Deb is a paragliding enthusiast who decided to get off the rat race and look for an affordable housing solution.

At first she thought about a motorhome, but knew it wouldn’t have enough space.

During the pandemic, she used her $40,000 in savings and realized her dreams of owning a small home on her own.

Her 24′ x 8.5′ home, built from the ground up, was a DIY project with the help of her brothers.

When it was finished, she struggled to find a place for it, as Deb explained to YouTube channel Tiny House Giant Journey.

“Every place I could find, none of the RV parks, none of the campgrounds, none of them would do a tiny walk [home],” She said.

Then she came across Tiny House Block – a small hometown in California.

Now she pays just $875 a month in land rent to live in a mountain community with like-minded residents.


Although Deb’s house is only 2,200 square feet, the high ceilings and open layout make it feel much more spacious.

It features a spacious kitchen, a cozy living area with a two-seater sofa and a raised queen-size bed with storage space underneath.

Your bathroom has space for a 32-inch shower and a regular flush toilet.

And there’s a relaxing sitting area outside where she can relax with her cat and watch the sunset over the mountains.


For Deb, the best thing about the tiny home lifestyle is the freedom it offers.

“I can go anywhere I want as long as there is RV hookup,” she said.

“This is my dream.”

Deb isn’t the only one finding happiness in a smaller home.
