This Is What Happens When A Woman Gets Sick Of Divorce And Mortgages. And It’s Brilliant.

Macy Miller is an architect from Idaho that had a BIG dream about a tiny house. She had always wanted a place of her own, but the thought of a mortgage sickened her after she lost her home to foreclosure after getting divorced. So, her dream revolved around building a compact, but beautiful home. For two years, Macy worked on the 196 square-foot home, dedicating her free time to building the small paradise. Finally, construction has finished on her little hideaway… and it’s hard not to be jealous of this place, no matter how small it looks on the outside. After all, it only cost about $11,000.

Now, after getting divorced and losing her house to foreclosure, Macy Miller has followed her dream and is free. We can’t help but respect that!

    Amazing! As Paul Simon said “Just slip out the back Jack and get yourself free!”. Oh and Karl… maybe she likes the afternoon sun.

    My husband and I have camped for 46 years. We currently hade a 30 ft. Fifth wheel, three slides, all the comforts and we can pull our home on wheels anywhere in the US. Love your lady!

    It’s beautiful! I’m a Realtor and show houses. Some Buyers complain …”the bedrooms are too small”, “there is no closet space”…. We are spoiled nowadays. Let’s use some creative thinking and vision on how to organize and utilize a space. MACY- GREAT JOB ON MAKING THIS YOUR HOME AND LIVING MORTGAGE FREE!

    I think that is really cool and that lady has a lot of chutzpah accomplishing that project – good on her! The lack of a foundation should keep the taxes on that residence low.

    The roof slopes the wrong way! The porch should be on the east end and out of the afternoon sun.

    What a wonderful job. Going off grid doesn’t mean that you have to poop in an outhouse at midnight. :-)
