Luanne decided to retire and downsize to a tiny house, which completely changed her life for the better. She was always interested in tiny homes and saw it as a freeing option for her retirement. Living in a tiny home meant she could comfortably live on social security without worrying about high mortgage or maintenance costs.
She got her tiny home, named “The Nest,” from the Incredible Tiny Homes Community in Newport, Tennessee. It cost $79,000 and measured 10 feet wide by 28 feet long. Living in this community was affordable, with a $200 monthly lot rent and additional fees for water and electricity.
Luanne loved decorating her home for Christmas, and despite its size, she made sure to add holiday cheer both inside and outside. Each home in the community was provided with a shed for storage.
Inside her home, Luanne’s holiday decorations created a cozy atmosphere. She had a small Christmas tree, a red wooden chair, and a wreath on her door. Despite the small space, her home felt open and welcoming, with a big window by the door.
Her living room featured a couch big enough for a few people, a fireplace, and a Christmas tree with stockings. The kitchen was well-equipped, with shelves for storage and holiday accents.
Luanne also had a workspace and dining table, where she enjoyed doing crafts and arts. She placed a birdfeeder by the window to watch birds.
Storage was not an issue in her tiny home. She had a cabinet from Ikea that provided plenty of storage space for clothes, linen, and craft supplies.
Her bathroom was compact but functional, with a washer-dryer, toilet, and shower. Upstairs, her bedroom had Christmas decorations and enough space for a queen-sized bed and a bookshelf.
Living in her tiny home simplified Luanne’s life and gave her financial freedom. She no longer had to worry about a mortgage, and her house was completely paid for.
