Minimalist Family Living in a Perfectly Customized Tiny House on Wheels

Bianca, Justin, and their son Bodhi live in this 30-foot long tiny house on wheels and they’ve designed the interior to fit their small family’s lifestyle perfectly! Their current parking arrangement is an example of the land stewardship model meaning they are the secondary dwelling on a piece of land and they take care of the gardens, the chickens, and the bees on the property.

The tiny house was a DIY build that was for sale on Kijiji and they bought it for $60,000 CAD. They added the kitchen, the furniture, and they modified the bathroom themselves to make the home comfortable and functional.

Justin is a Montessori Adolescent Teacher and a Land Steward, and Bianca is a small space designer, a downsizing expert, and a sustainable living specialist. You can follow Bianca and find out more about her work here:

What we love about this tiny house interior is that it has flexible spaces. The main floor bedroom is currently Bodhi’s bedroom as well as the closet space for the whole family, but when he’s older, they could easily swap sleeping spaces and give him the loft. The living room can also be configured as a dining space, a guest bedroom, or a safe sleeping space for a parent and child if someone isn’t feeling well. And finally, the kitchen is intentionally extremely minimalist (for example, no oven or permanent cook space) so that it can be used in many different ways, and they have an induction burner, a BBQ, and there is an oven in the main building on the property that they can use on special occasions.

We hope you enjoyed this full tiny house tour and meeting the lovely and alternative Metz family!!

    Yo guys! You'll probably never read this, but what type of camera/lens do you use? I film my entire Youtube channel w/ a GoPro Hero 8… looking to upgrade soon lol. If you happen to be around in the spring, I'm driving the truck house cabin down from Alaska to the lower 48 to do some overlanding and business.

    Hmmmm no. Imo when there are kids involves in such a small space, what happens when the child becomes a teenager and needs space? That small bedroom isnt enough. Get up get out and get a job where you can get a bigger house and stop playing doll room couch and dining table is tragic…not impressive lol.

    Have to ask…what do people do with their sewage? I assume this family deposits it on the property but what do more mobile compost toilet users do? Where does it go? Tks.



    Wednesday, the second week of December. Time flies. This is the end of the year, so…
    I hope you this week will be a healthy/feeling week. ^O^

    It's so hard to live in a tiny home in Ontario, as with everything else in this province, very outdated regulations and backwards thinking. Meanwhile housing is unsustainably insane, a million dollars for a tiny 1950s bungalow, barf.
