Woman Spends 3 Years Living in a Modern, Off Grid Tiny House

Dawn built her modern off-grid tiny house in a solar powered work shop in Nova Scotia, Canada with her business partners, Jennifer and James, from Full Moon Tiny Shelters (

In this video we meet Dawn and learn why she was inspired to build her tiny house, how she adapted her life to fit in a small space, and why she thinks tiny houses are here to stay. We also take a tour of her amazing home.

She loves to cook and spends a lot of time on the floor doing yoga, meditation and sound healing so she designed her tiny house according to her needs with a furniture-less living room and a large galley kitchen giving it a very open concept feel.

The open space in the tiny house has a beautiful energy, especially when Dawn is drumming or playing her monochord. It’s obvious that “Harmony House” was the perfect nickname for this luxury musical micro cabin on wheels.

To heat the tiny house, Dawn has installed a Danish wood stove made by Morsø and she uses sawdust bricks which are more portable for her than firewood. To learn more about the stove:

Full Moon Tiny Shelters has built some of the best quality and most beautiful tiny houses we’ve seen so far and we love that they’re built in an off-grid workshop, too. It’s worth your time to check out the photo gallery on their website and to follow them on Facebook:

    Love her outlook, like that she's pointing out that it cant be that crazy with so many gravitating towards wanting a different way to live as opposed to a typical 30 to 40 yr mortgage.

    There's always laundrymats as well. No big deal..u make concessions. It's well worth it to have minimal expenses and that kind of slave free life. Washer and dryer are not essential in a home.

    See I wouldn't think of it as mooching I would think of it as reason to visit. I don't think we visit people like we use to. I know I don't do as much visiting as I did with my folks growing up with family and friends. I miss the too.
