellow families who desire to spend more time together, find adventure in their own backyard, consume & support Canadian brands, and perhaps live a little more sustainable!"
