    (I wouldn't mind living in this tiny house one bit!)

    "In this weeks episode we travel to the winterless North of New Zealand to visit an inspiring couple who have built an out-of-this-world tiny house with a parking spot that you won't believe!

    There's a saying in the tiny house world that home is where you park it, and this tiny house really has found an amazing place to call home that's private, elevated and with spectacular, panoramic ocean views.

    Paula and Liam worked hard to make their dream tiny house come true, living in a motorhome while working full time and saving all their money in order to build their tiny house on wheels. This couple is living proof that with a lot of will power and hard work, dreams really do come true."

    Tiny homes are marvellous. I think the tiny home community is special. There seems to be some unique souls exploring the tiny home phenomenon.

    They seem to be popping up everywhere these days. Even here in Morro Bay what we used to call "trailer parks" are replacing the old trailer with the new "tiny homes". They are the new affordable homes of the future.
    As a person who used to work at an RV park I have seen how popular they are becoming and as a person who used to live in an RV I know we can get used to small efficient spaces (no room for junk we don't need).
    The nice thing about these tiny homes is when you get tired of one location you can hitch up and pull it to somewhere else...and always have your home with you.

    I wish these communities grow and grow around the world, we need more of that.

    Here where I live is very hard if not impossible to find tiny homes, I saw one a while ago, but it was abandoned, kind of partially destroyed by the weather.

    A bit off-topic..
    Years ago I tried hard to buy an RV (travel trailer), not to live inside but to have trips and go camping, I gave up the idea, this country is NOT a RV friendly place, the only company I found from England they build it and the price is absurd, the price of 3 or 4 in US haha
    If in US you can buy a second hand RV for around $10K (not great shape I know), here you won't find anything for at least $50K!!! Also there is no second hand market for this things here, I end up with an old toyota pickup and a tent for camping!!!
