Linnéa’s Tiny House

I decided to go tiny while pursuing my degree in oriental medicine because I value simple living, love cozy spaces, the outdoors, and wanted to minimize my student loans. My cousin built her own tiny house and I was very inspired by her! I thought about building my own but after a year of emails from Tiny House Listings I discovered a tiny house with my name on it (built by someone else).

I feel grateful for living tiny. I’ve been living with my boyfriend in the house for almost a year (minus weekends) and it has been great. I’ve learned that I can “have my own space” without being in my own space, that clutter really does take up room quickly, and that in a sense all you own really does own you too!

    Tiny houses are cute. But we home can, raise our own meat and summer vegetables, maintain our home (1500 sq foot log home) ourselves, and have grandchildren here a lot. Where do you put the sewing machine? The canning jars? The tools? The winter comforters in summer? The potty chair for visiting grandchildren? The grandchildren? Lovely romantic ideal, but I can’t afford to hire someone to do everything for me because I have no tools of my own and no place to keep them.

      When i build mine I’ll let you know :). We dont use a potty chair we use a separate toilet seat the fits inside the regular toilet seat. The one I have has handles which gives the kid(s) a better sense of safety but the handles can also be used to hang it up on a hook on the wall. I have a couple of ideas for a trundle bed and a murphy bed for grandkid(s).If I put in a loft there will be room for adults up there. I hope to be sleeping downstairs. I have a couple of ideas for putting in a built in tool shed a few tools as well. Dont hold your breath though, i’m good on ideas but tend to fall down with the follow through 🙂

    I love your tiny house! It is so cozy! I am looking to build my own, if not find one to add on to and I love lay out of yours! And the windows! Also, as a response ego Dianne. You can definitely make room for canning on a smaller scale in a tiny house! And if someone sews, that can also be made space for (I have seen it!). However, you are correct, a tiny house is not made for large groups of people. The designs are diverse and, depending on the size, a number of people can comfortably “hang out” in one space. One of the main purposes of a tiny house on wheels is so that people can transport it easily and travels with it so that they are not held in on lace for a long time. I myself intend to build a tiny house on wheels, and when I am ready to settle, to build a slightly larger structure on a piece of land. The great thing is that I can still have my tiny house to travel with, too!

    I am looking for a place for during the week for just myself. I love your place!! Are you willing to sell it?

    I saw your post on, I absolutely love this house! I am just curious, have you considered adding solar panels to the roof for electricity?

    I am possibly interested in renting it form you, but I work (and need to live) in East Longmeadow, Mass. Would that be too far away? Email me if you think something could work out,
