    Living in small spaces

    Life in 120 Square Feet


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Wheezinggirl and her partner originally lived in a 2700 square foot home in Atlanta. Over time, the two realized that most of the space in their home went unused, and maintenance became burdensome. 'We learned about Tumbleweed Tiny House company and thought it would be perfect for us. We already had land near Asheville so we got to building.'

    It took about three years for the couple to complete the tiny home. They did all of the construction themselves during weekends while still residing in Atlanta. They could not be happier with their current living situation. 'I love living in the tiny space. We get along well, which is usually one of the questions we get asked "how can you stand living in such a small space with someone else?" I love living on the mountain because it is just so pretty.'

    My partner and I live in a 120 square foot off-the-grid house in the mountains of North Carolina with our cat. We have solar electricity and get most of our water from a spring on the land. We both work remotely from our mountain house as well. You can read more about our life at www.120squarefeet.com.
