Bianca, Justin, and their son Bodhi live in this 30-foot long tiny house on wheels and they’ve designed the interior to fit their small family’s lifestyle perfectly! Their current parking arrangement is an example of the land stewardship model meaning they are the secondary dwelling on a piece of land and they take care of the gardens, the chickens, and the bees on the property.
The tiny house was a DIY build that was for sale on Kijiji and they bought it for $60,000 CAD. They added the kitchen, the furniture, and they modified the bathroom themselves to make the home comfortable and functional.
Justin is a Montessori Adolescent Teacher and a Land Steward, and Bianca is a small space designer, a downsizing expert, and a sustainable living specialist.
What we love about this tiny house interior is that it has flexible spaces. The main floor bedroom is currently Bodhi’s bedroom as well as the closet space for the whole family, but when he’s older, they could easily swap sleeping spaces and give him the loft. The living room can also be configured as a dining space, a guest bedroom, or a safe sleeping space for a parent and child if someone isn’t feeling well. And finally, the kitchen is intentionally extremely minimalist (for example, no oven or permanent cook space) so that it can be used in many different ways, and they have an induction burner, a BBQ, and there is an oven in the main building on the property that they can use on special occasions.
We hope you enjoyed this full tiny house tour and meeting the lovely and alternative Metz family!!
Thanks for watching!
