Young Family’s Self Built Tiny House on Wheels


Ashley and Chad decided to build their own tiny home on wheels after not being able to go the traditional route of buying a house with a mortgage.

They’ve lived in their DIY tiny house for 3.5 years now and say this lifestyle has improved their quality of life in many ways.

After the initial investment to build the home, the couple says their expenses are quite low, about half of what they paid to rent a studio apartment, and this affordable cost of living allows Ashley to be a stay at home mom with their two children, and makes it possible for Chad to work close to home doing a job he loves.


In this video, Ashley and Chad share their decision making process, how they built the tiny house, the cost to build it, their systems, and some insights into what it’s like to live in a tiny home as a couple and as a family with young children (pros and cons). We really appreciate them sharing their story and hope you’ll give them a follow!
