“Derek “Deek” Diedricksen, HGTV/DIY Network host/designer, and host of “Tiny Yellow House”, heads out to Royalston, MA to hang with Chris Haynes. Chris’ house, a mere 252 square feet, is fully permitted, inspected, and legal- not to mention solar! Based off of the “Bodega” plans from the Tumbleweed Tiny House Company, Chris made a few alterations to suit his needs, and tastes, and so as to conform to a few codes in Massachusetts.”
“A tour of our tiny house. Built on Tumbleweed principles, we bought this 272sq ft house already built, then hauled it across the state and parked it in a garden. We bought it fully functional but very bare bones. We did major remodels to suit our personalities and needs. We have enjoyed living in our home for the last year and a half but the recent fourth edition to our family is making it feel more cramped. We will be moving soon. Hope you enjoy!”
Like many readers here, you might be dreaming of your sustainable natural home. But maybe you’re busy saving money at a job in town and not ready for the plunge. Temporarily living in a simple garage apartment/garage studio is one way to live simply so it’s easier to save for your dream home.
