I am divorcing my husband but I have moved my whole house so I can live around the corner from my ex

A mom going through a divorce has shared how she moved her entire home just 10 minutes away from her ex-husband.

Shannen, who is a mother of two boys, was keen for her children to maintain a sense of normalcy during the breakup.

Instead of moving to a new home, the mom decided to build a house where she could get closer to her ex.

With the help of her ex-husband, Shannen built a tiny house on wheels for just £35,000 and found a piece of land in the Pacific Northwest just a stone’s throw from her sons’ permanent home.

Speaking to YouTube channel Tiny House Expedition, she explained: “I live here part-time with two boys and full-time with a 70lb English bulldog.

“I’m going through a transition in my life right now, going through a divorce after spending 19 years with my partner

“This house pretty much saved me, it allowed me to get out of a relationship with someone I couldn’t be with any longer and still have my house and let the boys come to a place they know and without that they must be so far away.

“I moved the house just ten minutes down the road from where they are used to.”

The house includes a small dining table, a large sofa and a full size bathtub, as well as two mezzanine bedrooms for her and her sons.

Outside, Shannen has built a pallet deck and fence and is cultivating the area into a lush garden.

The mother pays around £300 a month rent including utilities, leaving her and the boys free to build on the surrounding land.
