Nikki & Mitchell’s tiny house for sale

If you’ve seen Small is Beautiful you’ll recognise this tiny house.

I followed Nikki & Mitchell’s journey nearly the entire?building process, from the first wall going up to the bathroom walls going in. It’s a beautifully built tiny house, with so much light and a great aesthetic and now it’s available to buy.

One of the toughest aspects in the tiny house journey is building the house yourself. If you don’t want to do that, here’s an opportunity to buy this one.

If you’re interested the contact details are at the bottom of this post.
