Couple Tired of Living with a Mortgage Build a Tiny 221-Square-Foot House

Andrew and Gabriella Morrison were tired of living with a mortgage, tons of bills, and debt hanging over their heads. So, the couple decided to stop the nonsense and start living a more satisfying life by simplifying. Their most notable transition was the construction of their house, called hOMe, which is a 221-square-foot tiny house on wheels (with an additional 128-square-feet of loft space).

The 28-foot-long, 8.5-foot-wide house includes all of the basics like a full-sized kitchen and appliances, a master bedroom, a functioning bathroom, a staircase leading up to the lofts, a home office, and a large amount of space for storage. The movement towards simplification offers “tiny house living without compromise,” and anyone can purchase the architectural plans from the Tiny House Build website to have their own special home constructed.

Not only did the couple minimize their living quarters, but they also eliminated 80% of their belongings in order to really minimize their lifestyle. Gabriella describes the new way of life as, “Simple, uncluttered, environmentally sane, affordable. Conscious living.”

You can watch a full tour of the home in the video below.
