  • 4 min read

Michelle built a tiny house in Columbus, Ohio after she had lived on a boat in New York City. Living in her tiny home allows her to spend more quality time with her family and friends, as well as her passion for rescuing and caring after animals. She lives in a tiny house in Beloit, Ohio with her Boxer and 6 rescue cats. She is able to care for these animals and work at a non-profit shelter by living in a tiny house with lower costs. Michelle discovered tiny houses via TV shows, where she saw people living in tiny houses that were built by professionals. Michelle did things differently. She was capable of tearing down a 16-foot cabin to its bare frame, and then rebuilding the entire home you see today.

She is 95% done with the home. All that remains is a little bit of painting and molding to do in the loft. She had a composting toilet, but she plans to install a flush toilet in the future. It took her approximately one and a quarter years to complete the entire project. She was able get the help of her husband in his driveway, which led her to the shell. The inside was completed by her, with the deck, siding and windows she had built herself. It was only the shell for the first few months, and she was able build her perfect living space exactly how she wanted.

She started with an L-shaped window seat to seat four and a china cabinet for her mom’s antique china. Mary now lives full-time on a 300-acre farm, which the owner has divided into smaller lots. She has electric, water, and sewer out there. She even managed to grow her garden on an acre. She plans to also have a chicken coop, and goats. She plans to open her own animal rescue and build the building herself. Craigslist allowed her to find the perfect land for her tiny house. Even though it was the most difficult part of building a tiny house, she is very happy with the outcome. Now she can relax more, work less, and spend more quality time with her family and pets. She created a tiny house that combines Victorian and modern styles. It is painted in a fresh white color with black accents on the shutters. The cute little deck at the front looks great and has enough space to hold a table and chairs or some rocking chairs.

The home’s interior is adorable and fresh. It has a country style with florals, gingham and florals. She clearly included lots of storage in her home, which is great for all the antiques she has. It’s almost like a dollhouse. Even the staircase to the loft is made out of a cabinet with shelves to hold books and other items. The staircase is well-built and easy to climb to loft. The kitchen is equipped with everything she needs to prepare delicious meals. The bathroom is located in the back. She also has an electric fireplace that she decorated with antiques and flowers. This tiny house is inspiring and shows that anyone can create the tiny home of their dreams.
