Our Tiny Home Story
Howdy I’m Kat, my better half is Ty, our trusty bulldog is Chompers and our THOW is TinyKat.
I can tell you we didn’t start out saying, “Hey let’s look for a 172 square foot tiny home!”. We were unsure what we were looking for but we had a few ideas of how we wanted to use it. We both agreed whatever “it” was “it” needed to be on wheels, provide the luxuries of a traditional home and needed to be affordable. We started out looking at RV’s, from canned hams to fifth wheels and Air Streams, none of them compelled us enough to pursue. We started our online search for THOW builders just to see if there were any in our area. A Google search led us to Escape, a tiny home builder in Rice Lake Wisconsin. One look at their tiny homes put me in the car on Friday at 3am heading up to Rice Lake to meet the owner, Dan. Once at Escape I found Vista which is a 21” THOW we named TinyKat, it contains all the features we were looking for and in some cases more. We do not live in it full time, which I think is advisable if your ultimate goal is to live in a tiny house. We’ve been fortunate enough to travel with it and see all aspects of TinyKat positive and negative. At this moment in time we are just using it for travel in hopes to park it in Austin Texas but alas the universe controls our fate…. So we will continue the journey!
