Could you live in just 320 sq. ft. of space? How about with 3 other people? The Tiny House Family does it, and the DIY, money-saving way they went about it is attracting them a lot of attention.

Hari, Karl and their son and daughter’s small living adventure began when the sour economy caused their award-winning restaurant in Florida to close. Knowing they needed to save money, but still wanting to live mortgage-free, they bought a parcel of land in the Blue Ridge Mountains and built a salvaged (mostly from Craigslist) new home for just $12,000.

Now this smart family of four enjoys their abode without owing any money on it whatsoever, allowing them to live completely off of Karl’s salary and save all of Hari’s salary for their future dreams. Read on to see Hari’s insightful small-space living tips and see photos of the Tiny House’s wonderful living spaces, which include a loft sleeping space, a lovely porch and a sunny kitchen.
