Andrew and Gabriella Morrison spent years paying a hefty mortgage. They started to grow resentful that all of their time was going toward making money to pay for the mortgage. They sold the house and downsized so they could focus more on what was truly important in their lives, rather than just the bills.
Since both of them had construction backgrounds, it only seemed fitting that they would build their own home. They called their tiny house "hOMe" and set up a website to encourage others to do the same.
1. The total cost of building the home was $22,000, with an additional $10,000 for appliances.
2. That number is especially impressive since they now live free from a mortgage.
3. They said the hOMe has actually brought them closer.
4. Not only did they erase their debt, but the small size keeps their utility bills low.
5. It's super stylish inside and out.
6. The house's decoration is a delightful blend of contemporary and cozy.
7. Both levels have plenty of seating and enough room for guests. The upstairs loft functions as an extra sleeping loft or entertainment nook.
8. There's a full kitchen.
9. The bedroom looks downright spacious.
10. Outhouse? Hardly. There's a functioning toilet in the bathroom like any home.
11. There is a standup shower as well.
12. Their 14-year-old daughter has her very own cabin. She does spend a lot of time in the main cabin with her parents, though.
This family is so excited about their new life of freedom that they offer a free e-course on their website for anyone curious about building their own tiny home. I don't know about you, but after seeing this, I'm sure tempted.
